My Christmas Tour 2016 | 12 Days of Holiday Homes


Welcome to my 2016 Christmas Home Tour!  I'm so happy to be part of The 12 Days of Holiday Homes again this year with so many of my favorite bloggers!  The inspiration from this group is amazing and you can find the complete line up with direct links at the end of this post.  The tour is hosted by Jenny from Evolution of Style and Christy & Amy from 11 Magnolia Lane, who lined up a fabulous group.  And a big thank you to Lynch Creek Farms for sponsoring the tour.  Today three of us are sharing our homes, so be sure to hop over to The Pink Clutch and Life & Home at 2102 and check out their gorgeous homes decked out for the holidays. 

It was really fun to decorate in our new home this year.  When we were first looking at our house during a showing, I was already scheming about where my Christmas décor would go and couldn't wait to pull it out this year.  So let's get started. 


I loved using fresh greenery this year starting with my front porch.  The beautiful wreath on my front door is from Lynch Creek Farm which arrived so perfect.  I choose the Three Cedar Wreath with a Red Bow and then paired it with this mini cedar tree for a simple holiday front porch.


Another look at my pretty wreath and a peek at our Christmas tree from the front porch.  I love that you can see the tree lights from outside at night too.


Hi Sadie! 

I really didn't plan to have this girlie in my tour, but she looked so pretty watching out the front door as I was photographing, so I grabbed a piece of ribbon to give her a more festive look so she could be included.


And I'm so proud to say that those wrapped presents actually contain gifts.  I was much more organized with my Christmas shopping this year.  And they sit below our family Christmas tree with everything from our fancy ornaments to all our special homemade ones.  I don't do anything else to it and love it like that!  It's so meaningful to us and fun to pull out the same ornaments every year and reminisce about them.


Fresh garland and eucalyptus for my mantel along with a few wooden Christmas trees and our linen stockings.


I continued the fresh garland on our stairs as well and added a simple bow.  I love the location of our tree in this home.  You can see it when you walk in the front door and it's in our view from the couch.  I can't wait for Christmas morning to lounge on the couch with my coffee and watch my kiddos open their presents!


I dressed up the dining room table with fresh greenery and a few holly berries.  With a little spritzing every other day, all my greenery has done so well.  My favorite charges and plates that I use for all occasions are paired with a crisp white napkin.  I added a little clipping and the black and white striped ribbon to finish off the place setting.


I added a few festive touches in the bedroom too.  My boxwood wreath is making another appearance, along side these pretty red mini flowers.  I've always wanted Christmas bedding and love this plaid blanket I added this year.  It's one of those pieces that makes me happy when I walk into the room.


And that wraps up my Christmas Home Tour.  Below is a complete line up of all the participants.  I've been so inspired by these homes and pinned lots of great ideas for next year!
