It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
It’s such a magical, loving time that is my absolute favorite time of the year.
I finally get to snuggle up in big cozy blankets as much as I want. It’s flannel season which means I live in flannel pajama’s during most of my days off (including right now). Hot chocolate, ice skating, SNOW, Christmas movies that make your heart so happy, and the best part? Family time, lot’s and lot’s of family time. Oh and how could I forget all the yummy baking? Defiantly one of the better parts.
Decorating for Christmas is probably the most fun activity. I have imagined the day I would have my own house where It would scream obsessive Christmas disorder. Finally, I have my own home and I have a lovely boyfriend who lets me throw as much Christmas and glitter anywhere and everywhere I want without a single complaint :).
Today we are taking a tour through my home and checking out all of my glittery decor. I love blue’s and silvers and you will totally be able to tell throughout my pictures. I think they are such classic and elegant Christmas colors.
Of course we have to start with my tree. It’s made up of blue and silver bulbs and of course the personalized ornaments. Funny thing, I have never done ribbon before because I’m awful at it. My mom however, is ribbon queen so I wanted it to look a bit fuller. I called in her assistance and just that small touch really does make your tree look a lot fuller!
This is my little Christmas corner, I call it. I come into the living room and It’s my favorite place to look. If only I had a fireplace, I have so many visions for how to decorate a mantel! Anyway, my biggest decorating advice I have for you is to always decorate with two’s and three’s. If you notice, two pillows, two snowmen, three glitter tree’s. You get the idea, everything looks better in two’s and three’s.
How adorable are the snowmen and the little deer? I’m obsessed. Can I just keep all of this up all year long? It makes me that happy lol (I’m nuts).
I’ve started a little obsession with throw pillows lately. I just think they add an extra touch everywhere. First I was nervous about putting them on the ground because I thought for sure that Izzy would rip them to pieces when I’m at work but she’s been so good! Only stole two ornaments off the tree this year and kept my cute pillows safe :).
One of my favorite Christmas movies (which isn’t saying much, because I love them all) is Christmas Vacation, it’s hilarious and I love it. AJ and I have taken a hobby out of collecting the little figurines every Christmas and they have turned into some of my favorite pieces for decorating! Especially cousin Eddie and his motor home. I put them on my TV stand to give them a center display.
Still obsessed with this vintage side table and that camera! By the way, if you are looking for a great Christmas candle, go to Yankee candle and pick up Christmas Cookie! It’s amazing.
Right after this picture I took a great one of Izzy!
She’s adorable :). The lady’s face on TV though!
These pinecones were originally supposed to be ornaments but they just weren’t hanging right and I got frustrated. So I found this really cute center piece that has a holder in the middle and I filled it with them and then loved how bright it made this piece so I placed them around the center also. Great for a coffee table center piece or even an ottoman center piece!
I have a smaller kitchen, so I don’t go crazy with decorating in here because I don’t have a lot of counter space and I don’t want it to look like too much. I used glittery vase fillers that went with my colors and I added a darker table runner which is absolutely gorgeous! I am obsessed with it and it would also look great on a coffee table so I might order another one :).
I just do simple knickknacks for the kitchen. Simple hand towels, a little sugar holder with a penguin popping out. A cookie jar. A little Christmas bowl for candy or even cookies if you want them on display. Also another candle that I love for Christmas from yankee candle is candy cane lane! A nice fresh peppermint smell. It’s great.
That is mostly my Christmas decor! I still have stockings on the door to put up and garland on the stair railing but that is pretty much it and majority of the cuteness. One last piece I would love to show you is a ladder decor piece I did for outside.
It’s an older style ladder and I bought big bulbs to tie onto it plus this adorable wreathe. It’s so cute outside I love it. You could also do something for inside though if you have a rustic like Christmas decor style. Here’s a picture inside.
I hope you all enjoyed a little trip into my home. Maybe it will inspire you for some decor pieces this Christmas!
December starts tomorrow, I can’t believe it. I hope you all have a wonderful December and a fabulous Christmas! Thanks for stopping by my blog today :).
