Holiday Open House Party- Week 2, Living Room Decor

Welcome to Week 2 of the Holiday Open House Party!

holiday open house button

Show us your Living Room Decor!
You can also show us any miscellaneous rooms your decorated for the holidays such as a bathroom, bonus room, your kid's rooms.

Also, if you have didn't have a chance to link up your Kitchen and Dining Rooms last week, go ahead and add those as well!

Can't wait to see all of your decor.

Here is my Living Room... FINALLY finished!

Here is our tree during the day. I wrapped it with two different sparkly silver ribbons. This is actually something not done. I still need to make something for it... I'll get there!

Our tree at night.

Such a pretty glow.

Here is my new snowflake hanging over the mirror near our front door.
Tutorial on how to make this tomorrow.

Shot of the mirror and my little table.

I bought this last year at Micheal's. It holds all the Christmas cards we get in the mail.

This shelf unit sits next to our front door.

Glittery candle, snowman that was a gift from my grandparents a few years ago, and a little Christmas tree I bought at Target last year are on the top shelf.

Second shelf: A little stuffed Moose and Snowman- up high so Oscar doesn't get them.

Third shelf- Santa and my Kissing Angels that used to be my Great Aunts.

Bottom shelf- Snowman shelf. I got the Snowman last year at, I believe, Pier 1, and the framed snowman was a Christmas card I received years ago.

Glittery Noel sign under the tv.

Angel playing the harp in the forest sit on our entertainment center. The trees I bought last year from Micheal's and the Angel was a wedding gift.

Silver glittery Reindeer on the other side of the entertainment center.

I bought this garland this year at Micheal's. I added the ribbon to the corners and then propped the wire star up in the center.

We just bought this wire star the Sunday after Thanksgiving at Tickled Pink for .88 cents.

My only Nativity set. It is super little but perfect for an end table.

We don't have a fireplace so I decorated the shutters with our stockings and some garland.
I ordered new stockings for Travis and I and unfortunately they haven't come in yet so I just hung up our old ones for now and of course, Oscar and Patton have their own stockings too.

I added some snowflake and red ornaments to the garland to dress it up.

I hung a burlap and ribbon medallion wreath on the center shutter.
Tutorial coming on this as well.

On to other parts of the house:
I have already shared my embroidery hoop ornaments that hang above our bench near our garage door.

Small half bath:
I just sat this gold glittery tree on the floor in the corner of our small half bath.

And then on a shelf in the bathroom, I put this little snowman and a candle with berries surrounding it.

That's it for me!

I'll be linking up to some of these parties.
Also, linking up to Linda's Open House at Coastal Charm.

Next week is Show of your Tree(s) week!
Can't wait to see those as well!
