I’ve done a lot of different colors for Christmas decor over the years. Green, blue, bronze, and even black. This year I’ve decided to make a return to traditional colors with burgundy and gold Christmas decor.
I’m keeping things pretty simple this year and probably only decorating in our main living room space and our front porch.
We’ve already been hit with a ton of snow here, so it was nice to see the sunshine when I shot these photos!
I have pretty much used the same base ornaments the past few years. A collection of mercury glass, gold and metallic ornaments that were gathered over time.
Then I just add in some different colored ribbons, wrapping paper, and a few throw pillows to switch up my theme.
I used inexpensive velvet ribbon that I ordered online and tied them directly to the branches. I used about 4 rolls for our 9 ft tree.
Of course, I had my furry helpers supervising the process.
June has fit right in here with The Lily Pad Cottage crew – she has napping in the sun down pat thanks to Charlie’s diligent tutelage.
I kept my mantel pretty simple this year too. I only made a few minor changes from my simple fall mantel. Burgundy colored candles added a festive pop of color with my usual garland.
I had ribbons on the mantel as well, but a certain puppy would not stop batting at them. So I settled for the addition of these simple brass bells…hung nice and high up where she can’t get them. Feels like I have a toddler again some days, ha!
Oh and here is the blog debut of the new rug! It is SO soft, it feels perfectly cozy for the cold temps we have been having. I love the subtle pattern and colors as well.
I did my mantel garland like I have the last few years by combining a few different kinds of faux greenery to get a nice full look. I’ll link a few of the garlands I used below, but they may be sold out already!
I’m loving these cozy velvet pillow covers that I added to the sofa as well. They are dog fur magnets, but worth the constant lint rolling!
Thanks for taking the tour of our living room all decked out for Christmas. It was so fun to use more traditional colors this year!
