Welcome to day one of the Christmas Open House blog hop.
Over the next three days some of my favorite bloggers will share their holiday decor with you.
Grab a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy the tour .
Happy Holidays and welcome to our home. When you come through the front door you walk right
into an enclosed courtyard. This is my favorite part of our home and I had plans to go all out in this area. I visualized hula hops covered with lights and hung from the screened porch and lots and lots of lights. Unfortunately a back injury required me to reign in my plans, especially any requiring a ladder!
We did some simple decorating in the courtyard.
Fresh greenery is something I always use in our home during the holidays. Did you know that Lowes
gives you as much as you want for free? I have mixed some faux red berries in with holly berries cut
Come on inside. I’ll crank the air conditioning up and show you around
Our little flocked tree is done in turquoise and silver this year and I have several vignettes in the same color.
Of course I had to add some coastal decor ….I do live in Florida after all.
Aren’t these oyster shell the cutest? These were a win from my friend Ron at Uptown Acorn.
You can see HERE a larger coastal vignette I created in our former home.
The red and white transferware decided the color of the decorations in the kitchen. Some of you may have seen my post Christmas Project~OH DEER
. If you missed it just click on the title and it will take you to that post.
We had some of our new neighbors over last night and everyone enjoyed desserts and the hot cocoa bar.
Thanks so much for visiting! I am still working on decorating the other rooms and I’ll be back soon to show you more.
Below is the schedule for the Christmas Open House blog hop. I hope you will visit each of these talented bloggers for some amazing inspiration.
