If there is a theme to my Christmas decorations this year it is RED! It just sort of kept popping up everywhere and then I just ran with it. I love it!
I promise, promise, promise I will keep this post short on words and heavy on the pictures.
So let’s get started on the Christmas tour!
The Fireplace and Tree
Red is visible in the coffee table centerpiece, fireplace and Christmas tree. I love how this reoccurring color ties the three together. Oh, and just so you know it is a RARE occasion that our living room is this clean.
We haven’t told Esther that the stockings will be filled with Christmas presents on Christmas morning because then she might notice that she doesn’t have one. #momfail
My eyes are on the lookout for a temporary one until my mom makes her one for Christmas next year.
The Coffee Table Our First Family Ornament
The coffee table centerpiece just came together on accident. I moved the tray to the center of the coffee table because we were hosting our small group that night and then I just placed the red ornament on since I didn’t have anywhere to hang it. I walked out of the room and came back in and thought, “well that looks nice” So it stayed.
While unpacking all our ornaments this year I realized that Noah has lots of ornaments. So I was really excited when my parents gave me this ornament with all our names on it. What a special way to remember our first Christmas together. Now, I just need to get Esther a few ornaments of her own.
The Mantel The Mantel is always one of my favorite places to decorate. This Christmas was no exception. Again, I love the red. It can be found on almost every item displayed.
And if you look closely you can even see a bottle of NingXia Red hiding up there. I’m not sure if it will make it to Christmas unopened though.
The “Alabama” painting is my newest piece of artwork that I bought at a silent auction adoption fundraiser last month. I hovered around the table just so I could make sure that no one out bid me. I think it fits nicely with all the other decor.
The Dining Room The green buckets are left over from Noah’s birthday. The only reason I splurged a whole $3 on them for her birthday was because I knew I would be able to use them throughout the year. So be prepared to see them again. I like this simple arrangement under the lamp in the dining room.
We use Santa sparingly around our house but he makes a nice little addition to this side of the buffet table. I used the sleigh as another excuse to display red ornaments and a small poinsettia bloom.
Ok, so that concludes the red part of the tour. I’ll be back later this week showcasing the kitchen, the girls’ room, and an adorable little tree in the master bathroom.
In the meantime, what is your favorite area of the house to decorate for the holidays? Is it the tree? The Mantel? Or your Kitchen? Did you accidentally have a theme pop up with your decorations?
