Christmas Decor Ideas
I found this beautiful floor mirror at Hobby Lobby. Wait for their 50% off sale on mirrors, and it is a great deal!

Today I’m sharing a holiday home tour in hopes of inspiring you with some Christmas Decor Ideas.

Once Halloween is over, I begin pulling down all the holiday decor from the attic. If it is our year to host Thanksgiving, I leave the dining room fall but deck the halls everywhere else.

Christmas Decor Ideas

I bought this outdoor garland after Christmas several years ago. It was a fantastic price, lights up, and I hang in using rip ties.

The urns, lanterns, wreaths, and door garland are all from Balsam Hill. Their product is more pricey, but it lasts for years and is worth the investment.

I kept our dining room decor simple this year. I hung a couple of plain pine wreaths using black velvet ribbon and added a garland across the back of the buffet (which lights up).

I love my flameless battery taper candles and found the candle log centerpiece at Tuesday Morning.

For my office, I added a large Christmas tree to the front window. I bought some silk ribbon and added bows, and bulbs in gold, white, and various shades of blue. The larger pink bows are ornaments I found at Hobby Lobby.

I love having two trees in our living room. They aren’t exactly the size, so one of the trees sits on paint cans but you’d never know thanks to the tree collar (which is from Big Lots).

I added a green garland across the mantle from afloral and the stockings are from Kirkland’s.

I will share how I decorated the trees in our living room very soon.

In the kitchen nook, I added three wreaths I found at Joann’s and hung them from a thick, silky burgundy ribbon.

I love hanging my Lindsay Letters art every year, and you can find the Lamp Post and the Glory to God on her site.

Unique Christmas Decor

Today I’m sharing some simple but unique Christmas decor inspiration. I’m excited to be a part of the annual Holiday Home Tour organized by 11 Magnolia Lane and Evolution of Style.

At the end of this post, you’ll find 29 other bloggers sharing this holiday decor inspiration! If you’re stopping by from 11 Magnolia Lane, hello!

I decided to keep our Christmas decor simple this year and I added holiday artwork, faux greenery to the mantel, two trees, and a sweater-inspired rug.

If you want to learn more about my colorful Christmas trees you can go here. They’re not the traditional Christmas colors, but I love the lemons and the sophisticated fun they bring to the room.

Closer to Christmas, I will add these cute polka dot stockings. I found them at Hobby Lobby a few years ago.

You can find this gorgeous hand-lettered art here, and it comes in a large variety of sizes, colors, and framing options. Use code SINCERELY for 15% off!

I love the contrast between our light kitchen and the moodiness of the living room.

I’ve decided less is more this holiday season and am keeping our home festive but simple.

Merry Christmas from my family and don’t forget to visit This is Our Bliss.

Unique Christmas Decor Ideas

I realized I haven’t shared a holiday home tour this year and want to share our home in hopes of inspiring you with some unique Christmas decor ideas as you deck your halls.

In our living room, I kept it fairly simple but added lots of color to our Christmas tree (see more details on the tree here).

I switched out my floral artwork for this beautiful wintry scene – which will last well beyond the holidays!

I kept the mantel simple with garland and stockings I found at our local Meijer store.

The basket was thrifted, and I filled it with old glass ornaments.

I added some simple touches to our kitchen as well. My favorite thing to do is to fill glass containers with bulbs. I found a box of bulk gold ornaments at Big Lots.

I love collecting miniature faux pine trees. They are perfect for adding holiday touches throughout your home.

Near our stove, I added another faux pine tree and a glass globe of ornaments and garland over the doorway.

My goal is to make the house festive without feeling too cluttered.

I recently shared our dining room. This space works well from fall into the holidays, and you can find the tutorial for the fruit centerpiece HERE.

I also decorated our master bedroom for the holidays, and you can read all about that tomorrow!

Our library is also decorated, and I love putting a lit Christmas tree in the front of the house so it is visible from the street.

I talk about the blue and gold Christmas tree here and give tips for decorating trees.

The Merry Christmas sign is digital artwork I purchased and printed at Walgreens. I recently discovered that Walgreens can print poster-sized images!

I needed a rug to soften the space, so I stole this one from our upstairs home office.

How are you decking the halls this year?

Simple Christmas Decor

I am excited to be a part of the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas home tour as we share Simple Christmas Decor ideas.  I had to miss the fall blog hop because we were in the middle of a DIY kitchen remodel (to see more on that journey, go HERE)!

If you are here from Making Home Base, welcome!

With all the craziness of the kitchen remodel, my Christmas decor is pretty simple this year.

One of the two Christmas trees is in the family room along with some greenery on the mantel, stockings and a wreath.

The tree is filled with metallic neutral ornaments and little DIY santa photo ornaments.

I absolutely adore putting up these handmade ornaments every year.

The navy walls are new to the space this years and have changed the look of my holiday decor simply by changing the backdrop of the room.

In the kitchen nook, the DIY open shelves are a recent add to the DIY shiplap wall.

The shelves are filled with my kids’ santa pics through the years.  It is pretty obvious how special these photos are to me – I love how you can see them grow from year to year.

Unfortunately now that my 12-year-old is bigger than santa, I’m not sure how much longer the tradition of the pictures with santa will last…

Right off the kitchen, is a cute little hot cocoa bar.

I am a huge fan of my friend Cara’s chalkboard art of Word for Word Chalk Art.

Our second tree is in our library/music room.

This room was my home office, but the piano lost its wall during the kitchen remodel. The $50 painted piano was moved, and I feel so fancy calling the space the music/library room.

The dining room was decorated earlier this fall with greenery that works well for Thanksgiving as well as Christmas (go here to see more on the tablescape and wreaths).

The chalkboard name plates are also a creation by my friend Cara.

Thanks so much for taking the time to tour my home all (simply) decked out for the holidays! Go see Just a Girl and Her Blog for more holiday inspiration!

Dining Room Christmas Makeover

I’m excited to share my dining room Christmas makeover today. This post brought to you by At Home.

The content and opinions expressed below are that of sincerely, sara d..

  Decorating for Christmas Ideas  

My dining room now looks like a Christmas wonderland.

At Home Christmas Decor.  

Are you familiar with At Home?  It is the one-stop-shop for Christmas Decor – and the store where I found all my holiday decor.  (And they have much more than just Christmas decor.  They have enough stuff for you to design your entire house – every single room.) The Christmas section is unbelievable.  At Home has a separate section devoted entirely to artificial trees – 101 varieties.  And they have holiday decor – both indoor and outdoor. I filled my cart full of so many pretty things thanks to At Home’s everyday low prices.

At Home Christmas Decor Ideas

Here’s my supply list of decor items from At Home for my dining room:

  • Sparkling Tree Branches
  • Vintage Looking Ornaments
  • Fluffy Feather Bunches
  • Burlap Ribbon
  • Burlap Embellished Leaves
  • Pine Wreaths
  • Pine Mantel Swag
  • Pine Garland
  • Simple Candles
  • Ceramic Bowls

Here’s what my dining room looked like last week…

And if their Christmas collection could get any more amazing, At Home has 15 different decorative Christmas themes.  My personal favorites include Crystal Chateau:

And Lavish & Luxe:

Lavish & Luxe

I combined Crystal Chateau and Lavish & Luxe to create the perfect look for my dining room.  It has some natural elements with a touch of vintage and glam. On the table, I put feathers in the bowls and added the candles.  Pine garland, sparkling tree branches, and the embellished accents surround the three candles.

The mantle garland went on the buffet along with the embellished pieces and the ornaments.  I hung the wreaths with the burlap ribbon.

At Home offers plain wreaths as well as a large variety of decorated wreaths.

I am so in love with these vintage-looking ornaments.
