Christmas Decorations Spectacular Part I

The home tours this weekend were such fun.  Here are the first of a series of pictures I'd like to share with you.   I hope you will be inspired to try and recreate something similar in your own holiday decorating this year.  

I may try this one.  Cloves in fruit--always a classic.  It was on a limestone kitchen island.  

Doesn't this garland make you sigh!  Doesn't it say, "Come in, sit by the fire, let's talk and have some cider".  This is a 1925 Norman Revival style home.  

I seemed to see a fair amount of complimentary colors this year--not the usual contrasting red and green.  Most were like this example of orange/copper and red.

This lamp post is from the same house as the two pictures shown above.  The two ribbons are red and copper.

Here is a backyard shot from a 1934 Hollywood Regency styled home.  Everything was white, even the pickled floors.  Decorations were all white, silver and pale green.
