December is a busy month with our daughter’s birthday falling two weeks before Christmas. I’ve finally taken down the party balloons and was able to photograph our holiday home decor.
This year I am keeping with simple styling and focused more on neutral colors with a pop of hunter green and black.”
We have had this flocked Christmas tree for a few years now and I love it! I added white swifter/dusters on the branches to give it more of a “snow” effect”. It was an idea I saw on Lucy’s blog craftberrybush.com a few years ago. Lucy is super talented and her home is stunning. I incorporated a mix of ornaments I have accumulated over the years and added a few new ones like these wooden ornaments from JoAnn’s Fabric Store.
For the bookcases I left most of the decor I have up all year, but swapped out a few items with more greenery and trees. (Don’t mind the ugly wires and speakers that I haven’t found a way to hide yet).
Our entry table holds our manger that I received as a gift from my mom when we had our first Christmas in our home – nice reminder of the reason for the season.
I hung mini boxwood wreaths over our kitchen cabinets and sink using a neutral grosgrain ribbon that had a hint of black.
The white village homes are from the Target dollar spot. I added in a hunter green utensil holder I found at Home Goods to tie in the festive color palette but that could stay out throughout the winter.
Even though we aren’t having any guests this holiday season, my daughter has been using this room for her online schooling, so I decided to add a little holiday cheer. The horn was decor my mother-in-law gave to me and I embellished it with some greenery and the same ribbon I used in the kitchen to help the rooms flow together.
