Our place all lit up for the Christmas Eve festivities
Our Texas inspired photo booth…
from our family to yours…Merry Christmas Y’all!
Over the years we have accumulated quite an assortment of ornaments. Some are keepsakes and find their way onto the Christmas tree year after year. Some have seen better days and have been relegated to the box of misfit ornaments. That is, until I got the idea to give a few a new look for this years family Christmas decorations.
This years Christmas Party theme was Boots and Bling, All things Texas! I decided to decorate the tree on our pavilion with a bit of Texas flair. I picked up 2 yards of red bandana fabric and 1 yard suede with a tooled leather look to recover the old ornaments.
I gathered the fabric up and tied it up with a bit of jute.
There you have it a whole new look..
Over the years our Christmas Tree decorations have reflected who we are as a family. In the beginning our tree was decorated with twinkling multi-colored lights and a spattering of ornaments. For several years our tree was a beautiful hodge podge of ornaments created by our son at school Christmas parties and dollar store treasures. Then there came the day when the colored lights were replaced with white lights and the ornaments were treasured purchases from numerous vacations. Now we are empty nesters with no grandchildren. So now our tree reflects a quieter more serene palette. This year the decorations are a reflection of our love of outdoors and a life blessed beyond measure.
