I mixed in natural elements and lots of sparkly fun and also some whimsy and traditional... ok... it's kinda all over the place but I promise it somehow all came together!
I will show you some tutorials next week on the JOY sign over my mantel and the ornament wreath which I now have making down to a science! and also my paint stick herringbone tray!
Without further ado... welcome to our home...
(click here for tutorial on our front door wreath)
Our mantel has some faux wood candle stick holders and the plain white candles I just taped some red ribbon around for a pop of color. And the Santa pictures will always be my favorite- especially the ones where the baby was not quite thrilled... he will forgive me some day for having them all displayed every year;)
Our tree decided to be difficult this year and not light up... at all... not even one little light... so that was fun buying a new tree... not really. But here she is all dolled up with my black/white buffalo check ribbon and all of our favorite ornaments! I always keep the soft ones at the bottom so the boys can play with them and move them around~
Our Angel at the top of our tree was a gift from my Mom on our first married Christmas and it is my favorite thing to put up!
Our bookshelves just got little touches of fun to them~
And this little corner of our family room got a touch of the whimsy with this decorative box from HomeGoods and a new pillow that has such a sweet Santa on it...
And last but not least- my new favorite place to decorate- our new hutch
With my favorite little manger scene and some simple ornaments it became very festive. And the cutest star that I found at Target that adds some bright Christmas cheer up top... Target always gets me!
I pray you and yours are having a wonderful holiday season~
