I am delighted to bring you this year’s Garden House Christmas tour and video! I had so much fun decorating and I can’t wait for you to take the tour! Let’s Go!
Most years when I sit down and start thinking about decorating themes for Christmas, it’s usually around the end of July, beginning of August. I’ve always planned ahead my whole life, and it’s worked for me. I don’t know if one could chalk that up for bring organized, or just way excited. I see no harm in either, and though I may be a little of both, decorating for Christmas brings some of my most favorite thoughts. Whenever I’m stressed, I try to switch gears to Christmas decorating. Nine times out of ten, it does the trick.
For this year’s theme, I started planning while I was deep in last year’s decorating of the garden house, which I am honored to say was featured in the Holiday issue of American Farmhouse Style Magazine! I was surrounded by silver and gold, when I went to grab something and tipped over a copper vase filled with pheasant feathers. The feathers went flying, scattered everywhere, and while I was picking them up, I was admiring the sheer beauty of each feather; the length, the whimsy. And then when I had a handful of pheasant feathers, I took anther look and thought to myself…
“These would make a beautiful Christmas tree topper!”
And that’s how this year’s Garden House Christmas theme was inspired.
My Garden House Christmas tour is in collaboration with King of Christmas. This gorgeous 7.5′ Frazer Fur that is pre lit with hundreds of warm LED bulbs is the most beautiful faux Christmas tree I’ve ever seen. The lighted garland on the bar cart, along with the two smaller trees and lighted wreath also decorate the garden house with high quality style!

I started collecting pheasant feathers a couple years ago. Caroline had a stressful day at school, so I told her to grab her camera and I’d take her somewhere to shoot some photos. I had no idea where I was going to take her, until I had to stop the car short of hitting a pheasant. They’re gorgeous birds with bright green bodies and long, striped tale feathers – the kind that make for really pretty home decor. We pulled over to a field, Caroline started shooting photos, and I started collecting feathers.
Lots of feathers.
So it’s these gorgeous offerings of a pheasant’s tale that is the true inspiration behind this year’s Garden House Christmas theme.
Nature meets bling. Dress up those feathers with glittery gold magnolia pods and gold ornaments along with loops of red ribbon cascading down the tree. Pheasant feathers fanned out for the tree topper, then scattered about on the tree from top to bottom. All together, true elegance.
I carried the feathers throughout the garden house, placing them in the garland, small topiary trees and the wreath over the door as well.
