Christmas Décor - Museum of the Southwest

I chose to decorate the fireplace vignette in a brown & green theme and even brought in furnishings to make it feel like small & cozy living space.

Additionally, I decorated the mantel in one of the tea rooms in a brightly colored cupcake theme.
Due to the historic preservation of the Museum Mansion I was unable to properly secure this colorful fun garland and it ended up shattering all over the floor . . . good thing I snapped a shot with my iPhone before it crashed!
In the end I decorated the mantel sans-garland with brightly wrapped books, cake stands and oversized cupcake ornaments:
