Try this trick when decorating – hang a smaller snowflake in front of a larger snowflake, making sure they are different colors. I used a red in front of a clear snowflake in this design.

It’s all about the GINGERBREAD!

    Wow! Wow! and more Wow!

    I am amazed at the attention to detail. The decorations blend flawlessly throughout the home. What I can’t imagine is how many years it must have taken to build up this large amount of high quality pieces and the time it must take to put up the displays and add all of the perfect touches.

    Eileen, your work is truly the best I have ever seen.

    What another spectacular display! Stepping into your home, I always feel like I’m walking into a TRUE Christmas wonderland. The decorations are magical. YET!, leaves me with a warm, family-focused, and love-filled feeling. Nothing is forgotten and no short-cuts. The creativity and attention to detail is a God-given talent… Simply put: amazing!

  5. Heather says:

    WOW! Thanks for sharing your photos. I especially love the gingerbread tree and the use of the popcorn/cranberry garland in conjunction with the oversized candy accents as a topper!

    You are so talented and I have gotten a lot of inspiration for my trees next year! Thanks.

  6. Joyce says:

    Great pictures of your decorations, thanks for sharing!

  7. meg says:

    OOOOOOOOhhhhh …. I can’t believe I didn’t get to see these “live”! DARN! But thanks so much for sharing the pics.

    You know, I watched just about every HGTV Christmas show this year and I can honestly say that none of those decorators come close to creating the magic you do EVERY year. Your work makes me smile AND inspires me and I am sure I speak for everyone who sees your creations.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, Eileen… Can’t wait to see your wonderful displays in 2010!!

  8. Linda says:

    Thank you so much for sharing these BEAUTIFUL pictures, Eileen. I really enjoyed “visiting” and can’t wait to see what inspires you for 2010.
