Today I’m participating in a virtual Christmas home tour hosted by Marty from A Stroll Thru Life! If you’re visiting from the previous stop at Jennifer’s home (Dimples & Tangles), welcome! I just love Jennifer’s fun, colorful holiday style!
What’s not to love about going on a Christmas home tour without having to get off the couch………or even get dressed! Whether you’re popping in during coffee or wine time, I’m glad you’re here! Grab another cup or glass and come on in!
Welcome to my holiday home!
My Christmas decorating mantra is “keep it simple”. I like sprinkling a little holiday spirit throughout my home utilizing fresh, natural elements. I’m all about creating a festive look in my home that doesn’t feel like a tremendous task to dismantle when the holidays are over. Everyone in my family likes to help decorate, but volunteers are scarce when the shindig is over. 😉
I fell hard for the mini boxwood wreaths at Target this year. How sweet are they?!
I’m also a big fan of pink poinsettias.
Open Kitchen & Dining Room
I didn’t do much in the kitchen and dining room, just popped in a mini-poinsettia and mini-boxwood. Apparently I’m having a moment with miniatures.
I love hanging a wreath on a mirror.
How fun are those little stir sticks I picked up in the dollar spot at Target?!
Moving on to the living room…….
I used a mix of fresh and faux greenery on the mantel. Since I do a faux Christmas tree I like to bring in fresh evergreen garland for that signature Christmas fragrance.
You can check out more photos and details of my blush and red, white Christmas tree here.
White Beauty is donning some faux fur pom poms for the season.
When in doubt, put a wreath on it right? I can never pass up the fresh boxwoods at Trader Joe’s.
While the living room tree sports a theme, the family room tree holds all of our keepsake and handmade treasures. Having two trees in the house this year just adds to the magic. This is our second Christmas in this home. Since we had just barely finished unpacking before the holidays hit last year, this Christmas feels really special.
Thanks so much for checking out my holiday home! Be sure to stop by Chelsea’s (Making Home Base) tomorrow for a continuation of this virtual Christmas home tour! She has such great style! I can’t wait to see more of her Christmas decor!
