Hello World! Welcome Friends! Welcome to Part One of my Christmas Home Tour today! I am so happy to be sharing our Breakfast Nook and Family Room as part of the Cozy at Christmas Home Tour hosted by Katie of Let’s Add Sprinkles. If you are visiting from Monica Wants It, welcome!
If you’re a new reader, let me take a moment to introduce myself. I’m a wife and mom of one feisty 10 year old girl! I’m a former Opera singer and still teach voice lessons to a select few. Being a Southern girl at heart, I love anything traditional. I adore color and mixing patterns and have a deep desire to paint every wall in my house! And, I LOVE Christmas which is extremely obvious by the amount of trees, garland and glitter that can be found in my home at this time of year! After all, we are celebrating the King of King…so, no restraint here.
This is our first Christmas in our new to us house and I have been extremely excited about decorating for the holidays!The Family Room tree is the tree where we place all of the ornaments Little Dedicated has made as well as all of the ornaments that hold sentimental value. The main colors are the traditional red and green with a little bit of white thrown in.
Ginger the Elf has a new resting place every day. You never know where she will land.
I do like to add gold ornaments around the room to tie in with the gold in the Breakfast Nook.
The stockings were made by my Mom years ago. Greg thinks he’s special because she put bells on his stocking. LOL
The window above the mantel along with the Christmas lights on the mantel made it difficult to take pictures. I turned off the mantel Christmas lights because there was too much light.
I used two different ribbons on this tree. I find it easier to manipulate the ribbon when I cut them in 3′ strips or sometimes smaller. I stick the end of the ribbon inside the tree, then tuft it out and back in again. Each ribbon strip is placed going in a different direction.
Using ribbon is a great way to fill a tree.
I set the table with Spode’s Christmas Tree.
I hope you enjoyed seeing Part 1 of our Christmas Tour. Part 2 will go live on the blog towards the end of next week! I hope you will pop back in for the tour!
