Caroline Manzo's kids are all grown up and she's even become a grandmother now, which we think pretty much gives her free license to go to town on doing as much Christmas decorating at home as she wants and blame it on her granddaughter, Marchesa "Markie" Scalia, who will be 3 years old in February. And Caroline is definitely off and running with those trimmings, even though Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet: The Manzo'd with Children mom recently shared a peek at her holiday decorating in progress on her social media feed.
"Started decking the halls last night #christmas," Caroline wrote in an Instagram post that showed off her cozy Christmas tablescape-in-progress in her living room. To get into the holiday spirit, Caroline added foliage and branches to her chandelier to make it more seasonal, and she also created a wintry centerpiece, comprised of lots of candles of varying heights (some on pedestals, some in glass vases) in addition to flocked pine cones, ornaments, flowers, and holiday ribbons. The decorations look perfect with Caroline's whimsically checkered dining table and chairs.
We agree — it's looking good!
And her work is not done! Caroline managed to get the rest of her Christmas decorations down from way up high, too.
