~We Wish You A Merry Christmas!!~

Well, our halls are all decked; and we're settled in for the holidays! 

In my last post, I promised to share my entry table.
I kept the table decor very simple this year. A wreath was placed on the mirror; and crystal rose bowls, with votives, provide ambient light in the evening. It's such a warm welcome for our guests, with the tree just ahead, in the family room.


The tabletop is a great place to leave small gifts, so I keep some surface space open for those.


At this point, I am going to take some time away and just enjoy my family. The time flies so fast; and I am more than ready to just sit back and enjoy it all!

I'll still pop in to see what all of you are up to...I just won't be posting for awhile. I love seeing all of your holiday decor!



So, from our family to yours...We wish you a very Merry Christmas! May your homes be filled with peace, love, and joy this holiday season!

  41. Your home was so beautifully decorated for Christmas, Shenita! I took a break from blogging and wasn't around much in December, so I'm glad I got to see this. I love your tree and the candleholders. We have some cranberry colored ones similar to those, so I especially enjoyed seeing another way to possibly decorate with them next year. Thanks so much for dropping by my blog today. Happy New Year!
