Decking the Halls - at home Christmas 2011

So we have had the tree and decorations up for a week or so now, our earliest ever! 
I thought I would show you some pics of our home decorated. 
When it came to our "Christmas Colours" this year I just couldn't decide on an accent colour so I stuck with green, silver and white.
Very fresh and simple but who know's I might still add a colour!



The front door, love my garlands!


As you walk in the front door, a mini wooden Christmas Tree and a framed Christmas message :)


Walking through the house with more garlands around the door.
 I just noticed it is coming away from the  frame so Simon will have to fix that, otherwise I won't fit and will have to walk through sideways! 



Also my friend Prancer keeping watch over my desk. Watch your eyes on the antlers! Jasper likes to give him a pat as he walks by :)







The lounge area. 
As we are hosting Christmas Day this area will be where we will have lunch, set for 20 so I have a few ideas for the table decorations too.



The tree, with most of the presents done. Yay!


All the ornaments are white and silver this year. 
It's nice to have a change :)


The tree lit up. Ahhhhh.....

So there you have it our Christmas Decorations for 2011. I usually use the same pieces for a few years with a few new ornaments added each year. The garlands are a new addition this year and I am looking forward to using them for years to come. I ordered them online and I'm so happy with them. 
Here is how we spent Christmas last year :)

So is your tree up? Are your presents done?
Are you hosting Christmas lunch this year?

  4. Leanne, I ordered the garlands online. I think it was called the Christmas Warehouse or something like that. I just googled it but they were located in Sydney I think. x

  19. It's gorgeous Simone! You're so organised with all your presents done already! I still have stacks left to do. But, with the forecast for this weekend rain and more rain, Christmas shopping is a perfect indoor activity. With every other man and his dog! Love your reindeer too, very handsome! gxo
