Getting Ready for Christmas - Decoration Ideas

 
 
I am one of those that gets to this time of the year and is absolutely chomping at the bit to decorate!  I'm really trying to wait until at least next week.  Noah is the one that has to get the boxes down from the attic, and he is very (VERY) opposed to pre-Thanksgiving decorating, so I might just have to. :)
 
Here are my decorations from 2011, 2010, and 2009.  I don't want to change too much from what I've got going...I really love the darker red, darker green, and bronze/gold look.  But I do have a few ideas to add!

For the living room, I like a classic tree.  I think these two are SO pretty...I like the tree full with decorations, but not too over the top.
 
 
 
If Noah would go for it, I would SO do this tree...I love the pink!
 
 
 
I'm thinking about changing up my tree topper this year...I love this one. 
 
 
 
I have a white tree from when I taught that I'm planning on putting in Emma Ramey's room.  I've been buying pink decorations for it as I've seen them.  I have a picture in my head of what I want.  This one is pretty close (except reverse the pink and white, of course).

I am going to keep the same wreaths for the front of my house, but I thought about making a new wreath for the back door.  I can't decide between the ornament one and the deco mesh.

How GORGEOUS is this mantle?

I think this would be a cute idea for the tray I have on my coffee table!
