Christmas Prep, and Holiday Photo Cards on Iomoi

It's that time.  Though I haven't even completed my annual Halloween Reeces Peanut Butter Cup binge, I'm already looking ahead to Christmas.   This year my home, along with three others in my neighborhood, will be appearing on a Holiday house tour to benefit the Ginn Playground Restoration Project.  To start our preparations, I took the other home owners to Jacobson's in Boston, a to-the-trade floral supplier that has been bleeding Christmas for several weeks already:

The good 'ole upside down Christmas tree.  Has anyone actually seen one of these in someone's home?!

Ribbon anyone?

One homeowner is doing a life-sized gingerbread house theme, and we found some perfect props:

I'm decorating a tree in all silver in the dining room, and all gold in the living room:

And of course, along with Christmas decorating prep comes my love-hate relationship with holiday photo cards, when my three children conspire annually to make sure they don't all appear smiling in the same photograph.  For the first year, one of my favorite companies, Iomoi, is offering stunning (if not very "Christmasy") photo cards.  Check them out!
