Deck the Halls

As Christmas Day creeps closer and closer, I have finally given up trying to add more decorations to the house.  Every time I walk in the door with another bag filled with goodies, my husband asks what I am up to now!  This is our first holiday season as a married couple, so I am just getting started on my decor collection.  Last year, after Christmas my sister and I racked up on a ton of decorations at over 65% off retail value.  I plan to do the same this year as well!  Without further adieu, I present to our our Christmas filled home:

I found the Santa and Snowman "sticks" at Kirkland's last year for $5!

One of my favorite vendors at work gave a few of us fresh pine wreaths to adorn our front door!  
They came in all the way from Maine and smell so fresh.

This is the view of our dining room when you first walk in the door.  I wanted to fill this room with silver accents to match our china.

The buffet is adorned with a leaf tree found at Marshall's (left) and a Gorham ice bucket filled with silver ornaments of all sizes (right).  I purchased the wreath on the mirror last week at Michael's for $1.99 and found a thick silver ribbon to tie a bow.


Ice bucket filled with ornaments of all sizes.

I received this cute Gamecock plate last Christmas from my aunt and I have placed it on top of the fridge.

 Our stockings hung with care.  We don't have a fire place, so this was my best alternative!

Full view of lit garland and Santa sleigh I also found last year at Kirkland's for $5.

Once again, our beautiful Christmas tree that I am very proud of!

How do you and your family decorate for Christmas? Are you ready for the holiday?
