The halls have been decked! My goal this year was to not buy any new decorations. I used only what I had from other years but treated myself to a fresh boxwood garland from Prestige Floral. A friend gave me a generous bunch of pine that I used all throughout the house. Generally, everything was kept quite simple.
A look at the living room with our wee tree in the corner. We have nice tall ceilings and have usually chosen a large tree. This always meant that we had to find a spot for our coffee table and chair somewhere else in the house, which felt cramped. This year, we opted for a little untrimmed tree. We got it at a Christmas tree farm this past weekend, after the most beautiful snowfall. It was so beautiful! I only used my most favorite ornaments and it's turned out to be my most favorite tree yet.
The mantel is simply decorated with a piece of the boxwood garland wrapped with copper wire lights. I added feather trees, candlesticks and my favorite little polar bears. The wreath is artificial but it's filled with some real greens to add some fullness. The garlands are painted wood beads and the pompom garland that I made for our tree a couple of years ago.
Beaufort was hamming it up for the camera, wanting to be in every frame.

The stockings are filled with pine until Santa arrives and replaces it will much funner things!
