This is my foyer where the snowman tree hangs out...
I covered popcorn tins to look like drums for the large nutcrackers to stand guard on. The topiary trees get wreaths with silk flowers added to their base and gold garland spirals down the trees.
This is the swag at the end of the stairs that connects to the garland going up the stairs.
This chandy is new since last year, and the old fixture was a glass cased shiny brass number that I couldn't decorate, so I was excited to decorate it this year.
This is the Frosty tree that I showed before.
This plaque is directly opposite the front door and stays up year round. It was a gift from youngest DD. The 3 nutcrackers above it are the Magi.
This swag is next to the stairs and the entry to the living room.
This is the ledge above the front door. There are 3 lighted trees up there and a teddy on a sled that I made in the early 80's ( I made the sled and decorated it, the teddy was purchased) The antiques stay up there year round.
The table across from the snowman tree. I made the arrangement, and there is a small nativity set by the base of the candlesticks. The round presents were gold metal cages I bought on clearance after the holidays several years ago. I filled them with clear lights and gold mesh fabric and made the bows for the tops. Unfortunately, I forgot to plug in the lights for the photo, : (
There is also a very sweet Hallmark nativity ornament that I found at ARC this fall hanging from the swag over the mirror. It is the one that looks like a little book.
I forgot to mention in my other posts, there is a nativity set somewhere in EVERY room.
