My 2016 Christmas Decorations
Christmas is right around the corner so I thought it was time I finally got around to sharing my Christmas decorations with you this year.
They aren’t anything over the top. I’ve probably decorated with the same decorations for quite a few years throwing new things in every so often and slightly changing a thing or two up but I am totally cool with it!
So here is a quick tour of our main decorated spaces.
I placed my two miniature trees in our kitchen decorated full ornaments we’ve made as a family.
I found this cute felt advent calendar at Target last year and bought it after the holidays when it was on crazy clearance. I hung it in our kitchen the and Miss P loves moving the candy cane every day. I also wrapped Christmas books as an advent to go along with this that one of the girls unwrap each night and we read it before bed time.
Moving into the dining room I placed a blanket, some pillows, and Christmas books on our window bench.
I also found this table cloth at Target at the end of season last year and decided to use it on the table this holiday. I then set the table with some basic white china and on some rustic wood chargers.
I placed some garland in the center of the table with some glittery pine cones, candles and my ceramic kissing angels.
I decorated our buffet with my large JOY letters, a fun reindeer and a Santa.
Above the window bench I hung up some colorful snowflakes from the ceiling and strung some garland on the windows.
I changed up all the decor in the corner crates in our dining room with seasonal items.
In our living room I switched up my faux mantle a little this year.
Of course our stockings are hung there and I draped it with some lighted garland again but this year I had metal Nativity to place on top. I bought the white trees yet again at Target end of season last year and placed those behind the Nativity in the garland. I then made the sign to place above the mantle.
Some easy decorations on one of the end tables that are ok for the girls to mess with a little.
Some other fun decor on another end table. I bought the fun tree this year at Target and even bought a second slightly smaller one, then got the little dome from Joann’s last year after Christmas. The girls love to play with the tree and turning the dome on to watch the colors change.
And finally here is our tree. I changed up the ribbon a little this year and Travis built the tree stand but other than that, it is close to the same as previous years.
I have collected these ornaments for many years. Some are from my childhood, many are fun ones I’ve found, then there are the ones that are the girls and it all comes together.
There are a few other decorations throughout the house, like the girls have trees in their rooms that they got to decorate themselves and there are a few other things here and there but that is the large majority of our decorations.
I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas!
