Holiday Open House Party; Week 1

Welcome to Week 1 of my Holiday Open House party! 

 Today is the time to share your house decor. 
You can share your living room, dining room, kitchen, etc. decorations. 

Here are my decorations! 
 I'll start with my entry way. 
I placed my wooden snowflake on my mirror and then put the little metal box on my table.

I love to hang an item in front of a mirror for a little something extra.
And I use this box to collect all the Christmas cards we receive in the mail.

In our front window, I placed our Christmas tree.


Moving to the right of the tree is a curio cabinet. I only decorate the top of it and the top open shelf. 
The two pictures in the frames were actually Christmas cards I received at one time.

Next to the curio cabinet, I hung my Christmas Subway art.

To the left of the tree are my shutters all decked out plus my new console table. 
Since we don't have a fireplace, I always hang our stockings on our shutters and I always love how it looks. 
Add some garland, a wreath, and now some figurines to the table and that area is done.

Here is how I decorated my dining room table.
I saw an idea like this in Pottery Barn a few years ago so this is how I have decorated my table the past few years.
The greenery is an old garland I don't use anymore. Throw in some glittered pine cones and berries and you are good to go! 

I wrapped my banister in a thin garland and some berry garland.

In the family room area, I placed two small trees and decorated them with ornaments Travis and I made.

I placed some figurines on the entertainment center but left it pretty simple.

Up close of items:
A fun silver Reindeer.
Noel glittered metal sign.
And a little snowman with some trees.

On our bar, I just placed this silver Tinsel tree with a little snowman candle holder.

Under the island, I placed this little decorated tree.

And placed another one on top of the island! 

Here is my stove area. 

I placed the Embroidery Hoop Ornaments on the little ledge of the stove hood.

Then I put some items in the window area above my stove.

My cute little salt and pepper shaker.

Then I created the NOEL sign and the 25 sign at a Pinterest party I threw.


Now it is time for you to share your decorations!!
