Here are some of the many great details from the Schmidt's Holiday gift display:

This tree was fun to decorate. I loved putting giant glittered poinsettias in this Christmas tree along with golden glittered butterflies and glittered pinecones.

The gnome corner. The black bookcases we got in earlier this year really make the gnomes stand out in them.

Full sized Elf workshop in the greenhouse. It took me two weeks to build this. It has been a delight to see all the children of the neighborhood come in and ooh and ahh over this house. One little boy asked very politely if the elves inside would let him in because he appreciated all their work they do.
Close up of the window boxes. We had two perfect plant containers sitting in the store that worked as window boxes. I painted them red and added poinsettias inside.
I also added a real door knob to the house. People keep trying to open it and peek inside!

Light up Christmas presents really added sparkle to the poinsettias
Monday night Oz, Charlotte and I came to the store to take our annual holiday photos. Even though the store doesn't have an official photo shoot day this year, I still encourage people to come in and take some family photos. The greenhouse makes a lovely backdrop for photos, especially around 5pm when the Christmas lights really twinkle.
What a good Christmas puppy!

I hope everyone out there is enjoying December as much as I am. Happy Holidays everyone!
