Deck the Stairs with Boughs of…Winter Greens


I usually do a grand pine garland on my staircase…this year I had a few setbacks so it was a simple take on Christmas stairs and I have to say I love it!


I tied little swags to the banisters with burlap ribbon and then hung coordinating ones on the scones going up the stairs. 


I already had these little fellas, as I used them in my garland from last year.  So it was easy AND didn’t cost me anything but the ribbon!

   I do. :)

I was  a little bummed I didn’t get my usual greenery up, but making sure all you greenery is up is not what the season is about.  Just making your home feel the Spirit of the Holidays with little special touches is enough.  Taking time to enjoy the season with friends and family is time well spent. 

Merry Christmas!

Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up    party!
