Country Christmas in the Sunroom

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

We just returned late last night from Florida, where we spent Thanksgiving..

~ ~ and celebrated my mom’s 88th Birthday.

This morning I hit the ground running and resumed the Christmas decorating.

No one room is entirely done, so I shall show you snipits of the sunroom Christmas decor.

Christmas 2013 Sunroom

I purchased a vintage galvanized pail at an estate sale..

~ ~ and thought it would be a great container for the sunroom tree.

This particular small faux tree has a great variety of evergreen branches..

~ ~ and I added a a pine cone ever green garland along with a grapevine with red berries.

I topped the tree with a “Santa Star” made from a vintage quilt.

This other galvanized item in the sunroom needed some “Christmas cheer”

I drew from my stash of winter faux stems ~~

Now the hanging scale is looking pretty festive.

Adding a little Christmas “fluff” here and there…

Added some faux evergreen to the cotton arrangement..

Still working on this room and hope to present the entire room soon.

I seem to be jumping from room to room ~ ~ A Bit of Christmas decorating ADD..


And here is my mom being surprised at her birthday party..

~ ~ she thought she was just meeting us at the restaurant for dinner.

She wondered why we wanted her to dress up in her kimono.


How wonderful does she look for “88 years young” !!!

Hope you and your families had a wonderful Thanksgiving…

I will be working round the clock on decorating for Christmas..

~ ~ as I will be joining those wonderful ladies for a “Deck the Halls” Christmas Tour this week!!


Have a wonderful day!!

    Your mom looks amazing. I’m sure she had a wonderful birthday. We surprised my mom on her 90th. We should probably be more careful about that as they get up in years LOL.

  9. The sunroom is really coming together, I lov this tree and in the bucket it looks so cool!!
