Not much of what you see here is new this year, with the possible exception of lights and ribbons.
The clubs only fund the purchase of new items every 3-4 years, so we have to "fluff up" and re-use all the trees, wreaths and ornaments. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I will try to answer them soon.

Judy,

Thank you very much for going to the trouble to post these beautiful pictures.

You know it would be impossible for us to visit any of these places so your pictures are the only way we get to see the beauty and detail of these wreaths,mantle pieces and trees.

Thanks again......

Oh, I miss Raleigh. I use to work on the 17th floor of what was then the 1st Union bldg., where the Cardinal Club is. The trees/decor are beautiful!

Beverly said...

Always love your pictures.

I could look at trees all day. I just had to cancel a tea and Christmas tour at an old mansion in town for another invite ... Cirque du Soleil! So I guess I'll be seeing some lights after all.

Mar said...

I love the wreaths!! I think it is a great decision to fund the purchase of new items only every 3-4 years.

PI said...

Ooooh I'm getting quote excited. We've just booked a pre Christmas lunch at one of our favourite Inns.
Beautiful decor Judy - as usual.

The only question I have is when can you come to my house to decorate my tree?
LOL
No seriously, this is my first year with our new tree decorations and my first year using ribbon streamers.
Am I correct in assuming that it looks best to use an odd number of streamers on the tree?

Tanya (aka NetChick) said...

Hey Judy! I haven't been around these parts in a while...

NetChick (oh ya, that's me) sent me :)

I thought I'd come over and say hi, and thanks for participating in the Meet n' Greet! I hope I can give you guys a new place to have some fun each weekend.

The decorations are lovely. I put mine up last week... No tree tho.

Have an awesome Friday night!

Jean said...

I love them. May I borrow two or three to decorate my blogs the way I did last year and credit you?

Wendy said...

Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I really enjoyed looking at all the lovely decorations.

I just love all these holiday decorations!
The trees, wreaths, and ornaments are so lovely.
We use the same stuff year after year, so I guess it's okay that they do that too. I usually purchase a couple of new things to add something different to our mix of decor, but I don't mind the same old stuff at all.

More Christmas Beauty, Judy. Visiting you really sets the whole feeling of Christmas into motion, for me. Very Festive and Very Beautiful, my dear.

Laura said...

I've never thought of using ornaments that hang down inside the middle of a wreath. That's a great idea, and one I might try this year. All of these trees and decor are just gorgeous!

Your Christmas decorations are very festive. Everything is perfect.
