My Holiday Decor Tour

All of my favorite bloggers are sharing their holiday decorations, and so I figure I will share mine too.  I gave you a sneak peak of my bathroom (thank you for so many sweet messages!!), and now I'm finally ready to share the rest of my seasonal decor as well.  It's my favorite time of year, so I love to have a cozy home with a lot of festive touches throughout.

(I took this photo right before a party, normally we don't have the red bags)


I'll admit, I'm very much so a wreath kinda girl :)  This year I hung all of my wreaths by a brown and white striped ribbon.  Love how it pulls them all together.


This cabinet contains some of my very favorite Christmas decorations like my santa collection that was passed down to me from my grandpa.



And this painting that my 1 year old daughter painted at grandma's house.  LOVE.


I used some of the left over ribbon to wrap up a small stack of books.


And I just got these Kelly Wearstler stockings from Plum Cushion.  Thanks Traci!  Absolutely adore these!!


My husband and I picked up this Santa print by Gaye Sanders Fisher during an art walk downtown a couple of years ago.  


Here are a few more of my holiday touches.


And lastly, in Lilly's room we put Josh's old Christmas tree and ornaments from when he was a little boy.  It plays music while slowly spinning around.  I'm so glad his parents saved it.

 

I hope you enjoyed the look around.  For as much work as one puts into decorating their home for a month or so this time of year, it feels good to get to share it with others.  Happy Holidays my friends :)

Fabulous! Love how different your stockings are, how you hung tied bows on the side of your wreaths, and the ribbon wrapped around the books! Such great ideas, thanks for sharing!

SO PRETTY! Please come decorate our home! I have so many things I want to do for example ornaments in random glass dishes or unique bowls, just haven't had time to do those just yet. You have so many additional ideas that I love. Ribbon around books....love that! Also, that same ribbon hanging your wreaths...again... love. :)

Chassity - very cute. Love all the wreaths! I actually have to say, as an artist, I see Lilly's painting as an abstract version of Santa in his sleigh...do you see it too? I should take pics of my decor as well...I don't have much, just the front room and outside...still working on collecting from Target's clearance each year!

I know this is extremely belated, but I had to take a blog reading hiatus for the past few weeks... and I can't bare to "Mark all as read" because there's just too much 'good stuff' to look through!

I absolutely love your home and and especially the ribbon used to hang the wreaths and 'wrap' the books. Thank you for sharing!
