I think everyone can agree that the month of December is always a busy one. But that one week in between Christmas and New Years where you have zero obligations? That week is gold! And so, with this sacred week upon us, I finally had the time to take a few pictures of our new home while it’s decked out for Christmas.
I realized I haven’t done an official house post yet for our new home, I promise it’s coming!
Decorating our new home for Christmas was fun, challenging, and expensive! This is the biggest number of windows we’ve ever had on a home, so more wreaths needed to be purchased, among other things. Figuring out where to put the Christmas trees, moving them around one hundred times, deciding what decor pieces look best where, etc. etc.
I’d say it came together pretty darn good for only living in our new home for 6 months! So go ahead and light your balsam fir candle and enjoy the tour!
I made this wooden nativity set last year and had plans to build a stable above it but ran out of time. Adding it to my to-do list for next Christmas or possibly upgrade to a new one.
The view looking in through the front door is definitely my favorite. It’s like a beautiful union of all the greenery in our home; the swag on the front door, the multiple garlands draped throughout, and the massive Christmas tree all greet you as you enter!
Logan and I moved this Christmas tree around multiple times trying to find the perfect spot for it. It’s nice and full and I feared it may be too big for the space, but alas, after rearranging the living room furniture and rug, we were able to decide on a place we were happy with. It’s a beautiful tree so I’d hate to get rid of it… we’ll see where it ends up!
Our dining room table is my favorite spot to put my paper accordion Christmas trees. I added a tablecloth this year to the dining table and I’m loving the pattern it brings in.
The first space I decorated in our new home was this bay window in our kitchen. I bought several of these faux garlands last year from Kirklands and knew exactly where I wanted to put them, so up they went!
The kitchen needs so much work done to it but I’m ignoring all that’s wrong with it for now and concentrating on the cute space this window above the sink offers up for decorating.
Moving upstairs – Amelia finally has a big bedroom and couldn’t wait to have a full size tree this year. I was hoping for a white or tinsel tree but she said she liked my flocked tree that I had at the top of the stairs from last year, so up it went. I’m keeping an eye out for one on sale that I like better in the hopes of getting this beauty back.
This tiny tinsel tree is what she’s been using the past few years in her room. She is so grateful to finally have a big room all to herself!
I added a few new ornaments to Easton’s tree this year but that’s about it. I may change up the garland on it next year but I’d say it’s pretty near perfect!
And that’s the tour! I must say, it was so much easier giving an online tour this year as opposed to last year when I opened up our home to hundreds of people for the Christmas Tour of Homes on Camp Lejeune! I can’t imagine why…🤪
Thank you for letting me avoid taking down my decorations for at least one more day…I hope everyone had a wonderful and Merry Christmas!
