Hello Fiddle Leaf friends! Can you believe it’s already December?! 2018 just flew right by! Now that we’re rapidly approaching Christmas, several amazingly talented ladies and I have decided to do a Christmas Blog Hop showcasing our Christmas decor, DIYs, recipes, and general festivating with you! You can click to all of their pages at the end of this post!
As for me, I wanted to give y’all a tour of our downstairs Christmas decor (because the upstairs still looks semi-tornado-ish after returning from our trip to Oregon for Thanksgiving)! Oops! But you know, we live here. 😛 The downstairs though, is exactly as I pictured, a twinkly and cozy winter wonderland. And if I could give you one tip to make your Christmas decor extra magical, it’s to ramp up the twinkle – like TEN FOLD! Because you can never have too many twinkly lights!
I don’t have any littles right now, but I do know that when I was a kid, my mom made Christmas so incredibly magical – every room was decorated, we had multiple Christmas trees, and she always made an array of Christmas cookies. A big reason I decorate early and A LOT, is because it evokes that same feeling of magic in me now that I got when I was a kid back then. I can only hope to create that same feeling for my kids someday, so thanks mama!
But without further ado, here is this year’s Winter Wonderland Christmas Decor Home Tour!
And a little extra for ya – the newly renovated master bath:
And that’s it my friends! Before I go, I’ll leave you with a couple tips for decorating your own space for Christmas, wherever that may be:
- DO YOU. Do you like red? Go for it! Like pastels – me too! Honestly, decorate your home in the way that brings you and your family JOY, because that’s what the season is all about!
- Whatever style you ultimately choose, try to have a semi-cohesive theme throughout. That said, our kitchen is a bit more whimsical than the other spaces, and the family room has more red. But even with those differences, there are common items and themes (twinkle, pinecones, flocked greenery, buffalo check) that travel throughout, which really ties everything together.
- Add texture! This is my go to for EVERYTHING (see my Fall Decor Blog post with the same tip HERE) – the more texture you add to the space, the more cozy it will feel. And this is certainly the coziest time of year, am I right?!
- DO YOU!! SERIOUSLY! No matter the pretty photos you see or how much you love someone else’s decor, create a space that is YOU. And yes, I’m repeating it because it’s that important! With so much christmas inspiration out there, it’s easy to get lost in comparing our homes to others – but Christmas is about SO much more than that, so I just wanted to remind you again – make Christmas special for you and your family, whoever and wherever that may be, because that’s where the real magic lies <3
Sending y’all all the Christmas love!
