Ben and I both agreed that there was only one type of light we wanted for the outside, the "traditional bulb" in our mind. We know that in the future we'd like to add some lawn decorations and maybe a light up sign, but for this year our big purchase was the house lights...
The mirrored wall looks great with the reflection of the tree lights!
This table centerpiece was so easy to make, read about it here.
I tied gold bows on all of the candles to help make them festive.
Even Lucy is decorated in her holiday dress!
I love how my little village looks on the piano. Most of this village was hand made in South Dakota by a woman named Beth. My Grannie brought them home one year when she was there visiting her family. We have added people and other pieces to it over the years.
We layered the village using some scrap wood in order to make it feel hilly.
My aunt gave us the adorable couple sitting by the fire, to make it glow Ben tucked a light bulb in right behind it and swapped it out with an orange bulb.
He even tucked lights behind the trees to illuminate them!
This is how I chose to display our holiday cards this year, read about how easy it was to make it here!
On the linnen cabinet I have displayed my light up snowman and my favorite kissing angels!
They are another special item that was my Grannie's, I think they are so sweet!!!
