Surprise!

A secret that I’ve been keeping for too long can now be shouted from the rooftops.

I am one (#17 to be exact) of the 25 homes on the amazing Jennifer Rizzo Holiday House Tour.  I am so excited not only to show you around my home but to be amongst a great group of Bloggers who are opening their doors this Holiday season.

If you’re new here, you just headed over from the house tour by Vanessa of At the Picket Fence.  Wasn’t it amazing?!  She has a beautiful home and opened her doors for all to see in the Creating a Meaningful Home series earlier this year.  She is just the sweetest person ever!

Ok, well let’s get this tour started.  Are you ready?

Welcome.  Grab a cup of coffee (or tea, if you prefer) and stay awhile.  Let me show you around.

The new addition to this year’s Christmas decor is our new white Christmas tree.  Wanting to have a bling, bling pretty tree, this new beauty sits in the blue room, a.k.a. my office / family room.  With the dark hue on the walls, the white tree with varying shades of gold & brown ornaments, is the perfect contrast.  This room is a favorite of mine in our home because of all the light that comes shining through from dawn to dusk.  The filtered light accents the golds + my new disco ball just right!

The coffee table got a quick festive makeover by using a round mirror as the centerpiece topped with a montage of Christmas favorites – gold trees, ornaments, the light turned vase that I created earlier this year, and of course Santa.

Also on the coffee table is my newly created Nate Berkus knock-off wood block candle holder.  What do you think?  I love how it adds so much height to the vignette.

Transitioning to the dining room, I used a few similar ideas by using another mirror – the clock turned mirror – as the dining room centerpiece topped with more gold trees (that I scored from the Christmas Tree Shop last year) and a small tree adorned with miniature ornaments.

Simply, but elegantly set, our Christmas table is filled with a whole lotta candles – one of my favorite items to decorate with.

The buffet is set with treats for all to enjoy.  As I shared earlier in the week, the sidebar / buffet in the dining room is filled with varying sized glass jars, ceramic houses, and other festive decor.  My favorite element of the space is the charlie brown tree with colorful ball ornaments.  Okay, well it’s really not really a charlie brown tree, but instead branches from my backyard put into a glass jar to bring height to the overall space.  It would make a great table centerpiece too.

Also in the dining room is my kids favorite part our home tat the Holidays, the Christmas Countdown Tree that I made using pallets and leftover scraps of wood.  It’s such a whimsical, colorful handmade creation!

Heading over to the last space in our home, the living room.  Our hang out space…

And there is a peak at our other Christmas tree…  The tree that is filled with our family’s sentimental ornaments that we’ve collected, made, and bought over the years.

The main wall of the living room features our mantel and it’s totally decked out for the Christmas season.  A large wood panel is set as the backdrop with my newly created vintage-inspired  J-O-Y sign as the focal point.

Other pretty festive elements adorn the fireplace and the creme de la creme are the felt + dropcloth Christmas stockings that I made a few years ago.

Another handmade element that we love + adore is the Christmas Card Holder where we treasure and enjoy all the cards and photos that family and friends send throughout the Christmas season.  How do you display cards sent to your family?

Well that’s the end of the tour.  I wish it wasn’t over, but I really hope you enjoyed our home decorated for Christmas.

    Love how your Christmas decorations compliment your decor Jenna! Everything looks fantastic. Your advent calendar and Christmas card holder are precious! Also love the white tree with copper and gold against your navy blue wall.

      Thanks so much Luci! This white tree I scored at Walmart for $40 – it was a great deal and was A LOT less than others that I saw in the same size range. After Christmas sales might also be a great time to get your something you love. Thanks for your kind thoughts! xo Jenna
