Is anyone else in complete shock that Christmas is this weekend!? This month went by so fast and I cannot believe the big day is almost here. Christmas is always special, especially when you have kids, but now that the boys are getting older and understand what’s going on (at least Uriah!), Christmas is even more exciting. Between decorating the house and the excitement of holiday shopping to the anticipation of Christmas morning, I will never not love this time of year. To celebrate my favorite time of the year with y’all, I wanted to share a fun holiday home decor!
Grab your favorite holiday beverage, get comfy, and let’s dive into our holiday home tour!
If you’ve been around for a bit, you know that I am the queen of neutrals, especially when it comes to decorating our home. During the holiday season when everything is green and red, it can be hard to find holiday decor that I love that fits our style but over the years, I’ve been able to build up a good collection of neutral holiday decor. Yay!
Holiday Home Tour
For Christmas this year, we opted to focus on decorating the main (and most used!) areas of our home: the living room, entryway, kitchen, and the boys’ playroom. We kept things very neutral but added a pop of color in our kitchen and pulled in the classic Christmas colors into the playroom.
For our Christmas tree this year, I wanted to incorporate more texture and natural elements, which was such a fun challenge. I randomly stumbled upon dried pampas and wanted to play around with them in our tree and I’m so glad I did! I ended up placing them throughout the tree to give the tree some texture instead of utilizing traditional garland and love it! To top if off, we skipped a traditional tree topper and I added in more of the pampas to the top of the tree. I love how it came out!
Throughout the tree, I also added in some burlap details, (faux) glittered berries and branches, some pine cones, and some cute ornaments! I love the little owl tree clips, so cute.
For our coffee table, I moved around some of our favorite decor pieces we use all fall and added in a mirrored tray, a cute little reindeer, a few glittery trees, and a joy sign. I love how it came out and by simply putting away the reindeer, the trees, and the sign, I’ll be able to keep the coffee table styled like this all winter long.
In our living room, we also have a console table behind our couch and a good size mantle that I always love decorating for the holidays. Since they’re both out of the way of the boys, I can add in more decor that I do on our coffee table which is fun. This year, I added in a bunch of mini Christmas trees, some Santa figurines, and garland. It gives the space the perfect amount of holiday spirit!
I might have kept things simple in our living room, but I went all out with the table in our entryway. Since it’s acrylic/glass, it’s so fun to decorate because it basically blends in with whatever decor I put on it. This year, I turned it into a winter wonderland with flocked mini Christmas trees, reindeer, owls, and a faux fur runner and rug to give the illusion of snow. What do you think?!
If you’re someone that loves classic red and green holiday decor, you’re going to love how we decorated the boys’ playroom! As I mentioned before, we love keeping our holiday decor throughout our home as neutral as possible but we always incorporate color and a little extra holiday cheer in the playroom. It’s always fun for the boys and it adds a pop of color to their space.
Since this space is one that the boys are playing in, we keep the decor to the Christmas tree, add in festive pillows, and add in some smaller decor pieces to the console table and side table.
One of my favorite parts of the playroom holiday decor is the Christmas tree! It’s so festive and fun and the stuffed animals added a fun holiday element to the space. The boys also got a kick out of the upside-down Santa tree topper!
When we have our family over for Christmas, we spend a lot of time in the kitchen so I wanted to add some holiday decor to make it feel a little more festive! We thankfully have a lot of counter space between the island and the outer counters so adding decor on top of them doesn’t impact any kitchen prep too much. Along the far wall, I added in some gingerbread houses, sparkly tin Christmas trees, some cute signs (love the free gingerbread kisses one so much!), and some figurines to bring in the holiday spirit.
We have a little corner next to our window, so I added in a skinny tree and decorated it with a red and green theme to match the center piece on our kitchen table. I also added in a Santa and some holiday greenery to our island!
