Christmas Decorating Ideas

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is visit all the little shops and enjoy their Christmas decor.  I get great decorating ideas and yummy refreshments!  I have been to this gorgeous shop many times over the is the Red Door in Amarillo Tx.  The lovely ladies there allowed me to take pictures of the shop and I am excited to share them with you!

The shop had so many beautiful trees...all with a different theme.   I love this one with kind of a "Snow Man meets MacKenzie-Childs"!

This tree was my favorite...sorry about the blurry photo...

The tree topper is so "sprouts" from the top of the tree....

and branches out across the ceiling!

It was decorated with such fun it!

As you can see, they decorate every inch of the shop....ceiling to floor!

I loved this life size Santa standing in front of the fireplace..
surrounded by beautiful trees...
Isn't his face sweet?
The white fur coat on this Santa was just the stockings!

Santa's tree was decorated in a woodland theme.

Isn't this Santa tree topper amazing?
his wrought iron reindeer was filled with neutral colored paper...had never thought of that idea!

Put some Jingle in your Jangle....

Beautiful candles.....

Gotta have Mickey and his group....

wreaths, pillows, elves, ribbon, flowers....
you name it...they have it!

All the decorations on the trees are available to purchase...

Their centerpieces are amazing...

This Santa was taller than me!
It was hard to decide what to buy, but I finally picked a Putz house and some bottle brush trees...can't wait to show them to you!    I want to thank the ladies at the Red Door again and if you are ever in Amarllo Tx, be sure to stop by and say hello or howdy as they say in Texas!


  1. Oh my gosh Penny!... what a magical Christmas shoppe!... you know how much I still love all of the traditional red and green...
