last minute decoration ideas

Tonight we host our annual Christmas Eve Eve party here on the farm. This year it is a very relaxed event, with good friends, wine, and easy food. Mostly it is about the company - a few neighbors, a few work associates, a few old friends, and a couple new.

I spent much of yesterday organizing and tidying so that the house could be properly cleaned today. I am also in a never-ending search for decorations that I find interesting and festive. As I have a few hours today, I thought I might try a couple more~

I found the following ideas and now would love to try them all!

I have a number of tripods for my summer vines - what a fabulous idea!

I absolutely adore old photos~ I collect photos of vintage beach scenes.

And Country Living always provides fabulous inpiration~

Enjoy these last few days before Christmas arrives!

Enjoy your party!

We have an annual Solstice gathering with some of our oldest friends, which always marks the beginning of the festive holiday for us. In theory this is when I should be relaxing now, but for the first time in year's I've left quite a bit til the last minute... eek!

Have fun!

These are some fabulous ideas Kim ~ loving the photo wreath and the ones placed in with the pottery.

Have a wonderful evening with friends and family ~ wish I was closer as I would drop in for a glass of wine!
