Expolsion of Christmas!

My favorite holiday is Christmas.  Usually the week of Thanksgiving, I start dragging out all the decorations.  I've got a lot.  So, it takes a while.  I've had decked my halls since Thanksgiving and thought I would give you a peek by starting with my dining room.  I really wanted to relay the warm glow of the candles.  So, I used my tripod and no flash.  Hopefully, you can get a sense of what I feel when it is all lit up with candle light.

 I tried to keep it simple on the buffet.  My daughter likes to rearrange my decorations to other rooms (mainly hers). 

I love my garland up around the windows.  They are so big.  It just felt like they needed a little vavoom for the season.

Here is the best shot I could get of the entire dining room.  The lighting you see is candle lights and lights from the Christmas tree.  I love the warm glow during these cold winter nights.
