I’ve received a few comments asking if I’d be posting some photos of my friend, Marie’s home decorated for Christmas. Marie and I got together recently for some last-minute Christmas shopping and I snapped some of her beautiful home decorated for the holidays.
In this photo from a previous year, you can see how beautiful it looks lit up at night. Today we’re going inside the turret seen on the right in the photo below.
Marie adds to her decorations each year. Santa is back to greet us as we pass down the walkway toward the porch. Update: Several folks have asked about where Marie gets her large decorations. Santa and the sleigh are from HomeGoods many years ago.
The other side is filled with beautiful ornaments and they all light up come evening time. The ornaments are from Frontgate, several years ago.
The steps are lined with presents! Imagine being a child (or just a child at heart) and seeing all this! ♥
Toy soldiers stand guard to greet us as we step onto the porch. Toy Soldiers are from a antique shop that unfortunately is no longer in business.
I haven’t had a chance to go through all the photos I took, but today we’re touring one of my favorite rooms in Marie’s home, the bedroom she has decorated for her granddaughters.
Hanging on the door to the room is this adorable wreath. It’s covered with sweet confections, girly things like purses and lots and lots of pink. It gives us a hint to what awaits within.
This fantasy bedroom is truly a little girl’s dream.
Maybe a big girl’s dream, too! 🙂
I need to ask Marie again where she found these gorgeous sconces that are on all the walls of this lovely space. They are so beautiful!
The foot of each bed is decorated for Christmas.
There’s a fourth bed over against another wall…hard to capture them all in one photo.
Marie has placed a beautiful doll on each bed. I could not quit staring at these dolls! Each one was different and they were all beautiful. I think Marie said she found them in Hobby Lobby, not sure if that was this year or not, though.
The corner of each bed’s headboard was decorated with a touch of whimsy, too.
The turret holds the most beautifully decorated tree!
You really feel like you’ve been transported to a wonderful fantasy land as you take it all in.
Photos do not do it justice, but everything becomes even more magical (if that’s even possible!) come nightfall. Everyone in the community looks forward to seeing Marie’s decorations for each season and Christmas is truly special! Marie hosts several charity events throughout the year, so the decorations she so lovingly creates are appreciated by many.
I’ll be sharing more photos of Marie’s home this week, so stay tuned for those coming soon!
