Hello lovelies! Can you believe its almost Christmas? Like how fast did this season go? I am finally here today to share a little Christmas home tour with you. I’m especially excited this year because it is officially my first time hosting a family holiday at our house. My parents are in the middle of building a new house and are living in a small apartment, so their place was not an option for our large family gathering. I happily volunteered to host it at our house and I’m so excited, a bit stressed, but still excited to have everyone over. I wanted to share with you all a little bit of how I decorated this year. Grab a cup of coffee or your favorite drink and enjoy!
We got a fake tree this year, that I actually bought from my sister. I like how big and full it is, but I definitely missed having a real tree. Next year I think I’m going to attempt to flock it myself because I just love the look of flocked trees, but not the price. My favorite thing on my tree is the JOY banner that I made a few years ago. I try to incorporate it somewhere every year and this year it fit nicely on our tree.
I made this skinny “fresh cut trees” sign by hand the other day. It’s just a skinny scrap board that I painted white with a green border and then I stenciled the letters with some stencils that I had. I hand drew the trees on each side too. I think it turned out pretty cute, for being a quick handmade project. I added some strands of berry to my natural wreath to dress it up a little bit.
You can check out this post to see my shelves all decked out for Christmas but there is a little peak here too. I just added some white and red garland to the mantle along with the stockings. I really want to have all matching stockings but I’m going to wait until after Christmas to hopefully find a good sale.
So I didn’t get too crazy this year. Just a few touches here and there in the living room and dining room, which are our main living spaces. I have been really attracted to white and gold and red this year as you can see. I repurposed a lot of my same decor because it can get pretty expensive buying new stuff each year. I try to go right after Christmas when a lot of stores discount their stuff way down.
Well thats a small little update I have for you today. I’m off to planning for the busy weekend ahead!
