I am finally posting the rest of my holiday decor. I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season and are spending time with those you love. I am heading to San Francisco today. My son and daughter in law are treating us to a day and night in the city for my 65th birthday. Yep you heard it right, medicare here I come! Enjoy Christmas Around my House while I am out celebrating.
My mantle is always hard to photograph but this year in particular due to all the dreary weather. I gave a short tutorial on how to make a faux wreath look natural in my previous post here
On my coffee table, I filled my Mexican trencher with faux greens and pomegranates from my tree.FYI some of the poms are faux and some are real. Can you spot the faux ones?
I am decorating less and less every year. I am keeping the kitchen simple.
In the kitchen, I added some faux greens to the chandelier (it came out kind of wild and crazy but I just left it).
On the island is an antique trencher from Patine filled with pine cones, bay from my yard, foraged Osage oranges, pine cones, and faux berries & greens. If you add some natural elements to your faux, it is much prettier in my opinion.
I added three of my belsnickels and some bay to the counter next to the sink.
The coffee station got a vase of fresh greens because I can keep it filled with water.
In my (former game room-we still don’t know what to call it) I added two trader joe’s mini wreaths to a pair of antique shutters.
These mini wreaths are great. All I did was add some vintage ribbon, some bay from my yard and some faux red berries.
On the coffee table I added faux greens and fresh poms to an old french wood sink. My friend Debra from 5th and State “coerced’ me into buying it when she visited last year.
On the round table in the corner by the window rests a handmade Santa (made in Indiana many years ago and a gift from my now deceased mother in law). The fur was from an old stole of hers.
We eat most of our meals in this little corner of the room. The blue pottery is filled with faux greens and berries.
The lantern gets the same treatment along with the addition of a couple of bells.
Thank you for tagging along with me on my Christmas Tour. If you missed part one you can read it here. If you follow me on Instagram you saw my Christmas tags that I made this year. Many have you requested them so on Tuesday I will post my tree, my wrap, and downloadable gift tags. So if you haven’t figured out what to do for gift tags yet pop over on Tuesday!
