My Decked Halls

Tonight at 10 pm MST is the deadline for entering my Mrs. Christmas Apron.  Click on the picture at left to enter.

Welcome to my Decked Out Holiday Home at Red Couch Recipes.  I was going to offer you a seat in the chairs, but I think they are a little wet!

My ten year-old daughter has been busy making this welcoming snowman.

The sled sits right on the entry stairs outside my front doors.  My sister-in-law Dawnell made the cute snowman sign, or helped me make it, I can't remember!  The sled is a sled from my childhood -- a Royal Racer!

Red felt Christmas bulbs are in my window .

My Nativity and other related "Nativity" things find a home on my buffet.

My tree has a "Nativity" theme.  I am planning to share the whole tree on a later post.

I hang stars, manger scenes, pictures of Jesus, and other things that are "Nativity-related" on my main tree.

As you might have guessed, I love the color red.  I love this tree just dripping with red.

A lot of the felt ornaments are actually giftcard holders.  It's a smaller tree that is placed in a plant stand during the holidays.

My buffet table serves as a spot for Christmas decorating.

Thanks for coming by the home tour at Red Couch Recipes!

Love all your decorations! The Nativity tree is just beautiful. As much as I love the natural subdued tones, I couldn't live without the glittered! Split personality I guess! It's the countdown now till Christmas, I have so much left to do...ahhhh! Still haven't settled on my menu choices for the holiday weekend. I am getting so SLOW!
