I’m not usually one who decorates for Christmas. Growing up, we didn’t place much emphasis on the cultural and commercial traditions of Christmas. I found out the truth about Santa at about age 4, we stopped having a Christmas tree well before I graduated from high school, I didn’t learn the words to Frosty the Snowman, and I went 27 years without living in a house with Christmas lights hung outside.

Well, this year that changed. The local sorority chapter asked if I would be interested in putting my house on their annual Christmas tour of homes, the proceeds of which support local charities.

With no experience decorating for Christmas (and not owning any Christmas decorations), I sought help from the owner/decorator/creative genius at B. Whimsy. I still couldn’t make myself go totally traditional – so no real Christmas tree, no red, and no Santa. Kari did a great job decorating, and it was amazing to watch the transformation! Here are a few pics of the results:
