Decorating my Best Friends House! Christmas Tour

This is year 9 that I have been decorating my best friends house! It is a labor of love, I would do anything for her. She and I got married 6 weeks apart, 47 years ago. We raised our kids together and have been through EVERYTHING together!!! Hope you like taking this little tour. Here is the tree! It is all burgundy, gold and cream.
 I had everything except the ornaments in my stash! The flowers, beaded grapes..

 gold edged leaves, creamy berries

 and sticks. She has very tall ceilings in here so I added the sticks for height and drama!

 We also do her staircase, and it is GRAND!

 Upstairs are 2 bedrooms (one of which is the office) a bathroom and a loft.

In the garland we have bows of burgundy and gold, flowers, beaded fruits
 and berries.
 the leaves are also used in here.

 Some of the flowers I sprayed with glitter paint to make them sparkle!
 Their village sits on this ledge that surrounds the living room on 2 sides. The village and mantle aren't lit cause they are on timers that come on at 4PM.
 I love, LOVE this Santa in his sleigh. She found him last year at Home Goods. She will be adding live poinsettias to this ledge.

 This is the mantle. The tree came from Home Goods too and the candle holders are new this year.
 I found the candle rings at the place where I worked just yesterday so brought them.

 These are the candle holders that are on the mantle usually. I just added gold bows.
 These gorgeous pillows came from Pier 1 a few years ago. Beautiful!
So that's what I did yesterday! Hope you enjoyed seeing this little tour. HAPPY holidays my friends!!!! XO, Pinky
