Home for the Holidays: a very merry patio.

By
Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

As part of the team at Thompson Company, REALTORS®, I am, of course, not eligible to enter to win our 2019 Holiday Decorating Contest: Home for the Holidays, but I can share a picture or two.

Since I arrived home for the Holidays a few days ago and have enjoyed quality moments with my closest family doing all the fun stuff that makes this time of the year the most wonderful, it's only fitting I show off my mom's festive spirit and creativity. 

My mom loves to garden and decorate (proof, the apple does indeed not fall far from the tree), and every year - among other things - she creates a very merry patio. There are berries and pinecones, candles and string lights, baskets and bowls, bows and ribbon, elves and snowmen. 

I am not a friend of giant inflatables, but always stop to admire tastefully decorated and warmly glowing exteriors. My mom's nailed it, don't you think?! Our home for the holidays is peaceful, cozy, beautiful, and festive - just the way I love it. 

Home for the Holidays Decorating Contest: a very merry patio

I would definitely love to hang out on that patio and enjoy a cup of cocoa and conversation.

I have so many wonderful memories spending time with family and friends on this very patio... it's probably one of my favorite places in the world. 

Come on over! We'll get some hot cocoa ready. Not pictured is a lovely firepit off to the right which ups the cozy-factor even more.

We are having a blast hosting this contest Laura! The best part is that we decided to support a local small business each year and sponsor their service/product as a first prize.

Very nice and inviting Andrea Bedard and if Saint Nick is too plump to slide down the chimney this is an excellent alternative for a quick drop off and get away! Jeff
