For the most part, many of us have guests over the holidays.
It is always wonderful to have either family or friends gather together to celebrate
Therefore, it is a good thing to have your guest room ready for either the
expected or sometimes last minute guests.
You’ve heard me say this more than a few times . . . “in keeping with a more simple theme”
I have done just this in the guest room with the Christmas decor.
A couple of pillows added for that pop of red.
A few Christmas/Winter decor items were added to the tables on each side of the bed.
I brought these 2 white glass conical trees into the room this year.
The Christmas Tree print by William Mangum was also moved to the guest room this year.
Using more white in this room this year to coordinate with the white French Country hutch
that I am still working on for the room. This will be my January project.
The feather tree made its return in the guest room again this year along with this cute
print that I bought at the Country Living Fair last year.
The tree sits on a vintage stool that Yvonne found at an antique mall . . .
~ ~ Yvonne was kind enough let it go and to a good cause . . . . me!
A bit of a sneak peek of my French Country Hutch with the wooden graduated Santas.
I take advantage of the after Christmas sales in my area and these wonderful white
ceramic angels were a great find at 75% off and the vases were a part of the same collection
I use the vases in this room year round and love adding the angels at Christmas.
A milk glass basket (a treasure from the past as I saved my S&H Green Stamps to get it)
is filled with ornaments with the colors of the room and another angel from the collection.
The guest room is ready . . . I shall keep the light on!!!
And speaking of guest rooms . . .
It is really not an official guest room, but a room my granddaughter can call her own.
A room STILL a work in progress of adding more pink!
This is what we added . . . for a bit of Christmas decor in her room.
A small pink feather tree with miniature ornaments and a pink vintage cranberry glass
basket adds the right touch of holiday pink decor.
And now on to garlands . . . I love garlands!
They can be long or short, simply decorated or embellished with glitz.
A garland over the French Country hutch simply adorned with pinecones and winterberries.
Ornaments added to this garland on the stairwell ledge. . .
The small garlands at each end of the dining room hutch were adorned with ornaments too.
A pair of glass bells.
Glammed up this garland that is above the secretary . . . need a bit more red in the room.
Over the Grandfather clock . . . .
and over a curio . . . garlands and swags are a staple in my Christmas decor.
Wispy garland of pine . . .
To the bold and beautiful of flocked garland . . .
Just love lots of greenery bringing the outside in.
Doing last minute Christmas preparations as I know most of your are . . .
whether shopping for that last minute gift or putting finishing touches on great Christmas
cookies from a recipe handed down . . . a family favorite.
Wishing you a wonderful day of enjoying this most wonderful season of joy!
