Welcome to my Christmas Decorations Home Tour! If I could bring each of you into my home to have a cup of tea or coffee and a sweet treat, I would. But since that isn’t possible, I’d like to take you on a tour sharing some of my favorite Christmas decorations.
This time of year, all the magazines are brimming with gorgeous displays of perfectly decorated Christmas trees, fireplace mantels and porches providing inspiration and longing simultaneously as we dream of having the same look and feel in our homes. It’s easy to get caught up in all that we want our home to look like, believe me, I’m one of them! I long to have the picture perfect, magazine quality décor, but let’s face it, most people don’t live that way. I don’t have a huge home with a grand staircase, I mean, I don’t even have a fireplace (although, the plan is to build one for our next “big” DIY project, so fingers crossed, I’ll be hanging stockings and sipping coffee by a fire next year)!
While my house lacks a few features I’d love to have, it doesn’t lack love and that’s truly what matters. It’s not about what we don’t have, it’s what we do have. If you fill your life & home with things and people you love, you’ll find happiness. So, as I take you on my Christmas decorations home tour, I hope to bring you a bit of inspiration knowing you can create a beautiful space wherever you are.
Christmas Decorations Home Tour: Kitchen
My kitchen is decorated in white, gold and silver this year, and of course, greenery.
An easy way to add holiday cheer to the kitchen is to add greenery to the cabinet fronts. Add some ribbon and an ornament and you have instant décor.
Everyone needs a coffee and hot cocoa station during the holidays, right?
Add mint chocolate morsels, candy canes, caramel & fudge sauce and flavored sugar to ensure there’s something for everyone’s taste.
I love how this display on my kitchen island came together. The vase is a ceramic piece found in my grandpa’s garage (it was covered in dirt and grime and was headed to the trash heap when I found it!), I added fresh greenery, some red twig dogwood branches from my yard and a paper white bulb along with ornaments to complete the arrangement. I paired the arrangement with an antique scale, a silver stag and a jar full of delicious chocolate covered pretzel rods.
The other side of my kitchen is where my china cabinet and table are, I switched out the farm animal prints that are normally displayed here, adding a few of my many Santa prints.
Christmas Decorations Home Tour: Living Room
My living room and kitchen open to each other so my color pallet is the same here. The space isn’t large enough to place my large Christmas tree here, which we used to do but with the furniture placement, it would be too crowded. I couldn’t fathom not having a tree in here, so I placed a small flocked tree in stacked crates where I displayed one of my most treasured pieces, my nativity scene.
Before I decided to put the nativity scene under the Christmas tree, it was on display on the sofa table where the treats are now displayed. This one was too cute not to share, my Grandpuppy, Dixie had to check out baby Jesus! Probably one of the cutest photo bombs I’ve seen!
Even the windmill gets decorated!
A simple bowl of gold and silver ornaments accented with a pinecone, greenery and a few faux antlers is just right for the coffee table.
I love displaying sweet treats in glass containers in various shapes and sizes. This time of year, I pull out some of my rarely used pieces, like the beautiful cake pedestal full of cookies!
More glitter and white is on display along side my Great Grandma’s antique mirror.
A simple silver vignette on a small table by the front door greets you when you come and go.
Christmas Decorations Home Tour: Family Room
My favorite room to display Christmas decorations is our family room. We are “outdoorsy” people and love a rustic, farmhouse style which is very evident in this space. This is where the traditional Christmas colors abound!
I love everything about this tree. Full of red, green silver and gold, it captures our style perfectly. It’s a little bit sparkly, a little rustic and has a lot of charm!
Did you notice the display of artwork to the left of the tree? Well, that is and has been my favorite display for many years. All of the artwork on this wall was created by my kids when they were in grade school…they are now 23 & 25! So precious!
More artwork placed near the tree with a very fitting scripture verse, “Every good and perfect gift is from above” James 1:17.
Here are a few tight shots showing just how rustic our Christmas decorations are; shotgun shells, pheasant feathers, antlers oh my!
You can never have too many Santa pictures 🙂 (Here’s a trick for ya, this Santa picture was actually a huge gift bag that I cut out and placed in this large frame. You’d never know it wasn’t purchased like this!)
Added touches to the bar, similar to what I did in the kitchen, I hung pine cones from silk ribbon. A little bit rustic, a little bit chic!
Even our bathroom off of our family room is rustic; here I added a red plaid deer print with some twigs and greenery to greet our guests.
A cute display of old Frosty the snowman’s hat and a few jolly little snowmen round out the family room.
And last but not least, the most beautiful photo to share with you is of my Thomas Kincaid family bible which was given to me by my husband years ago, a true treasure as it’s opened to the book of Luke describing the birth of our Savior.
From my family to yours, we wish you a blessed Christmas and a very prosperous New Year!
Thanks for stopping by for a visit, I’m glad you joined me! I hope your holidays are filled with love, family, friends and great times.
Much love to you, until next time,
