Our daughter loves Christmas decorations. Like, REALLY loves them. Around November she starts asking when the decorations will be up in our house, the restaurants we visit, the neighborhoods on our routes. Ah, the neighborhood entrances. We moved into a neighborhood without an HOA about 7 years ago. So, we’ve listened to her for the last 6 years talk about how sad it is that our neighborhood didn’t have any Christmas decorations. And we agreed. So, we did something about it. This year, Brooks and I took it upon ourselves to decorate our neighborhood entrances. Merry Christmas to our neighbors.
Our House Decorations
I love vintage Christmas decorations.
I mix in some real greenery.
Lots of Christmas pillows.
And a few store bought items.
It’s sure to be treasured for years to come.
Our Christmas Tree
Our Christmas tree is decorated the same way each year. We have a faux, lightly flocked tree.
We add a sea shell wall hanging as a garland, add some white felt balls, some sterling silver ornaments we got as a wedding present, and add a few large turquoise balls for color.
I just hosted my third annual Christmas Cookie exchange. It’s always so fun. I have about 25 friends come. Each brings 4 dozen cookies. We laugh, catch up, nibble some appetizers and then everyone goes home with 4 dozen assorted cookies. If you can host a party where every guest goes home with something like cookies- it guarantees a good time.
I also hosted a small brunch for my friend Rhoda from Southern Hospitality Blog and her husband, Mark. Here’s a photo of what I put together for that.
Not Christmas related, but I was a recent guest on THE BUSINESS BRUSH. You can listen to my interview about how we got started and how we run our business. I was interviewed after I attended a business mastermind group in Denver where we met with other paint business owners from across the country. We learned best practices for running our painting business. While we were there, they made a video for each business. Here’s mine:
2018 has been a great year for our business and we would like to thank you our clients, followers and friends. We couldn’t do it without you helping us share the word about what we do.

Merry Christmas from the Tucker house to yours!!
