I am a little late to the game, but today I am sharing a mini holiday home tour. It really is just a sneak peek at some festive spots in our house. Our house is on the market, and we are going to start packing after Christmas, so I didn’t put out the usual amount of holiday decor. We are buying a fixer upper on 7 acres and we are bursting-at-the-seams excited about it! I can’t wait to share that project once we get started. On to our current house…
Below is my favorite area in our house. I love having my morning coffee in this little nook by the big window.
Each year I hang the garland around this window and display the Christmas cards we receive on it. I love fresh garland, but it does tend to get messy. Since we are selling the house, I opted for the cleaner option…faux garland from Michaels. The faux varieties are better than ever, and this one looked fairly real, with the added leaves and pine cones. I added the lime polka dot ribbon to bring in some fun color. Earlier this year, I sprayed painted my galvanized letters a nice bronze color. I love the way these turned out and they look great on the gray wall.
Hubby okayed me bringing in a little pink to our holiday decor this year. I wanted to add a fun touch to this mirror and am happy with the way it turned out.
I use high quality ribbons, like the above linen ribbon from Joann’s. With the wired edge ribbons, you can use them again and again, since they are so easy to reshape.
I love the stockings from Ballard Designs. I have had them for years and they are still available on their website.
I added the polka dot ribbon bows to the tree in green and also navy.
I like to think I am getting better at tackling all of the holiday stuff each year. Although this year, I still haven’t ordered Christmas cards. We may send New Year’s cards or an email blast, that’s to be determined. But I am not worried about it. I really want to focus on spending time with my family and loved ones and the other stuff will fall into place in some fashion.
