Happy Friday friends! I’m wrapping up this week with the final home tour at our house. Joining a fun group of ladies and this tour has been going on all week, so hope you’ll stop by and visit them all. It’s a great way to get inspiration for yourself. Marty with A Stroll Thru Life is our hostess and she puts this tour together every year.
If you’re stopping by from DaNita with Delightful Order, welcome to you! A little intro about me. I’m a long time blogger and have been in the blogging world for so long. It’s amazing that this is my 14th year of sharing Christmas decor and inspiration online. Oh how things have changed in those years!
This is the 3rd house I’ve lived in since blogging and my husband, Mark and I so enjoy updating our home and making it beautiful.
Welcome to the foyer! I love to add faux garland to the staircase and hang these gorgeous glass balls from it, this sure adds a festive touch all lit up at night. I got those pretty brass bells online and here are a couple of sources for those (affiliate links):
These beautiful ornaments were from Tree Classics a few years ago and they are some of my favorite ornaments.
I made this bow myself with a roll of wired ribbon. Here’s a little video I did about that if you want to take a peek.
We are in the middle of a project in our foyer and it’s partly done. This foyer table is a favorite spot to add Christmas cheer.
This pretty Christmas tree pillow is from Pillow Candy LLC, owned by my friend, Mary here in Atlanta.
I filled this table with neutrals and lots of shimmery accents. I have a thing for mercury glass.
Trees are from Homegoods a couple years ago and the rest of my mercury glass is a lifetime collection. It never goes out of style.
I love piling pretty sparkly ornaments under glass and this collection of mercury glass ornaments looks especially lovely.
I love adding extra ornaments in bowls too for shimmer and shine. I use a mix of gold and silver metallics and it really sparkles at night.
Simple and sparkly with candlelight. Fresh greens from our yard.
My sister passed that swag to me and it fits in nicely with my things. I don’t buy all new stuff every year, but love bringing out my tried and true Christmas decor arsenal.
Moving to the family room, I did a simple mantel with my Merry Christmas sign (It’s from Between You and Me Signs) and I left my mirror in place and added candles and faux pine trees.
I don’t change out my pillows in here for every season, but it’s a cozy spot at night with the fireplace on.
Next door is the little sitting room off the kitchen. I enjoy adding Christmas cheer to the shelves.
I’ve had all these red and green things for many years too and they add a lot of color to the shelves.
Throw and pillow from At Home this year and I love the addition here on the blue chair.
We pulled out this cute vintage ceramic Christmas tree that he got from his mom and I love it on the kitchen bar. I set it on a round vintage tray, added faux snow and some little village people and it’s so cute.
Don’t miss Cassie Bustamante, who’s next on the tour. She has a pretty style you’ll enjoy! There has been a whole week of tours, so enjoy going through them all.
