Welcome to our Christmas Home Tour! I'm excited to share with you the final product of our Christmas decorating this year. Our mammoth (11 foot tall) tree sits behind the loveseat, where we can enjoy the twinkly lights and still have traffic flow through our living room.
In the living room, I brought out my big glass bowl and added some pinecones, a white candle, and some glittery branches.
I tucked a pretty snowflake into one of the empty frames on the wall for some added shine.
My green glass trees are sitting atop the secretary desk. I recently filled the case with my milk glass collection. I think they are the perfect backdrop for our Christmas decorations.
In the dining room, I created a simple display using candles and glass votives that we already had on hand.
I love my glittery animals...
I also used the burlap table runner that I made (you can find the tutorial in this post.)
Another DIY project from this year made it's way onto the record player. The "Glittery Wonderland" scene was such a fun project, I hope it will last for years to come! I made the moss-covered trees last year, tutorial here.
At the top of the stairs, I just tucked some branches with pinecones on them into our vase of willow branches.
And since we had to move the furniture around a bit for the tree, I decided to create a little sitting area right next to the tree. It's a fun little spot to read a book, sip some tea, and enjoy the Christmas lights.
A couple more gratuitous photos of the tree... This tree is definitely a show stopper. My 5 year piano student was in complete awe of the tree! I don't think she had ever seen one so big!
We had a LOT of leftover branches from the tree. After filling a few vases with them over the house, we also gave some away to my sister and my piano student's family.
It's nice to have the scent of evergreen wafting through the house again.
From our home to yours, we wish you a joyful season celebrating the birth of Christ! Merry Christmas!
