Is it too early for Christmas decor?

Depends on who you are and what makes you happy.
I think you know what makes the redhead happy.
Decorating.
I’m going with my gut, and starting early.
This way, if you like one of my ideas,
you will  have plenty of time to try it :)

I was inspired, and whenever I am inspired by someone else I always disclose who it was.  It wouldn’t be fair otherwise.

Pottery Barn did it again.
Those darn catalogs.

Love their Christmas decorating.
When ever I see one in the mailbox
I know I’m in trouble.

I saw these lanterns with the bulbs inside and fell in love.
Now if you don’t have lanterns you have several options.I purchased mine a couple years ago at Marshall’s.
The little one was $9.99
and the big one was $19.99.
I know Hobby Lobby has lots of inexpensive ones too.
If you want to use what you have,
consider a vase, a bowl, or even a basket.Here’s my version…
and quite honestly I like it better than PB.
Pottery Barn Knock Off Decor
As you can see, adding some lights really make these guys pop, and set the mood.Do I here Bing singing????Here’s what I did…
I cleared everything off of my foyer table and started with a blank slate.
The lanterns I had which I mentioned above.
The lights are a string of white Christmas lights I also had.
I bunched the lights up gently on the lantern floor.
I used one set total, and hid the cord in the back.
I chose red and white Christmas bulbs/ornaments
from my Christmas decorations.
I stuck a few (unwrapped) leftover candy canes from last year in there too.After I had those finished, I wanted something natural to add in.
We have lots of Pine trees in our neighborhood, and a couple in our yard, so Rick went out in the DARK last night and found the Pine cones and branches.
What a peach he is.I added them to our favorite bowl my Brother, Bobby,  gave to us for our wedding,
and then Daphne suggested the tea lights.
She’s good!

Those skis are really starting to fit in now!
Love,

  3. Susan Fluter says:

    Any info on where to purchase that rug in the entryway? You are very talented!

  4. Mel says:

    Okay, so this is probably a silly question, but are the lights battery operated? And if not, how did you get the cord out of the lantern without it looking funky and hide the wires to plug it in? :-)

    • Julie says:

      Good question Mel! No, they are not battery operated. The cord fit under the door on mine. Where there’s a will…there’s a way :)

    This display is beautiful and “it looks” like it would be simple to make but probably mine would look like hodgepodge..I’m not very creative but this looks simple and yet so elegant. Thanks for sharing your idea. Merry Christmas!

  6. Michelle says:
