Today, I am going to show you a little Christmas decorating around the house.
If you are visiting my blog from Just a Girl’s Christmas Home Tour…welcome!
I am so glad you are here!
In my kitchen, I have this green buffet that you see right when you walk in the back door. We use our back door more than our front door, so I wanted my guests to be welcomed with “Merry Christmas!”
So I downloaded and framed this beautiful chalkboard print from Dear Lillie. You can purchase it HERE. Plus, Jennifer has a ton of other adorable chalkboard prints and more in her online shop. You can see another one I downloaded for my kitchen HERE.
I’m crazy about chalkboards! I know they are a huge fad that everyone is using everywhere, and that is fine with me! I can’t get enough of them!
I painted a wood slice with chalkboard paint for this vignette.
We just recently hung this chandelier from Ballard Designs above our kitchen table, and I love it! I hung some fresh greens from it to give it more of a Christmasey look.
I have a lot of white dishes that I have collected from thrift stores or received as hand-me-downs that stay on my kitchen shelves year round. At Christmastime, I just add some red dishes, and I have instant Christmas décor!
I bought a set of red dishes from Walmart several Christmases ago at 75% off after the holiday. I think I paid about $16 for both sets! The boys love when I get these dishes out because they know that Christmas is coming soon.
I have a few other red dishes that I collected from Willow House years ago, but they no longer sell them.
Here is a look at my green buffet from the other direction. You can see my newly built DIY Galvanized Table in this picture.
For this space, I just added a red berry wreath above the toilet and a new sign, and that was enough to make it feel Christmasey in there.
For our fireplace, I wanted to do something different, and I am in LOVE with dear heads right now! I know they are a fad too, but they are so stinkin’ cute. I couldn’t afford to purchase the ones I liked, so I made my own. I’ll share the tutorial on my blog next week.
I strung some aqua ornaments on a string and draped them between the boys’ stockings.
You would not believe what this fireplace used to look like before we gave it a makeover. You can see the transformation HERE.
We have a real tree in the den. It smells soooo good!
It is so pretty all lit up at night!
If you walk past those stairs, you will be led into our master bedroom.
For this room, all I did was add a red poinsettia wreath above the bed and a red quilt. Voila! Those two simple touches make this space ready for the holidays.
I’ve never decorated our master bath, so this year I decided to add a small, real tree in the corner by the bathtub.
I love seeing my little tree each morning while I am getting ready.
I placed it in a galvanized bucket that I got at Gordman’s. And then I added a pretty little sparkly deer to sit beside it. Simple and sweet.
Well, that’s it for today!
Tomorrow, I will be sharing a Christmas tablescape with you, along with our hot chocolate bar!
Please come back and see me!
