Today, I’m back with the rest of my house decorated for Christmas this year. It’s been nice to get it finished the first week of December and then have the rest of the month to just enjoy it all. And this year, I really am savoring the season. This is my third Christmas in my new house and this year it really feels finished and ready for me to enjoy and that’s a good feeling.
My friend, Chris from Just A Girl, hosts a Christmas blog hop every year along with a lot of talented bloggers, so I’m joining this party today and you can find lots more inspiration if you’re looking for it. Just follow the links and Chris has all the updated links on her blog too.
If you are new here and coming by from Courtney and A Thoughtful Place, welcome,so glad you stopped by for my Christmas tour. I dearly love to decorate for Christmas and had a lot of fun this year, pulling out my treasured ornaments and baubles to ready my home for the Holiday season.
I shared my living room and den earlier this year in Part 1, so stop by there if you missed it.
I’m really proud of my newly planked mantel this year and it was so fun to add those special touches to it. I love natural and rustic, but also enjoy glitz and shine too, so I’m a bit of an opposites decorator when it comes to Christmas.
My dining room is filled with lots of silver and gold this year, making it really sparkle and shine.
Hope Wish Joy, three words that are special in meaning especially this time of year.
A vintage style silver tinsel tree on the sideboard, mixed with natural greens and silver ornaments.
Have Yourself an Merry Little Christmas sign is such a nice addition to my dining room this year.

Looking back to the dining room from the kitchen. Come on in the kitchen, this is where I really get my color on for Christmas. Lime green and red are the stars in here!

Since I have a window sill in here, it’s the perfect spot for those little ornaments and a skinny Santa.
Joyful Tidings in the window in green glitter make the window sparkle.
Red vintage style bottlebrush trees, faux paperwhites in cranberries and some hand painted Santa candleholders fit in perfectly on the window sill.
Of course, the rustic shelves get some Christmas cheer too.

The island takes center stage with my beloved red and green Christmas tree. I dearly love this little tree!
I picked up this lime green and red cake plate and big platter along the way and love to display it all with my red and green theme.
I have plenty of ornaments collected for this little tree and it sparkles and shines.
Green and red glittery fronds cascade out the top of the tree.
Merry Christmas Y’all, one of the gift tags from Scripted Simplicity. Love this one!
I get out my Christmas mugs and have them ready for hot chocolate or coffee during the Holidays.
A little night shot of the mugs and tree.
I love piling on the ornaments on the rustic shelves too. Large oversized ornaments are perfect for display in here.
Extra ornaments get piled in the cloche under glass.
One more night shot of the tree lit up.
So, that’s the rest of my house tour this year. I sure hope you enjoyed it all once again. I use the same things for the most part every year, but try to mix it up a little bit, but it’s hard (and I love it all) to change things a whole lot.
The next stop on the blog hop tour is Marianne from Songbird, so don’t miss her beautiful Nordic home. I know it will be lovely!
I so appreciate all of you being here with me for my 8th Christmas in blogland! How in the world can that be? I can look back at my house way back then and am so happy to be in my sweet house this year, celebrating with all of you and my friends here too. It’s a joy to share my home with all of you!
