2011 Christmas Decor

On Christmas Eve, after Santa put out the presents, I decided to take some pictures of our Christmas decor.  The house was so peaceful with Jillian sound asleep in bed and Jeff passed out on the couch.   Although I would have liked to have done more with our Christmas decor this year, I am pleased with how it turned out.  My goal next year is to switch the colored lights for white lights and add some tulling as garland and as a tree topper. 

I bought the light up Christmas presents last year at Marshall's and was so excited to break them out for this year.  I think out of all my Christmas decor, these are my favorite!!!

Last year, I found a fun way to use Christmas ornaments in my Apothecary jars.  They add so much Christmas color to our kitchen!

I have decorated our staircase the same way for the past three years and I like the simplicity of the garland and the lights.  I am thinking of possible adding a little more pizazz to it next year but for now, it's perfect!

I hope you enjoyed the tour of our home during Christmas!!!  I am linking up today to Kelly's Korner Blog, The Nester, Blue-Eyed Bride, Thirty Decor Chic, and Christmas Cheer Link Party.
