OUR HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

This is our first Christmas here in our new home. It's been such a fun experience to "Deck the Halls". The kids have a fun tree in the family room while in the living room I wanted to fancy things up a bit and do something I've always dreamt of... a white, silver & burlap Christmas tree.

I pinned a few trees I love on Pinterest & showed them to my dear friend, Lanae, who just so happens to be the Christmas tree queen! Who knew?

 

 

This was my inspiration!

So, we've spent the last few days shopping around different stores. She helped me pick out tons of decorations and together we selected the most beautiful selection of ornaments. She is pretty much a miracle worker!

We got to work putting it all together this afternoon.

We chose a wide burlap ribbon paired with an even wider mesh silver sparkly ribbon {found at Hobby Loddy} to create some movement down the tree. I love the large ornaments, these chunky white snowflakes are my favorite!  We ALMOST didn't get them.  They have a rope lining the edges on the other side but we just turned them around.  Great find from Home Goods!

Did you see that? The amazing white feather tree skirt?   I found it at Hobby Lobby!   If you know me, you know feathers mean so much to me. So this tree skirt is more than just beautiful, it reminds me we are surrounded by angels! What better time of year to constantly be reminded than now.   

 

 

I found the big twig star at the top at Pier 1.   It's meant to be a wall decoration but it worked well for our tree!

Then, of course, the stocking were hung. These white knitted stockings with thick fur trim look so beautiful hanging on my fireplace mantle.  I found them at Michaels.

I'm telling you, she's magic! Lanae whipped out her amazing handwritten script on the chalkboard, 'Oh Holy Night'!  I love how it turned out!

White, silver & gray Christmas pillows to dress up the couches...   I already had the two striped pillows, just in a different part of the house.

I love these silver sequin pillows.  I found this one at Hobby Lobby.

And the gold jingle pillow is from Pier 1.  The knitted fur trim pillow is from Hobby Lobby.   

 

 The bookshelves all have a little bit of Christmas magic as well.  Most everything was a Hobby Lobby find!

Added a little holiday centerpiece from Michael's to the coffee table ...

... and found this white feather throw at Pier 1 for the chair.  The pom pom pillows are from Pier 1 as well.

I love little splashes of Christmas cheer scattered throughout the home. Here we added some pine & white tree garland to compliment the Merry Christmas chalkboard art.   I found it at Hobby Lobby!   The little tree garland is one of the few things I had before.

I absolutely love our home for the holidays!
