Celebrating the HOLIDAY on a HOUSEBOAT

Festivity comes to our floating home...finally. We have had the tree up for a week now and last night put the lights and decorations on it. That was just what I needed to put some wind in my sails to decorate the rest of the house. This Sunday the annual Christmas Ship parade goes by and we will be hosting Fourteen people for dinner and the festivities.

Add a touch of whimsy to the center of your wreath with a Dickens character holding a potted Christmas tree.

Dwight's stocking is the gray one...I didn't need to tell you that did I

Being on the water its all about the view...white walls, white sofas with hints of blue and accents of orange. I love this flocked white tree it blends right in with our decor.

  Use vessels you already have around the house and add a touch of greenery or something more glamorous like these bejewled branches kissed with nesting old world blown glass clip-on birds.

Don't forget your powder room...This is sooo easy I threaded old world ornaments through a wide ribbon and draped it around the powder room mirror. And of course add a holiday towel to your towel ring.


I hope you have found some inspiration for your holiday decor...most important ingredient make it easy and have fun!
