Christmas Decorating Part Two and Three and...

I was so very late decorating for Christmas this year that I did not have the opportunity to share photos of my efforts before the Big Day.
So here's the Rest of the Story.

My Mom's display of Christmas plates in the kitchen.

The dining room hutch

The Christmas table - a place setting

The Christmas table, the hutch and, the forest on the buffet.

The Christmas table

My Kitchen Trees

This tree is adorned with cupcakes and cookies.

More Christmas Goodies decorations

The family room
The media center and the Big Bird Tree

The media center display

Santas

Noah's Arks

With the Big Bird tree as the over arching theme, I decided to display the Emma Bridgewater bird mugs I collected while in England atop the media center.

The right side

Game Birds, Robins, and Raptors

These six mugs are extra special as all represent birds I actually 'saw' while in the U.K.
From left to right: Blackbird, Green Woodpecker, Mistle Thrush, Robin, London Pigeon, and the Great Spotted Woodpecker.

Needless to say the cats fully approved on this year's Christmas theme!

Your decorations are beautiful Beth! Your table is gorgeous. It's great to have so much display space. The mugs are fabulous - I'm having a cup of coffee out of a kitty china mug :)

Seeing your Christmas decorating has become one of my favorite things to do at Christmas now! Love the nativities and now the 'bird' room! Your new mugs are the first thing I saw when I opened the picture! What a great display they are, for you to remember that momentous trip last year! Hugs!
