decorating for the holidays

I went over my parents to visit on Friday and my Mom had most of her holiday decorating done. I always love seeing how she decorates the house. Seeing things from my childhood and seeing new items she has put together.

I absolutely loved how she decorated her hutch this year. Leaving the blue mixed in with the red and green looks really great I think!

Simple touch to the mirror in the dinning room, adding a little greenery to it adds a lot of character.

A sign of Christmas in the household is my Mom's glittery Santa collection. Over the years the Santa family has grown and grown. I used to be on the look out for glittery Santa's when I was Christmas shopping for her. Now she says that she has too many :) I have actually started a collection of them myself, I think I only have 4 though. lol.

And my parents little but beautiful Christmas tree. I have given her grief over the past 2 or 3 years of putting a small tree up since my brother and I aren't living there anymore. But I have to say that it always turns out adorable!

Stay tuned for photos of my decorating coming up in the next couple of days! :)
Hope you enjoyed another tour of my parents beautiful house!
