Y’all…today is a GREAT day! I am so happy to be the “featured guest” in the Farmhouse Holiday Decor Series that has been going on since September. This series has included an all star line up of my favorite bloggers, and I have enjoyed each and every one of their posts. They are soooo inspirational!
The fact that I am getting to join this line up today is truly an honor! (If this is your first time visiting my blog, WELCOME!)
This week, the series is focusing on Christmas Trees and Family Rooms. In order to participate in this series, I had to decorate my family room and put up my tree waaaay before I usually do, but that’s okay. Now I am going to be able to sit back and relax and enjoy the holiday season. :)
Let’s get started!
When we removed the double doors behind our couch this past spring and installed windows, I knew that I would want to hang wreaths on them this Christmas.
I got these beautiful boxwood wreaths from Wayfair, and added the red ribbon and white bells from the dollar store.
As you can see, I love the color red, especially at Christmas. It’s just not Christmas without red for me. :)
If you circle on around the room to the right, you will find my bookcases all decked out for the holidays, and my Christmas tree.
I bought a Douglas fir this year. I usually get a Fraiser Fir, but I loved how full and traditional this Douglas fir looked.
I wanted to keep it simple this year, so I decorated with white ornaments (the stars are from Hobby Lobby) and some brown gift tags (from Walmart.)
The red ribbon around the tree is left over from last year.
I found these Christmas stockings at Gordman’s for just $9.99 a piece. I added a chalkboard tag with each of my kiddos names on them and the white star ornaments like the ones on my tree.
I found this red metal box at a thrift store a couple of years ago, and I love using it at Christmas each year by just adding some greenery, berries, and pine cones.
Here is the tree and garland all lit up with lights…
Is there anything better than the glow of Christmas lights?!
Of course, I have to leave this tour with the best picture of all…..our sweet dog, Bentley. This is his favorite spot on our couch. :)
Thank you for stopping by!
Now it’s time to check out all of these other great Christmas trees! ENJOY!!
