Christmas Decor 2009

The main ballroom tree; a joint effort, but not done by me. I spent the whole day making wreaths and doing bows, and none of my photos was good. These pix are all from Brier Creek Country Club.

This and the next two are close-ups of the ornaments on the ballroom tree.

This ornament is about 8" long; much bigger than it looks here.

The bottom part of the lobby tree.

Swags over the doorways in the golf shop.

We worked from 9am until 5:30 pm today. Every two years we replace all the lights in the wreaths and trees and this is our year to do that. There are 3 trees, about 20 wreaths of all sizes, several areas of garlanding and decor on wall sconces. Then we do the golf shop and the tennis club, so it takes seven people all day!

Driving home on Interstate 540 is dicey at best, but in a heavy rainstorm at 5:30 - it is a double hell! I thought I'd never get home. My plan was to stop for dinner at a restaurant on the way, but halfway there (after 30 minutes in the car for a trip that should have taken only 12 minutes) I called mr. kenju and said dinner would have to be Thanksgiving leftovers (once again). He wasn't happy about it, but he had no choice. Tomorrow we start the Governor's Mansion Christmas decor. I doubt dinner will be any fancier then.....LOL

Hi. I like especially those swags over the doorways. It must be busy time for you but it seems that you can manage it. I love decorating our house for Christmas but it's nothing according what you do. However, I enjoy every minute of decorating probably that's the reason why I'm so slow. But the atmosphere is great.

Take care,
