Christmas in the Formal Living/Dining Room

Our family living/dining room is decorated in casual shabby chic,   but the formal living/dining room has a very formal Victorian look.
  It is the first room on your left when you come into the entry.

I didn't change the decor on the faux fireplace......the glove garland has been there a while.....and the mantel looks like it has all year with only the addition of two little Christmas trees.

Here is a close up of the tree and you can see some of the entry Christmas decor in the background.

You can hardly see the lights on the tree because of all the flowers....mostly roses......maybe I have too much stuff on the!

I love to take photo's of my vignettes reflected in a nearby mirror......

I have big pink roses on my tree.......

Frosted poinsettia's   .........

I decorated all the way to the floor........what's that on the floor?

a wooden decorated deer head!

If you look close at the tree,  you can even see a few poppy's.......

This is the view from the entry.......

And this is the view of the entry from the other end of the formal living room.

Merry Christmas!
