I love everything about this picture...the wreaths, the blue door, the lanterns. It looks so classic, but in a fresh way. Does that make any sense?
Speaking of classics....
Burlap and silver, on my!
How cute and easy is this one?
I think my favorite look is the wreaths hung on windows. However, my house only has a few windows on the front (something about living in the desert and not wanting to let too much sun in). So, wreaths out front wouldn't really work. But, I have five windows along the back of my house in the living and dining room. I thought it would be cute to put wreaths on the interior.
Michael's had all of their wreaths 50% off, so I got a great deal on all of the wreaths I needed and proceeded to hang them. I love the look of fresh greenery, but it's not an option for me. I'm allergic to it and in my dry climate it would turn brown almost immediately.
Here's my dining room and its wreaths.
A few years ago, I made this ornament wreath, by stringing ornaments on a coat hanger formed in a circle.
The wreaths continue along the family room windows.
I hung a mercury glass ornament in the middle of each wreath and then put a few silver balls on each wreath. My uncle and aunt have given my family these collectible silver balls for years and I wanted somewhere special to display them, rather than just mixed in on the tree.
Here's a peek at the tree and looking back towards the dining room and its wreaths.
Of course, a visit to my home would not be complete without a sneak peak of our little Christmas pup, Emma, undecorating the tree!

Green and Silver Christmas Mantle: Do you have oranges in your stockings on Christmas morning? I did a little research to see where this tradition originated.
