My X-mas Decor

Yesterday, I put up our tree and other Christmas decor. The tree is a blue and silver (winter) tree and I like it! It took awhile to put it up but it was worth it in the end. I also did some decorating on the fireplace by putting some garland and lights on the mantle and hanging a few stockings. I am really proud of my vase that I put together and it's on the mantle as well. I saw on HGTV a vase filled with ornaments and created a similar look. I took some left over silver and blue ornaments and added some pine cones. It turned out nice. I did a few other things too. I put a table X-mas tree in the kitchen and put up some holiday plates. The dining room I kept simple by changing out the centerpiece and using a holiday runner. I am very pleased with how everything turned out. Today I'm planning on decorating some wreaths for outside and getting them up.
Oh, BTW, we got our new set of gas logs for the fireplace yesterday. I love it! It's so relaxing. When it starts to get really cold, I don't think I'll leave the living room. It's my new favorite place! :)
