Hello my dear friends. Today I’m sharing my courtyard all decked out for Christmas as part of the Welcome Home Christmas Tour.
I’m not sure if you’d call it a courtyard really, but we honestly don’t have a better name for it so courtyard it is!
We live at the beginning of a busy street, so this space offers a little privacy from the neighbors.
This is a perfect spot to sit in the morning when the weather is nice.
We are also very close to our neighbors as you can see…
That’s the side of their house behind the stone wall. Luckily my neighbors are awesome! (It’s a small price to pay to be a mile from the beach!)
It was drizzling pretty much the whole day I shot these photos, but it really adds to the wintry feel. I know it felt wintry! (See how I made the Faux Fresh Greenery Arrangement here.)
My youngest and I have cupcake dates here. It’s fun to him, and I don’t have to pick cake out of the carpet.
Behind the French doors is our dining room. I shoot a lot of my photos for projects there because of all the light the doors let in. You can see a table behind them…it holds my Christmas Village.
This is the DIY Christmas Twig Wreath I made last year. I just added a fresh bow and it’s good as new!
Love this little woodland Santa. He looks like he’s carved of wood, but he’s ceramic.
When the sun begins to set and the lights start to twinkle, everything is so cozy…
And that’s our Christmas Courtyard!
Want to know why it’s so special?
This is where my Hubby and I were married!
This is my son escorting me. He was seven, and so excited to be a part of our special ceremony.
We were married the day after Christmas.
It was perfect. 🙂
I already shared my “Two Turtle Doves” Christmas Wreath and mantel…
Next week I’ll share the rest of the inside…
(BAM! See my indoor Christmas Tour here now!)
I love Christmas tours. It’s fun to see how everybody decorates!
