Hey All! If you know me at all, you know that I am a HUGE fan of Christmas and the Holiday season. I admit, I am THAT person. The person that is jamming out to 98 Degree Christmas album… in August. I am mentally planning Christmas Decor clear back in July. Come October, all 18 totes (not including signage, trees, and wreaths) are out of the attic! I always tell myself I will wait until after Halloween to unpack them, but I confess sometimes I am weak, and we have trick-or-treaters staring incredulously past me at the Christmas Tree in the corner. Whatever, I like it!
So I’m excited to bring you this year’s Holiday Home Tour. Last year you may recall, I went with a more rustic theme with brilliant pops of red. Well, this year as I was shopping around and I found a few sprigs of Juniper Berries, and I fell in love. That was it… Juniper Berries were my destiny, well at least for this Holiday Season.
I went with a flocked white tree this year from King of Christmas. I went with a lot of natural elements. I loved the grapevine I used last year so no sense reinventing the wheel with that. Want to use it on yours ? Here is a trick I use when adding grapevine.
So my theme was lots of naturals, white, and light gray blues tones. Lots of eucalyptus (hobby lobby), Juniper (Hobby Lobby and Michaels) The blue hue berries are actually from the spring stem collection at Michaels. AT the end of the season I CLEARED them out! I told you I start plotting early! I also fell in love with clear bulbs this season and filled them with lots of different natural elements. LOVE!
While I do miss my vivid pops of red, and will probably go back to it next year I love the soothing natural feel of this theme!
Like I said, I really get into decorating for Christmas, so I created a piece of wall art that would compliment my tree! I was really digging my large clear ornaments so I went with that! I wanted to showcase them, so I used that as my point of inspiration. Ta-Da!
I love how simple it it, yet packs a punch!
As for the rest of the living room, I went with a simplistic approach. I am loving the metal ring wreath this year, so I pickedd up a metal craft hoop and made my own using the eucalyptus and juniper.
I also placed a few small flocked trees through out the downstairs. I picked mine up at Walmart for $30!
Lastly I added a little bit of holiday cheer to the stairs. (Ignore the ugly carpet, that is on the “someday” list.)
