…to look a lot like Christmas! Our home is completely decorated for the holidays, and I love it so much 🙂 With all the lights and garland and wreaths and of course, the tree, the house feels so warm and cozy. I wish I could keep these decorations up all year round. But then again, I guess it wouldn’t feel as special doing it that way.
Each year I try to arrange things a little bit different (if I can), just to mix things up a little. Obviously, the tree will always go in the same spot. And since we don’t have a fireplace with a mantle, I make do using the media stand. Oh how I wish we had a fireplace and a mantle!
Anyways, let’s do a little Christmas home tour 2012!
These are some of the newest ornaments on our tree this year. The first 2 are from our anniversary trip to Charleston. Then I got one for each of the dogs, Lily, Jack and Sophie.
This one I got on our Disney trip in January 2012 (it was exactly 1 year after we had gotten engaged on our Disney trip 2011). So, I got this ornament and had it engraved to say “Engaged” and “01-08-2011” on either side of the middle pendant.
And these little jingle bell ornaments came from my Nana’s house. I love the little things I have of hers 🙂
I asked my mom if I could have a few items from her Christmas decorations that I remember being in our house growing up. She and I both know there’s no way she can put all her decorations out that she has collected over the years. So, she let me have a few memorable pieces…and I love seeing them around our own house now!
But I think my favorite thing this year is the display of vintage Christmas prints I printed and framed for the dining room. The botanicals that normally hang there just didn’t seem to fit for the holiday season. So I found some vintage prints online, cropped and edited them to fit in the dining room frames, and I think they look GREAT in the dining room! There’s an elegance to them that fits perfectly with the holiday decor.
