2015 Christmas tour (part 1)

Yay, the day is finally here that I get to open my home and share my christmas decor with you! I couldn’t be more excited about the line up of amazing bloggers who are participating! Thank you Jen Migonis for hosting the Warm and Cozy Christmas Tour series, and Wayfair.com for sponsoring it! This is my absolute favorite time of yr, put on your favorite christmas music and come visit for a while!

I enlisted the help of my youngest guy to welcome you to our home, he was eager to help and had many different poses to show me 😉 I’m going to cherish his willingness as long as I can. I know he’ll be “too cool” to help me before I know it.

My oversized planters can be challenging to decorate in the winter months. This yr I opted to have my husband put a piece of plywood on the top so I could put my lanterns on them. I used a pre-lit garland with a little fresh greens for a natural look. I added the packages and poinsettias for extra color.

Lets step inside, I tend to talk alot when I have company over ;), I’ll try to keep the commentary to a minimum so you can enjoy the tour.


I like to add my garland to the bottom of my stairs, it is different than what you typically see, and it frees up the handrail for my boys.

you can see the full tour and details for my entryway [HERE]
Just off the entry way is our home office. I have been working on this space this yr, and I’m happy with how it’s coming along!
I am also excited for this tree to be featured on Wayfair.com today! You can see that post [HERE]. And you can see the full tutorial on how I decorated this tree [HERE]
Moving on to the family room, to save space this yr, I went with a 7.5′ tree. I didn’t want it to be too lost with our vaulted ceilings, so I brought my favorite planter inside (dirt and all) and put the tree in it. I absolutely love how it turned out! My kids absolutely do not love it, they want to know where they are supposed to open their presents.
I ordered these compote bowls from Wayfair.com, I know they’ll be a great addition that I can use throughout the yr! You can find them [HERE] and [HERE]



I love how the lights from the tree reflect in the mirror! Mirror is from Ballard Designs you can find it [HERE]

How exciting must it be to be a kid and wake up and be able to see the tree and all of the presents as you come down the stairs on Christmas morning?

If you follow me on Instagram you may notice all of the red additions. It started with one beautiful poinsettia that was given to me by a guest on Thanksgiving (the one perk of hosting, jk) then it multiplied out of control from there. I fell in love with how the red contrasted with the white cabinets! I’ll be sharing more of my kitchen tomorrow, I am definitely keeping the red for a while, as in I think it’ll be making a bigger appearance next yr (see? I’m already planning on next yrs decor!)
I also want to share with you my bedroom at Christmas time, I haven’t shared that space on my blog before and it’s about to go through an update. I kept it simple, by adding feather trees to the nightstands, fur pillows to the bed, a christmas tree in the corner, and a fur wreath to the chair. I do love my bedroom already, but I’m excited to be getting a new bed in the next few weeks!


I’ve linked a few details of my room below. I always get alot of questions about it on Instagram, so I found similar items I hope it helps with any questions.


I have lots more to share! I didn’t get my basement photographed in time for this post, I also have quite a few areas I haven’t been able to get around to sharing on Instagram so make sure you check in on my upcoming posts!

Heres the line up for the rest of this Blogging tour, you won’t want to miss them! And a big thanks to Wayfair.com for sponsoring this tour!

      Thank you so much my sweet friend! That means so much to me! I worked so hard on my decor this yr and it seems like it took me forever! I haven’t been able to bring myself to even go back and read it, I was up so late writing it I’m sure I won’t be happy with my wording :-/ . Pics are a different story, I know I like those 😉 XOXO

      Thank you so much for having me Jen! I love having a reason to Deck my house, I get so busy with client decor during the Holidays that I’m afraid I would otherwise skip it all together in my own home. Grateful for the opportunity to share!

    Jennifer this is just the most lovely home tour! Your have such a beautiful talent and blessed gift in style! I was wondering how big the mirror was in the entry. That is a great idea to paint it with chalk paint I may have to give it a shot! Thanks so much for sharing! Have a great holiday!
