Christmas Tour of Homes

Welcome to the Christmas Tour of Homes!  Thanks for stopping by.
For those of you who are regulars, I'm participating in The Nester's Tour of Homes.  Go there and join in on the fun!

For those of you who are new, my husband and I just moved back home and into our new house.  So please forgive me because I may also talk about what I want to change in some of the pictures.  :)


First off when you come into our home you will see in our entryway our Willow Tree nativity set.  I try to add something to it each year.  This time around I will be adding the angel (haven't quite made it to the store yet).  
*Side note-  I will be changing the wallpaper in the background.  Please ignore.

Our dining room with fresh cut garland.  This is the first year that I did live garland.  It's so pretty but messy!  I'm still looking for that perfect table runner or cloth for this dining table.
*This room will be painted before Christmas.  Stay tuned.

I bought this little decoration last year and love it.  It even came with a stick so you can make it an outdoor decoration too if you wanted.

Our eat in kitchen.

Our decorated piano.  We still haven't hung anything on the walls because we still have to paint everything.  SO MUCH PAINTING!!

Our fireplace in our den.  One of the projects we are tackling in this room is installing a much needed mantle.

So since there was no mantle we had to improvise.  Our newly built entertainment center took on the job of hanging our stockings with care.  I added a little fresh garland here as well.

 These are just a few pictures of little decorations around the house.

You can't go without mistletoe!!

 I'm so excited about our Christmas tree this year!  We didn't have one for the past two years so I couldn't wait to get one for our new home.  There's just nothing like the scent of a pine tree filling up your home.

This year I finally purchased our tree skirt and it turned out so cute!

Our festive staircase.

And finally, our outdoor Christmas lights!  Next year, we plan to add lights to the second floor so it doesn't feel left out.  The hubs will finally have to buy that latter!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the tour.
