A Christmas Living Room Tour

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Hi there friends!! If you’ve just come Jordan’s blog, A Blue Nest, welcome! I’m so glad you’re stopping by today. Isn’t her little girls room just beautiful! I always loved the Nutcracker and that room just gives me all the feels! 

I’m so glad to have the opportunity to share a fun blog hop with you today! I’ve joined some wonderful friends to share out favorite rooms in our homes all decked out for Christmas! So be sure to stick around all the way at the bottom of this post I’ve linked up all of their gorgeous spaces! 

What does Christmas mean to you? I think we could all agree that it’s often filled with joy, togetherness, traditions, fun festivities, celebration and worship, love, and maybe a couple extra pounds tacked on by the end of the year…uh-hem..cookies I’m looking at you 😉 I also think we can all agree that there is something quite magical about stringing up those twinkle lights. Dressing your tree with ornaments from years past or maybe some homemade ones, like dried fruit and cranberry/popcorn garlands. Or making those cookies that your Grandmother use to make when you were little. I know all of those things make our home feel a little extra special this time of year. Like previous years, I’ve so enjoyed taking the time to “deck my halls” Though I will admit compared to years past, this year it’s really toned down, however using less has truly been so refreshing. The boys and I worked on drying out oranges and making our own homemade gingerbread for the tree and aside from our ingredients for our homemade items I didn’t add anything new this year. I’m feeling beyond blessed by the slowness and simplicity of our homemade Christmas and I truly hope you enjoy it too!

I love this little entrance of ours. I opted to keep things really simple with a homemade orange wreath. The hooks are from Parabo Press and they are both functional and pretty! That print is from my dear friend, Ramsey you can find her on IG here. I will cherish that little print of our house for years to come.

this little eclectic tree is by far my favorite one ever. It’s filled with so many memories and the handmade ornaments are the icing on the cake!

my homemade advent wreath is our dining room table centerpiece. every night after dinner we light the candle[s] and read from our devotional and bible. It was so simple to make. I found the wreath form with candle holders at my local A.C. Moore and just filled it in with greenery. I opted to use natural hand rolled beeswax instead of the traditional pink and purple candles. I really love the simplicity. You can find my tablecloth here and the macrame runner here

a few little touches on my books shelves, like homemade candles, framed christmas music and little trees. I believe when I keep things simple, each piece has it’s chance to shine.
