Wildcard Wednesday: Crazy about the Living Room

Last week I started my Christmas tour in the kitchen, as well as sharing a tablescape in my breakfast nook.....this week I'm moving on to the the living room.

I'll start with our 9+ foot live Christmas tree, which I decorated in shades of red & green.

Here's another angle.

And here's a look with the lights turned off.
{Excuse the furniture.}

After adding the lights, I started with the top of the tree..... where a couple of Mark Roberts santas are perched.  Red & green glittery branches, grapes, & holly berries add some fullness and interest.
{Unfortunately, the pics just don't do it justice.}

Ribbon, mesh, ornaments, and other fun elements decorate the rest of the tree.

As you might have noticed, several fairies even found their way onto the branches.
In case you haven't caught on, I absolutely love fairies and santas by Mark Roberts! 
(You'll see a few more as the tour continues!)

A few other Christmas elements are added here & there.....

.....another fairy is perched on a stack of books on the end table......

......while a few ornaments add some Christmas spirit to the coffee table.

A few Christmas pillows are thrown on the couch & chair as well......

.....while the whole reason for CHRISTmas is displayed on another table.

Moving to the opposite side of the room, the armoire receives more Christmas spirit, with candles, greenery, & berries.

When "burning", they add a beautiful glow.

I'll back up just a little so you can get a glimpse of that side of the room.

Next to the armoire is the tuffet I love so much, which is now displaying another santa, greenery, and more ornaments.
  {To see the tables, armoire, and tuffet decorated for other seasons, click here and here.}

And you might have caught a glimpse of the mantel a time or two.....
well, last but definitely not least, here it is!
I plan to make a coordinating wreath and maybe add some candles next year!
I must give my husband credit for helping me put this together!  Not only did he wire the greenery together for me so that it would form a "V" in the middle like I wanted, but he also spent over 4 hours helping me wire the ornaments, ribbon, grapes, and flowers to the greenery!

Here are a couple close-ups:
{I just might have to do a tutorial on this at some point!}

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're enjoying the tour.  Be sure to come back next week as the tour continues!
