Very Merry Christmas Home Tour


Whether you're ready or not, Christmas is right around the corner.  I still have some shopping to do, but at least I FINALLY finished decorating our house, just in time for the Very Merry Christmas home tour.  A huge thank you to Carrie from Lovely Etc. for inviting me to share my home alongside some very talented bloggers.

Also, since Christmas is a time for giving, we joined together to offer one lucky reader $500 in Paypal cash!  You can find all the details on the giveaway and links to the rest of the tours at the end of the post.



In years past, I decorated my home for Christmas using blues and greens, which matched our everyday decor.  Now that my home is more neutral, I was able to go a bit overboard with the traditional Christmas colors of red and green.

This is the first year I created a Christmas gallery wall and I have to say, I LOVE it!  

It cost next to nothing to decorate thanks to a free printable, inexpensive flannel, shopping my home and DIY'ing a few projects.

We do get a real tree every year, but it's definitely not show stopping.  My kids do a lot of the decorating and it's full of many vintage ornaments (from my grandparents) as well as a lot of ornaments handmade by my kids.  It's more about the meaning and not as much as the appearance.

I even added a few touches of Christmas to our bathroom.  Please excuse Lena our elf.  She was in the bathroom and we all know you are not allowed to touch the elf :)

Let's move onto the dining room.

I created a super easy centerpiece using a piece of flannel, greenery from our tree and vintage glass ornaments that were once my grandparents.

The kitchen is decorated with my DIY felt trees, a super cheap Christmas tree sign (found at HomeGoods) and a simple wreath that I hung from the window.

Last, but not least is our mudroom.

I added more greenery, a wrapped present and a free chalkboard printable to complete this space.

  16. Well I just have to say that is is absolutely ADORABLE! I needed the inspiration to get to decorating the house more. What's super funny? I have almost every Target item that you have, lol, and it's piled up on my buffet. {Facepalm}
    You've given me the inspiration to get it put up and out! Lol! I'm super happy I found you! I found you on Pinterest, because I saw the little red truck and I've been looking for one FOREVER! Especially for a party that I'm hosting next week!
