In Honor Of The King

The theme of my Mom's Christmas table this year was "In Honor of the King". It was adorned with golds, faux jewels, sparkly fruit and a grand Lion and Lamb. It was absolutely breathtaking.






Each place setting had a scroll with a different name for God.



It was just gorgeous! The dishes had beautiful gold crowns of different shapes on each one.


The chandelier had real greenery flowing forth from it and each chandy in the house had a beautiful mistletoe hanging from it. So fun!


She had real gold, frankincense and myrrh on display, and each guest was given a little chest full of replicas.



We were greeted with such a fun room.


My favorite part of it was this .... Christmas sheets!



Even Levi's crib had a Christmas sheet. :)


The guest bathroom was overflowing with goodies for her many guests!



The trees were beautiful.




(The boys were in a constant state of PLAY as you can see.)

Horray for pretty Holiday Homes!!


  1. I have been waiting for this post! Your mom is amazing! She has outdone herself again.

  2. Your mom's decor always amazes me....gorgeous! :)

  3. Oh my goodness! I want to stay at your mom's house for Christmas too :)

  4. This is beyond pretty, this is Amazing! How on earth does she do it? How does she find the time? I'd love to be able to put something like that together, it's beautiful. I love the scrolls with the name's of God on, that's a beautiful idea. It ought to all be in a magazine!

  5. Wow, your Mom is my tablescape hero!!

  6. I "tuned in " this morning to see if you had posted the "annual" Christmas tour - always so lovely and FUN

  7. What exactly do you and your mom put on top of your tree? Its really impressive.

  8. Gorgeous! (and that doesn't even begin to describe it) That table is utterly beautiful and she outdoes herself completely, but this post just demonstrates how much you all really appreciate it.

  9. Unreal! You mom is amazing. Just beautiful!

  10. Wow! Your mother's decor always blows me away! Absolutely gorgeous! I have had those Rosanna Inc. King's Crown dishes on my wishlist forever, but now that we bought a house, they are impossible to find! That's just my luck, but they looked absolutely beautiful on the Christmas table with that great lion and lamb! Loved all the details. The boys looked like they had a lot of fun too! Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!

  11. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!! Your mom did a fabulous job!!! I love the theme! <333

  12. I look forward every year to see what your mom does and I'm always amazed!!

  13. Your Momma's house is sooo pretty. I have in-laws that do the same thing with their guests and I hope to provide the same level of beauty and comfort for our guests too. First I just need to garner myself up a sense of class.

  14. Oh my word! Your mom's decorations are absolutely breathtaking! I bet it makes Christmastime at her house that much more special. :)

  15. The theme was beautiful! The pictures made me cry just thinking about how she honored Christ even in something like a beautiful dinner. I love it!


  16. I've been waiting on pins & needles for this post! I love your mom's house. You should do a tour after the holidays!

  17. Oh, of course that is just LOVELY. How fantastic.

    If you ever have your mom do a little interview post for your blog, here are some questions for her:
    1) When do you decorate, and how long do you leave the decorations up?

    2) What do you do with the different theme decorations? Do you ever reuse them? It seems like you have a lot of sets of specific dishes... what do you do with them for storage in the year? And how can you use them in the future?

    3) What is your favorite Christmas decoration?

    4)You have to admit you go overboard. Or at least all out! Did you have a similar upbringing or is this something you have started to do as an adult? Or even later in life? Did/do your parents decorate like this for Christmas? What is your favorite childhood Christmas memory?

    Whitney, you don't HAVE to ask her these questions, but if you do... post her answers, okay? I think your mother could be the source of a lot of posts, like as a guest author or as the topic for some "scheduled" filler posts when you get busy! :)

  18. Wow! Your mom is a great entertainer!! I love all of the details. The plates are really cute too!

  19. Can I please vacation at your mom's home? Where does she come up with these fabulous ideas? Blown away again. Every time I see pics of her home or yours it makes me want to strive for more...and go shopping :)

  20. Absolutely beautiful! I want to know is how long does it take her to put it all up and take it all down! ha

  21. can i please come to your mom's house for christmas next year?!? looks like i might not be the only guest :). i love all of the thought and love she puts into making the house warm and welcome for your family. very sweet.

  22. WOW that is amazing. She's amazing. Can she teach me?

  23. amazing! Can she come to my house and decorate? lol

  24. Her decor is absolutely amazing!!

  25. Your mom amazes me. Simply amazes me. I would love to be able to do something as amazing as this!!


May the Lord bless you and keep you safe today! Thanks for the comment, friends! :)
