Mixing it up..

December 9th, 2009

When it comes to exterior Christmas decorations, normally Mr. vB and I stick to the basic wreath on the door and white candles in the windows.  This year, however, Mr, vB has decided to mix it up.  This is what I found when I got home from work today.

lights9 boxes of LED rope lights on the counter and 6 more boxes on the floor.

When I asked what exactly we were going to do with all these lights, Mr. vB let me in on his little plan.

Here is the exterior of our house before..


And After 15 boxes of LED lights…


The inspiration came from houses we saw on Monument Ave with similar rope lights spilling over the balconies.

Kinda funky.. kinda fun!

It’s making me rethink my wreath though! I might need to do something a little less traditional than the ornaments that are on my current wreath.  I saw in a magazine yesterday the idea of spray painting a wreath.  Wouldn’t a bright red wreath be cool, or maybe a lime green wreath??

I did also replace my Confederate Jasmine with the cutest little fir tree ever.

I see a busy weekend in my future! Stay Tuned!!

    good thinking, d! pk cannot understand why we have not decorated the outside of our house like other folks around the ‘hood. i’m not sure what part of our rancher those rope lights could spring from, but it’s definitely inspirational!

    Are you trying to give the house down the street a little competition? Think you win hands up!!! Dave, I think that a big red bow on top would just finish it off. Good Job.
