Christmas Decorating at MIL's

My Mom-in-Love's birthday is December 7th and every year she has the same request for her birthday present..."Please decorate my house for Christmas!" :-)  So this past Sunday I happily complied!
Steve and I went over at noon and rolled up our sleeves and got to work.

This is a closeup of a Santa arrangement I made on her coffee table in her living room..

Steve created this village on top of a console..

Don'tcha just feel like you could move there?

Underneath the console that Steve arranged the village, I created a vignette of carolers..

The mantle of Santas..

An arrangement on her dining table. Darlou had bought some new goodies that I had fun playing with!

Even decked the halls!

....a close up of said hall...

Well, I am putting some finishing touches on my own home, getting ready for the newspaper reporter this Thursday! I'll try to post a few pics tomorrow!
"Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la la la la la la....."!
