This is our first holiday season in our 1893 house and we have always wanted to host a Victorian Christmas party. Since I just completed my masters degree in Public History, it was the perfect opportunity to have a party and get the house decorated. We brought nature inside and decorated with cypress garland, boughs, red berries, etc.
|I want to keep the garland up all year round!|
|Boughs on the frames|
|Edmond and Nellie-Bly wish you a Happy Christmas.|
|Two Eastlake mirrors I picked up at the antique fair last weekend.|
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday this year and as our Christmas cards say, "Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man." --Benjamin Franklin
