Today, I have a Mini Christmas Tour for you.
I guess you can say it’s Part One of my Christmas Home Tour.
I do have a some sneak peeks of rooms I that I have yet to reveal.
Let’s start with the Dining Room.
I am very excited to be joining the wonderful 12 Days of Christmas Tour.
A big heartfelt thank you to our hosts Amy and Christy of 11 Magnolia Lane and
Jenny of Evolution of Style.
We are partnering again this year with the fabulous Lynch Creek Farm.
I am trying to complete the Christmas decorating of a few more rooms.
The Dining room and the Master Bedroom are well on their way to completion
and I have one more room to begin decorating. I was anxiously waiting
for the arrival of another new tree. Stay tuned!
The tablescape in the dining room will have a transitional feel to it this year.
Full reveal of the Dining Room tomorrow.
Because our home is on the market, I fully intended to keep the Christmas decor
to a minimum . . . well, that did not happen!
However, I did keep it to a minimum in the kitchen.
I placed a grouping of bottle brush trees on the counter in front of the bread boards.
While shopping at the local home improvement center recently,
I found cute tabletop fresh trees.
I thought it would be nice to have a fresh tree in the house.
I took the tree out of its stand that it came in and placed it a blue and white cache pot.
I knew exactly what ornaments I would place on this tree.
I had not used them in a few years and not sure why as they are the cutest.
They are Take Out/Delivery Santas and Santa Waiters.
This year I placed a small tree in the Master Bedroom. It’s a real cutie.
I have lots of ornaments yet to hang on it.
Here are some sneak peeks of the room.
Stay tuned for the reveal this coming Friday.
Now on to the areas that are all adorned for Christmas!
If you missed any of them in its entirety, the link is embedded in the title of the room.
The inspiration for the decor of the Great Room this year was the flocked tree.
With its snowy limbs, I thought that keeping with the gold and silver tones
with a splash of blue would be just the look I would go for this year.
I carried the theme of gold and silver down the tree with packages and pretties
of silver and gold.
The mantel was adorned with a garland from Lynch Creek Farm.
I chose the Deluxe Port Orford Garland
for its beautiful wispy and cascading effect, as you can see.
I cannot tell you enough of how much I love this centerpiece,
the Snowberry Glow from Lynch Creek Farm.
It is truly as fresh as the day it arrived.
I always have a Memory tree every year. This year it is in the Sunroom
along with Rudy dressed in his hat and mittens….waiting for Santa to pick him up.
The tree is filled with ornaments collected and gifted over many years . . . many.
The potting bench.
Fun gifts under the tree.
There seems to be a bit of a theme of “Joy” this season.
A big thank you for your visit today with my Mini Christmas Home Tour.
From our house and Rudy’s Antlers to yours . . . we wish you a very. . .
And I leave you with one of my very favorite ornaments that I purchased
when my son went off to college . . . years ago.
I am sure many of you can relate to this in some way.
I wish you all a most Merry Day!!!
Today I am touring with these very talented ladies.
Hop on over and see the beautiful Holiday inspiration they have to offer!
