Christmas Home Tour

Today I’m going to take you on a little tour of my home decorated for Christmas and hopefully give you some ideas for decorating your home. 

Holiday Home Tour

I’m busy sewing away trying to get some gifts done before Christmas, because of this I can’t share with you what I’ve been working on yet (don’t want to spoil any surprises). So I thought instead that I’d take you on a little tour of my home decorated for Christmas.

First, it needs to be said that at the moment this is the ONLY clean/tidy room in my house, and it won’t stay this long for more than an hour.   Since it was so tidy and we had a rare sunny day, I thought I’d snap a few photos to share.

Nativity Set Displays

This is one of my favorite nativity sets (I collect them)… I bought it about 5 years ago and add one or two pieces to it a year. I adore the whimsical colors.  We’re past the stage of “little hands” so it can sit on the bookcase behind my sofa.

This year I gathered up a few glitter trees (from Walmart) and a cake stand/cloche and tiny Santa Claus and made a little “vignette”.

I’m thinking next year I’ll add a couple more little glass vignettes like this.

Christmas Fireplace Mantle Decorations

Ever since the TV ended up above the fireplace (not my choice) I’ve struggled with decorating it for holidays.  This year I went with some garlands and pops of red.

I had to add the little red cardinal birds after our team won the NCAA championship this year *wink*

I tried the tree in the corner of the room this year, mostly because I was sick of rearranging the furniture around it.  I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not, but now I’ve decided that I do.

Wreaths on the door to the office.

That’s it! I normally decorate more of the house, but to be honest just wasn’t in the “mood” to do it this year.  Just pretty much the one room. I’m in a bit of a Holiday funk, which I’m guessing is related to my oldest being away from home, and two littles that don’t believe in Santa anymore 🙁

Would you believe that we had to MAKE them decorate the tree? It will be interesting to see how our family traditions change over the next few years with the kids all getting older.

    1. Hi Andrea! I get asked that all the time, unfortunately it was already that color when we moved in, so I have no idea!

  1. Your home is beautiful, I love your decorations. I am with you about the tv on the mantel, I have the same problem. But I think I will use your ideas next year for my mantel. Thanks.
    Merry Christmas!!!

  2. Gorgeous home! Several of your accessories I saw are some of the same ones I have in my house :). And the TV/mantle problem is shared by me as well :). Thanks for sharing.

  3. Your home is gorgeous. I’d love to know the brand of the whimsical nativity set. I love it too. I still have three little people who believe in Santa so things are very fun and magical here. I can imagine things will change over the years, and that will be hard.

    Merry Christmas!
