A Bee-utiful Christmas Sun Porch

I have a bee theme in the sun room and I tell's hard to get get a feeling of Christmas  in there without  redoing the whole room.         

So,    I tried my best to just add some touches of Christmas to the room that would look okay with the bee theme.

The first thing I did was put a couple of red and white buffalo check pillows on the sofa.

I found a couple of Christmas bee themed art on Pinterest and printed them out on my home printer.   I tucked one in the strings of the violin hung above the sofa.

I put the other print above the sofa on this side.

I left the existing bee throw at the end of the sofa.      I thought a Christmas themed throw would have looked better,   but I don't have one and didn't want to buy!

Here's a close up of the bee themed throw.

I put a stack of sweet Christmas boxes on the chaise lounge.......they aren't in the way of someone sitting there because usually we just set on the end.

I put a bouquet of  Christmas Paper whites on the coffee table.

Now to add some Christmas to the other side of the room.     

I put a pillow in each rocker that match the ones on the sofa.

I have bee themed pictures hung over the french doors........

Here's the other bee sign....... it was a gift from one of my very best friends

I found this tiny bee pillow at a yard sale a few years ago.

Here's the last wall in the sun room.......

I have bee's in the floral design.........

For a touch of whimsy,    I added a couple of wasp nests

On the side table,     I have a ceramic bee hive and a Christmas magazine.       I was honored to be a contributor in this years edition and share photo's of our home.

I do love a challenge,    and I have to admit that adding Christmas touches to the sun room was a real challenge!

Merry Christmas!


  1. Love, love, love all the decorations in your house. I want to try something new in mine. Wish you would include a post where you tell how you have painted all the beautiful furniture in your house shades of white. I would love to try that on some dark furniture that I have. Bet your husband has a lot to do with painting the furniture. Seems like you have a gem of a husband. Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year.

  2. I love the door sideways on the wall best! That is a great idea. Merry Christmas Penny!
