Peacock Christmas Holiday Decorating

Usually I start my Christmas decorating the day after Thanksgiving but ... this year I couldn't quite get to it as I was busy with my shop, etc., so I'm still decorating. I'm almost done though, yeah!

Thought I'd share some photos. For the past 2 years I've wanted to coordinate my decorations with my home decor, focussing on teal, sapphire and avocado green with a bit of plum. So my house this year is decorated in peacock colors and it is so lovely!

Also, I decided against the big artificial tree which usually takes me a week to decorate by the time I pull it up out of the basement, along with the myriad boxes of lights, ornaments, extension cords, etc.

This year I've decorated this cool topiary that I acquired from a store closing a few years back (I was using the stand for craft shows!). It takes up less floor space and I was able to decorate it in a few days since it takes fewer ornaments and lights!

I've also incorporated my collection of blue and green glass bottles which I use as vases in the summer. For the holidays I've turned them into bottle trees! What do you think! Enjoy the photos!

Now I just need some peacock feathers!

Remember to enter my first blog giveaway! Only a few days left.
Go to my Thursday Thanksgiving Day post and follow the instructions given there.

Have a great day wherever you are!
