Christmas Home Tour

Welcome to our home! Grab a cup of hot cocoa and check out our Christmas décor! I’m linking up with Kelly’s Korner Christmas Tour of Homes. Go check it out, lots of beautiful homes to tour!
This is the view from our kitchen into our living room. There is nothing more I love than  our home decorated for Christmas, the lights low, and the tree glowing!

A few years ago I purchased these giant bulbs to hang in our bay window! I hope to find some more on after Christmas sales to add next year!

I think this is my FAVORITE part of our Christmas decorations. I have saved up Christmas money & gift cards over 2-3 years to purchase this shelf. We don’t a fire place and I wanted something that would create a “mantel” look and also have a place to hang our stockings. It was so fun to hang our stockings this year and have the perfect place for them! Love the bright red & green! I found a free printable on Pinterest, added some red/white stripe paper, and viola had {almost} free Christmas art!

Across the living room I have a few black {ikea} shelves where I have some DIY Christmas decorations and few other favorites! The JOY is one of my most favorites, I found it at a craft show quite a few years ago. Isn’t that what this season is all about Joy in the birth of our Savior!

The back wall of our living room is our family gallery wall where we have the kids’ pictures. I decided to hang our Merry Christmas banner over the “B” in the middle this year, rather than the front door. And OF COURSE, the nativity! I love this set. I collected the pieces over the first few years of our marriage and I love it! On the right is a small snowman display I have along with a deco mesh wreath I made last weekend! Both Adelyn & Avery LOVE playing with the little people nativity set and Santa train underneath!

And our tree! I did more bright, fun red & green this year! The past few years I’ve done red & zebra. I left the black & white in there, but added more green. I love it and can’t wait to add to it over the years!

For the 3rd year we have a sweet little pink tree in Adelyn’s room. She even helped decorate it this year. She’s so proud of her tree and I will often catch her laying in her room by her tree either reading books or gently playing with her ornaments! Poor Avery doesn’t have his own tree yet. I hope to find one after Christmas and a few ornaments, as well, for next year!

This is something new I did this year. I took a ribbon and secured it behind each cabinet door. Now as we get Christmas cards from our loved ones I’ve been using clothes pins to display them on the ribbon. I love having them right in our view point and I know we will enjoy it throughout the season. In years past I used a wrought iron snowflake type thing to slip them in, but it was PACKED FULL! This is so much better so we can everyone’s card! I have 5 more cabinets in addition to these two, 3 of which are still waiting for cards!
