I thought I would share some pictures
that I snapped of the Living Room before
our Company Christmas party began.
We decided to hold the party at our home this year
in order to save money for the company.
I liked the idea for two reasons;
one~ it would get me motivated to get the house ready for
Christmas, and two~ I thought it would be cozier than
having the party at a restaurant or another venue.
I did a big tree this year instead of the tabletop tree
that I had last year.
The color scheme this year is gold, white
and a touch of aqua blue.
Even though my tree has over 750 lights on it I added 6
more strands so that it really shines at night!
The mantle this year is also very simple.
Just layers and layers of greenery
with a few sparkly touches added.
Do you remember my mantle from last year?
My Decor Steals Angel Wings!
I love them but they didn't make it out this year.
I reused the mantle piece that Mr. Beaux made for me last
year to extend the depth of the mantle.
I layered garland that I already had along with new wispy
garland that I bought at Nell Hill's
I hung a pre-lit wreath in the center of the fireplace
and tucked in a few birds and pinecones.
I love the movement of the pine branches from Nell Hills.
Sparkly icicle garland and snowflakes
make the mantle very wintery.
You can see the original post Here.
Next to the fireplace I set this urn with greens
and glittery ribbon and a silver gazing ball
in the middle.
The beautiful thing about decorations like this
is that I can keep them out through January.
On the other side of the room the Wine Cabinet
is set with a Wintery scene as well.
Fresh flowers for the party sit inside a
silver champagne holder.
Some of the elements from last years mantle now grace the top of the Wine Cabinet.
For our Company Charity this year I organized
through a great organization
They help families in need in Kansas City all year long.
The office had fun buying gifts for our "adopted" family
and brought them to the Christmas Party.
Giving back is what Christmas is all about.
Until Next Time,
