My Inspiring Christmas

Hi everyone, Thank you everyone who commented to my last post or have sent your prayers, they are all appreciated. Let's do Christmas everyone. I put Christmas up early this year, because Mr. Swedish Room wanted to have the office Christmas party at our house. Might I say parties are nice when they are not at your house. So instead of being the evil Christmas witch this year, I decided to give in and start the party. Did I say Christmas witch, I meant SUPER CHRISTMAS WITCH. Lets say my Martha Stewart gene was going into overdrive. Everything had to be perfect and unique, everything had to be cleaned and recleaned. The house had to be redone, and redone again. Might I say I yelled so much, I couldn't stand myself. Somehow by the grace of God we made it. It was a nice party and I will show you some of the redoes, but not today. Instead let me show you some Christmas at The Room.
I found this idea at Pottery Barn. I said to myself, I have a Christmas tree and I have a birdcage. Why not? Only thing I bought at Pottery Barn that day were the birds at $5.00 each. I thought they gave me the idea, so I could spend a little money with them.
This is a vintage ornament I've had for years. She get the royal treatment when she gets packed away.
A couple of years ago I painted some dollhouse furniture white and just stuck them in the tree. Everyone thinks what a fun idea. The little silver chair is actually a place card holder. I put a hook on it instant ornament.
A sort of full view of the tree. All white and silver, my two favorite colors.
Take away gifts for the party guest and on hand for visitors who stop by.
For more great Christmas ideas go visit Debra at
for Vintage Inspiration Friday.
Go hugs someone today.
See everyone later....


  1. Oh my goodness I love your tree, the tiny doll furniture is an exceptionally clever idea. Beautiful! Have a happy holiday!

  2. Your tree is beautiful, and I do love the doll furniture. I can only imagine how hard a party would be, but I'm sure it was a wonderful success! Take care of yourself and relax a little,
