Deck the Halls

 Hello Everyone!

I originally wanted to publish this post on December 1st, but I didn't finish putting up the Christmas Tree until last week. Yes you read that right, last week lol. 

Last year for the first time I put up the tree before Thanksgiving, actually I had the tree up on November 8th. This year as I mentioned the tree went up the first week of December. I think my lack of energy has been coming from sinus issues due to the weather constantly changing, and having anemia issues. Nonetheless, I got things done.

The tree, ornaments, and decorations are the same from last year as well. I went for a silver, clear, and white theme. I think these colors look so well together especially when the tree is lit.

The Christmas Snow Village

Since it rarely snows in South Carolina, I wanted to do another Christmas Snow Village on the glass table. I can't recall ever having a white Christmas, but I think snow at Christmas time looks so pretty. I remember one year it snowed the night after my birthday, but not actually on Christmas lol. When I want to be reminded of snow I look at my Christmas Snow Village.

This is the Christmas Snow Village for now, but I was thinking about rearranging some of the items around. 

All the Christmas Lights


Now that I've decorated for Christmas, I like to look at all the Christmas lights. I love watching Home Alone 2 Lost in New York.

Bath & Body Works Fresh Balsam 3 Wick Candle


Over the years I've grown to love Fresh Balsam. This used to be a candle I couldn't stand to smell. When I'm decorating for Christmas this is my go to candle. Since I can't have a real tree because of my allergies, this candle is the next best thing. Are you finished decking the halls?

Pilar, your tree is beautiful! And I so appreciate gazing at it because I didn't have a tree this year for the first time. I guess some people get a permit and cut their own tree down in the woods. And I'll have to do that early next year! Your white and silver theme is so pretty, and I also had that as well in hopes of a white Christmas. Well, I was blessed to look out my window and see a blanket of snow, and it's coming and coming all this week. I hope you get some as well. Your Balsam candle must fill your home with a wonderful scent. Home Alone 2 Lost in New York is one of my favorites, and I've also been watching it. Your Christmas snow village is so charming, and I love that lit up tree. You always find the most amazing home decor, Pilar, and you have a flare for decorating. The star on top of your tree is beautiful.

Have a merry December week.

Your tree is so elegant Pilar!
The village is adorable. Snow seems lovely but coming from a place where storms can leave 2 - 3 feet of snow in a short time, it is not fun. It is pretty coming down but when the power goes out and the house starts losing heat, it can be really unpleasant. LOL Then there is the aftermath of the storm which leads to all sort of problems.
I love SC weather!

Thanks Sheri! Oh no! I'm sorry you didn't get to get a tree! I would love to see snow for Christmas, but it rarely snows here lol I've been burning Fresh Balsam so much this holiday season! I love the scent! I've see Home Alone 2 Lost in New York at least 4 times in the past few weeks! When I want to be reminded of snow I look at my Christmas Snow Village ❄🙂 Have a Merry Christmas!

Thanks Paola!

Thanks Val! My best friend always talks about how when it snows up north the power goes out etc. South Carolina weather has been all over the place lately lol! Our weather is nice though when it's not to hot and humid.

Pilar said...

Thanks Melle! I don't think south will see snow this Christmas lol! Merry Christmas!
