Stairway Garland

I have always thought it would be really neat to have a Christmas Garland on my stairway, but alas, I have lived most of my life in one story homes in Houston, Texas. By the way, I have learned that in Colorado Springs, one story homes are called "Ranchers" and they are virtually two story homes because almost every home has a basement and if the basement is finished out, as ours is, it is really a two story home.
Should I leave the Real Estate lessons to my husband????

Anyway, I thought a Christmas garland would be beautiful, but I have already shared that creativity skipped a generation in my family. The good news is that I have a daughter-in-law, Mandy, who is very creative, so she said she would help me. Off we went to Hobby Lobby for their 1/2 price garland, and floral wire. The results of Mandy's endeavor can be seen below.
Actually Mandy had a little help.
Jeremy and I held up the garland while she worked and
Caleb cut one piece of floral wire.

Close up view below.
Isn't it beautiful?
Thank you, Mandy!

It is beautiful! I especially love the pinecones tucked in there.

Will Mandy come and do my stairs? I have not decorated them for the past two years, and they look really bare. Rest of the house looks pretty good though--can't wait to get home and enjoy it, though the scenery outside my window here in Aberdeen is pretty festive too.
