Hello and happy Friday! It is time to officially name the grand prize winner of our Holiday Love contest, and what a contest it was!

Congratulations goes to Susan for submitting this incredibly beautful picture, the very essence of the holidays-

(Please email us at [email protected] to provide your shipping info so your prize can be on it’s way)

This picture submitted by Megan S. was the runner up, another beautiful and precious vision of the holidays

Thanks again to all who entered and to those who participated in the voting.  Before you know it, it will be time for our Spring Love contest (can’t wait because that will mean winter is just about over)!

Today, I am sharing with you some of my Christmas decor, the rest I will share in a post next week as my final recap post for the Christmas holiday. So hard to believe it’s less than a week away! This holiday really snuck up on me, I have been working around the clock,  so had very little free time. Before I knew it, the holidays were in full swing and I felt extremely late to the starting gate.

But I am happy to say that between having a photo session in my home this past Tues and a family Christmas party on Sat (yes, my husband convinced me to do it, we just decided this literally last week), it got me moving and moving fast! I saved the best for last, read on…..

Nothing like fresh and beautiful white amaryllis to decorate a mantel

I LOVE citrus and am in love with the way this mantel came out in my dining room, the mix of fresh greens, citrus, magnolia and large sugar cones with a touch of blue and white is a winning combination if you ask me.

So love our nutcracker toppers!!

My kitchen island was filled with fresh greens and magnolia, this is one of the easiest (and prettiest) arrangements to make in a ginger jar!

Hallway all decked for the holidays

A chest in dining room gets holiday touches

Dining room mantel

Even worked out decorating the outside porch! It was sooo cold, so didn’t too. much time but these pictures were taken in progress


My “holding pen”, where all the flowers went to stay fresh until our Christmas party (garage where it’s cooler, really extends their life)

Don’t forget to dress up unexpected spots, like adding champagne to a wine bucket and putting beautiful greens in with it, love this with the magnolia and seeded ecucaplyptys

And added them under my stag tureen as well in the pantry

And now its time for party prep for our family Christmas party tomorrow night….very behind and have lots to do!

And I am saving the best for last……this might be my most favorite holiday ;picture ever. My front door!!!!!!!! Ready?

These large jars I had done outside to avoid the mess, but were going indoors however they looked so pretty outside, kept them out there a while!

I seriously would leave this up year round if it stayed green and fresh, I love it that much:) The mix of fresh greens and magnolia just does it for me. Get used to it, because I have a feeling I will duplicate this exact look next year. Hope you enjoyed the post, I will share more next week on a final Christmas recap. In the meantime, there is so much going on and still so much to do, this is it until Sunday. Busy, busy days ahead as we enter  “crunch time” !

Hope you are caught up on your end and pacing yourself, the stress is the worst thing of all so I am doing by best to keep telling myself i am doing the best I can and what will be, will be. I am also staying focused on the real meaning of the season, family, mindfulness and togetherness. Stay calm and jingle on…..

I love your post and will “save” for next year. Such wonderful design inspiration for interiors and……. your fabulous front door! Thanks for all you do to keep us all hoping that, yes, today my home will also be an “enchanted home”….. have a Merry Merry!

Oh, my goodness, I have never seen a more beautiful front door. It is truly spectacular. You must make Holiday Note cards using this photo. This would be a wonderful item for you to sell on your website next holiday season. I would love to purchase such a box as Christmas cards. What a gifted and talented lady you are with endless ideas that you so graciously share! Happy holidays, Tina.

Everything looks beautiful and ready for a wonderful joyful holiday celebration! As far as your front entrance goes……..You’ve outdone yourself! It is stunning!!!!

Simply perfect! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Just stunning – all of it…I agree – wish it could be left up…

You truly have a gift, thanks for sharing it!

Wow— can’t believe the photo from Megan S. did not win. The child pictured, has the true wonder of belief and disbelief, which every “new” child expresses at Christmas Time. Oh well—A Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!

All lovely ! When I was in the Atlantic south , I saw magnolia trees and those rich leaves. I saw each branch in a silver container or blue and white jar. Ha
Now between us girls, how many elves do you have working with you? Shh just tell me so I won’t feel totally worthless

Truly enchanting and elegant! I would keep all year too!! Enjoy your party – you deserve it! You had a rough couple of weeks with that cold?

Thank you, Tina, for all these lovelies! I’m so sorry I missed you on Good Morning America, but I don’t watch early morning television. That’s my “holy hour” of Morning Prayer and Bible study — with a pot of tea and my Charlie (cocker spaniel) for company. Blessings to you and all your family. I pray you all keep warm and well this beautiful season!

Tina, both of the finalists are just beautiful!

And your Christmas decorations are magnificent, I love every single touch!

Love the idea of adding fresh greens to the champagne bucket and your front door took my breath away.

Hoping you get a chance to relax a little bigger but I know how hectic this season is, wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

I am so sorry to have missed the segment on the Today show. I tried to search for it, but couldn’t seem to find it. Can you please send us the link? Love, love love all the beautiful pics of your greenery. Merry Christmas!

Hi Tina,
The winning photo is absolutely gorgeous! Quintessential Christmas ! Your home and decor is always surpassing the last holiday or event, always my favorite blog! Thank you and a very Merry Christmas!

I am so impressed with how beautiful everything is, you really need to write a book on how to create elegance in the home. This is something you really see in today’s world!

I am equally impressed by the fact that you’re running a business and managed to do this, absolutely spectacular!

Hope you get to put your feet up soon with a glass of champagne and make a toast to you and your accomplishments.

Absolutely Stunning! Over on this side of the world we have been going through bushfires, the colours of the sky have been unbelievable, lots of smoke and ash, it feels like I’ve taken up smoking, it’s been an experience. But it hasn’t stopped the Christmas spirit. On that note, Wishing you and your Family, a very beautiful Christmas and a Wonderful New Year. Till next year, Esther from Sydney

❤️❤️❤️love your front door, it is everything exquisite❤️❤️❤️
