Christmas Home Tour 2011: Cheryl's House

Welcome To Cheryl's Holiday Home

My amazing Mother-In-Law is a smart, driven, energetic person. Unfortunately for her husband (B) and last son at home (T), that drive gets concentrated on Christmas decorating for a few crazy days every November. But I think when you see the pictures (Which still don't do the house justice,) you will agree with me that it is totally worth the work. (Even if B and T don't agree :) )

I am so excited for you to come in and see this tree!

Entry Tree
I love the color scheme in here: deep, rich gold and amethyst. It goes beautifully with the formal dining room; see lower in the post...

Family Room

The Candy Tree
I like to think of this as the kids' tree. It's so playful.

Imagine you are a toddler looking at this tree: this is what you'd see.  

Have you ever seen a happier looking tree?

Kitchen Dining

The table is always set and gorgeous. We actually had to "Un-set" the table this week to eat a less formal meal :)

No nook or cranny goes undecorated.
What countertop is complete without a tree?
A Nod to a Texas Heritage

Formal Dining Room
Beautiful Nativity
Three Wise Men

 A perfect piano room to go play a Christmas Carol.

Eight Million Smaller Trees All Over The House...

We actually Counted one year, and I think it came out to 19 Christmas trees if I am not mistaken...

So there you have it: a home that is gorgeous all year long, but really *Sparkles* this time of year. 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my Mother-In-Law for putting up with YEARS of complaints and teasing from the men who see no point in any of this, because the women in this family know that it is worth it!


  1. I love your mother-in-law's house--but I love your mother-in-law more! :)
