Maybe the old scene of tumbleweeds and shootouts on Main Street come to mind when you think about Texas. If you live anywhere else, it’s possible that is your image of the folks down South. Today just might change your view of the great state of Texas.
My friend Stacey from Poofing The Pillows put together a Texas blog hop to show you how we do Christmas – Texas style!

My taste of Texas is an easy way to spruce up a fake Christmas wreath. We have such a wide array of gorgeous trees, shrubs and flowers in Texas and I often shop the Texas landscape for inspiration and materials to decorate with. (Like this and this!)
When we got our real tree this year I was sure to keep the lower branches that were removed to make it fit in the stand. You can also always find a pile of extras at the Christmas tree place. They gave me a ton of extras for free. Juniper grows plentiful in Texas so you could use it like I did here.
I randomly stuck real branches in with the fake, wiring them on as I went. It’s much easier to accentuate than starting from scratch!
No Southern scape would be complete without a touch of Magnolia. It always does the trick.
Weather you are surrounded by Mesquite and cactus or Hemlock and Spruce Mother Nature is ALWAYS in style.
What can you get from your neck of the woods to decorate with this Christmas?
Pease be sure to stop by and say hi to these Texas ladies…
