Since I already posted about my exterior holiday decorations, I thought it was time to give you a little tour of my interior all decked out for Christmas.
First up: The Formal Living Room
This is the room where we have set up the tree and open our presents on Christmas morning. My favorite part is the mantle:
It is done in silver and red, and features lots of great dollar store finds along with a few things I got on clearance at Ikea last year. The iced silver wreath on the mirror came from Home Goods after christmas last year and was only $8.
The kids and I glittered some pine cones for an added sparkle, and the lanterns were on sale after Valentine's day for $5 at Ikea.
All the ornaments came from the dollar store and fill thrift store vases I've been accumulating.
Just off the living room is the Dining Room:
I was able to snag a dozen live poinsettias on Black Friday for 99 cents each and they line the stairs.
The other side of the bannister is swagged with lit greens and features an old set of stockings that came from my husband's family
The more whimsical part of the house is the Family/Play Room:
This room is decorated with all the kid's favorite christmas things: Nutcrackers, gingerbread men and christmas books.
Our embroidered family stockings hang on this mantle
And the nativity is set up on the side board:
Even the display shelves in the Kitchen got a little Christmas-fied.
Lastly, I swagged the top of the kitchen cabinets to unite the space.
It definitely feels like Christmas! I know the kids think so.
