For the past month I have read blog after blog filled these amazing Christmas decorations- trees in every room, a wreath on every mirror and window, even bathrooms with more holiday decor than my entire house. I managed to get one room decorated- the living room. Maybe one year I'll have cute little three foot trees on every dresser but this was not that year!
I'm not a big fan of tchotchke-type decorations (and yes, I had to google that word. I thought it was spelled chochkey.) in my own house- I really like greenery and even tried to use a little red this year which is completely outside of my comfort zone.
I switched out the faux-garland on the stairs for pinecone garland. I love it! Todd jokes that the living room is 15 shades of cream and tan so you know, I'm just trying to throw him off by using a crazy color like brown! I can be pretty daring at times!
I don't see my love for burlap fading anytime soon. I used these same bows last year.
See! Red! Crazy, I know! I still love using craft paper for wrapping gifts. It's just so simple allows you to use whatever fun ribbon you want- I stocked up on ribbon at Michaels when it was 70% off.
I got these two boxwood wreaths at Lowes a few months ago. I don't know that I'll ever take them down! I used them for Thanksgiving and added the "Merry Christmas" the day after. See my antlers? I really love all small mounted antlers that I've seen on Pinterest. These are from Todd's barn- I bought the plaques from Joann's, stained them and then attached the antlers.
My paperwhites started blooming a week or two ago. Love them!
And the dining room got a cotton boll wreath and a pink poinsettia.
We also have another small tree in the kitchen. It wasn't supposed to be this goofy little 6ft artificial tree but apparently there was a tree shortage this year and we didn't have any options.
We collect Christmas ornaments everywhere we travel so I wanted to keep those all together on their own tree. I do love the tree in a basket but next year this will definitely be switched out for a real tree.
And that's it! Thanks for stopping by!
