Christmas Decorating

The weekend went by too quickly.  Holiday weekends seem to do that!  I spent part of the weekend decorating for Christmas.  I’m not sure why this process takes so long, but it does.  All over my neighborhood people were busy decorating.   Thousands of lights went up on houses, and front yards were filled with snowmen and other delights. The neighborhood took on a new look! Isn’t it amazing what we do for Christmas?

I try every year to change things around a bit and not duplicate the previous year.   Do you put everything in the same place each year, or do you change things around?  Do you have a decorating plan?  Tell me your secrets!

Last year, Brigette gave me this wonderful pink sign for Christmas. 

My favorite sign

This year it became the focus of my dining room hutch.  These pink lambs are feeling right at home!

Pink Christmas

And speaking of pink, the snowmen that you saw in an earlier post, are at home on my dining room table, in front of a bowl full of pink…

Snowmen decorate the table

…you’ll have to wait to see inside the bowl.  Too much of a pink fix for one post.  I’ll show you more later!

Happy Monday everyone!

  • Anonymous - Love to see how you decorate. Anxious to see how you use your scottie dogs you were making.


  • mimi'sdarlins - Love your pink Christmas! I tend to decorate the same each year, as it would take me weeks if I had to think up new ideas…besides, it's only for a month, so I don't tire of it. My secret is to take photos of different vignettes so I can duplicate them.ReplyCancel

  • PamKittyMorning - Anne I'm dissapointed you didn't put that plan into action, but it does look like you got the work done anyway!!!ReplyCancel

  • Cara - I have a few staples – decorations that are the same every year – but for the most part I open the boxes and just put things where the mood strikes.ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - I so enjoy seeing your decorating….I need a mansion so I can decorate each wing differently…a pink wing indeed. I do decorate basically the same each year…but always with a twist. Our kids are now adults and seem to claim a treasure or two from here each year. Kristy in OhioReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - Pretty in Pink! Love those little lambs and the little snowmen!

  • Carolyn - I put out the same things in basically the same places every year, because that's where they fit! I'm not decorating until after I take my state real estate licensing test on Thursday, so maybe I'll think about switching things up this year!ReplyCancel

  • Nanbon44 - I fill my yard with those blow up figures and each year we add new ones and they change their position every year. In the house I normally stay close to the same, but last year I said I was tired of it all. So after Christmas I bought a new tree, ornaments and other decorating items and this year my house will be totally different. Before Burgandy and gree, this year purple,gold,copper and brass colors. Love the after Christmas sales

  • QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI - Hi Anne–Love the pink too–have a story–a girl-friend stopped in today and I have alot of my decorating done–trees up etc–we got to talking and she said she stopped at one place and seen a "pink" tree and thought "HOW awful–pink–no!!!" then she had to stop somewhere else at a friends and there was a pink tree–it was all done with homemade ornaments in burgundy and pink–she said she fell again–this time in love!!!!
    and what is really funny is I have decided that if there are any left after Christmas I want one for my bedroom which is "pink"–how funny!!!
    hug, Di Oh my tree is always done in old family ornaments–but i also do other trees–smaller ones and they have different themes and these change each year for the most part!!!ReplyCancel

  • My Little Family: - I do something different each year but not terribly different. I do additions and subtractions each year and/or change color schemes.

    This year is nutcracker year. I have them everywhere – including the bathroom!ReplyCancel

  • Ronda - My kid who are grown (baby boy 20, middle boy 25 oldest boy 26)think that everything shoud look the same. The tree right by the fireplace same stockings as every year ( No changing mom), but anne I am like you, I dont want to do it all the same every year so I sneak in a change now and then. Oh tradition!ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - OH what darling lambs!!! My nativity set always goes in the family room as the tree is always in the living room. Our dining room looks down to the living room so as soon as the tree is up we eat all meals in dining room to enjoy the tree, decorations and fire in the livingroom fireplace. I finally took a photo of the railings that I decorate each year so I do not have to reinvent the wheel. I can just look at the photo and know how many bars to skip and drape and not run out before I reach the other side! Look forward to seeing more of your decorations!!! Would love to see your storage system come January for all these precious treasures.(hint hint)

  • Blessedmom's Simple Home - I love that pink sign and the hutch looks so pretty. I can't wait to see the rest. Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Loraine - Your "pink" Christmas is just about the cutest decorating theme ever! I have been so inspired by it. It's been difficult to figure out how to add pink to my "dark and dirty" theme that I've had for so many years. Next year, I should have a better handle on it, when I can finish A Vintage Christmas and A Tisket A Tasket quilts.
    Take Care! I love it all!ReplyCancel

  • Annie - Jean Wells once told me that you needed to put a little bit of the color you hate in every quilt. Guess what mine was…PINK. Although I didn't follow Jean's advice about every quilt, I started making "some" quilts with pink…hot pink that is and now I even enjoy the soft pink…the new color I dislike is now Blue!ReplyCancel

  • beth - a pink christmas sounds great to me! We want to see some more!ReplyCancel

  • Four O'Clock Quilt Company - I would LOVE a pink Christmas. My main tree is white and silver and some pink… but a full out pink Christmas? I could only dream! Can't wait to see more.ReplyCancel
