Christmas Home Tour

I finished putting up all my Christmas decorations right after Thanksgiving, although I may still be tweaking things here and there, but I wanted to share it with you today.

I just work my way from room to room like I normally do and show you how I decorated certain spaces. 

I'll begin by our front door.
On top of our small ledge, I placed the Vintage Truck Sign I created with a wooden tree that I bought from Michael's this year. 
I then hung my String Art Decorated Tree from one of the hooks but I am still debating on if this is where it is going to live this holiday season.

 I decorated my mantle pretty much exactly the same as last year since I loved the look so much of it. 
O Holy Night sign hangs above my metal Nativity, with some lighted garland and white and gold wooden trees, then our stockings hangings to finalize the look.

 One on side of our entertainment center, I place this fun wood tree I bought last year and then this cute vintage truck I picked up this year at Target.

On one of our end tables, I have another fun wooden tree along with a small little globe of a light up house. Hiding behind the tree sits the container I stash all our holiday cards in as we get them.

On the bottom shelf of this table, sits our Christmas Painted Horse figurine and some plain wood trees.

Swinging around to our small round end table, I placed this cute little reindeer I found at Hobby Lobby this year. His mama sits on the other side of our entertainment center because both of them together were a little too much here. 

But next to the deer I have this cute little light up globe of two little deer next to some trees. My girls love this little thing! 

Our tree sits in its usual spot and I think I pretty much decorated it close to the same as last year. Some small changes are that I changed out the tree skirt to a white/silver skirt and I now have a metal tree ring covering the bottom of the tree instead of the wood one Travis made last year. It ended up getting messed up so he took it apart and made another project for me, that I have yet to finish and share. 
I always decorate this tree with my favorite glass ornaments and special ornaments. I always think, "this year I will do something different" and then I don't. lol

I had to change all the lights on the tree last year to LED lights and this thing shines nice and bright at night! 

Entering our dining room, I placed this Nativity set on my stacked crates.
My parents made this in 1977 for my grandparents and I just got it this year. It is large so I had to figure out where to put it and this ended up working really well. 

I placed a few pillows and a blanket on our bay window seat and as we read our Christmas books they get placed here. 

Garland on the bay window itself, green and then the awesome glass garland I bought for Miss S's birthday party. 

I wrapped it with the green garland for a little color over here but I realized I keep forgetting to hang something up in front of the window. We'll see if I remember to ever do it! lol

I did change up my table centerpiece this year though! 
I had this table runner from the dollar spot at Target, and then placed this stacked wooden tray set on the table full of little houses and bottle brushes.
Then two candles to round out the look.

 I love how this turned out and it was totally a happy accident! 
I had the shelf sitting on the table from it sitting out with fall decor on it and when I pulled out all the houses, which I totally forgot I bought on clearance last year, I had no idea what I was going to do with them. Miss P placed a few on the shelf playing and then I moved the rest of them there to really just get them out of the way and the more I looked at it, the more I loved it! 
So I rearranged it and added a few things and boom- centerpiece! 

Buffet is all colorful with my large JOY letters, fun reindeer and a small silver tinsel tree. 

Entering the mudroom I have our two mini trees full of homemade ornaments! 
We always have a family craft night before Christmas where we make new ornaments and these are the trees they go on! They are getting a little full though so some may get moved to the big tree soon! 

I had to change the lights to LED this year and they are fun and bright in the mudroom this year.

I hung my small 25 sign and my Reindeer Name Art on the wall above our chore charts.

Up on one of the cabinets in the mudroom I have a mini tree and a ceramic house that fit really well up there.

Our advent calendar is in the kitchen. I picked this up at Target a few years ago and we use it along with doing a Christmas book advent. 

On our little bar next to our fish tank, I have my one and only Santa figurine with a mini tree.
The fish need to feel festive too! 

On the peninsula, I have three little yarn trees I made years ago. I put these here because the girls climb up on the counters and get into the cabinet near them so I didn't want to put anything breakable here. 

And lastly, in my kitchen window above our sink, I placed my ceramic kissing angels. I love these guys and love looking at them while I do dishes. 


And that is about it. There are a few extra things here and there like the girls having trees in their own rooms but that is how I decorated the main living areas of our house this year.

Are you done decorating or are you still putting the finishing touches on things?
