Christmas at Blumenau

Every year my family celebrates Christmas eve at my sister Leah's house.  She has a great eye for decorating and everything always looks so gorgeous and festive. Yesterday she invited Kasidee, my granddaughter, and I to lunch. We had such fun, and also got a sneak peak of her decorating ideas this year.

For lunch she made a "Raggedy Ann" salad and a cute little ham and cheese sandwich in the shape of a heart.

Then we all went out to feed the chickens, pulling some grapevine to take home with me on the way back to the house. Hopefully I'll make something somewhat resembling a wreath out of it.

I thought I would post a few of the pictures I took for you to see. I didn't get alot because her decorating is a work in progress but I'll go ahead and get up the ones I have.

Her colors this year are lime, blue, and copper with some silver and black thrown in.

These urns are super easy to make, she layed a wire wreath on top and filled it with several different fresh greens from around her place and stuck straight sticks out of the top. Gorgeous!

Grapevine was swirled above her double doors with a few hanging ornaments and a wreath hung in the middle. "Simply Elegant".

Oh how I love Christmas and all the creative decorating that goes on. I would love to see your decorations or hear your creative ideas. If you would like to share them with the rest of us just leave a note below with any pictures and I will get them up.

The Holidays are upon us. Yea!!!!
