Happy Holidays, all! Grab a cup of cocoa and join me for this year’s holiday home tour of Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza HQ.
We always start our decorating with the tree.
Garland and fun ornaments adorn our tree, and my daughter was in charge this year (well, she put herself in charge).
We have pictures of the kids from each year, plus homemade ornaments, dog ornaments, and, of course, ornaments for our favorite teams.
Did I mention that I rearranged the entire living room just so the dogs wouldn’t knock over the tree when they ran to the front window? True story.
After we tackle the tree, we decorate the rest of the living room.
I used some of the free trimmings I got to make the white vases festive.
The table is now by the fireplace so that the dogs have room to bark at the window. Seriously. The things I do for those sweet babies.
I decided this year to put our stockings on the banister, rather than the mantel. That way, when we have a fire in the fireplace, we (well, I) don’t have to move the stockings.
I made the bows out of burlap garland and gold wired ribbon – a little rustic, a little bling.
Under our rake that holds this year’s cards are our snowmen, strangely near the fireplace.
Can’t forget the Christmas apples.
And angels are on the ladder.
In the dining room, I added a little more bling to our chandelier.
These ornaments came from the Ikea as-is room – the whole bag was $5. I only used about half the bag here.
