Hello! I just love home tours and I hope you have enjoyed this one so far.
In an effort to simplify a bit, I only really decorated the family room and dining room this year. Let’s start in the family room :)
I don’t think you can go wrong with greenery! I also love pine cones. I use them year round in my decor but I add a ton more during the holidays.
Everyone fights over the gray reading chair. I kind of wish I had two. It usually sit in between to two sets of book shelves where the tree is now but I like it in the window best.
We make gingerbread men and houses every year and I love how it makes our home smell. This year I made more men than usual and made them into ornaments. The first batch was baked over 2 weeks ago and they still make the whole room smell delicious!
I use white chocolate to decorate them. I think white chocolate and gingerbread is one of my favorite flavor combos.
I’m kind of obsessing over green and blue plaid this year. It fits in nicely with my existing decor plus, plaid just seems to scream “Christmas”.
I have a mix of artificial green and real. Luckily my mom has a ton of pine trees and several different kinds of evergreen bushes. They smell so good!
This nativity is near and dear to my heart. It was a gift from Shane when we had tiny babes and things were tight. He saved and saved to get it for me because I had mentioned that I loved it when we saw it at the bookstore.
I love doing tablescapes throughout the year, but decorating my dining room at Christmas is my all time favorite!
Our table is not huge so it means I have to keep things simple. Wood slices and fresh greenery paired with freshly baked gingerbread men make this welcoming.
I added names to each cookie too!
I had a tiny cookie cutter as well so I made smaller ornaments for the little tree in the corner. The tree also has the clay snowflake ornaments my kids made last year.
Do you think you could wait for dessert to eat your gingerbread man? My kids didn’t quite make it ;)
Thank you for taking the tour of my Christmas home!
