Good Tuesday morning friends!! I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that it is December 6th!! How did this happen?!? I’m sure most of you are in full swing with your Christmas decor if you haven’t finished decorating already. I started a little early this year because for the first year ever, I decided I wanted to decorate more than just a few small spaces. I’ve been itching to share with you all and today is the day!! Not only will I be sharing our home but this week I’ve teamed up with 15 other amazing bloggers and they are sharing their homes as well!! Huge shout out to Christina at Christina’s Adventures for putting in all of the hard work to make this happen!!! Be sure to check out the group at the bottom of this post!! Let’s get started!!
This year made me realize just how few decorations we owned while we were in the Military. Last year was our first year in this home and while I was able to decorate more, we held back due to so many projects that we were wanting to complete…but that’s not so much the case this year! I was so excited to get started! My goal was to use and make as much of what we had as I could but there are always those few pieces that you can’t pass up! Our sitting room was probably the easiest room to put together.
Believe it or not most of my Christmas decor this year came from Target and Wal-Mart. I will be doing another blog post where I share more details about where I found things this year and some of my favorite Christmas pieces!! I had so much fun decorating this space and now when I look at it finished I can’t help but think, Winter Wonderland. I wanted our Christmas décor this year to stay true to my style; simple, neutral and farmhouse.
In our family room I wanted to keep it simple but festive. This is where we spend 90% of our time so I wanted the decor to be fun and practical for the girls! We play games in this room, build pillow piles for jumping, take naps and have carpet picnics (eat on the floor picnic style and watch a movie). I really love the way it all came together in here and all of the fun pieces we were able to add!!
This year was different not only because we put up more than one tree and decorated more than one room but I also decided I wanted to decorate our master bedroom and that’s one room I have NEVER decorated for Christmas. I knew it would be a new challenge for me so I was excited to get started, this may have been the first room I decorated. 😉
For our master bedroom I decided to add a little more ‘rustic’ to our decor by adding more pops of red, a few extra vintage pieces and a chippy DIY sign above the mantel. Our master bedroom feels like a snowy retreat and again I just added simple touches to this room to give it the farmhouse Christmas feel!
I hope you’ve all enjoyed this little Christmas tour of our home. I had so much fun decorating it this year and being able to share it with all of you!!!! I will be back on the blog very soon sharing more detail on each room and some Christmas DIY’s!! I hope you take time this week to visit all of the blogs involved in this fun loop of tours. There are so many amazing homes to ‘walk’ through. Head over to Collen’s blog here to see her home next!
