Christmas Foyer & Yard @ BCH

We decorate the outdoors at Blue Creek Home pretty much the same every year.  This year, I did swap out the door wreath for a swag that I got after Christmas last year.  I, of course, added some things to it!

The front door all decked out in it’s Christmas best!

This is the first year using this brown and green striped ribbon.
Here we are looking way up at the top of the transom behind the lantern.

These magnolias are glittery gold and green velvet.
Clear faceted baubles reflect the light.

These angels have shared a lot of Christmas’s with us.
They flank the sidelights.

The Wise men and the Christ Child welcome guests into the courtyard.

Blue Creek Home at Christmas time.

Santa, wrapped gifts, and a little train light up the front yard.

We are enjoying Jolly Old St. Nicholas for the second year!

The Auburn University Christmas tree is front and center at BCH!!!

Closer to the window revealing some orange and blue ornaments

Please, come in!

This banister is short, but it still gets plenty of attention!

This garland has all sorts of goodies attached to it.

More of the pretty striped ribbon was used to make a bow.

Halfway up is a sweet cherub all tucked into the greenery.

This larger cherub graces the top.

The foyer got extra love this Christmas!

Our main Christmas tree has red and lime green ornaments.
I used lime green and cinnamon in the foyer.

The cinnamon and green ornaments are tied to the tapestry rod with bronze organza ribbon.

An old piece of hotel silver holds this shiny tree.

A silver wine bucket holds the second one.
A garland of miniature glittered fruit covers the top.

My favorite lamp and a white poinsettia on the left end…

And another of my handmade Santa’s on the right side.
I used some personal vintage jewelry and fabric on this guy so
that I wouldn’t be convinced to sell it!  And he has a great face!

This photograph of Alexandra and Caroline comes out every Christmas!  The velveteen rabbits that the girls are holding in the center photograph also come out at Christmas.

This is where the bunnies landed this year!

  1. Oh Rhonda.
    Everything is just beautiful! Your attention to detail is wonderful. I wish I could add all the adornments to my garland but I'm afraid there is just too much of it! LOL. It would cost me a fortune and take me another week! UGH! I could look at yours for hours and still not get to see all there is to see.
    Beautiful. Just beautiful. Thanks for joining in!
