It's beginning to look alot like Christmas....

I am obsessed with decorating! We are hosting Christmas Eve dinner for the first time and I want everything to look very festive. I am getting so much inspiration from all of the blogs I stalk. I just can't get enough of all the creative goodness! Here is what I've done so far:

This is the mantle with the garland inspired by Nester.

The bottom two shelves have my Christmas Village collection.

My new chandelier that my Dad installed for me when they were up for Thanksgiving.

Found these glittery pears at Michael's for .89/each! I love my poinettia plates I got from Garden Ridge last year. They only had 6 left by the time I got to them and I was so sad when they didn't carry them this year. :o(

I love how the dining room turned out. I just finished the window treatments a few days ago. I still need to add the tassel fringe at the top below the black and white plaid.

This is the tree in the entryway. It is made from a tomato cage turned upside down with garland and lights wrapped around. Super easy!

The boys' trees in the hallway by their room. They put all of their handmade ornaments from school on them.

I need to get a pic of our main Christmas tree...I'll add that post later.

Love what you did with the glittered pears and branches on your table. Thats a great idea.

I saw your post on my blog. I got the clipart from Microsoft but I made some changes to it so it was easier to paint. Just search for birds and you'll find it.
