Our "family" Christmas tree (i.e. the colorful one) is right here next to the fireplace, and this year I added a bunch of red ribbon. I love how the red pops against my blue drapes.
Our ancient tree-topper is a cross, which broke this year. My son insisted it still go up, so it is kind of leaning and propped up by all that ribbon, but at least it's up there!
I am so in love with red and aqua this year that I spent hours and hours making my Silhouette advent calender in those colors:

On the coffee table I collected my mercury glass and threw some random garland on there in a big jumble, easy peasy.
Elsewhere, I go more gold, including in the dining room and for my Second Annual Mommy Tree, which also features pheasant feathers and pinecones in a rustic contrast with all that glitz:
And there you have it! I love everything about Christmas, and the decorations are just the smallest part of it, but aren't they fun? If I can get my act together, I will show you some more fun soon. Some fun which all started like this:
And now you know how I've been spending my time:)
