Christmas shared…

The big day is over, doesn’t it go fast?  In the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve we have a more relaxed time to enjoy the holidays.  Overnight we had our first storm of the season with snow, ice, sleet and wind…welcome to winter.

Now it is time to see other’s holidays…

The Nominator shared the imaginative designs she created at St. Thomas, Whitemarsh.  Imagine the delight of the parishoners walking down this stunning aisle.  Wouldn’t a bride love this too?

In front of the rood screen, a serene solstice mood was created with white roses, birch, and softly falling orchid blossoms to create a lovely fall of snow.

Another state, another aisle, Mrs. Flower Show created a lush red and green scheme …all the arches have garlands – imagine the candles lit…

Poinsettias and a large variety of mixed greens set off the magnificent stained glass and altar.

A handsome design echoes the altar but uses entirely different plant material.

Homage a Three Pines….does anyone read the superb Louise Penny novels with the wonderful Armand Gamache, set mostly in the Quebec village of Three Pines?

How much fun to see lots of jaunty topiaries, each with a different container and combination.

How beautiful is Mrs. Olana’s Christmas dessert?

Of course anything by grandchildren is the best, here pinecone are place cards. Hope your holiday was beautiful and wonderfull.
