Whoop Whoop, the tree is up, the mantel is decorated and the stairs is all decked out. I LOOOOVE this time of year. There’s nothing like Christmas to make me feel like a big kid! It also means it’s time for my 2013 Christmas Home Tour!
This year I decided to forego my usual red-and-gold decor in favor of something a little more sophisticated. You’ve already seen the ornament wreath that I made for over my fireplace and I decided to stick with the same colors for the tree: silver, gold and pale blue.
The tree itself is fake. It’s this one that we purchased from Home Depot 2 years ago. It’s prelit so it literally takes 10 minutes to set up!
The mantel is decorated with cheap faux greenery bought from AC Moore last year on clearance. I added some tree ornaments to spruce it up as well as a DIY “Joy” garland.
The garland is just some wooden letters that I got from AC Moore. I dipped them in glitter and sealed them with a clear coat of glue. Then hung them on some white ribbon.
Some extra tree ornaments in a glass hurricane:
I splurged on a 6ft garland and vertical swag from Frontgate. I have to say it was well worth the money. It’s so lush and thick and beautiful!
I love this black and white shot:
I’ll be back later in the week with my newest front door wreath and a few other Christmas decorations from around the house!
