Good morning, dear friends! Today, I am so excited to share my living room all decked out for the Christmas season. This is such a special time of year! I have so much to be grateful for, and my heart is filled with so much joy and happiness. Those of you, who follow my blog, know that this is my first Christmas in the house. It has been so much fun decorating a new space for the holidays. As I unpack each box, I find the special memories are still alive, and I treasure each one. This holiday tour is being hosted by the sweet Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate and features several other talented and creative bloggers. A schedule is posted below.
The living room tree is a traditional one filled mostly with religious ornaments, ribbon, and colored balls. Another tree, in our sunroom, houses our special memory ornaments along with decorations made by my children.
The mantel is the perfect spot to hang our Santa picture. Around here, he is a tradition. Embellished garland, bows, red candles, and berries complete the festive look.
The coffee table serves as a snack station for watching holiday movies. Therefore, I kept the decor to a minimum with an arrangement of greens and berries, candles, and a pretty dish. You may notice someone extra in the picture. That is our poodle, Rusty. He follows me everywhere I go. I didn’t realize he made it to the picture until I was putting this post together.
Greens with pretty red ribbon are placed around the room.
I am so happy that you stopped by for the tour! It has been so much fun getting my home ready for the holidays. Be sure to visit the other bloggers on the tour. I know you will find lots of beautiful inspiration for your holiday decorating. Take care, and enjoy you day, sweet friends!

Your tree is looking very grand and majestic flanked by your two beautiful blue chairs! I like how all the blue ties in, even the Santa picture with the blue in his globe. You have created a gorgeous room to celebrate Christmas.
Beautiful!! Your new house is really becoming a Home for the Holidays!

Lovely, Shannon! Beautiful decorating for your new home.
So gorgeous Shannon, the red with your beloved blue makes such a dramatic impact! I know you had much fun decking your new halls and planning your holiday decor.

Your tree is beautiful, Shannon. I’m so glad your Christmas experience at the new house will hold the same memories because of the things you collected through the years and brought with you. I can imagine your delight as you unpacked those boxes! Your greenery, berries, and ribbons are the perfect touches without causing too much clutter. I like how you keep things neat. Can you come to my house? Ha! Love the Santa picture, too! 🙂

I can just imagine how exciting it is to be in a new home, decorating it for the first time. I smile just thinking about it! Your decorations are perfect for your space.

Oh wow, Shannon, you’ve done classic blue & white with a perfect mix of red and green! That red rug grounds it all, no matter what season, but your holiday decor looks beautiful! That’s a traditional look I could certainly love to live with! It makes me wish for more blue in my home. Happy Holidays!
Your room is just the right setting for your festive decorations.
What a pretty room with all those windows and French doors and the Christmas decorating you’ve done has added to its charm. The blue and white with pops of red look wonderful on your tree and your mantel with that Santa pic is perfect. I especially like your furniture and how you’ve placed it in the room – the blue chairs by the tree and the lovely round coffee table.
Just beautiful Shannon! I love your gorgeous tree decorated with blues and reds and the cardinal perched on top! Your mantel is a thing of beauty too with St. Nick framed studying the globe. Wishing you the Merriest of Christmases in your new home. ♥

Your living room looks so welcoming for Christmas! Hi to Rusty, too! I love the traditional look to this room, perfect for the holiday! Thank you so much for being part of another blog hop, and Merry Christmas!
Beautiful Christmas decor. I love the red and blue scheme– so cheery! I love your decorator tree. Our tree is like the one on your sunroom but I am thinking about getting a small artificial tree to coordinate with the rest of my decorations.
Hi Shannon, first let me say how beautiful your blog is! I always look forward to each new post. I was referred to you by a fellow blogger regarding blog hops. I’d love to be invited to participate in one and would appreciate you keeping me in mind if you organize one in the future. Thanks so much. Pat
