Since you know I love Christmas I thought I would give you a special tour of my house. When I had Charlie almost three years ago, I decided to re-vamp my Christmas collection. I wanted my Christmas decorations to be fun ( so you knew a child lived in this house), and keep the classic vintage look I love so much. I am proud to say that I pulled this off! Take a look inside my house and let me know what you think.
My lovely Aunt Geri made me these wreaths on our front doors. The red and white sets the tone for what you will see inside.
This fun train has a third piece which did not make it into the picture. It reminds me of something you would see in a Dr. Seuss book. It is also metal which means Charlie can play with it anytime.
The main dining room table, I chose to do in more untraditional Christmas colours. The purple, teal and gold arrangement has been used for the last few years. I just love how it sparkles under the light.
Who else does not have chimney? This fun Santa key is on our staircase letting guests know that Santa will still be coming chimney or not.
This table always seems to have flowers on it, but for Christmas these silver trees in a cluster look fabulous. On the other end, I have my favourite salt and pepper shaker Santa and Mrs. Claus. These were a gift from a student over ten years ago and the family knew I had a bit of a salt and pepper collection.
A mantle is a centrepiece in any home. Stockings are hung with care in my house waiting to be filled with goodies. You can get a sneak peek of the tree in these pictures.
My Christmas tree is trimmed in red and white. These colours are so classic, and every year I seem to get another small ornament to add. I think the large ornaments are so fabulous and fun. You can see that there are ornaments Charlie has made, and I believe it is so important for these to be shown. Charlie loves to see his own creations on the tree.
My small dinette table in the kitchen also has red and white as it's centrepiece. I bought these styrofoam decorations from Target, these were a great find.
I hope you loved getting a peek into my house for the holidays. What are your favourite decorations? Leave me a comment and let me know.
