Historic Old Northeast Candlelight Tour of Homes

In our town, St. Petersburg, Florida, there is a section of town called Historic Old Northeast. With homes perched along Tampa Bay, and some of the oldest streets in the city, this neighborhood association hosts an annual tour of selected homes decorated for the holidays. It gives neighbors and visitors from within the city and state to tour the insides of some of the oldest and most unique homes the area has to offer.

My in-laws submitted their beautiful home this year, and after they were selected, they asked us for help in getting their home ready for the tour. Since presentation is EVERYTHING, I helped them "stage and style" their home, decorating a little differently than they usually do for Christmas. Check out the photos below for some of the rooms featured on the tour:

The Angel collection above the fire place. Also notice some of the Three Kings collection as well.

The beautiful tree!
The Santa collection
Lots more Three Kings in the Dining Room (they're a little hard to find in the picture!)
After 5 long hours of escorting over 1000 people through their beautifully decorated Christmas house, we were all exhausted! But in the end, it was worth all the hard work these past couple of weeks, as I've never seen it look better!

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
