Our Christmas Decor this Year!

I wanted to share how I decorated this holiday season.  I skipped the traditional red, white and green and went with brown and blues as well as cream and white with naturals like crumb cake.  I had everything on hand expect for the blue and brown ornaments for the tree and vases.   I also had to get some cream stockings at Walmart.  Total cost to update our Christmas decor = $45.00.
The letters and snowflakes were die cut in baha breeze and chocolate chip cardstock.  Added like a tag onto the stockings.  The card holder was on my studio door.
Everything I had was around the house and I simply moved them for my decor.  See the large pinecone, that was in our den. The vase had candles in them.  Love that flocked wreath!
I love this.  I put a little scene on my kitchen bar.  I added ornament snowflakes on silver thread and hung them from push pins into my ceiling near our lights. The feather tree was placed in a decor pot I had.  Added some white and silver ornaments in a blue glass bowl I had. 
Usually our Christmas tree is red and white but always snowmen and snowflakes.  I used the ornaments that had no red on them and my large white snowflakes. Notice the tree skirt - that is what started this whole color change. I got four panels of those blue curtains in a garage sale thinking I could do some thing with them.  One went on my main table as a runner, one went on my coffee table as a runner and this one became a tree skirt.  
I have more to show you later.  I did manage to do a few crafty decor projects too.  But right now, I have to run off to celebrate Christmas Eve with the Schusters.  Right after we get our broke down van towed from the mall. Long story...
Have a magical Christmas Eve with your family and friends! Peace and Joy!

It all looks beautiful. Isn't it fun to change things up a bit?
