I am excited to be a part of the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas home tour. I had to miss the fall blog hop because we were in the middle of a DIY kitchen remodel (to see more on that journey, go HERE)!
If you are here from Making Home Base, welcome!
With all the craziness of the kitchen remodel, my Christmas decor is pretty simple this year.
One of the two Christmas trees is in the family room along with some greenery on the mantel, stockings and a wreath.
The tree is filled with metallic neutral ornaments and little DIY santa photo ornaments.
I absolutely adore putting up these handmade ornaments every year.
The navy walls are new to the space this years and have changed the look of my holiday decor simply by changing the backdrop of the room.
The shelves are filled with my kids’ santa pics through the years. It is pretty obvious how special these photos are to me – I love how you can see them grow from year to year.
Unfortunately now that my 12-year-old is bigger than santa, I’m not sure how much longer the tradition of the pictures with santa will last…
Right off the kitchen, is a cute little hot cocoa bar.
I am a huge fan of my friend Cara’s chalkboard art of Word for Word Chalk Art.
Our second tree is in our library/music room.
This room was my home office, but the piano lost its wall during the kitchen remodel. The $50 painted piano was moved, and I feel so fancy calling the space the music/library room.
The dining room was decorated earlier this fall with greenery that works well for Thanksgiving as well as Christmas (go here to see more on the tablescape and wreaths).
The chalkboard name plates are also a creation by my friend Cara.
Thanks so much for taking the time to tour my home all (simply) decked out for the holidays!
