Christmas Decor (Tablescape and Outdoor Lights)

Merry Christmas everyone!
Yes, I am actually posting on my blog on Christmas Eve!!
Since I will be busy the next few days traveling and celebrating with my family, I wanted to share Part 2 of my home Christmas Decor tour. You can find Part 1 of the tour HERE.

Below is my dining room tablescape. Ive had this dinnerware for several years and just LOVE the holly and pine cone theme.
The two-tiered server I have as a centerpiece was a find a few years back at one of our local antique malls (We have several in our area).
It is filled with all kinds of colorful pieces; including pine cones, ornaments, natural  and painted balls, curled reeds, bells, ribbon, and even a few of my seashells.(Just to have a little of my beach theme here, as well.)
 I love the design on my small dessert plates and added a real pine cone and some holly on top of each plate. Underneath these plates, I have my red dinner plates.
 A green placemate holds it all together at each setting. The cloth napkin sits above each plate, wrapped in silver elastic, holding a red or green bell. My red silverware matches perfectly, too! 
 I got these holly and berry goblets at goodwill for a mere $1 a piece!
I love this theme, as it goes nicely as a Christmas setting, but can be used for formal meals throughout the winter season!

 Below, I am sharing a few outside pictures of our Christmas decor.
This wreath hangs on our garage door entrance. That is real snow covering the top...a result of a recent snowstorm.
 Here are a few decorations on our front porch area.
We originally had thought we wouldn't be putting our outside lights up this year, as we have been too busy to put them up. But, just a few nights ago, my hubby surprised me and put a few of our lights up without telling me first. It's amazing how a few Christmas lights can boost one's spirit and put you in a Christmas mood!
 Even my wreath got some sparkle lights!!
 Hoping you all are able to spend some precious time with family and love ones this time of the year!
 Have a very Merry Christmas Day!!
