Walking up to my friend Pam’s front door, I could almost smell and taste Christmas. I know that inside it will be cheerful and that she will have added her special creative touches to every room.
First thing I notice is her mantel (remember I have mantel envy) which is a repeat of the garland treatment at the front door. In an understated way, it gives the room a perfect holiday feel.
Next, my eye is drawn to a table top where there is a wonderful painted gourd surrounded by a bowl of clementines and a vase of dried hydrangeas. Again, so simple, effectively demonstrating that less is more.
As we move to the kitchen where Pam is preparing for company, a little Christmas tree surrounded by packages stops me. Somehow its smallness seems so right.
There’s never a time when Pam’s table is lacking, and her guests tonight are in for a treat. She has cleverly arranged an assortment of elements to create a centerpiece that is a winter potpourri.
Each setting combines seasonal green, red and white,
colors that are repeated differently in the table runner.
What I like about being in this home is that from the front door to the kitchen, everything ties together in a style that is most warm and cozy. Even the color on the walls seems to say Merry Christmas!
Don’t you admire people who, without a lot of fuss, can make everything seem just right? What a wonderful skill that is and this gal has it in spades!
