Deck the Halls 2012

There’s nothing like greenery, glitter, bows and twinkling lights when it comes to making this gal happy!  I am beyond thrilled to have the halls decked and to have positively nothing on the to-do list for the rest of this glorious long weekend!!  So, without further ado, y’all come on in!

Whew!  Anyone left out there??  It really went up pretty easily since I’ve figured out what goes where over the last few years we’ve been in this house.  I think I’ll try to pull together a piece specifically on the porch since that’s the only new stuff around these parts this year.  In the mean time, happy holidays from our home to yours…

Flattered for the feature at Buncolator!

Do you have elves? You must have elves... or staff... or at least a bunch of very helpful gnomes!
Your home is gorgeous and even more beautiful decked out for Christmas!!!! Every inch is dripping with Christmas spirit!!!
If you have elves, can you send them my way? Thanks!

Arlene Grimm said...

Just beautiful!!

Leapfrog and Ladybugs said...

It is all beautiful, but I especially love the oyster ornaments on the porch tree! :)

Your house looks like a movie set. It, and the Christmas decorations, couldn't be more perfect.

Wendy said...

Wow, I'm speechless. Just stunning!

Judy said...

wow amanda..what can i say?! this is simply gorgeous..truly magazine worthy! i have ab-so-lutely no idea what i'm going to do this year. i have lots of reds and greens but i've been wanting to get away from that and do more neutral tones but i see how you've incorporated red/green into your home so beautifully.

your porch is my all-time favorite...i think i'd spend most of my time out there (whether permitting of course)!

thanks for sharing your home with us...maybe i'll get off my hiney and get mine done soon.

Calypso In The Country said...

Gorgeous as always! You must feel great having it all done. Normally, today is the day I start decorating but after cleaning up from Thanksgiving, the only thing I had time to do was take down the fall stuff. I'm so behind!

Gee Singh Newbanks said...

Just luvly!!!
Been working on mine today... totally exhausted. But almost done. Did all except the Master suite. Whew!!!
Sharing in a day or so...
Cheers, Gee

Courtney Ferry Noland said...

I seriously want to just trade houses with you! I hope my house is as gorgeous as yours one day! Too lovely, great job!

Gebelik said...

I’m really glad I have found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and web and this is really frustrating. A good blog with exciting content, that is what I need. Thank you for keeping this site, I will be visiting it.

Everything is so beautiful! You are always such an inspiration.

Any advice on how you hang your outside wreaths? We used to hang ours with ribbon and then use fishing line to anchor them but it seemed like they would always blow around ... and they were a little annoying windy nights! We just stopped doing it!

Sue said...

It's all beautiful Amanda. And I am a teensy bit jealous that you are finished when I have 5 trees with nary an ornament on them yet! Maybe this year the natural look?
Anyway, congrats on a job well done. Now sit back and enjoy!

Dixie Delights said...

Hi Betsy, We use action hooks (a brand of suction cups sister introduced me to). We have one fall down here or there but for the most part they stay put for the season. I guess since they are suction cupped on there isn't much room for them to blow around because I don't notice it at night and I'm a horribly light sleeper :-) xo

Lynn said...

I had to pin this! I love your home; beautifully done! So festive, yet not overly done! I can't wait to have a home like this some day...but with three little ones; we can only have not breakable items!! Happy Holidays!

Simply Domestic said...

Everything looks beautiful! I love all your monograms! I can't believe I've never been to your blog before. I can't wait to look around. :)

Marisa Howard Design said...

You did a beautiful job decorating your home for Christmas! I am designing a home for a Holiday Home Tour on Thursday, when you get a chance have a peek on my blog!

Stunning...the whole place!

Donna White said...

Are those saucers around your foyer mirror? They are gorgeous! I thought they were oyster plates all this time. I need a tablet. This phone is too small to see pretty details! :-)

Dixie Delights said...

Hi Donna - yes they are saucers! We had an issue with our wedding china (butler's pantry by lenox) so they sent us an entire new set about a year later. Most of the plates on my walls are from the original set (they had issues with crazing)! xo

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

WOW! You could knock me over with a feather right now. I think I need to look at your photos 5 or 10 more times to take it all in. Absolutely beautiful!! I can't believe you're all done already. You did a fabulous job!! Thanks for all the eye candy.

Becca said...

What a stunning Christmas home tour! It belongs on a Christmas tour! I love it all ... the lush garlands ... the accent wreaths ... the mix of a bit of coastal. Wow, thanks for sharing!
