Christmas Home Tour 2013

Happy Monday Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful relaxing weekend. Patrick and I spent our weekend at a conference in the Dells.  He was nominated for an award for being a young achieving farmer.  One of the many reason I love him so much is because he is such a dedicated and driven person. He is always thinking and dreaming, which is something I really admire him for.  We had a great time and it was nice to have a little mini getaway before all the stress, hustle and bustle that the holidays sometimes bring.

Today I’m here to share a little tour of our home decorated for the holidays.  There are so many home tours being given around the blogsphere and I love it every year because there is just so much inspiration and there are so many talented people. Well, I will stop talking and let you take a look around.  Enjoy!

One of the many perks to marrying a farmer is that he brings me random finds from the barns or old houses they buy. He recently found me this antique picnic basket, so I thought it would be cute to add some birch logs and lights to it. Its super cute at night when its glowing, it adds the perfect amount of  ambiance to the entryway.

No Christmas season would be complete without some mistletoe.  I strategically placed it by the front door so all guest can be greeted properly.

I bought this antique sled at a show this fall and thought it would look perfect on our dining table.  I added a few ornaments to the dough bough along with some red beads and its totally festive! I could leave this up all winter long.  Which for us is usually until April!

Last year I came up with this super simple display for Christmas cards. So far we have only received one, but I’m sure more are coming.  Its basically a piece of ribbon that I hang on the cabinet with some 3M hooks and clothespin the cards to it. Super simple!  And again I had to change up my chalkboard wall.

I brought in some natural greenery from the bushes outside and stuck it in some old milk glasses. I love free decor! piesafe_3

Here is a great bokeh shot of our tree. I plan to have a whole post about our tree because I’m pretty much obsessed with it.

  1. Such cute decor! My favorite are is glowing basket of logs and the sleigh as a centerpiece on your table is too perfect… What a great unique way to display it!

    1. Thanks, Jodie. I thought it was a cute way to change it up a bit, instead of just leaning it up against the wall 🙂 Happy holidays to you and your sis!

  2. The house is absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kudos on the sleigh, and the lighted basket. The best part about your house is that it is filled with love! Merry Christmas Coco and Patrick!
