ALL THAT GLITTERS

 
This weekend I was finally able to getting around to decking the halls here at the Casa du Borghese. I looked forward to pulling out all my vintage ornaments and decorations. More on that later. This post is about a good friend's place. But I have a long way to go though to live up to the classically vintage, elegant holiday decorations of my good friend and floral magician the Dame Courtney, who is the Queen of Christmas. I love his color scheme and use of natural elements such as branches, the snow and the use of balls everywhere. One holiday tradition that I share with my good friend is displaying containers of Christmas balls, which is a quick, easy, but festive look. They are very easy to make your home perfect for the holidays. Everything you see here too is vintage, how cool is that?  I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season right now!
 
Even a sleigh!!!!!!
The beautiful fireplace mantel
I'm loving these candles
 
Take a gander upstairs in the hall way and master suite.....
 
Would you believe me if I tell you it takes him weeks to get up, and only about 4 days to take down???? I told you he knew magic.
