Holiday decor planning



Last December at the Polohouse

Before we know it
turkey day 
will be here and gone 
and the red and green boxes 
will appear from our attic 
and/or basement storage areas.

It will be time to
make the annual preparations
 to celebrate the Christmas season.

If you're like me you try to 
"reinvent the wheel"
every year 
finding new ways
to mix it up and incorporate
a new look here and there.

Are you like me?
;)

Equestrian Christmas decor


 Christmas at the Polohouse

Since the front door
is the first thing 
 our family and friends see 
when they arrive --
is always an important part
of the yuletide decor.

Here are some images to inspire:

Here's a shot of the greens on our front door 
during the holidays.

 

There is also is another 
focal point here to consider ... 
the fireplace mantel.
Here are some visual inspirations 
that I have been
studying with special care:

Pretty, isn't it?


Gifting is such a big part
of the holidays and 
presentation is a fun way to
show the recipients that you care.
 I love to wrap packages!
 Take a peek
at these gorgeous bundles.
Do you pick wrapping papers that
coordinate with your tree's 
color scheme?

Little holiday package at the Polohouse.


Adding little vignettes to prominent
spots in the yard is also a fun way
to show your holiday cheer.
Check out these beauties:

here are some sweet shots
of little lovelies
that I collected through the year
to share with all of you.
