Lindsay at The White Buffalo Styling Co. put together an awesome Christmas home tour series, and I'm honored to be a part of it.
To those of you who are coming over from The Thriftress and are here for the first time…. a big warm welcome! And, to my loyal readers… I'm always glad to have you here :)
Today I'm going to share some of my Christmas decor with you. I'd show it all, but that would require me to actually be finished with it. Which I'm not. So, I'll take you through the living and dining rooms, and hopefully, you'll come back to see the rest of the decorating as it unfolds.
Come on in...
Traditional red Christmas decorations wouldn't jive with my home's color scheme. Instead, I've used simple touches of greenery with neutral colors and pops of pink. I'm slightly obsessed with pink.
This pretty rattan wreath is the newest addition to my Christmas stash.
Silver and gold… and pink...
My advent wreath...
Pay no attention to the naked bannister. It'll be dressed in garland soon :)...
Let's head into the dining room. You must forgive me if I have gone overboard with pictures of this room. I finally have my pink silk drapes up, and I may have gone a little picture-happy :)
I've been creating this "fruit tree" for the last few years. It looked really great when my room was a Williamsburg colonial-style. It may not look perfect with my new colors, but I'm okay with that. You gotta feel it. It's eclectic! Boogie woogie woogie...
These napkins I found are perfect for the room though. Each napkin is one of the "12 Days of Christmas," and I love that they have a pink and turquoise color combination.
See? I did go overboard with pictures.
I might enjoy outdoor Christmas decor even more than indoor. It's so magical walking or driving at night and seeing all the beautiful lights.
I always look forward to putting candles in the windows. Wish it wouldn't be weird to keep them there all year long. It just seems so home-y to me.
Our backyard is surrounded by fir trees. Some have been around for a long time and are very tall, so we can't light them. Others we planted about 6 years ago, and they're getting to the point where my poor husband can't reach the tops with a ladder anymore. But, he did a pretty good job...
I told him we'd have to rent a cherry picker next year, because looking out at those trees is one of my favorite things.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I still have quite a bit of Christmas decorating to show you. The kids and I are decorating the real Christmas tree this week, and my mantel is awaiting the arrival of one more stocking.
So… please come back and visit again!
