**Happy Holiday's**

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I leave you with a few pictures of my humble abode, all dolled up for the season. Branches is wrapping up our last wedding of the season and we are THRILLED to announce some very exciting things for 2012.

 Just like the classic Christmas song Silver and Gold by Burl Ives, my Christmas tree was also adorned with shades of silver and gold. However, I went with a very unique approach by adding touches of woodland charm. I adorned the evergreen with things like giant snow balls, gold ferns, white owls, birds nests, birds cages, gold evergreen garland and silver dusted foliage. I finished it all off with fresh florals like gold curly willow, baby's breath and birch shavings. 

A simple garland for my staircase was jazzed up with the use of real Christmas greens airbrushed a beautiful gold. A few Christmas picks were added for a more plush look and to tie in with the tree, I added more baby's breath and a few pine cones. 

Yes, I have two Christmas trees! One real and one fake. What can I say, I love Christmas!
My family room tree was a more simple approach. Adorned with non-traditional colors like brown, burnt orange and cool blue, this scheme still exudes the warmth of Christmas and all its charm.

This was my Christmas project this year.  Wooden trees painted to match my decor. Aren't they darling!?

Lastly is my 1/3 bath.  Funny thing is this is the only room in my home with any color that resembles traditional Christmas. The bathroom colors are normally a bright turquoise green-blue and cherry red which works great for a few added touches of red Christmas bulbs and a mini Santa.
