If you recall, I shared my Christmas Mantel Decor with you yesterday.
And today I am sharing my Christmas Home Tour!!!
And yes…Fruitcakes allowed. Ha! Most days I feel like a fruitcake myself. Love the pillow and was a fabulous find in an antique shop that I couldn’t pass up. Having some character in your design is definitely important.
However, this pillow isn’t the only one that I added to my collection for the holidays.
I kept some of my everyday pillows still out, I just had to mix in the Christmas ones. I wish I would have done a better job of taking a picture of the solid red one with the little bit of red/white stripe showing. I will have to do that later and add to the post.
In the meantime, the pillows don’t actually look that nice most of the time. Andreas complains that there are too many of them so they get tossed all around while he puts his feet up on the coffee table.
Its adorned with the Advent Wreath that I showed you how to do in a previous post.
And while relaxing on the couch, not only can we enjoy our mantel, but we can also admire Emma’s Tree.
Ok…maybe not “admire”. But it is fun to see her decorating skills. As you can see she originally hung them all in one spot. I was able to balance out and disperse them more evenly. That only really lasted a short time though before she played with them again. Too funny! I love her.
We have a family tree as well but it is not decorated as it is normally.
In fact, I should really be embarrassed that it looks so terrible. But this year we are celebrating Christmas in Germany and because I like a real tree and we still have to come back to Santa, I didn’t want to hang too many decorations for fear that it might not look so good when we returned. Next year it will be better and I will be sure to share! I wish I had a picture of last years. Definitely a good one.
I did hang the Retro Ornaments, although you can’t see them very well here.
I do love them and they look fabulous on the tree.
In order to put my tree in the foyer area, I had to move all of Emma’s stuff out of that space. You will have to check out the before In the Home Tour Entryway Post. And in place of the bookshelf and baby doll furniture, I hung the Advent Activities Calendar that I showed you how to replicate yourself.
And as you are standing in the Entryway, you have a great view of the Dining Room…my favorite Christmas Designed Space.
I love the Christmas Wall Design that I shared on the blog.
In the next week, I will also share with you, in more detail, the dining room table.
But for now, I will leave you with just a few more pictures of some accessories that I added to the overall design.
I love Christmas and I had a lot of fun decorating. Stay tuned for more.

Where will you be in Germany? I see you have one of those candle things? that the top will move? I want one of those, and should have bought one when we went. Maybe next time. I love the wreaths on the burlap wall plaques!!!
I will be just outside of Frankfurt. If they have any still left after Christmas out…I can pick one up. Given the circumstances, I probably won’t have the time to go shopping before Christmas. But I will look after. Just tell me max amount to spend. And thanks for the comments on my burlap wall designs. I love those myself.
Everything looks beautiful! I love your daughter’s tree. So sweet. Have a fun and safe trip to Germany!
Thanks Erin! I appreciate you stopping by and making such nice comments. And thanks…I am sure it will be fun. Just landed a bit ago. Have a fabulous Christmas!
