Christmas Carols: Deck the Halls Part 2

Fill the mead-cup, drain the barrel,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol,
Fa la la la la la la la la.

In part one of our Deck the Halls feature, we visited my friend Denise's house and toured her glorious entry and living room.  Today, we take a peek a some equally gorgeous rooms in the house, starting with the kitchen . . .

 Every corner in the kitchen speaks of Christmas, from the alcove behind the stove . . .

 to the festive dishes in the plate rack . . .

 to the sparkling fruit tree at the sink . . .

 to the pot rack draped in cedar boughs and fruit.

And what a clever way to showcase a Christmas cookie cutter collection!  Such a simple, yet brilliant finishing touch to this warm holiday kitchen.

The dining room is just as elegant with its poinsettias and large nativity on the buffet . . .

and its chandelier decked in ribbons, pine, and sugared fruit.

Finally, you have got to admire a woman who has enough Christmas gusto to decorate her laundry room.  After all, if any room in the house needs some Christmas spirit, it has to be the laundry room.  Doing load after load becomes a little more magical when you have a sweet little village to look at above the washer and dryer.

Come back tomorrow to enjoy some Christmas bedrooms and family room decor!
