Home for the Holidays

I love having the house decorated for Christmas.  It makes it feel so warm and cozy.  Since we've only been in our house for a year we really don't have much Christmas decor but I think I've got a good start and can definitely add to it every year.  A great way to keep your decorations from looking too choppy and scattered is to pick a, dare i say it... theme.  I chose red as my main color with accents of gold.  So I added gold ribbon to the tree and gold ornaments to the garland.  I used red berries in the garland, in some of my everyday objects in the house (the lanterns and the pitcher) and one of the pillows I chose had red berries.  It's gotta be subtle to work but it really creates a cohesive look throughout the house.

We cut down our tree ourselves for this first time this year- didn't we get a great looking tree?!

Stockings from Pottery Barn.  I bought the garland pre-lit at Lowe's and then hot glued ornaments and berries in it.  Stocking holders are from Target.

The lanterns are on the hearth year-round but I added some berries to get them looking festive!

Candy Canes and Cinnamon in apothecary jars in the kitchen behind the sink.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
