Welcome to the North Pole! 💈
Today is the 4th day of Celebrate & Decorate’s Holiday Home Tour featuring all different styles of holiday homes and decorations from very creative bloggers
Isn’t it great fun to get a peek of how other people “celebrate and decorate” 😉
We host our annual family Christmas Eve party, and Santa is a big part of our theme this year
Last year, Santa Claus himself dropped by, with a present for each of the 11 kiddos
Even though some of them are known to be naughty
We are hoping for a return visit, so we decorated in his honor
One of the elves is overcome with the joy of the season!
A Santa hat tops the tree
Bulky sacks from the North Pole Post Office, also known as amazon.com, are full of anticipation
The mantel is full of Ho Ho Hos
‘Tis the Season!
Watch out for deer!
This is our Sweet Home Alabama Cotton Tree, covered with cotton bolls and Alabama ornaments, and pink pigs representing the South’s love of BBQ
This tree stays decorated, it just gets covered and tucked away in a closet after the holidays
Fancy faux packages and another cotton yarn tree [Target] are nearby
and a weathered holiday cottage
A very merry secretary
And a jolly bar
With a Gingerbread House vignette
And a tray of cheer
I can’t seem to get my fill of lights this year, I want to light everything!
The Sweet Shoppe in the kitchen got a ball of lights to keep it bright
and features a painted apron of course!

Unite the black and white Santa theme throughout the house
and my ho ho ho desk
decorated with favorite ornaments
I believe in the magic of the season…
Trees and lights
Letters to Santa
And ornaments galore!
Have you seen the mini lights that now come with a timer? Auto on and off, so you can put them anywhere!
Super Boy and Big E are here often, so they have a life size Advent calendar with bags full of Christmas fun, treats, and even a chore or two… and a reminder to be good!
The dining room is more formal, filled with gold and silver…a break from Santa and his elves
Angels sing amid a forest of candles and a bright shiny star
Outside there’s no snow, but there is a Ho Ho Ho snowman
And more reminders to believe
Do you ever paint your pumpkins?
It’s easy to turn them into a Holiday Pumpkin Patch
I wish you the merriest of holidays!
Here are the links to all the holiday homes on tour this week!
