Christmas is here! I love all things Christmas – the decorations, the movies, the lights, the traditions – it’s the best! Having kids makes it even more fun because of how excited Roy gets about everything.
This year I wanted to share all of my decorations with you! I typically switch things up each year, even just a little bit, to keep things fresh. The last 2 years I’ve done the traditions red, green, gold and silver colors. This is what our living room looked like 2 years ago (I realized this year I have zero photos of our living room last year since Penelope was only a few weeks old and Roy wasn’t even a year and half yet! Turns out last holiday season was a bit of a blur. 😉
Living Room | White, Gold, Silver Christmas Tree
This year I decided to not use red anywhere. I bought a bunch of white ball ornaments and a white tree skirt to use instead of the red ones we have and let me tell you, I’m obsessed with our tree this year!! I actually bought super inexpensive white bulbs on Amazon so I could splurge a little bit on our tree skirt and I’m so glad I did it that way! You can’t tell the bulbs aren’t fancy ones and they’re shatterproof so when Roy wants to take them off and play soccer with them (I mean, I guess they do sorta look like white soccer balls haha!), I don’t have to stress that they’re going to shatter everywhere – I highly recommend them!
I always wrap the tree with some sort of ribbon and got glittery gold ribbon this year (Rishi was so thrilled haha!). I chose to keep all the ornaments that weren’t white, gold or silver off the tree. Next year I’m planning on doing a kid tree in out downstairs that the kids can cover with all of the funky, weird ornaments I’ve collected over the years!
I picked up a faux fur throw from West Elm and I love it! Adding different textures to rooms is one of my favorite ways to make it more cozy and eclectic.
My favorite way to decorate for Christmas is with trees. Since they don’t scream “Christmas” I put them up at the beginning of November and keep them up until I’m tired of them – typically sometime in February. I like decorating with seasonal items rather than all holiday specific items since I can keep them out longer! Obviously we have a few things that are only for Christmas that come down after New Years Day but generally I do more seasonal items.
Most of my decorating is on the main level – our living room, dining room, kitchen and entryway. I have a couple things upstairs for the kids and will probably do more all over the house when the kids are a little older and can appreciate it more!
I always decorate our entryway for the season and the holidays. This year I picked up this super cute “Fa La La” pillow (currently 30% off!), added some gold and silver foliage to our entryway vase and put out gold trees to make our entryway more festive. I was thrilled to find that pillow because I didn’t know how I was going to decorate the entryway for Christmas with it being heavy on the pinks! 🙂 It fit the space perfectly.
I didn’t do a ton in my office but I wanted to do a little bit since it’s right off of our entryway. This year I’m doing the All Good Things Collective advent so I strung it up on my desk to display it! I love that the pinks match perfectly to my desk!! I also put one of my crazy gold glitter trees in here to make it more festive.
That about sums it up! I love decorating for Christmas and always switching things up year after year. What do you think of this year’s decor?
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas decor home tour! Thanks for reading!
