Welcome to my first Christmas Home Tour. As Christmas approaches (and I continue to decorate), I’ll be doing another post featuring more pics of my home decked out for the holidays. I simply LOVE the holidays, and getting the house ready is a huge event for our family. Since this is my first Christmas as a blogger, I’m going to show you a series of pictures from Christmas’ past, as well as some current ones.
This is one of my Christmas tablescapes I did several years ago. I still love the peacock blues on the chair covers.
On the other side of my living room, I like to bring in more of the blue, gold and silver theme. My antique platter display also helps to tie it all together.
This 9 foot Christmas tree was a huge score. I purchased it off Kijiji for $125 about 5 years ago. To my surprise, the seller also included a huge tub of all her decorations, which set the tone for my blue, gold and silver theme.
For this vignette, I used “snowballs” purchased at the dollar store, and cut out the letters J, O, Y from gold scrapbook paper. Just a small dollop of glue secured the letters in place and can be easily removed when I want to use the snowballs for something else.
We can’t forget the front porch… Here is my chalkboard all festive and ready for the holidays.
Here is my tree all lit up at night. Although I’ve done the same tree topper for years, I added some twigs and branches to this one. I love the shadows it casts on the ceiling.
Another Christmas vignette from years past. This one was made with pickle jars and an apothecary jar. The faux snow and miniature trees were purchased at the dollar store.
My rustic fireplace was given a vintage winter sports theme, complete with skis, old skates, a vintage toboggan, and snow shoes.
This winter woodland critter table next to the fireplace was put together for the kids so they also could enjoy a fun and unique tablescape for Christmas dinner.
Rounding out the tour, we’ll end at my Christmas tablescape from last year. I will do a feature post on this tablescape in the coming weeks, so you will get the full scoop then 🙂
Thanks so much for joining me on this tour. See you next time my friends,
