It’s that time again. Can you believe that this is our Third Christmas Home Tour? The years are flying by so quickly and the kids are getting bigger and bigger, and by default, I am not getting any younger either. But, the one thing that remains the same is my Love for this Time of The Year. It’s not Christmas unless you are throwing a little red and green around. And, as far as the little ones are concerned the Kid’s Tree and everything surrounding it should be flocked in traditional hues. And, I am ok with that. Because as much as I literally live for the Real Tree in my formal living room, my heart strings are permanently attached to the Kid’s Tree. It is literally stock full of memories of Christmas past. The hallway leading into the Family Room and the Kid’s Tree and the Mantel are always very conventional.
This year I introduced gold as our new accent color for the Formal Living and Dining Room, while holding on to most of the color scheme from last year. Since, I decorated for Fall this year, when Christmas time came my creative brain was pretty fried. I had no idea in what direction I wanted to go this year. However, I really loved how these two rooms turned out this year. We purchased the large Gold bowl on the table from Home Goods and the pears and apples we got from their as well. The purple napkins we scored last year from Bed Bath and Beyond and used them again this year. We also scored the table mats from Home Goods and believe it or not the chargers came from the Dollar Store. As you can see, the Gold literally carries through all the way to this years tree.
This Year’s Christmas Tour was delayed, obviously. But, things got so busy leading up to Christmas that there honestly wasn’t enough time to post. This years Tour will be more pictures than words. Welcome to our Little Piece of Heaven — Enjoy!!
Decorating brings me much joy, but decorating for the holidays brings me enjoyment on another level. This time of year is still wrapped in magic for me, even now. Watching the excitement on my children’s faces as the whole house comes together, and knowing that we are creating life long memories leaves me totally blissful!! I believe that my love for decorating and this time of year, was passed on to me by my amazing mother and I only hope that it is something my kids will do with joy, for their own families years from now. Our whole family, hubby included gets wrapped up in the excitement, of the Christmas Elf, Santa, and the real reason for the season. I hope that you all had an amazing Holiday and wish you Only the Best for the Year to Come.
