A Very Guthrie Christmas

Since you’ve seen almost all my decorations already, I thought I’d give you a look at some of the creative Christmas displays around Fort Guthrie.  A few of these are styled by me and some are styled by my Mama.  I went to visit this her weekend and had to take some pictures around the house.  I think she enjoyed it when I said, “Mama, this is so pretty I have to put it on my blog!”

We start in the living room with the coffee table centerpiece.  My mother put this together and I love it! :)

I set up the Christmas village on top of the bookcase this year.  It is so cute!

Santa is arriving via hot air balloon in Dickensville! :)



The dining table is set for dinner with red linens and Spode Christmas Tree china.

Glittery poinsettia napkin rings,  silver flatware, and holly stemware complete the place settings.


Over on the buffet, garland and pinecones reflect in the mirror, and on top I am displaying the NOEL letters that I made over the weekend.  See them on my mantel in a future blog post soon!

Abby’s little Christmas tree in the parlor is decorated with purple, pink, red and blue! 


And lastly, we’ll head outside to Papa’s garage, which we are now calling “Santa’s workshop”. 



Only 5 more days til Christmas!  Guess that means I should get off the blog and get back to the sewing room! :)

I’ll be back soon with more Christmas fun!
