Christmas House Tour Part One!

Season’s Greetings Friends!  It is shameful how long it has been since I have posted, but today I am here to share our Christmas decor with you!  We will begin our multi-part Christmas house series in the living room which is decked in red, green, and gold.


Our living room is looking a bit sparse right now since my mom is currently working on reupholstering our couches (one at a time).  To make up for our loss of a couch, we added a new 46” television.  Haha!  That’s our Christmas gift to one another this year.



The soon-to-be-history plaid couch is sporting my snowflake pillows and a plaid Christmas afghan.


I even spruced up the ottoman with an arrangement of greenery, ornaments and a candle.


The side table has been moved to a lonely corner but it is decorated festively nonetheless!  My antique wooden toolbox is filled with fresh greenery, pinecones and ornaments.



On the wall between the windows is my new snowflake arrangement that I got from Michael’s.  I love it!


And draped along each window is a tiny pinecone garland made from North Carolina pinecones!  We gathered these from the woods by my mom’s house.  Then I tied each cone with a piece of yarn and then tied those to a long string of brown yarn.  Easy and cute.  I think it might get some glitter next year, haha! :)


Continuing with the rustic meets sparkle theme, the side cabinet is displaying my cute reindeer that I got last year at WorldMarket.  I also finally took time to make myself a set of pinecone trees!   Yay, they are so cute!



And last but not least—the Christmas tree!  This year in addition to my red ribbon I added gold and red sparkly picks and some gold tinsel loops amid the ornaments.  I also got a new tree skirt—not that you could tell under all those presents!!  You’ll be getting a whole other post on the tree at some point!  So stay tuned.


Come back soon for the rest of the tour!  Only 14 days to go!  Merry Christmas!
