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!

The Year’s Past Christmas Tour

When I begin to decorate my home for Christmas,

I look back on the year’s past Christmas tour to see how I can use my current Christmas

decor in a different way that I had in the past.

While referencing last year’s Christmas tour, I thought that I would present it again

to you and for those who are new to my blog, a chance to see what I did last year.

Decorations once used in the kitchen has landed in my great room this year.

I am dancing to the Christmas Shuffle.

Welcome to my 2015 Christmas Home Tour.

The Christmas Tree at Sunset

I finally decorated the tree that day

and placed the packages and baskets around the tree.

It was getting late.

The sun was setting.

I grabbed my camera to take a few “first” pictures of the tree this year.
