It’s been a long month and with Christmas only 7 days away we finally finished decorating the house for the Holidays! Don’t get me wrong… the boxes have been sitting in the middle of our living room for weeks now… we just haven’t had a chance to put all the pretty sparkly decorations up!
We spent several hours this week taking everything out of the boxes and getting it set up! I absolutely love having my Christmas decorations all around me. Plus our living room at the new house is long and skinny… so my desk is behind the couch! Which means I get to enjoy the Christmas tree while I work!
Don’t you just love sitting under the sparkly lights?
It’s definitely my favorite part of the entire Christmas Home Tour!
My Mom bought us this little Bride and Groom last year for our wedding ornament! Look how adorable it is! I am absolutely smitten with it… it’s definitely front and center on the tree!
This little elf is a new addition as well… every year for as long as I can remember Mom has bought us an ornament from Hallmark. Each of us has a series that we collect: Mine is Mary’s Angel’s, the Little Bro collects the Fun Decade Series, Mom collects the Frosty Friends and now the hubby has officially been welcomed to the family with his own series! The North Pole Tree Trimmers! Isn’t he cute?
In addition to all of my fun European ornaments from our family vacations I recently bought this little fish! The hubby and I went to the beach with Mom this year and I bought our very first vacation ornament! I need to make this little guy a fun tag that reads “Fort Walton Beach, 2015”
These little ice skates might just be my favorite new ornament this year! Stephanie over at Swoodson Says made them for me in a fabulous ornament exchange! I told her I love blue and ice skates and she totally delivered! They’re super cute… especially the laces with the little jingle bell ties! Plus she made a super cute tutorial so you can make your own if you want! (Trust me… you want to! They’re super cute!)
Bitty was loving photobombing my pictures for the first 20 minutes… then she tuckered out! Look how sweet she looks!
Since we don’t have a mantle at our new house I had a blast decorating our big white bookcase! I’ve never even thought about decorating the inside before (I’ve just decorated the top and left the inside alone) but I love how it turned out! I was able to sneak most of my favorite pieces into the living room this way! Score!
I’m still looking for the perfect stockings… although you can see our one lone pretty stocking up top! I’m not sure if we’ll keep that one… it will depend on what we pick for a full pair!
Y’all got a little peek at our new living room! (Did you notice that?) I’ll be doing a full house reveal in January but I just had to share our Christmas decorations!
I absolutely love how the decorations turned out this year… they’re so blue and sparkly!
That’s a definite must have! 😉
Of course decorating for Christmas is very tiring…. Bitty didn’t last on the couch long without cuddling up on the pillows! Oh to be 9 pounds and a puppy!
