Ahhhh Christmas time! I’ll be honest… I’m not a Grinch, but in years past when Christmas time would roll around, I’d get my fill of seeing Christmas decorations up at everyone else’s home. I had no desire to decorate, only because I would stare at it for a month and think about how I had to take it all down in 30 days. Anyone with me?

Well, this year it was a little different. We moved in to a new home, and my husband was asked by a friend if we would participate in a local charity benefit that involved opening up our home to a “Holiday Home Tour.” My dear husband didn’t hesitate with the answer yes, but then later realized that most people wanted to see houses decked out in holiday décor! Eeeeek!

So… I called a local florist and asked if they could help! They knew exactly what I was looking for, and they instantly made my life a lot easier than what I was expecting. I just explained my “taste” to them, told them that I was in LOVE with white and silver trees, sent them pictures of things I’ve seen that I’ve adored, and viola! My house was decked out in “Christmas,” in no time! 🙂

So… why waste it! I thought I’d share with you all the lovely Christmas décor that I get to stare at until January! 🙂

The tree was LOADED with pine cones, snowflakes, silver beads, icicles, white & silver ornaments, and even a few little white fluffy birds.

My favorite part… the staggered trees at my front entry! They are absolutely breath taking, and it’s the first thing you see when entering.

All year long, I fill these shelves with pictures frames, and anything that says, “welcome to our home.” But at Christmas time, I yanked all of that off and stuffed it full of Christmas décor and our kids art work.

For each holiday, I get on my pinterest board, “Printables,” and see what I have! I change it up every year, and this year, “Baby, it’s cold outside,” was completely “fitting,” for the weather we were having.

Since I’m a “party thrower,” I have an abundant supply of cake stands, and all kinds of glass “goodies.” So I filled a few cake stands with ornaments and staggered them around the house. Simple, classy, and beautiful!

Would you believe last year, Santa sent my son a letter from the North Pole? I make sure to sit that out and show it off every year! 🙂

If you follow me, you probably saw my post the other day about our new stockings, and our fireplace mantel decorations! Could this be my favorite part of the Christmas décor in our house? Well maybe…

Now we also had a “kiddo” tree in our playroom, but I won’t expose you to that mess of toys just yet. Soon I’ll be giving a home tour, {as promised} and will make sure to show you a CLEAN and ORGANIZED playroom.

Did I mention that the Holiday Home Tour was cancelled due to snow and icy weather? Haha! Figures right? Oh well, the décor came in super handy with all of our Christmas parties this year.

Thanks for coming on my “Holiday Home Tour today!

    Everything looks so festive and beautiful! I feel a little guilty because I took down all (inside and outside) Christmas decorations today. But I did put up all my snow stuff for January!

    I love your christmas tree a lot. I wonder how you keep all of the decoration. I always have a problem in storing all of the Christmas decoration.

    1. Jessica says:

      Thank you! Actually, since I had to have someone come decorate my house in a hurry, they furnished all of the décor! So I don’t have to store any of it! Yippee! 🙂

  4. I love the simplicity of your design. The stockings are great as well! That has to be a lot of fun to be a show home!

    1. Jessica says:

      Whew! It takes a lot of work to have a home on a house tour! Thank goodness I had someone help me with it, or I would have never gotten it done! 🙂

  6. That settles it! I have to do a Christmas home tour on the blog next year! I’ve been loving seeing how everyone decorates their home for the festive season! Thank you for sharing yours! 🙂
