2015 Christmas Home Tour Part 1
Merry Christmas, Everyone!
John and I had so much fun decorating our new home for Christmas this year! Hope you enjoy these snap shots of our decorations. P.S. Grab some leftover pie – this is kinda long 🙂
This topper has lasted for 6 Christmas’! I just fluff it out every year. (Thank goodness for wired ribbon!)
I love this giant gingerbread candy cane ornament, it is one of my favorites to put on the tree.
The tree all lit up at night!
I’m obsessed with this nutcracker and metal light-up snow flake! They were the highlights of my mantle this year. I wish it was acceptable to keep this up all year long lol.
Snap shot of the bottom of the mantle. This box is an old ammo box that I found in my Dad’s garage and I filled it to the brim with Christmas goodness. I mean, what else would you put in an old ammo box?!
Above the entertainment center is always a hard spot to fill. It is so much space! An easy space filler is to wrap extra odd shaped boxes and add a pretty bow.
If you read the DIY centerpiece post earlier this month, then this pic should look familiar!
Right now we have a blank wall behind our dining table. We have big plans for that wall, but in the meantime, we just put this wreath up there to fill the space. I actually really liked the way it turned out!
I get to bust out these plates once a year! So, yes – I actually leave them out the table the whole month of December. I just can’t get enough.
The pictures do not do this justice. I love how this looked in person. The Santa Stop Here sign was on sale for $23 at target and was hands down the best Christmas piece I bought this year.
John really, REALLY wants a scooter. So, last year Buddy brought him a scooter for Christmas. John can live vicariously through the adventures of Buddy for awhile 😉
Snap of John’s Christmas village. He gets one new piece a year. I don’t know what we are going to do next year, we are running out of space!
Random dog pic – Lambeau is tuckered out from Christmas and asleep snuggling with his new Christmas baby.
Decided to throw our little family traditions in here. Our favorite Christmas movie is Prep and Landing. ( If you haven’t seen it – it is an adorable short 30 minute movie about elves that prep for Santa’s landing!) We have an ornament of Lanny and Wayne ( from the movie) and we take turns hiding the ornament through out the month for the other to find.
Thats the end of part 1! Stay tuned for part 2 of our Christmas Home Tour.
We would love to see pics of your Christmas decorations and hear about your family traditions! #ourmessytable on instagram or comment below!
