2014 Christmas Home Tour
One of my most cherished childhood memories was decking the halls in our home each year. I still get giddy when the lights come out and the trees go up, it literally brings tears to my eyes on some occasions. To me, it is has grown into a beautiful form of worship to my God. I light up my house as a symbol for his light in my life and I sometimes just find myself overwhelmed by his love and mercy throughout the Holiday season more than any other time of year.
My love for all things Christmas has continued to grow as I have and I feel so honored to have the chance to decorate our home now. I am filled with so much joy each time Maddax turns the Christmas tree on and his eyes light up with the tree. So much so, that I have slowly been adding trees and decor to our collection hoping no matter what room I am in for the month of December that I can feel some sort of holiday cheer. So, today I am sharing our holiday home tour with you. Enjoy!
My front door is one of my favorite places to decorate during the season. Guests come and go more frequently and I always want them to feel welcome. We love to get a fresh green wreathe to welcome our guests with. This beauty is from SAMS and it smells amazing each time guests come and go. Simply mist it with a spray water bottle throughout the season and it stays crisp and fresh for all to enjoy. Our dining room is just inside our front door and I love to add bright pops of color in this space. These adorable Christmas trees are available at Walmart for $.50-2 depending on the size. They are so festive and fun. Our centerpiece is a simple glass vase filled with fresh cranberries and water. This keeps them fresh for weeks and gives some height to the center of the table. I added some sweet glittery deer ornaments from Target to each place setting this year. Although they are blank for now, the antlers make great place card holders for holiday dinners or parties. I love coordinating our gift wrap each year. This year I went with basic white paper and added pops of red and green to match our tree. Simple but sweet. This year I purchased some initial ornaments to mark our stockings more clearly. See post from last year to see how these wonderful DIY stockings were made. Maddax room even has a small silver tree. He jumps out of bed asking to turn it on each morning as we count together “One, two, three” and it lights up. I just love it! Perhaps my favorite little corner in our house during the decorating season is our bedroom. This cozy reading nook fits in our bedroom perfectly with the bright pops of blue over timeless black and white. I just love it!
