It’s our 1st year at home for Christmas; we couldn’t be any more excited! The tunes are playing, candles are burning, and the fridge is stocked! Now all we’re waiting for is family to arrive and more presents wrapped under the tree.
Here’s a peek into some of my favorite scenes in the house.
Come on in!
Santa making his way through a snow-covered forest – ideal for a sofa table.
Tiny twinkle lights that almost glow. Selected his/her ornaments. She likes cupcakes. He likes hotdogs + wedding ornaments that remind us we’re the perfect “pair” (pear).
The old mirror into chalkboard routine. Remember THIS? Decided to bring it back again this year. Depending on the day, the saying may change. Oh so fun!
Candy cane and pinecone garland serves as a festive backdrop to holiday dining. Table kept simple and fresh – pine, cranberries, and seasonal pears (our favorite snack).
Oversized mugs rest on the windowsill for easy access. (you never know when a hot cocoa craving may kick in).
A trunk in lieu of a coffee table – topped with classic Christmas stories and still-unnamed-elf who makes sure no boys (big nor little) are getting into candy when they shouldn’t… wink wink.
Peppermint sticks, a toy solider, and reindeer – top our small secretary desk.
Snow globe terrariums present a magical wintery scene at the top of the stairs.
Festive sheets, yet another reindeer, and candles used for reading stories in bed with grandparents.
The view from the guest bedroom looking into the nursery. A natural woodland themed tree makes for the perfect place to play.
The main reason we decided to put a tree in the nursery – for reading bedtime stories as a family.
Flora and fauna that make the Master Suite whimsical and festive.
A fresh seasonal arrangement that brightens my reading nook.
The nativity that reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas while keeping watch over our little ones.
