Christmas Home Tour 2018

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Merry Christmas!!!  I cannot believe we're only two weeks away from Christmas.  I need these next two weeks to slow down and then I need January to speed by haha!  

Last night was my mom's birthday dinner, so as soon as we got home from that, I snapped a few pictures for this blog post.  This year, I didn't go all out on Christmas decorations, so you'll notice everything is pretty bare minimum.  I've gone all out before, but I just wasn't feeling it this year.  BUT next Christmas we'll have a baby so you better believe I'll go all out on decorations!!

And quick side note:  We chose not to send out Christmas cards this year in order to save that money for the adoption.  If you typically receive a card from us, you won't this year 😩 We'll be back at it next year!!

Now, let's get to the home tour!  I didn't get a picture of the front of our house because it was freezing temps last night haha!! So, y'all come on in!
 I set up my Willow Tree nativity in our entry way along with a small tree that has battery powered lights and a little candy dish holding kisses!

 Here's a quick picture of the front door.  You can see the lighted garland we have around the door and the wreath has lights on it too.  We've also got two small lighted trees flanking either side of the door too, and I am traditional and still put candles in the windows.  I love that look so much.  You can also see the two red buckets I stick out on the porch when we have deliveries--I want to treat the people working hard delivering packages.

 To the left of the entryway is the dining room and I'm just trying to ignore that this year haha!  I just stuck a runner on the table and used colored balls in the dough bowl.  Next year, I'll do a little more like I did last year!

 I've got some of my mother-in-law's Christmas Villages on the sofa table (one with a bulb out still).  I LOVE looking at Christmas villages and my aunt used to do a huge one growing up and I was always so fascinated!

 The one difference this year in decorations is the tree!!  I had to get a new tree because our old one literally would not stand up straight.  Last year, no matter how many magazines we stacked under the base, it leaned so bad 😂.  I've been wanting a flocked tree forever, so I found one that was a great price!  I'm not totally satisfied with how the tree turned out this year, but decorating a tree is expensive!  Next year I'll buy a little more decor and make it how I want.  This was partly my inspiration!

 I realized today that we're missing a stocking because Dustin has already taken mine and filled it.  I won't see that again until Christmas morning haha!!  I hope I'm not sounding like a broken record to you, but I keep thinking about how next year we'll have THREE stockings!!!  I think I'm going to get them from Pottery Barn and get them monogrammed!

The next couple of pictures are from the kitchen....I still need to get a backsplash up.  I had picked out a tile and then Home Depot discontinued it...ugh.

 And I have my Christmas candle and soap next to the kitchen sink.

 I love putting a tree in our bedroom.  I've kept it just lights and I love the look it brings.

That's it for this year!  Next year, we'll have a small tree in baby's room to add!  And hopefully we'll get our upstairs tv room together so I can add a small tree in there, too!


  1. LOOKS FABULOUS!! Your tree just pops!!

  2. It all looks great and next year will be even more fun!

  3. As I just text you, I LOVE your nativity! And the tree with just lights in the bedroom is so pretty - just simple and beautiful. I cannot wait to see what you do next year!

  4. I love all of it and I love how this is bare min. for you when I know people who would think it is a lot haha This would also be bare min. for me so I get you. Looks amazing!

  5. Lol this is scaled back? I literally only have a tree up hehe. Your home and the decor are LOVELY! And how sweet will next year be!

  6. I can't believe y'all will have THREE stockings next year! That is just so exciting! And I love all of your decor. Your home is always so warm and inviting.
