“Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for his steadfast love endures forever; to him who alone does great wonders, for his steadfast love endures forever;”
Thanksgiving is in the air! And so is Christmas! It seems like every year, the lines continue to blur as to when to put away the pumpkins and drag out the trees. But may I pose the idea that you can decorate with both in mind?
On Tuesday, Katy and I went to the Caroline House at Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham to attend a lovely Christmas tour. After a light breakfast and a program of music, ballet, and an inspirational speaker we were welcomed into this beautifully decorated house. While most rooms were decked out for Christmas, I am showing you the sunroom today because it lent itself to both Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Stay tuned as I will show you more!
The pineapple is a symbol of hospitality…fresh fruit is perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas! My eye was immediately drawn to the cross on the window! The pops of orange bring in autumn! The tree made of fresh greenery and flowers was the piece de resistance! Just beautiful! The antique bread bowl with pumpkins, pears, and wheat is mixed in the room with touches of Christmas…a blend of both holidays! Apparently someone sat on the sofa and messed up the pillow. Do you see it?! The decorator in me has tried to reach into this photo several times to straighten it! No luck! French side chair with velvet upholstery! The fresh floral arrangements throughout the house were gorgeous! The house had two dining rooms. This table was set along with two other round tables in the less formal space! Do you mix autumn and Christmas decor?
Do you begin Christmas decorating on Friday after Thanksgiving?
