The soft cream colors here are accented with a touch of gold, and red for a classic look. This display in our shop is over filled, but at your home edit, then re edit.  At my home I often leave some decorations in storage, and take them out the next year,  they look new to me after that time.

This tree would be at home in the Lippit house in Providence, or you own mansion.  After all every man is the King of his house, and evey lady is the Queen, right?

The warm simple decorations are a greeting to friends and neighbors who come by.  Simple fresh cut greens from my yard accent the flower boxes.  Always try to do this before the cold hits. I have been known to have to boil pots of water to thaw out the soil just enough to get the stem in the soil! Making the job long and much more difficult.

A snowy New England morning at my home, I can smell the pan cakes, and the fresh coffee!  It doesn't take much to make a Christmas morning special, or a home more inviting than a simple classic design.

We like to offer a simple natural looking artificial decor to add charm to a front entrance.  This is easy to store and will last many years.  Using weather proof ribbon, and berries, makes this a long lasting investment, and a quick yearly joy to put in place.  You know it can be pretty cold when it is time to put these darn things up. The last thing you want to do is spend more time than you like out there doing it.  Mull the wine I'll be in one minute!
