Be warned, this post is MUCH longer than usual. I got a little carried away snapping pics of Christmas details. But somehow managed to forget a few things.. oh well! Our first Christmas in our first home is a special one and I want to remember every last detail. I’m a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to holiday decor – thing tartan, red, green, and a splash of gold. But this year I attempted (baby steps, y’all!) to incorporate a few less-traditional pieces into the mix. Now the pride and joy of this year’s Christmas decor is most definitely the nine foot tall, Caroline Blue Sapphire Christmas tree taking up most of our living room. I love every inch of her. Pearce’s parents cut it down for us on Thanksgiving and lugged it back to our house from GA. They’re the sweetest and we LOVE a good Christmas tree!
Hope y’all enjoy our little holiday home tour!
It’s almost here! My favorite day of the year is just a few sleeps away. As most of my readers know, we’re hosting the big event this year. First on my list of Christmas prep to-do’s was getting the table set and ready to go. We still need to pop in the leaf and set up a few seats at the bar, but other than that we’re pretty much ready to go. I did a little trial run with the place settings yesterday, these photos are the result of that. I’ve also left all glassware off the table because we’ll be setting up a couple drink stations for easy access throughout the day. Let the festivities begin!
One of the hardest decisions in terms of decor for the new house has hands down been selecting light fixtures. Because we have an open floorplan it sometimes feels like selecting furniture and decor is a giant puzzle. You don’t want anything to be too matchy-matchy but you also have to consider how everything will look together considering the dining room, entryway, living room, and kitchen are all within the same visual field.
