I hope you all had a lovely weekend, did you finish up your last minute Christmas shopping and decorating? I just finished up Saturday…the presents are in the mail, and the decorating is finished. I don’t think I have ever finished up this close to Christmas, but I am excited to sit back, relax and enjoy the holidays.
This week, I will be sharing our Christmas decorations, starting today with a brief tour of the house…
Merry Christmas, welcome to The Mustard Ceiling…
The mustard ceiling in the entry is how the blog got it’s name, for the story behind it, click here.
The living room is my favorite room this year! Last weekend, I sewed the charcoal herringbone and black flannel pillow covers for winter and dressed the mantel.
The dining room is dressed for Christmas dinner, the color scheme this year was an earthy green and bronze.
The first Christmas we spent in our home, we set-up the Christmas tree in the large bay window in our living room. However, we quickly realized it needed to be in the family room, where spend spend all of our time.
The past two years we have had in the the family room. I love laying on the sofa at night with just the Christmas lights on watching the tree.

One of my favorite ornaments, a Christopher Radko. Have you heard of his ornaments?
They’re very special to me. Every year as a tradition, my mom, dad and I would drive over to The Greenbrier Hotel for lunch on Christmas Eve.
The Greenbrier is magical anytime of year, but especially at Christmas. It is decorated to the hilt with beautifully adorned Christmas trees and holiday decor throughout the hotel. Hot cocoa, smore’s and chestnuts roasting over an open fire are served on the patio, it is truly a special place and one of my favorite tradition’s.
So each year we would drive over, enjoy the festivities, and on the way home we would stop at the Christmas Depot (the old Greenbrier train depot) and dad would buy my mom and me a new Radko ornament for the tree.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the tour!
