I hope that you all have a great day today!
I just wanted to post my Christmas Home Tour. These pics are from last year but I never actually showed it as a tour so I thought I would this year.
I showed you How I Decorate my Mirrors for Christmas
I decided to do something a little different.
I wanted to decorate some of my mirrors.
I found some beaded and mirrored garland and snowflakes and decided to hang them over my mirrors.
I really like how it turned out.
I think that it was a great final touch for my white and sparkly theme.
I also liked to see the reflections on the mirror.
The mirror on mirror looked great!
You can do this with just about anything…garland, beads, popcorn, Christmas cards, handmade snowflakes, ribbon, etc. Just look for what you already have. Remember, you don’t NEED to buy anything.
For my other mirror, I just hung a really huge ornament.
It’s white and sparkly…perfect!
I think it fills the mirror nicely.
I have two mirrors over my couch and I had two matching smaller snowflakes to use.
I am really liking snowflakes this year.
Plus, it matches my tree!
I think it adds just a little something to the room!
Again, you can use anything you have or your kids can make homemade snowflakes and glue sparkles on. (We usually do that for the windows and they LOVE it.)
I LOVED my tree last year!
We decorated our tree with white, silver and sparkly ornaments!
I am really happy how it turned out! :)
We did get a real tree year but I saved a lot of money on our ornaments.
I bought MOST of them from garage sales like this Pottery Barn star.
I also bought a lot of them on clearance from Wal-Mart last year for 50 cents each like this one.
Others I bought as souvenirs from a family vacation a couple of years ago.
I am really loving the sparkly ones!!!
I tried to squeeze ornaments inside the tree so there are ornaments EVERYWHERE!
I seriously tried to put an ornament on almost every branch.
The more, the better! (for me anyway)
I took some pictures of some of my favorites.
I know… I take a lot, heehee!
I love the words!
Gracie really likes this one.
The kids seriously had a BLAST helping me decorate it!!!
They each have there own special ones too!
Here are some pictures at night.
I also made A Simple Christmas Vignette.
I wrapped this cute Merry Christmas sign around a candle holder.
I decorated with picture frames and already had and pinecones.
I just filled the frames with wintery pictures of the kids! I love doing that!!! :)
I LOVE the nature look. I just took a candle holder that I had and filled it with acorns that the kids picked and added a couple branches from our tree.
This tree is from a garage sale.
The greenery is not real but it looks real, doesn’t it? I also bought that from a garage sale.
That’s it….simple, festive and free…except for the pictures but those were cheap and they don’t count because I need them.
I LOVED my Wintery Christmas Tablescape!
I am excited to show you my Christmas tablescape!
I am really happy with how it turned out.
I only used what I had.
I placed cute ornaments in the bowls.
These would make great little gifts for your guests to take home.
I LOVE the silver accents.
This is my candlestick that I spray painted.I showed you my obsession with pinecones in glass here.I wanted a simple one.It might look like a lot but it is just a grouping of bigger items.I LOVE big! I love this big star!Of course, I love the sparkle!I seriously love this tree!I did place little ornaments around to add bling!Here is another view.Here is another candle I painted.I am really happy with this room! :)I LOVE this tree too!I showed you what I did to the mirror here.Here are some more random shots, lol.Here are some shot pics at night…because I am crazy with pictures, lol!
I have told you all about my obsession with white, silver and glitter this year but I also love good, old fashioned nature!
I love using natural materials mixed with silver, glass, etc.
Here I used different kinds of sticks in a silver vase (that I spray painted silver a while ago) and I threw in a turkey feather that my husband found in the woods. Next to that, I just placed some pinecones in a glass vase. That’s all FREE and great all winter long. I was able to use silver, glass and nature altogether and I love it. I really like mixing! You can group together all of your favorites things…you cannot go wrong with items you LOVE!
Here I used pinecones in a glass vase again. I just love doing that!
I also LOVE acorns in glass. (These are the same acorns from my fall tablescape.)
I also used cinnamon sticks (from my fall tablescape) and placed them in another glass vase.
Here is a cinnamon broom that my husband surprised my with from Trader Joes. This thing smells AWESOME!
Here I added some acorns and a couple branches from our tree to a candle holder.
I like the nature look!
Can you guess what is next…pinecones in a glass vase, lol!
I added that to the bathroom. It is simple and nice looking! And…EASY and FREE!!!!
LOL, here are some more! This is seriously the easiest thing EVER!
Last thing, I added a real wreath to our front door. I did not buy this, again, my husband surprised my with it from Trader Joes.
You can’t forget about the most important thing…
I hope that you all have a great day and have fun putting up your Christmas decorations this year!
Have a blessed day!
