Our New Home's First Christmas Picture Album!


Our first Christmas in our new home is something I dreamed about and I can't believe it is HERE!!

I wanted to share with you how we chose to decorate our home this year. I chose a color scheme of black, white and green with just touches of red.

My wrapping papers set the mood this year. I used varied patterns that were combinations of black and white and green. Of course my signature black and white striped paper was at the base of it all.

We actually had to move our tree this past Monday because our plantation shutters were installed, so we moved the tree and dismantled the mantel.

So we got to do a Christmas do-over!! 

 We are beyond delighted with our shutters. My hand dandy hubby is going to add a top treatment to the shutters. That is on the list for January!

 We did something a bit different this year by adding a swag over the large opening into our great room.

I kept the mantle simple this year and I like the way it compliments the tree and doesn't take away the focus from the tree or the rest of the room.

 Since our TV resides next to the fireplace I also kept my decorations minimal under the TV.

 I am enjoying the simplicity of it all.

From our new home to your home we are wishing you JOY for this Christmas and the upcoming New Year!!
