Well, I am way late to be sharing but I’m finally sharing my Christmas Living Room tour. My house has been taken over by baby stuff and it’s dark by the time I get home which has made it difficult to get some good pictures of our Christmas decor and the truth is, I am a little preoccupied with work and mom life and blogging has been put on the back burner unfortunately.
I wanted a little change this year but couldn’t afford to change things up too much so I just made some small changes like this DIY Ticking Stripe Ball Garland and just tweaking some of the ornaments by leaving out anything shiny or glittery and only using things that were flat or matte finish.
I had an old seagrass rug that I bought from World Market several years ago and I just cut one side and used it around the tree as a tree skirt which turned out super cute! I love the texture it adds!
I recently moved my other console table to that wall and was excited to get to decorate it as well. I started with my new Daisymaebelle wreath that is absolutely stunning and just went from there.
I had these two small trees from a couple years ago at Old Time Pottery and they’re always some of my favorite to use. I stuck a few small pieces of eucalyptus in the trees to tie in with the wreath and decided to use my old green and red books to style the table.
It’s no secret that I am loving brass and gold right now so I pulled out all of my brass/gold items and started adding them in. I picked up the set of gold reindeer at Marshall’s this year and the set of bells on the books from Tuesday morning but the rest of it was things I already had. I shop the house as often as I can and it often pays off!
The past couple years I completely restyled our hutch with Christmas decor but this year I scaled back and just wanted to stick with the table and wanted something classic. I loved the look of several brass candlesticks but didnt own any so I called my grandma who was coming to visit and asked if she had any and got lucky! Big Mama hunted her house and found 14 brass candlesticks and brought them with her which were absolutely perfect! I scrounged up enough candles and then me and a coworker went into the field by work and clipped some greenery to use in the house!
It turned out exactly how I hoped, classic and simple yet festive and didn’t cost me a dime which is even better!
So that’s all for my Christmas decor this year! I tried to keep it fairly simple and I’m just enjoying our first Christmas with our baby girl!
