Holiday Home Tour 2016

old-world-christmas-mantleTis the season for snugly sweaters, hot chocolate, and Holiday Home Tours! I’m number 3 on this blog hop, so make sure to check out Moriah’s gorgeous apartment, Megan’s place, and then stay tuned for different homes all week! Now, onto our humble abode…

Despite the madness that is the holiday season, and preparing for baby Rossi (1 month to go!), I’ve managed to get everything decorated on time this year. Nothing like a little home tour to get you moving!

The first thing to come out every year is the Willow Tree Nativity Set. It’s all I can do to not leave it out all year long! It’s my favorite Christmas piece and I love watching it grow little by little each year.

Remember when I whipped up these cozy pillows last year? They are the perfect pairing with the Christmas quilt that my mom made me!

I layered some greens, a clearance cotton wreath, and some frosty poinsettias to make this adorable coffee table centerpiece.

I’m a sucker for the simplicity of these kraft paper deer and their little berry garlands!

A robust garland of greens and shining ribbons accompanies you as you make your way upstairs.

I always have an abundance of ideas for the mantle each year. This time I decided to do lots of layers and I’m liking where it’s headed…

Recognize this lovely little stocking?

In the kitchen, I brought in just a hint of winter to accent my great grandmother’s dishes.

The hints of blue flow right into the dining room. If you haven’t noticed yet, I seem to be a little in love with the whole flowers-covered-in-snow deal…I just think it makes for such beautiful muted tones!

Little Christmas ornaments make for such fun and affordable decorations!

I even found a spot for my Poinsettia Placemats! What a fun tutorial that was last Christmas—be sure to check it out if you missed it.

And no table is complete without my half-circle napkins…loving the metallic fabrics in this one!
