Christmas around the house

Here are a few pictures of the decorations in the front hall, the living room and the dining room.

We hang our stockings on the staircase in the front hall. Family members at our house on Christmas morning get a stocking. All are expected to provide some stocking stuffers for everyone else. Family members who are not home on Christmas morning, receive a small gift-wrapped present to be placed in their stockings at home.

The newel post on the staircase…I hot-glued all the fruit, berries, balls, etc., on the garland.

To the left, as you walk into the living room from the front hall is the nativity set on the old box grand.


The large angel watching over the nativity was a gift from DH several Christmases ago.

The nativity was given to me by my mother years ago. It was painted by her brother’s SIL.


For the mantel, I framed Christmas cards that show the events of Christ’s birth.

The dining room table was set with Christmas china for the house tour. We folded napkins into elfin boots. So cute! I’ll have to take pictures and write a post with directions for you. Here are directions for another elf boot found online.

Later, more pictures from the rest of the house. 🙂 ~~Rhonda

    Did the angel ever get to blow on his horn? I looked for it on the piano, but didn’t see it.

    I noticed that at the concert…he didn’t have his horn! I didn’t look for it, though. Last time I saw it, it was at the base of his pedestal. 🙂 ~~Rhonda
