Christmas Eve

 As we are winding down from the hustle and bustle of all our preparations and the madness that comes along with Christmas, it is just so exhausting when its all said and done! (I still haven't wrapped a single gift) I am trying to relax and enjoy my day at home with my family, my daughter has been tracking Santa all day on the computer, there's football in the background and food baking, I love it! But as promised here are a few pictures of my house decorated for the season. Starting with my front door - I love my Nantucket door knocker in the picture above, it's a great spot to hold some greens.

My Lemon Cypress tree. I keep it all year round, they are the prettiest green color.

Old antique ornaments and greens under glass dome.

My paper whites in full bloom- I love them

Red stocking under a glass dome

One of my favorite old ornaments.

Mercury glass candle holder

Those were just a few pictures that I thought I would share. And here is a last minute idea that I saw that's so pretty and easy to do.  I love the mason jar and how colorful the cranberries and greens look in the water floating around with the candle.
I actually love Christmas Eve more then Christmas day, maybe its the anticipation of the day to come and how excited the kids are and just being home as a family. So I will be wrapping gifts all night and hoping my kids will stay in bed, but enjoying every minute of it. Merry Christmas.
