A little burlap this holiday season...

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

This year I wanted to add a little something different to our Christmas decor.... burlap. And last night, we found the perfect store in Pelham to make my dreams come true. Today, my mom made it all come together. The Sowell's are now officially decorated for the holidays. (On the inside... we haven't taken down our MSU wreath, yet!)

And now... for the different variations of burlap...

Our stairs are wrapped in garland with lime green, red and burlap... yep that's three layers, y'all!

And our mantle has some of the same colors, but different burlap and ribbon... two layers!

And our beautiful tree... with the three layers again! And the tree skirt is my original with a burlap runner bunched around the base of the tree.

So... what do y'all think about my addition to burlap this year? And didn't my mom do a great job?!?

Thanks mom... if it wasn't for you... we probably wouldn't have any decorations up this year.

I guess the Sowell's need to start Christmas shopping to put some presents under that tree!

  1. I am now jealous of your beautifully decorated house! Now, to figure out who will help me with mine! Ha!

  2. I absolutely love it!!! Your mom is amazing at decorating. It's easy to see where you get your flair!!

    And I do wonder sometimes (by reading your posts) if you and Terry aren't preparing for a little big gift sometime next year (if you know what I mean!! :0)

  3. Just beautiful, Joy! You had me at burlap! I live how you incorporated it in with your colors! I am itching to put mine out, but I will have to wait until Sunday due to a craft fair on Saturday. Awesome decor and way to keep out that MSU wreath!

  4. Stunning!!! I love that burlap ribbon! Looks so festive!

  5. I love the ribbon, what a fun idea!! My mom used to do something similar but not that grand, I love this!

  6. I am visiting your blog from the Cupcake Diaries blog hop and let me just say your tree is GORGEOUS! I adore the burlap and geo mesh! LOVE!

  7. So pretty and cozy! You did a wonderful job on all of your DIY projects:)! I linked up on Kelly's Korner with a burlap Christmas, too...happy holidays!


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
