Hey ya’ll! I’m so excited you’ve stopped by to check out my holiday home decor! When the Christmas season rolls around, bringing out the decor is easily the thing I anticipate most. From putting up the tree to lighting the first pine-scented candle, I just love the spirit that is brought into my home and my community when the holiday trimmings go up. I’ve been living in my own place for about 5 or 6 years now and I feel I’ve finally reached a point where I have an ample amount of Christmas decor accumulated to fill my current dwelling. Of course I am always on the hunt for more/new holiday items, but it’s a nice feeling to bring out a box of Christmas decor and almost have too many options to choose from. This year for the first time I decided to bring in a lot of fresh components. We have a fake Christmas tree, so being able to still get that fresh, piney smell from fresh garland and wreaths was really appealing to me. We also have a wood burning fireplace that just begged for natural, rustic surroundings (which, don’t worry, we are SUPER careful with the garland when we have a fire lit. I have been keeping it moist with a water spritzer bottle nearby, and we have a fire extinguisher within arms reach in case God forbid the worst happens!)
There was also something so special about decorating my first home with the fiance. Although we’ve been together for 5 years, this is the first time we’ve lived together. And being engaged for 1 year now, I had some serious nesting instincts kick in and a sense of wifely duty to make our home a warm, inviting holiday paradise. I think I achieved exactly what I was going for and the fiance has made several comments about how much he loves coming home to our little Christmas wonderland. #winning
I hope you enjoy the tour of our home!
Styled the bar cart with my favorite coupe glasses, gold cocktail shaker, and a fresh holly branch in a jar.
That’s it! Thanks for stopping by to check out our humble holiday home and I hope I’ve given you some great ideas to go deck out your own home for the holidays.
