Christmas Door Decor

Our Christmas door decor is up and burning through electricity! That electric meter sure is making Nashville Electric Service really happy right now! Don't you hate getting your electric bill in January? I do! I do my best to be conscious of turning the lights off, but they are so pretty!

Here's a look at the Christmas decor that surrounds our front door. I hung artificial garland wrapped in lights around the door and added a few red, green, and gold ornaments. I stuck two pre-lit topiary trees into the painted urns. And my puffy Christmas wreath is still looking B-E-A-utiful!

The daytime pics are not very pretty at all. Christmas decor meant to be pretty at night always looks bad during the day. Don't you think? All those icicle lights hanging from the gutters and garland wrapped around columns just looks horrible during the day! But it sure does look great at night! I love driving around to look at Christmas lights at night! 

Here it is all lit up at night! I love how it just glows! And my yellow door is smiling too!

Do you decorate the outside of your house or just stick to the inside? Does opening your electric bill in January scare you as much as it does me?!
Make sure you enjoy the reason for the season!

It looks very pretty! When we used to go all out with the lights, back when the kids were younger, I just dreaded that bill coming! LOL! Of course, that didn't stop me from putting the lights on, but I did make 10 p.m., my "off time".
