exterior holiday decor...PB inspired

Remember when I mentioned my inspiration for our exterior holiday decor,
here it is....all ready to greet guests for tomorrow's party!


Here's the Pottery Barn version, very pretty, but....
do you think their snow is the real deal?

 

I have some lanterns, I could have casually arranged them along the walk,
instead I used them for this


From our front gate...


Our front patio...


I had all the wreaths and garland and purchased the ornaments from Dollar Tree. 
                           Sorry for the poor photos, it was snowing!!!  I love Colorado!!


And, this one for the hottest lighting technician ever,
~   thank you, mr. simple  ~
we love our chimney covered in red lights so Santa doesn't miss our house! 



Don't miss the other bloggers creative ideas over at
you're sure to find something that inspires!

Breathtaking! How perfect that it snowed for the pictures though? I would love coming home to that each night. And hats off to Mr. Simple on the chimney :) I believe I purchased those exact same ornaments at the Dollar Tree yesterday, and I'll be bringing the extras home to spruce up garland and wreaths since there are no room for those in the apartment!
