My Snowy Christmas Great Room

This year my Great Room Christmas decor began with a beautiful flocked tree.

Thus began with the thought of doing a Snowy Christmas theme of

white and neutrals in the room and maybe a pop of color here and there.

Today, my friends and I are partnering with the wonderful company

of Tree Classics for Snowy Sundays, featuring My Snowy Christmas Great Room.

Christmas in the Sunroom

The first room in which I usually initiate my Christmas decorating each year,

other than the foyer, is my Sunroom.

This year was no different. I began decorating the room

by putting up my Memory Tree. The tree that is filled with ornaments

that I have collected and have been gifted to me over many, many years.

I was actually decorating this tree Halloween night!

Yes . . . placing ornaments on the tree in-between answering the calls of the

Trick or Treaters for their treats.

Now, it is definitely Christmas in the Sunroom.

Falling into Christmas

Every year I look forward to the stunning Fall Colors

that grace our beautiful area of our State.

We used to go to the mountains to see the brilliant Fall color,

but all we have to do now, is look outside our windows

or go outside and gaze at the glory of Mother Nature.

I love that this ironstone bowl of boxwood and pineapple

reminds me both of Christmas and Fall with the colors it displays.

So now I am definitely Falling into Christmas.

A Southern Christmas Mantel of Magnolia Leaves

Love Magnolia leaves to decorate the house  for  Christmas, as it is so very Southern.

My Southern Christmas mantel of Magnolia leaves

was the first thing on the agenda for creating my Christmas decor this year.

It seems like styling the mantel is always the first thing that I do,

setting the tone for the room’s decor.

I really kept it very simple this year. Truly, I did. I even surprised myself!

This Year’s Christmas Decorating Inspiration

This year’s Christmas decorating inspiration began with a pillow.

Was it the design or was it the beautiful shades of color that attracted me to it.

I would have to say, both.

When I packed away last season’s Christmas decorations I did a lot of purging . . .

giving away and donating many ornaments and decorations.

I made a decision not to buy any more decorations as I had so much

that I have collected over the years.

But when I saw this pillow, I caved!
