It's time for the annual "show you my Christmas decorations" post.
This is our first Christmas in our home and I was excited to see it all decorated for Christmas. We are quickly approaching our one year anniversary of moving into our home, and I have loved seeing the house through each season. Christmas is by far my favorite season in this home, although I do love summer when the grass and trees are so lush and green. But nothing can beat watching a Christmas move with the hubs, with nothing but the light of the Christmas tree. So sweet.
I don't have a ton of decorations, but I know it's something that will grow throughout the years. I have already been given some great hand-me down Christmas items from my mom and grandma, and those pieces will always be special to me, and I know I will continue to grow my own.
Let's start at the front of the house the front door:
When you walk in, our dining room is to the right:
I got these printables from this blog. I LOVE them and got compliments on them this weekend when we had our friends over.
Walking into the living room you see the tree:
And the tree with the wall piece that my mother-in-law had made to match our tree. She LOVES Christmas decorations so she gets really into it all. I love this piece.
Our fireplace doesn't have a mantle, I have gone back and forth with deciding whether to add a mantle or not. Luke doesn't care either way, so it will be my decision. I was really sad to not have a mantle to decorate for the Chrsitmas season, but I also love the uniqueness of our fireplace and I'm not sure if I want to mess with it. Maybe I will decide before next Christmas.
I got the stocking holder at Kirkland's. A close up of the fireplace:
Another printable that I got at Craftily Ever After and also our Christmas card from last year. I decided to start a tradition of framing our card from the previous year. I like it.
Our nativity scene. I LOVE this. Some friends gave it to us the first Christmas we were married and I cry every year when I take it out of the box. True story.
I love the Willow figurines, and especially love them at Christmas. Each year my grandma gives us a Willow ornament for our tree, with the year on it. I will always treasure these.
A Christmas Scentsy warmer in our living room. It is burning Christmas Cottage. Yum.
A few small details in the kitchen:
These vases (is that what they are called?) travel throughout our house when I am wanting to change up things. I move them around and they feel the void of buying something new. This year I put these colored mini ornaments in them, I love the way they turned out:
Santa on the kitchen table:
He is pretty and glittery:
A santa cookie jar:
My nativity Scentsy warmer, this is my favorite Christmas warmer, and also a snowman platter, I want to get a Santa platter next year to match the other santas in the kitchen:So that is our home all decorated. I've never been a person that has that decorating "eye" but I'm hoping that I will learn as I continue through life. One can hope right?
Thanks for touring our home!
