This year I decided I want a simple exterior and was again inspired by:
Ballard Design Catalogs
This entry is so classic & clean to me...I love it!
I went shopping in the garage and found a basic faux wreath and hung my "JOSEPH" stocking from (previously in kitchen. lol)
I also shopped the garage again and found a 8ft piece of faux garland and created a little swag that I will be adding to with fresh greens from our huge tree out front. I also relocated the 2 ft tree my 3 year decorated in the dining room. I put it into my favorite urn and ta-da my own little outdoor lit tree.
At 10:30 on Sunday.....after my teething baby fell asleep I got around to sprucing up my door wreath w/ fresh cuttings from our tree outside. I need to work on the swag next, but Im posting and will update later. (I'll be adding till Christmas Day!) lol
You can see the fresh clippings from our huge Christmas tree out front have a silvery tone to them...I like it.
Its's lot fuller now. Now sure if I want to add a bow or not and if so in what color. lol
Our Holiday Door.
Link up to my favorite hostess of fabulous parties:
Originally the frame was very hard and I could move it at all, but 9 a.m. this morning as I'm standing outside while its snowing (yes just little flurries in NJ, but still a wonderful sign for a possible white Christmas) I couldn'
t but stare at my round wreath on my oval door. So you know what I did...........wait for it.........I squeezed that bad boy into an oval.
Thanks Olive for the little push....I love it so much better than before.
I finally braved the cold weather and went outside to bulk up the swag above the door w/ some fresh greens. Even with gloves on my fingers were not only frozen but and beaten up from the sharp needles on the branches. Here it is (no decision on a bow yet).
They are now the same width/style
Simple & classic
This is our beautiful Christmas outside in front of the house
These beauties have not been kind to my hands this year
