christmas decor home tour

This year I decided to forgo purchasing any new Christmas decorations. By utilizing what I already have I realized I don't really need another thing! I did, however; end up with a few barren spots, of which I filled with Christmas candy, candles and pointsettas. All in all, it looks much like last year -- cozy, comfortable and traditional -- just the way I want my holiday house should look!

My primary decor colors are very nuetral with lots of soft greens and rustic woods. My house transitions great throughout the seasons and compliments Christmas colors perfectly!


This will be our 2nd Christmas in our house and we are so ready for our parents to arrive to celebrate!

* I feel compelled to add that my "tree skirt" is actually a twin sized sheet from a set I found on sale and bought for this very purpose last winter
* Every Christmas item on my kitchen ladder is a hand-me-down from mil (Bry's fav pieces from childhood) and aunt... Love them all!
* I need a nativity so badly, but am waiting until after Christmas sales. I'm cheap :)


  1. Everything looks so cute!

  2. So pretty!! Love the dog outside :)

  3. you should check hobby lobby for a Christmas nativity, we got one right before thanksgiving when they are doing one of their 50% off all holiday d├ęcor, and scored a gorgeous woodcarved looking set for $35! And your hob lob in charlotte is much nicer then mine in ole lil' Everytime I visit, I hit that place up!

  4. WOW! This looks amazing! I so wish I had more space to completely redo my house with Christmas. I have NO WHERE to sit things, so I'm just stuck with a tree only. It's sad. So yours looks GREAT. And I'm jealous!
