We're entertaining tomorrow and I finally finished our Christmas decorating. Starting at the front door, I used lots of fresh greens and bows. It might seem silly to use this antique winter sports equipment in Georgia, but I hadn't used it in years and I wanted to pull it out again.
This old sled is a left-over from when I owned an antique business.
These single runner skates are a present from a former skating partner of Mr. Pressed Pants. He used to be a professional ice skater many, many years ago.
These are usually on display on our terrace level family room.
Come inside! Here's what will greet you in the foyer.
These dogs get their own fresh greens and........
they hang out with this fleet of nutcrackers.
This was our living room a few days ago. I posted more pictures of it here.
And here's what it looks like tonight.
I use bright green, rosy red and white balls with green silk hydrangeas.......
and little stuffed pheasants.
The fireplace mantle is graced with our good old stuffed pheasant.
At Thanksgiving, he sat in our dining room on the chest.
I put only a couple of large things on top of the armoire. Look closely for the red glass ball on the antlers.
This silver tray is filled with silver vintage and reproduction items. I have it on the glass coffee table.
On top of some Christmas books, I've placed our silver antlers and an old silver stag inkwell is beside it, as well.
These skaters were also a gift.
Even the dogs get a little Christmas color.
The Chairman of the Board gets a little special attention, too.
More stags with satin bows.
I've vacuumed the stray needles, stored the boxes, lit the fire, and now Mr. Pressed Pants is pouring the wine. What a guy!
Linky parties are so great this week with lots of pretty posts.
