Welcome to our 2017 Holiday Home Tour Blog Hop!
Can you guys believe we have less than two weeks until Christmas!?
This time of year is always full of beautiful things and in honor of that, I have teamed up with some amazing fellow bloggers. We are inviting you into our homes to share our Christmas decor and hopefully give some inspiration! At the end of the post, I have linked up to everyone’s posts so you can “hop” on over and check out their homes! We hope you can join us and enjoy this blog hop!
I wanted to share with you, all areas of my halls, decked for the holidays. Come on in!
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.
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. 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. The white fur trees are from Lowe’s and candle sticks are from Pier One.
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 bead garlands and burlap birds. I topped it off with a rustic 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 many years ago 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 from Magnolia Hearth and Hand at Target.
I added an old ladder to our living room to display a few Christmas decor as well. My chippy old table is a gift from my sister and I love it dearly. Birch logs are from Curtis Creation. I made a bow from burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
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. This evergreen tree is my favorite purchase from when Magnolia Market first opened a few years ago in the Silos. I finished the look with a white lantern from Pier One, fresh pomegranates and Magnolia sugared birch candles.
Coffee Bar Cart
This bar cart that I decorated is from Target. It has come in very handy. I have made it into a Coffee Bar. Here is a cup holder that I purchased from Amazon and the sign is from Zulily. I purchased this “blessed” tea towel from Etsy. Bar cart holds all the essentials for our coffee all year long.
In front of our bed is a vintage gas fireplace that use to be our neighbors. I placed a shelf that my husband bought me at a vintage market and we painted white. I placed a Magnolia Hearth and Hand lamb ear wreath over this shelf. Fresh garland is from Whole Foosds. I hung a couple of fur white stockings that are by Nicole Miller. Our bed and lamp are vintage finds in a local antique store. The garland is from Magnolia Market. My pitcher and rug are from IKEA and coffee mugs are Rae Dunn.
Youngest Daughter’s Room
Our youngest asked for a tree this year so we bought her own. The Fur garland is from Pier 1. Christmas sign and decorations are from TJ Maxx. My daughter’s wood sign with her name is one I made for her.
Lastly, I wanted to share with you our favorite family Christmas traditions. See our bucket list here: Christmas bucket list . You too can create your own as well.
Two of ours are baking and decorating gingerbread houses with my girls since they were little. I have already done so much baking with my youngest and wanted to share my cookie recipe and pictures of our baking goods.
My canisters below are Rae Dunn (of course!). We have collected serval cookie cutters, some are from Ikea and the houses cookie cutters are new from Magnolia Hearth and Hand. I shared my recipe last year and here it is: Christmas sugar cookies recipe.
Also pictured are my favorite empanadas of cajeta (dulce de leche). They are like turnovers with dulce de leche inside and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon on the outside.
In addition, here is the little gingerbread house village we decorated this year. Several bottled brush trees surround the village. This tree farm was one of my very first purchases from Magnolia Market at the Silos when it first opened.
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.
I love bonding with my family and celebrating the real reason for this Season. There are many traditions my family and I share. I would love to hear your traditions and your Christmas decor style.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate each and every one of you!
Merry Christmas / Feliz Navidad from our family to yours.
