As for me, I love to decorate right before Thanksgiving. I just enjoy seeing the tree while we have our special Thanksgiving dinner. After Thanksgiving, I change the table setting of our dining room. I wanted to share how we decked the halls this year.
During the holidays, I love to decorate with natural colors. I try and choose neutral and simple decor with green wreaths and garlands to display all year long. I believe it gives a special touch to my home decor.
Our living and dining room get the full Christmas decor. Ever since my kids were little, I had a stocking hung on our chimney for each of them. The fireplace is the focal point of our living room and I decorated it with fresh pine garland from Whole Foods. In addition, I added Magnolia Hearth and Hand lamb’s ear garland and wreath. To finish the decor, I added some white houses stocking holders and white porcelain houses from Target. The stockings are from a few years ago that I purchased at Hobby Lobby and had our names engraved by a local vendor.
Some years, we would actually purchase a fresh, real tree; however, my oldest bought us this Martha Stewart flocked tree from Home Depot a few years ago. I chose very minimal tree decorations that included antique white snowflakes, Magnolia garlands and burlap birds. I topped it off with a star from Marshall’s.
My coffee table is a vintage find from a nice lady named Linda from the Facebook marketplace. She purchased this vintage oak coffee table from a neighbor, as it was from a local library and was made into a beautiful coffee table. It is 100% pure oak and she painted it. I am so in love with it. I decorated it with Hearth and Hand sugared birch candles, wood bead garland, a Pottery Barn ornament and a Decor Steals basket. I placed another lamb’s ear garland to finish the look.
My dining room has touches of red. This table is from Pottery Barn and the chairs are from IKEA. I kept a similar look as I had for our Thanksgiving tables cape; however made a few changes. I decorated it with these napkins from Pier One and made a small wreath from garland purchased at the Target Dollar Spot. I finished the look with a white lantern, fresh pomegranates and sugared birch candles.
The Coffee Bar Cart and cup holder displays Rae Dunn mugs and canisters. I topped it with Magnolia Garland and a few red touches here and there. This also serves as our Hot Cocoa Bar.
Lastly, I decided to add a couple stockings more for Hubby and I in our master bedroom. This is a vintage gas fireplace that belonged to a neighbor. I used the Magnolia Hearth and Hand wreath and some fresh garland from Whole Foods. The stockings are Nicole Miller. Our bed is from an Antique shop here in the Dallas area.
Basically, I keep it the same, minimal Christmas decorations and lots of greenery every year. Simplicity is very elegant and my ultimate preference in decorating.
As always, I want to wish you a blessed Holiday Season. Thank you so much for stopping by.
