This week we’ve been getting ready for our annual Christmas party. Believe it or not, I was still decorating yesterday (the day of the party)! Where did the time go this year?
We did get three Christmas trees up and decorated this year. The tall one in our living room is our standard tree with the kids’ ornaments. But this year, we added a small noble fir in our dining room (decorated in snowflakes) and a tiny one in our family room with bright, vintage ornaments.
I’ve posted some quick snapshots of Christmas vignettes throughout our home.
I love hanging decorative wreathes on mirrors. The picture above left, is our bar and the picture on the right is our entry table.
In our hallway, we display a collection of old vintage santas.
In our family room, we traditionally decorate with snowmen. Since my maiden name is “Snow”, I have collected snowmen and snowflakes for years.

Sneak Peak at Roger’s Garden
Last week, my girlfriends and I went to Roger’s Gardens (in Newport Beach) to see the Christmas displays. Every year, Roger’s creates a beautiful display of Christmas trees and holiday home decor. It’s a great place to get inspired for the holidays!
