My Christmas and New Years decorating is going to the dogs

As the holiday season comes to an end, my decorating has gone to the dogs.

Here is the dining room set with bottle brush trees, the good china, silver, the stockings are hung, and the tree decorated.

Olive our small and very funny dog has decided to check out the table-scape, I guess she is not a fan of espresso.

To set the scene for a fresh start in the New Year we filled cylinder vases with Orchids (in various sizes), and moss. It is such a simple but elegant display. I love grouping orchids together as a centerpiece. After the party, I can then disperse them all over the house to perk things up after the holiday decorating comes down.

Olive invited her little sister Coco (the lab) and their friend Mazy to come see what we were planning for New Years Day brunch.

Coco is terrified that my husband might come in and see her…breaking the rules, but not Mazy she helps herself to some pound cake.

I hope you all have a very happy and healthy holiday season. Enjoy time with your friends & families, and meet me back here in 2015. I am so looking forward to having my wonderful neighbors for Christmas Eve, and then my sister and brother and their families (from California) to ring in the New Year.

Best wishes to all of you, and thank you for reading my blog.

XO, Celia
