Christmas Stoop Decorated

It's that time of year again, time to decorate the front door and steps of our house.  (Also known as a stoop around here)  Of all the holiday decorating I do, this might be my favorite because it shines like a beacon as I'm making those last few minutes of my evening commute to my front door.

There are a couple of new additions this year. First these LED Birch trees from Balsam Hill.  These photos don't do them justice - they are super bright and beautiful.  Once they are lit, I almost didn't need anything else and it looked so festive.  The best part is that I will feel absolutely no shame leaving these up well past Christmas - they are the perfect foil to winter's early evening darkness.

The next much smaller but still exciting for me addition are the old ice skates I scored for $5 at a neighbor's junk sale earlier.  I'm still searching high and low for discarded red wagons and flexible flyer sleds without much much but at least I got this one little element scratched off the list.  They will be definitely be making a comeback.



And in case you thought I was the only one excited about the Christmas bling....

proof positive this is my kid!

  6. I went for birch trees (from Restoration Hardware) this year, too! I also put one in my guest bedroom, complete with a little feathered snowy owl and a cardinal :)

  10. Gorgeous! I have been on the hunt for ice skates, this year - and I've already scored the old sled and red wagon and in-law hand-me-downs. Although seriously, they are everywhere in the midwest.

    Also, did you make the garland? I'm just so smitten with fresh garland this year and want to try to make some.

    1. No, I didn't make it. Just purchased it at Lowes. No pine trees around here for me to steal from :)

  11. I agree with Kim. The fresh garland is EVERYTHING! But your daughter's expression is better :)
