Welcome to day 1 of the holiday house walk! I am so excited to share an entire week of Christmas decorating with you!
This is the fourth year and every year it just gets better and better, with even more amazing homes. And,we have a few surprise homes slotted in too!
And make sure you come back next Monday to link up your holiday decorating for a chance to be in next year’s house walk! We ended up with three homes off of last year’s link party!
First,I am happy to welcome you to my home!
We’ll go into the living room first.
I was so happy to finally be able to get my Grandmother’s buffet back to our house. I had to to deck it out in full holiday-ness, so this year, I decked it! I draped a big old garland over the clock, and I adore how it looks. I’ve always wanted to do that!
I used some flocked branches I had picked up at the Hob Lob, and paired it with all of the mercury glass I’ve bought over time from thrifting.
I love using natural looking decor, even if it is faux. I found out a few years ago I’m allergic to pine, so the closest I’ll get from now on is a few scented candles.
I also love how it looks at night with the tree lit and the lamps on. It looks so pretty!
I was also excited because for the first time, I got my own tree to decorate(The kids are getting the downstairs tree.)! This is the tree I received last year from Balsam Hill.
At first I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but then I found these really cool wood tassel ornaments and based it off of that!
It just has beautiful glow with all the sliver and sparkles when the white lights are on.
And this year the nativity was front and center on the coffee table.
I kept the kitchen pretty neutral with pops of color and natural elements like fruit. It gets a lot of heavy use so I can’t put too much up by way of decorating.
The fruit is so pretty on their own, they don’t need anything extra. I put them in vintage trophy bowls.
I played with the window by adding two different sized string of mercury glass and a fun window sill vignette.
It’s something pretty to look at while I do the dishes. I put them in a “forest” by adding 3 little trees from Trader Joe’s. I love their little trees.
I changed up the dining area.The faux mantel that used to be there is now in the family room.
For my table setting,I used some pretty dishtowels from Homegoods as place mats, and layered mismatched plates.
The doors that the boxwood wreath is hanging on are old armoire doors from a computer cabinet that I painted and distressed.I love how they look on that wall.
The centerpiece is two mini-poinsettia’s with gold beads on a mirror. Simple, easy and pretty.
My downstairs is where I have some color. I put snowball pom poms on the tree for the walk, but I promised the kids they can go to town on it after today.:) Isn’t this tree from Balsam Hill perfect for this small space? I can’t wait to share more details about it with you next week!
And yes, those are fake logs in my “fireplace”. They were clearing them out of Home Depot last year in February for $11! How could I not?!
I added a garland and a wreath from Target(from end of season last year.) It’s a super cozy space.
I love that map on top so I hung a wreath over it.We are so happy to have our family room back and I love having an extra space to decorate.
