Christmas Tree Decorating

Photo's Courtesy of http://www.backyardlandscape.net/decorated-christmas-tree/

Decorating for  Christmas is half the fun of the holiday, the Christmas tree is always the centerpiece, followed by wreaths and garlands. Personally I think the smell of a fresh tree is best but it has it's drawbacks such as keeping it alive and fresh. Whereas the artificial trees are more convenient. 

Than deciding on a theme each year or as most people do have a more personal general theme and add new decorations each year. Having a new theme each year would be very costly. But having a more personal family tree will make it a tradition which is what Christmas is all about, isn't it?

Whatever tree, fresh or fake, wishing you and yours a blessed, Merry Christmas !!

Transitional wreaths

Inspired wreath 

We are working on making wreaths that are transitional, "Transitional wreath" ---- Hang this beautiful wreath to transition before AND after Christmas and before Spring the flower gives a hint of the beautiful Spring to come.
Will be adding more as we complete them.

Wreaths add a beautiful touch not only to your front door, welcoming friends, family and guests but can also be used on mantels,  living room walls, etc.  Be inspired!

Making the kid's table fun

Tree of thanks 

Thank-You Tree

Remind the kids that the holiday is about more than food and football with this pretty paper tree from Frog Prince Paperie. Guests can write down what they’re grateful for on a paper leaf and tie it on a branch with ribbon. By the end of the evening, the kids’ table centerpiece will be emboldened with fall colors and personal touches.
