Christmas arrived at the Savage’s

Christmas has officially arrived at Casa de Savage!! While we were putting up all the decor there was some emotions attached…… in one way it was fun to decorate our new home for the first time but it was also bittersweet putting out decor and thinking about where it went in our Oklahoma house. 

I am pretty lucky that I have a husband who likes putting up Christmas light!!! He did a great job! And we won’t turn them on until Thanksgiving night! This was a “preview” HA!

This is the beautiful plant that lived in our urns on either side of our front door all summer, I couldn’t believe I was able to keep something alive for over 4 months!

 And once the first freeze hit we removed the flowers for winter………. (we got cages and urns at Crate and Barrel)

 We then wrapped each cage so they would look like mini Christmas trees framing our front door! This past summer when I was telling Matt why I wanted the urns and cages he couldn’t quit put it all together but now my vision has come full circle! hahaha!

Here is the finished result!!! They turned out awesome………And the trees are also wrapped with twinkle lights!!

 Picking green (Martha Stewart Caper Berry paint) for our formal dining room was such an amazing choice! It is perfect for all seasons but extra special for Christmas!

 I hung ornaments from the chandelier with tulle and filled the vases with fake snow and ornaments! Thanks to Pinterest for some of these ideas!

 I went for classic and simple in our kitchen dining room! It is so neat having an open floor plan and being able to see all the decor at once!

 My girl Bella LOVES Christmas! No joke, the minute we got stuff out she came out to see what she could get into!! The tree I have had since I was 21 and when she was a itty bitty baby she would climb the limbs and lay in the tree! Now she settles for a nice spot under it! I love her!

 In the kitchen window I filled a vase with cinnamon sticks and at Hobby Lobby found some fun Christmas accents with leopard! Fun huh? Leopard goes with everything I think!

This year I added some fun “swirly things” to stick out of the tree! Yes, I think swirly things is the technical name! And I love classic colors red, green and gold!

 Here it is again…..It is hard to take great pictures of a tree and capture how it really looks! But now that everything is up I am glad we went ahead and decorated! I am excited that my Mom will be coming for a week and will get to enjoy everything!

Have you all decorated for Christmas yet??
