Christmas 2012 Home Decor Tour

Good Morning! Welcome to our home for Christmas. This weekend we are hosting a Christmas party for my husband's job team so I've been busy cleaning and preparing. I thought you'd like to take a look inside at this year's holiday home decor! 

My parents have handed down and gifted quite a few beautiful Christmas pieces, and ornaments throughout the years so this year I was happy to have enough space to display it all. My mom and Grammy have always had beautiful taste in holiday decor and have for sure inspired and influenced my style. My goal is to combine higher end pieces from them, handmade items by me and inexpensive dollar store, thrift, and discount store items to make it all come together.

I had fun decorating the banisters with both garland and wreaths this year.....

I was handed down these Pottery Barn reindeer from my sweet Grammy and I'm in love with them! 
I was also gifted this this beautiful wood painted Santa from my parents. He's about 2 feet tall and 
in our family room.

Can you believe I found these cute Christmas Stamp pilows at Ross for $7.99? Yep I said Ross! 

So we had drama with our pre-lit tree this year. Two rows of lights went out and after two days of messing with it and even buying one of those Christmas light evaluating tools, we gave up and just threw more stands of lights on it. If you look super close you can see the non lit lights...grrr. Oh well.

This year I added aqua to the cream and white tree.

I love this sheet music ribbon that says NOEL.
Lets highlight a few of my fav ornaments. These little ballet shoes remind me of my tiny dancer..$3 from Home Goods.
Oh when I saw this little guy at Target this year I couldn't resist!
Last year I made a bunch of Mod Podge Ornaments with vintage map paper...

 Many of my ornaments are from the dollar store like all these...

 Do you love this Christmas Tree skirt from Home Goods? We needed to update our old one, and I love it!

Marshall's had this beautiful vintage sheet music and vintage post card wrapping paper. I had looked everywhere for wrapping paper like this so I was jumping for joy in the store! (I know weird  right.) It's just paper, but this detail makes me happy!
I made some little bird tags too.

The mantel this year turned out fun. 

Here is the post with all the details on how to make those $1 Stockings!

This is how I am displaying Christmas cards this year. (More on that later).
This door handle santa is fun because he has bells. My kids love it!

My downstairs bathroom has some holiday cheer!
I hung my pallet tree in there.

And in case you haven't seen some of my previous posts, here is my fun whimsy dining table.

And my front entrance....

Thank you so much for coming by my home!
I wish you all the joy & peace this season can bring.

Happy Holidays...

What a wonderful charming, enchanting home you have created. I'm sure your children's eyes light up every night! Well done. And I know what you mean about the prelit trees. I spent two days last year cutting all the old dead wires and bulbs off of our tree. We have gone back to putting our own strings of lights on and it's pretty easy. Much easier than trying to figure out which bulbs are out and replacing them... Merry Christmas to you and your family!
