My Christmas Home Tour


Photobucket

Only 2 days for Holly Bloggy Christmas!  On Wednesday we shared Christmas Crafts at Just Sew Sassy, and for day 4 we are sharing our Christmas Decor at Shabby Creek Cottage. And then on Friday I'll be hosting a Christmas Edition of my Friday Favorites Party!

For my decor, I like things that are bright and colorful, and I like to create an elaborate display using simple and inexpensive things like Christmas Balls and Cone Trees from the Dollar Tree, as well as Christmas Wreaths and arrangements.

The center of the display consists of a ball wreath and some rainbow garland.  Then the shelf is covered is some snowflake fabric, and on top of it is a "colored mirror tree," two glasses of colored balls, and two green-sequin trees, and more rainbow garland.

Besides the wreath, one of my favorite parts of this display are the vintage trees on each side.  My mom gave me these a while back, and as much as I liked them, I had no idea what I'd do with them.  But as I started working on my display, I knew these balls would be a perfect addition to these little trees and the display!

Each year I hang our stockings from my display case in our living room.  As you can see we have a couple of "Good Cats" for Santa to visit!

And then each year I've done something different to the top.  This year I added a green runner, some red and gold trees (all were dollar store finds), and a flower arrangement. And the red and white "garland" up top is actually two garland-candy canes!


Moving on to the kitchen...I have to admit I really didn't do much in the kitchen this year, and I definitely didn't do anything new, so I'm going to cheat a little bit, and just share a few of my photos from last year,since it's the same stuff.

Everyone always seems to love my little kitchen tree filled with cute little utensils. It's probably the most unique part of my tour each year!


And once again this year, I added my little Christmas countdown and some cute cards to the fridge.

And here's the dining rom table.  We have a bright, fun, vinyl table cloth featuring snowmen, and then for the center piece I have an array of items:

And finally here's our tree featuring a combination of Mouse ornaments,  Candy Ornaments, and a rainbow of colors!

Hope you enjoyed my tour!!  Please come back here and link up all your Christmas ideas for Friday Favorites.
