~~~Decorating My Best Friends House~~~

 Good Saturday morning my friends! It has finally stopped raining around here but it is COOOLD! The sun is shining but it is 36 and dropping:( I am NOT a cold/winter person at all but I know that some of you have temps in the single digits so I won't complain:) I went and decorated my best friends house the other day so thought I would share it with you. She has a beautiful home. As you can see, she has tall celings in her living room so I gave the illusion of a higher tree with some red and gold sticks. We also used red poinsettias, white and cream berries, red and gold ornaments and some beautiful leaf stems for filler.

 Here are the leaf stems and some sugared grapes.

 We also do her stair railing and there is a LOT of railing! Large bows, sugared fruits and poinsettias here too.

 it goes up....
 and across the loft.
 She found these gorgeous beaded pillows at Pier One. I just love them.
 We aslo did her mantle, of course! The deer are waiting for some poinsettias to join them. We actually went out after we were done and got them.
 She found this gold tree at Home Goods a few years ago.
 We wrap her candlesticks with gold berry garland and they are topped with sparkly gold pillars.
 She also found this gold and silver ball garland at Home Goods.
 This pretty Santa sits on a small table and you get a glimpse into the sun room.
 I should have gotten a close up of the tree skirt, it is really pretty!
 I put this arrnagement together from things we had left over:)

 There is a ledge that goes down the hall from the front door and around to the kitchen, so that is decorated with their village. We also found a GORGEOUS sleigh with Santa for the other ledge while at HG. It is beautiful but I didn't get a picture of it.
 I love this piece in the sun room.
 His and her chairs in the sun room, facing a TV in the corner.
 She found these pillows that are PERFECT!!!
 I just took these shots to show her mirrored backsplash. I love, LOVE it.  That is why I wanted the mirroed backsplash down stairs in our bar. It really opens up the space.
 Can you see me:):)?
Hope you have enjoyed this little peak into this lovely house. Stay warm, my friends.

  1. It looks absolutely gorgeous, Pinky!

    I used to do our stairs but haven't in a couple of years, other than the newel post. The village makes me want to go get mine out of storage!

    The santa plates on my dining room table are from Home Goods. Just bought them about a month ago. Similar to Fitz and Floyd but much less expensive.:-)

  2. Wow Pinky, your friend's house looks gorgeous, you are so talented and a great friend! I have no stairs now and come C'mas I miss them from my old huge house...but I don't want a big house either, I love my big enough pent house! Enjoy your holiday season dear Pinky.

  3. Pinky, I wish you lived closer, or in my dreams, I lived in your community! Fabulous job! xo

  8. Pinky, you are not only creative, you are truly a great friend too. You have made a Christmas showcase at your friends lovely home. The tree is just lovely. And all of the other special holiday touches around the house are just as pretty and charming (love the stairways and bannisters). I have grown to think that charming is as good as it gets when it comes to the holidays. Great job.
