I thought I would share a few more photos of my home all decked out for the holidays.
We don’t have a fireplace, so we have to get creative with hanging our stockings.
A little “Ho Ho Ho” for the top of the TV (not sure why the walls look SO unbelievably bright yellow in this shot…the actual shade of yellow is much paler in real life). This stuff sheds glitter like no one’s business! But it’s worth the annoyance, because I think it looks so cheery and festive.
I added little touches of Christmas to our wall of shelves.
My favorite part of the wall of shelves is this little Santa boot I got during the after Christmas sales at World Market last year! Once we put it on the shelf, it just needed SOMETHING, so Tadd filled it with red Target Dollar Spot plastic ornaments. Cute!
I don’t really go too overboard in the kitchen. Just some green garland across the top of the back cabinet, a couple of finial-style tree toppers, and my little star-shaped wreaths on my dual pantries. The plate in the plate holder on the right is a brand new purchase. Found it randomly at Walgreens for $1 this past Saturday. It goes with the red bird/cardinal holiday theme I am starting to see take shape in my recent purchases. Ignore all the crap on the counters…I was getting ready to host a Christmas party when this pic was taken.
A closer look at my new $1 plate. Cute for only a buck, huh?
Moving onto the foyer & dining room. My little foyer shelf is always decked out for every season. This year I used my trusty apothecary jar, filled with cheap ornaments. The snowflake topiaries are from Hobby Lobby (50% off!). The silver tray and candy dish are from Dollar Tree. More cheapie ornaments on the tray, and a frosted cranberry candle, which was a gift from a friend.
The dining room is home to my new second tree! The table is dressed simply with my snowflake table runner, my homemade Dollar Tree hurricanes, and some smaller Dollar Tree tealight holders, along with my regular year-round green & brown centerpiece. Yes, I would say that almost half of my seasonal decor comes from my beloved Dollar Tree! I think since my dining room is already green, a little bit of red goes a long way to make it look festive for Christmas.
And a few more shots of my trees, since they make me happy…
Hope you enjoyed this little tour of my home. Happy Holidays!
