Welcome friends, and Merry Christmas! I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit and to tour my home dressed for the holidays. There are several wonderful bloggers participating in this holiday home tour blog hop hosted by the sweet Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate. You will want to be sure and pay them a visit, too. There is so much beautiful holiday inspiration. A schedule is posted below.
For now, why don’t you come in out of the cold and have a cup of tea while I give you a tour of my home.
As you step through the front door, your enter the foyer. It is a small area, so I have kept my Christmas decor simple. I placed a pretty Christmas wreath on the coat closet door and a vignette on the bombay chest.
The vignette on the bombay chest is simple with a holiday floral arrangement dominated by red flowers, a blue and white plate, and pretty gold reindeer placed upon a tray.
After you have walked through the foyer, you enter the living room. The color palette I chose for my Christmas decor is blue, red, gold, and silver.
I love to use traditional ornaments that have been collected over time on my Christmas tree. Angels and nativity scenes reflect the true meaning of Christmas.
I also took some night pictures of the room. I like the way the lights give off a warm glow in the evening.
On the mantel, I hung blue spruce garland and accented each corner with bows in my chosen color palette. My children’s favorite Santa picture and red candles complete the look.
I kept my coffee table simple, but still reflected the Christmas season. I placed red candlesticks and a pitcher of beautiful white roses upon a Christmas book to create my vignette.
The Nativity is displayed every year and was a gift from my brother.
Now, let’s step into the kitchen. I like that you can enjoy the Christmas Tree from both the living room and the ktichen.
On the kitchen table, I placed a lace runner. On top of the runner, I placed my Grandmother’s white pedestal bowl and filled it with apples and pine branches. Flanking the bowl are crystal candlestick holders with red candles.
On my green jadeite cake stand, I placed a cream pillar candle with Christmas greens and red berries.
I switched out the dishes in the built in with my collection of Christmas dishes.
I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit. Please visit the other wonderful and talented bloggers on the tour. I know that you will not be disappointed. I hope that you have a wonderful and blessed day, and a very Merry Christmas and happy Holiday Season!!
