This Year's Christmas Decor

This year we got a really late start on our Christmas decorating. Not intentionally, since I was really excited we had "an extra week of Christmas" with Thanksgiving being so early this year. It was just an unfortunate combination of not being at home and a certain husband getting the stomach bug that delayed us just a little bitty bit. ;) But alas, the halls have been decked at the Fentons, so come on in and check out how we decorated this year!

One of the first things you'll see when you walk in our kitchen is this vignette in the window nook.

On the opposite side of the kitchen, we have our Christmas card wreath hanging up on the wall.

From the kitchen, you'll walk into the dining room and see this centerpiece on our table. I decided to switch it up this year and use our cake stand to display some red ornaments. It could use a little bit of greenery, but overall I like how it turned out!

From the dining room, you can see our stockings hanging on the wall in the living room since we do not have a mantle. I can't wait until we have a fireplace someday! 

On our TV console, we have gold honeycomb votives to add a little Christmas cheer to an otherwise mundane part of our living room (please excuse the dust, DSLRs can be unforgiving in the detail they pick up).

You'll remember from this post that we have Frosty as our coffee table centerpiece.

And behind Frosty, you can see the main attraction--our tree! I love how Kyle and I are both on Team Fraser Fir. It makes our house smell heavenly!

Some new ornaments we have on our tree this year were souvenirs from various trips we took throughout the year. This red glittery one is from the Biltmore Estate when we visited back in July. It doesn't say Biltmore on it anywhere since all the ones that did were really expensive, so I got this one to commemorate the occasion instead. I think it's prettier anyway!

Another new ornament we have is from our sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands. We found this cute one at a little shop in Soper's Hole on the West End of Tortola. I can't wait to continue our tradition of buying an ornament everywhere we travel. We'll see where 2013 takes us!

Kyle's Mom gave us this glittery tree ornament just a couple of days ago. It's the perfect addition to our tree! 

And continuing the tradition of getting an ornament whenever we take a trip, Kyle surprised me with this cute ornament a few days ago when he got back from his Colorado skiing trip. I absolutely love it!

Moving along to our gift wrap, we used kraft paper with various ribbons and toppers this year. I like how cohesive it makes everything look.

And of course, we still have our glow present brightening things up under the tree.

 So to wrap it up (tee hee), I'll leave you with these adorable pictures of Doc curled up under the tree. Does it get any cuter than that? 

Merry Christmas, y'all!
