Merry Christmas Eve

A trip to the flower mart produced just enough wreaths, garlands and pointsettias to minimally decorate this little City flat.
I even found the stockings but decided to hang just mine and Mr. A's.

 Dried hydrangeas from our old house and cinnamon scented pine cones from the grocery store fill in the mantel.

I found battery operated birch candles from Grandinroad.
They even came with a remote control!

 A Ralph Lauren tartan throw becomes a tablecloth in the dining room.  Les Méchantes carries a similar one here.
I took the ugly shades off the chandelier and draped it with live garland.

 A bouquet of Christmas flowers will replaee the rosemary topiary tonight for our Christmas Eve crab feed.

 Our ornament free "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree found a home on top of the piano!
As I've already mentioned, decorating for the holidays this year was a bit of a challenge, for many reasons--a major move, a new business and everything in storage to name a few.
To tell the truth, I actually didn't mind not going all out!
I'll do that next year....maybe!

 Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy 2015!
