I love to re-purpose, re-use and recycle my holiday decorations. My Christmas doorway this year was a Red and white color story, complete with Santa faces and candy canes. After Christmas I removed the Santa faces and Candy canes (they were wired on) and stored them away with Christmas. I left everything on on my green pine garland that is attached to permanent screws around my doorway. Red and white ribbon, a white sparkle garland and all the assortment of red, white and red and white patterned balls.

Valentines is a favorite holiday celebration for me. Probably because I Love, love, love RED, and my birthday is February 12th. I love to throw a party for myself and decorate for valentines day! My next favorite color (or color combo ) is Black and white! I have collected serving platters in black and white to use for many celebrations! So it was only natural for me to add Black and white in with valentines day!

I collected my new wooden conversation hearts from Adams and Company and my stash of Black and white polka dot ribbon ( Love polka dots too!) and transformed my Christmas garland into my Valentine Doorway! Love is in the air!

Tip: Ribbon is a quick  fix to a tired, out of season or plain pillow. It can easily dress up or add a holiday touch!

A great base for the mantel decoration is a garland to work in and out of the Halloween decorations.

Start with a Twister grass garland and glitter ball garland.

Using two garlands twisted together is a great backdrop to the Halloween blocks, pumpkins and candle holder. I like to use a group of three.

Next add the finishing touch, ribbon.

3 ribbon patterns combined in a half bow are a great finishing touch to the mantel garland.

Museum of the Southwest

Christmas Decorations, Christmas Decorating, Show Me Decorating

Red and Green says Merry Christmas

Opportunities to be a part of the community and benefit organizations and charities are always taken around the holidays. Museum of the Southwest hosts Christmas at the Mansion every year and local stores and designers help to decorate the areas at the museum.

Large decorated garlands festively decorated in red and green hang over the doorway. Topiaries dressed up with lit packages, stand guard beside the door and welcome guests.

Dressed up topiaries

Inside furniture from a local interior designer front is show cased in the parlor and sets the stage for a beautiful flocked tree. A palette of olive green, lime green, and reds, black and cream paper mache balls, burlap ribbon tied with cheetah print velvet and tufted metallic olive green ornaments assist in the decoration of the tree. The choices of the decorations add interest and texture to the unexpected mixture. A beautiful wow for all to see.

TIP: Mesh fabric used as ribbon tied in loops and woven through the tree is colorful and works as great filler. Starting at the top and working in a spiral around the tree downward tuck the mesh in and out.

DECORATING TIP: Lime green is almost as popular as Christmas green and certainly adds a fresh bold color to any tree, wreath, or garland. To add zing all over your project use in multiple numbers distributed throughout.
