Trio of Peacock Themed Decorations

I finished decorating the living room Christmas tree weeks ago. But, it wasn’t until today that I found time to share my collection of peacock ornaments.

This is my third (and final!) post about Christmas decorating with a peacock theme, including; Peacock Ornaments Decorate Chandelier at Christmas and Decorating for Christmas with a Peacock Theme.

The peacock ornaments hanging from the dining room chandelier tend to be balls, and some are quite large. They also tend to be in sets of two, four or six matching designs for balance around the light fixture.

Those peacock ornaments on the artificial living room tree tend to be more unique and detailed. Other peacock and bird embellishments adorn the tree, including; ribbon, garland, floral picks, clip-on birds, and feather sprays. Come see! (more…)

Peacock Motif Enhances Christmas Décor

Today, I want to show how Christmas decorating with a peacock theme is applied to my formal dining room, front hall and living room.

Last week, I shared Peacock Ornaments Decorate Chandelier at Christmas. In this post, you’ll see how the peacock theme extends to the dining room centerpiece and tablescape, a grandfather clock and mirror, and living room Christmas tree.

Year-round peacock decor accents in my living room, front hall and dining room came first. Just here and there — in pillows, floral arrangements and artwork. Although in the dining room, walls are covered in classic peacock wallpaper.

Over the years, I found peacock theme ribbon, ornaments, feathers, floral accents, and more during the Christmas holiday season. I had no idea peacock Christmas decorations were even a thing! (more…)

A Different Kind of Christmas Tree

I’m excited to show you how peacock ornaments decorate the dining room chandelier! This is my third post about

Peacock ornament chandelier day
decorating chandeliers, and you may be wondering why, at this time of year, I am not featuring a Christmas tree?

I actually decorate 4-5 trees in my home every year, one live and the others artificial. The live tree in the family room has the most dear and treasured ornaments. Many were made by my boys out of photographs, tin foil, margarine lids, macaroni, and the like. But, they are like silver and gold to me!

A slim artificial tree in the living room holds fragile glass ornaments. Each of the boy’s rooms has a themed tree suited for their interests — just 3-4 feet tall. Some years, I also decorate a pencil tree in the finished game room with a ski lodge theme to match the decor.

Most of the trees, lights and decorations are stored in the attic. An attic not easily accessible and not designed to be weight-bearing. Several years ago, hubby said, “no more Christmas trees!”

But my collection of fragile peacock and other ornaments continued to grow… (more…)

Scottie Dog Christmas Ornament Tree

Scottie Dog Christmas Ornament Tree

Taking a few minutes to share the Scottie dog Christmas ornament tree that’s set up in a corner of one of the guest bedrooms.

It was the last of my holiday decorating; completed just in time for our sons arrival home this past weekend.

Do you have pet themed ornaments decorating your Christmas tree?

After losing our first Sweet Scottie Dog Fibber McGee, two Decembers ago, my dog theme holiday decorations have been mostly packed away.

Last season, I was in a boot and using a scooter because of foot surgery. So that really limited the amount of Christmas decorating I could do. However, thanks to Mr. Buzz, our home was festively decorated with the more “essential” indoor and outdoor elements. Although the live tree was decorated in the family room, the other three artificial theme trees stayed in storage.

Now, with a new puppy celebrating his first birthday and enlivening our home this season, it was a real joy decorating the small tree again with Scottie dog Christmas ornaments.

Think of it as this year’s holiday card from me to you!

Add Christmas Cookie Cutter Cheer to Kitchen

Add Christmas Cookie Cutter Cheer to Kitchen

Dashing to send off a post today as I continue to deck the halls, craft, bake and prepare to celebrate the holidays. Happily, the shopping, wrapping and cards are finished. How about you?

When I first began collecting large Christmas cookie cutters, the plan was to decorate whimsical cookies — wrapped in cellophane bags — as table favors. Instead, for several consecutive years, I gave duplicates as Christmas gifts to family and friends. I imagined they (or one day I) would bake giant cutouts for a cookie decorating activity with kids or grandkids.

Fast forward, and I’ve finally gotten to a decorating idea that’s been in my noggin for several years — hanging the oversized holiday cookie cutters on my upper kitchen cabinets.

Not that it was a difficult project to do. But, it did mean finding extra time to get organized and put them together. Last year, I was wearing a giant boot and getting around on crutches, so there was no climbing on a stepstool to hang them!

Let me show you my Christmas cookie cutter collection, and how festive they look decorating the kitchen.
