AF---FeaturingThe Dinning Room

AKA ----- The Reindeer Room. When I was little the flying reindeer always amazed me. A few years ago I learned that NASA had always reserved the airways on Christmas eve for Santa and his Flying Reindeer. this must mean It is TRUE! Oh yes I am a believer, even in my Older age. Found a book on this subject some time ago. It was then that the dinning Room was Pinning the name The Reindeer Room. To Salute their duties. I love decorating this room.

so, here is the book I wrote about.

Tuesday News....Holiday decorating

Today I will feature the Solarium. I love this room in our home. In the room we have a Pellet Stove, when it is on it is so Cozy. Therefore the room gets a snow village feeling.

Here is my daughters Tree. the ornament are ones that where given to her my a Family friend all home made. There are a couple that where given to her different Christmas'. she has a few about 17. One for each year of her life. when she leaves the home she will have a good start on her Tree.

Now the Village is the main theme. this year we used a real snow covering. it comes in a jar, you add water and the snow grows. It feeling and looks like snow. I really like it because there is very little mess.

This is a close up of the snow.
I used cocoa for the Walkway.

Monday News...Getting ready...

The time is getting closer and the house is lighting up. Every room is lite up with the Joy, spending the Light of the Season. This home is a believer in Jesus Christ, We believe He is the Son of God, sent to the earth to bring us Light and Hope. Jesus Christ is the Messiah promised to us by God Almighty. He is the Great I AM. Lights represent the Light of the world has come and is still very much alive. So, that is why we celebrate Jesus Christ Birth by using Lights.

With that said, we have been enjoying the lights of the season.

Here are a few Blue peeks.

This is what we did this Last weekend...

Getting House Ready

Have been decorating the house for a party next week. I started decorating a few weeks ago. First the Tree went up. Then some outdoor lighting. It took me a while to get to the Kitchen and Solarium. Still working on them. Getting House Ready is fun, I turn on the holiday music and start moving.

Planning a Holiday party for this Friday. So Planning the Appetizers and drinks is on going. there is a show called the Chew, Love the show. They had some good ideas on the food side. I might try out the stuffed Mini potatoes. Looking for a good kid friendly punch now. Of course the Mulled Gluhwine is a must for the adults. Maybe even Spiced apple cider.

I hope the weather will be nice. Want to have the outdoor fires going. I will have to post the Photos of the house throughout the week. Thinking about featuring one room per day. I have six rooms that are holiday decked out. That will work out fine for the upcoming week.

Today I wanted to show the Hallway. It can cost a lot to purchase Holiday photos. I have been adding to mine each year. This year I had gone out to look a came back empty. With the ecomony tight, there was just nothing in my price range. Driving back home I got an idea from remembering a Germany friend. Every year she would use her own house pictures and deck them out. So, with a cost of about 2.50 per picture this is the results.

A Hall lined with Presents.

Now if you viewed the first photo, You noticed one of the photos is not hanging straight.
Well, That is because there is a noise maker attached.
Folks will want to straight it and it will make a glass break noise.
The tag says nice/ naughty.
Now if they straighten it the tag will says...
I just had to do something funny for the party.

The hall entrance view...

So your question......
Are you planning a funny thing for the holiday?
