Here's a glimpse at the stairwells and a few of the trees. I promise to share more once I get the entire rooms complete!
Garland and lights are on our main stairs with berries. Our celebration season seems to get longer and longer each year and several years ago I caved and decided to use faux greenery to help supplement my decorating. It allows me to have Christmas decorations from Thanksgiving through New Year's without worrying about wilting and crackling needles.
On the other hand, nothing beats the real stuff so as it gets closer to our Christmas party and out-of-town guests arriving, I try to stick in branches of real greenery. Mmmmm, love the smell of fresh greenery!

In the sun room, it's more whimsical with colored balls and glitz and glam. Completely over the top but I have fun with it. View other photos of the sun room here.
The living room has the tree with all of our "meaningful family ornaments." Whenever we visit a vacation spot or take a family trip, we buy an ornament to remind us of our travels. View last year's family room at Christmas here. View the family in it's usual state of décor, here.
I've tried to get a jump start on the wrapping.
And I've put garland up the back staircase from the mudroom to the upstairs. Love the pop of berries against the Meg Braff green wallcovering!

I still have plenty of work left to do. I will use fresh greenery on the fireplace mantles and consoles. I also add it in key locations (e.g. dining room) with a centerpiece. View the dining room with last year's Christmas tablescape, here.
I'll continue to share my progress and take you on the Vivid Hue Christmas Home Tour.
How are you coming with your holiday decorations? Do you have a themed tree? Do you use fresh greenery? Do you use gold flatware when you decorate your holiday table? Are you hosting this year!?
