The reason...

Some might describe my Christmas decor as non-traditional but if you take a second to think about it, I mean really, really think about it, I'd say you can't get more traditional.


I was watching a show the other day and the host said, "Your entry is the place where you set the tone for the rest of your house. It should lead people to get a good idea about who you are simply by stepping foot into your house."

And that, my friends, is what I had in mind when I pulled out the Christmas decorations this year.
Plain, simple and the reason for the season front and center.

 Put your thinking caps on and see if you can guess the symbolism behind the 3 feathers placed in the wreath!
Ok, before you go thinking I'm all holier than thou, I must disclose that there's another reason behind my design. When I pulled out our Christmas decorations I quickly realized what once looked good in our Austin house, doesn't look so hot in our Dallas house. So, instead of buying all new things, I decided to shift my focus and remember the reason for the season.

Three wiseman?

Three kids? (crap...I don't know how many kiddos you have)

You found a genie and it represents your three wishes?

Three times you've almost come and visited me here in Plano?

Regardless, it looks lovely.

I LOVE that you put the Reason For The Season front and center, Dana, and in all it's beautiful simplicity too. I'm guessing the 3 Wise Men?

i think it looks beautiful and love the tone you are setting upon entry. :) perfection! and i think the feathers are the father, son, and holy spirit.

I love this. Very simple, but still a lot of things to look at.

My first thought was Father, Son, Holy Spirit, but I like the 3 wise men idea as well.

You're so good at simple, modern and significant! What a beautifully quiet statement your entry makes, my friend!

It is so true that what works in one home does not necessarily work in another and your eye for good design figured that out. Love the figurines, Dana.
