And here I thought this house was awesome!
I just happened upon a blog where they linked this place up. Totally rad and its right around the corner.
We just happened to stop by there this week and its so over the top, its not even funny. They start decorating in August each year and open their house every day from Thanksgiving to New Years. There is pretty much a line of cars and people waiting to see this place and the closer you get to Christmas, the more crazy it gets.
They even open it up so you can see the inside! Hundreds of people each night walking through their house. Insane. (Disclaimer: all photos courtesy of the trusty iPhone.)
So you get to see everything up close right? The trees are solid lights. You can't even see the branches, just the light strings. But its impressive. And then they're all hooked up so they're synchronized with the music.
Right away you're treated to decorations and then you enter the foyer.
Here's a note to keep in mind. All the white stuff you see in the village scenes? The mountains and bases? Thats all STYROFOAM sheets. This woman hand carves each piece for each scene (there are 12 scenes in the house). This is just the foyer people.
Then you move into a little living room and you're treated to a fireplace and mantel that are fully decorated. My pictures didn't come out so I can't show you that but check these out:
Then you move on around to the next display - the county faire scene.
Behind the table is a HUGE display. A double tiered display. This is the Michaels village set and she owns. Every. Single. Piece.
We didn't stop because the tradition is hot chocolate at Starbucks.
