I am so happy to be participating in “Christmas in the Country” this year for the Home Tour and Link Party! There are over 40 decorated homes participating in this two week event, which began on November 28th and runs until December 12th! Stop by Creative Country Mom to see all the stops on the home tour each day for tons of Christmas inspiration! There is also a holiday themed link party for the event where anyone can add their posts!
Welcome to my home! I’m happy to have you here!
We’ve decked out the front of our home with icicle lights top & bottom, rope lights on the banisters, and big glittery bows to top it all off.
Come on inside. It’s nice and warm in there.
My mom gave us this beautiful nativity set that is on the entryway table in the hall. (Thanks mom!)
At the end of the entry hall, we head towards the kitchen where I’ve decorated my baker’s rack with a mini tree adorned with a few vintage ornaments and my wooden spool ornaments. I made mini brown paper packages tied up with string (“these are a few of my favorite things!”) to go under my little tree.
Between the kitchen and livingroom is my favorite vintage piece, my Royal typewriter, that sits on my sofa table. I added my burlap mantle runner to my table this year, and topped it with my old wooden train that I’ve had for years, and our Ralphie bobblehead in his signature bunny pajamas!
I printed off a few Christmas printables and perched them on my typewriter. The cute moose is from Simple As That, and the other two are from The Graphics Fairy.
I found this really stinkin’ cute old truck at Woodstock Market and filled it with faux cranberries, too. He’ll stick around after Christmas for sure.
In the livingroom, I’ve decorated my mantle with candles, stockings and wreath. Let me give you a closer look.
To the left of the fireplace is my barn ladder with my new plaid & burlap Christmas wreath and the glitter garland. You can see the wreath up close in the tutorial I shared yesterday HERE.
On your way back out, you can pop your head into the dining room where I’ve lightly dressed the table with Santa chair covers and a simple centerpiece.
My vintage basin is filled with cinnamon-scented pinecones and a variety of Christmas bulbs, surrounded by faux cranberry branches, all laid out on a burlap runner.
I added tassles made out of baker’s twine and a jingle bell to the Santa chair covers for an extra little touch.
Finally, we’ve added lighted garland around the inside of the front door, and a small artificial tree in the window above it. Maybe by next year, I’ll have some big faux packages to put under the tree.
Thank you so much for stopping by for my Christmas Home Tour! I hope you’ve enjoyed your stay!
