Christmas Decor Home Tour

I love Christmas.  The lights…the baking…the ornaments…the time spent with family…the traditions.  I love it all.  This is the first Christmas in our new house.  We are still not unpacked.  We still don’t have furniture in some of the rooms.  That all doesn’t matter…I still have my trees up and some decorations around the house.  I did manage to make some crafts to put around the house.  Take a look…

This year we have two trees.  A traditional one in the living room and a beach themed tree in our sunroom. The traditional tree is an artificial tree and is decorated with all of our ornaments that we’ve collected over the years, many of them with special meaning,  I usually get an ornament on all of our vacations and for major life events (engagement, wedding, new home, our pups).  I love reminiscing as we unpack all the decorations and hang them on the tree.

Our beach themed tree in the sunroom is a real tree, complete with a flamingo tree skirt and starfish tree topper.  On it you will find ornaments from some of our beach vacations, surfing santa, and lots of shells and starfish.

I got this lantern at Home Goods and just filled with some fresh greens, pinecones, and red ornaments.

Since we have a new addition to the family, I wanted to get new matching stockings.  I ordered these from PersonalCreations.com.  They had a great cyber Monday sale, so I got 25% off and they arrived very quickly!

I just refinished our coffee table and threw this centerpiece together from things I had around the house and some fresh greens from our yard…so it was totally free…awesome!!

You may remember this dining room centerpiece from Thanksgiving.  I used the same hurricane vase and tree branches from the Gratitude Tree and just replaced the Spanish Moss with cotton balls and decorated the branches with these mini ornaments that I found in CVS.

I love incorporating candy in my holiday decor…it’s super inexpensive, gives a great pop of color, and is a very tasty treat.  I’ve already filled up those apothecary jars for the third time…woops.

I had ordered shelves a few weeks ago and never got around to hanging them.  This past weekend we finally hung them in the dining room and I Chrismafied them.

I used a lot of things I already had in the house.  I made the two wooden signs.  I spray painted the mason jars white and added some fresh evergreens from our yard.

I got this little hand carved angel on a trip to New Mexico.  I love buying from local artists when I can.DSC_0709

I printed this sign and put it in a frame I had in the basement.  I kept with the natural, beachy feel with the starfish.
