It Feels Like Christmas!!
Updated: Nov 16, 2022
I was going to write a "How to Decorate for Christmas" blog. But, I realized I do not follow many guidelines when decorating for the holidays. I use decorations I have collected over the years and run with what ever my artistic inspiration is telling me that day. I just cannot duplicate the same decor each year! If I walk through the room and say "I love that!" then it stays. If it has crystals, glitters and sparkles, bring it on! Join me for a holiday tour of my Historic Southern Home. I will add a few "How To" tips along the way...
My home has the nostalgia of my family's Christmas traditions and memories. However, you can incorporate any of these ideas and tips into your classic contemporary or modern farmhouse decor.
This Historic Southern Home has many fireplaces. You will see a few decorated for the Christmas season in the photos below. You may jump to the Brunch photos here, Dining photos here, and the Christmas tree photos here.
I use what I have and add natural pine sprigs, magnolia leaves, holly leaves and pinecones to bring the smell of Christmas into my home.
I start with garland on the mantle. Then add stems and ornaments.
Double hang wreaths on the outside and inside if you have a glass door. Designer Wreaths and Adjustable Metal Wreath Hangers can be found here.
The reason for the season.
This is the time of year to sparkle and shine! Bring out the silver and crystal. Create a magical decor for yourself, family and friends.
Hang crystal ornaments from the base of a candle to make your crystal candleholders more dramatic!
Ok, I know... This year's crush is Versace Prestige Gala fine china. Easy Holiday update by adding burgundy napkins and crystal napkin rings. Decorative Glass Platter with accent color in Christmas ornaments. The center piece platter and gold service/charger plates are hand painted with gold leaf on the edges. They are part of the Vietri Rufolo collection found here (#ad).
Elegant mirrored trays for the season....
Cut tree stems with wire cutters and insert individual pieces for easy application for tree topper.
We had an abundance of pecans this year! Be creative with your gift giving. Read "Easy DIY Christmas Gifting Ideas".
My favorite gift! Go to your local Humane Society and give a companion animal as a gift this season!
