    Here are some photos of my living room all ready for Christmas.


    This is our main tree. It's mainly decorated with spun and clear glass ornaments, but there are ornaments on the tree that my children made in school.



    There are also pink sparkly ornaments scattered around the tree.


    The fireplace mantle...


    Curio cabinet and hall tree...



    The village is set up on top of my piano.


    Have you been Naughty or Nice this year?? icon_twisted.gif


    On the coffee table are two of my Snow Queen figurines...


    I made the beaded ornament cover for this ball several years ago.

    So much eye candy!

    I snapped a couple of pictures this morning. I'm not quite finished, but I agree, do the whatever you can in advance. It takes off much pressure.

    Oh - my - goodness!!! How gorgeous!!

    Dreamgoddess, your house looks fantastic! You have the most beautiful things, and your house looks as if it was built during the Edwardian era (my favourite).

    Gailangg, what lovely plates and colours!!!

    The living area of our home is open-plan, and somehow does not lend itself to the enchanting fairyland atmosphere that Dreamgoddess conjured up. Also, it's midsummer, which takes away a lot of the traditional magic!! icon_sad.gif So my table is extremely plain.

    We're only 4 for Christmas Eve tonight (sister and BIL too) and none of us can be with our children and grands this year. Sad, but not practically possible.

    Gailanng, your table is gorgeous! I love the dishes you you know the pattern name? Also, in the second photo, what kind of serving utensils are those in the front? I would love to see a closeup photo of them.

    Zurie, your table looks so elegant! I love how you used the black plates in the setting. You know, I was reading a blog yesterday and the lady had set her Christmas table using black, white and gray. It had that same elegant look as your table does. Are those ornaments scattered down the center of the table?

    Unfortunately, my home isn't that old. I think it was built in the 1940's, so it's just an old house with lots of quirks...rooms not square, floors and ceiling that slope in places. My dream is to have a true Victorian home with large rooms, high ceilings and a turret...oh well, one can always dream. I don't foresee this one ever happening though. icon_cry.gif

    Since we have so many family gatherings to work around at Christmas time, my children (well, the ones that are grown and have left home) always come home for dinner on Christmas night and we exchange gifts then.

    I set up the island in my kitchen for my grandsons using a snowman theme. I wish I had used a white tablecloth so it would look more "snowy", but I put it together really quickly and honestly didn't even think about a tablecloth.

    Thank you, Dreamgoddess. The plates were sold at Dillards. They're called Fruit Amore by Nobel Excellence. I bought some of the round and square plates last year.

    Those 3 pieces are an antler-handled carving set. I love their rusticy appearance. I started noticing them on some blogs and fell in love. Those in the picture, I won on ebay probably more than a year ago...maybe 2 years ago for about 50 bucks. Right before Christmas I followed a pair (minus the sharpening piece) and I think they sold for about $25. They weren't quite as nubby, but still beautiful.

    Tomorrow I'll take a better picture.

    Here's a closer look at the carving set.

    Oh my goodness, I love those! I would love to have a set of silverware with handles like that. I'm going to check ebay and see if I can find some!

    Dreamgoddess, I don't know if you've ever frequented the blog below, but it's quite jaw dropping. I remembered it as being one with some stag horn pieces. Also, take note of her pantry. You may never come up for air!!! icon_wink.gif

    Really all the photos are beautiful. Decoration is awesome. Now I can say that we should look beyond the traditional Christmas red-and-green color palette for a rainbow of ways we can decorate for the holidays.
