It’s that time again! My elves and I have been busy decorating for weeks (ok, so really I have been decorating and my kids have been “helping” and then I rearrange everything when they go to bed at night -he he he), and I’m so ready to share my holiday decor. I’m excited to be part of Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk again this year as there are so many talented bloggers participating, so be sure to visit all the homes and soak up the Christmas decorating ideas!
Special hello to you if you are coming over from French Country Cottage. Courtney’s home is always so gorgeous! Thank you also to Joss and Main for sponsoring this year’s tour, I received some awesome goodies from them for the tour.
Ok, let’s get started. I went with a sort of Scandinavian/Red/White/Cozy/Ski Lodge (phew I know it’s complicated sounding) theme this year, and it was so much fun. I used a lot of cute cardinals, so this little faux tree from Joss and Main fit in perfect in our front entry.
Now that it’s finally December, my kids are excited to use this advent calendar that I found at H&M.
Swing on into the kitchen where I made this cute DIY tea towel art (see the how to here).
My kitchen is right next to our living room, so let’s a take a peek at my mantel, (you can see full details here). I got this gorgeous quilt block sign from Little Bits of Everything Etsy shop and the quilted stockings were a Joss and Main find.
Oh, and there’s my fun tree! I stuck a pair of vintage skis right in the tree this year (I won’t mention how many times I knocked the tree down attempting this…).
I also found these cute skis in the dollar bin at Target, which I customized by painting red stripes down the sides.
More cute cardinals made an appearance in the tree too!
The sunroom became my wrapping station this year, and it was so nice to have room to sprawl out in the sun and pretend it’s not freezing outside. I found this cute ribbon at Joss and Main.
I got a lot of questions on how I hung these wreaths last year, so check out this post for tips!
Of course our dining area got a little Christmas makeover too.
I filled this vintage wooden box with tree clippings, ornaments and felt ball garland for an easy centerpiece.
My Christmas mantel sign from last year is hanging out above my red buffet this year.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the tour. I’ll be posting more details about my tree later this week! The next stop is Jeanne Oliver’s gorgeous home!
