I know many of you are always eager to see my Mom's holiday decor, so I took lots of pictures for you girlies. I swear this lady should have been an interior designer (and still should!), because everything is always so picture perfect. If you think it looks warm and cozy in the pictures, you should BE there. It's just home.
Mom adorned my bed with new flannel sheets with red and white snowflakes on them, an oversized soft PB pillow and throw blanket - all of which I got to keep. It was like sleeping in the clouds of Heaven.
Our Christmas jammies were at the end of the bed.
The dresser was gorgeous. I got to keep these things, too! YAY!! Big flickering candles are my favorite. So soothing - I slept with them on. :)
The bathroom was flowing with bath goodies for me and Husby, my brother and his wife and my grandma - all who spend the night. It was so fun picking new things off the tree to use each day.
When you walk through the front door, you are greeted with a beautiful white and gold tree. It was marvelously beautiful! It was decked in horns and crowns, representative of THE KING!
And her lavish nativity!
"It is finished."
The den is the coziest spot and the Old World tree sits in there, dripping with colorful ornaments!
This year's table theme was T'was The Night Before Christmas. It was awesome!!
A Fitz & Floyd Santa sat in the middle of the table, and the transferware dishes had bits of T'was The Night Before Christmas on them. SO pretty!!
The party favors were these adorable little lit candles. Oh, I loved them!
We had the entire family over for Christmas Eve and about 1pm that afternoon, my mom got SUPER sick and had to spend the entire day in bed. All that work and she missed out on the family and the dinner. We all felt so bad for her that after everyone left, we got busy and took down all the decorations for her and put them away in the barn. When we woke her up that night to open presents, she was beyond thrilled. One less thing to stress about! She always goes above and beyond to make everything so extraordinarily special for us, we wanted to show her in some tangible way just how much we love and appreciate her.
