MA’S CHRISTMAS TIP FOR TODAY
Decorate the backs of dining chairs with bows or stockings
If you don’t have a mantle to hang those stockings from I think this would be a great idea.
Don’t you love the color red for decorating? It seems like it brightens up so many things. I got to wondering why the color red is used at Christmas and here is part of what I found.
Red is associated with the heart and the emotions, especially feelings of love and suffering, and the Christian virtue of Charity. Red is the color of the God of Love who suffered for humankind. It is the color of His courage and His sacrifice
Red or ruddy is sometimes used as a synonym for handsome or beautiful. It indicates youth, enthusiasm, immortality, and good health
The color of the sun, red is also reminiscent of fire, heat, creativity, life and the full moon
Red is the color of riches, power, and royalty . Christ, the divine king, came at Christmas time
I use red for decorating a lot around my house . Here are part of the decorations on the front porch at my house.
My favorite place on a hot summer day is the porch swing but it gets little use in the wintertime.
This cute little Santa hangs by the front door as a Christmas welcome to all
And of course no door way would be complete without a welcome mat
I hope you all are just about ready for Christmas.
Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!
