Christmas front door decor

A Christmastime Home Tour.

Christmas front door decor
Added a new face to our annual front door pic!

I am still adding decor around our home as this year I had to embrace the concept of a slow advent. We did get a few rooms prepared to share our annual Christmas time home tour though! Come on in!

Living room christmas decor

I use the same decor every year not only because it saves time, space, and money, but the familiarity of it all is welcomed. It makes it feel more like home. The kids get sooooo excited to pull out decorations, and help us deck the halls. We managed to get 8 stockings hung on that fireplace this year!

Have you seen the old “Christmas in Connecticut”? It is a classic, full of odd old film quirks, but it’s an entertaining one nonetheless. My dad joked with me that I am like the modern day Elizabeth Lane. Blogging about home decor and tips while my house is actually a mess. ha! How true it is. So in full transparency, I took photos one room at a time, and the house hasn’t been all clean at once for more than ten minutes.

It was so fun to decorate Gabriel’s temporary room, which becomes the makeshift guest room. My sister is staying with us for Christmas so she gets the comfy bed, and candy cane mirror;)

Our last reno project of the year was this fireplace makeover. We didn’t get a chance to blog about it yet, but hopefully we can share more of the details on that soon. It has been a slow year on home projects as life with little ones, growing a baby, and newborn days needed to take priority. However, the projects we did tackle are ones that made such a difference on the look and feel of our home.

I hope to get up one last post of 2019, but we will be taking some time off with our kids. What a magical time of year it is through their eyes. It’s also bananas having them all home with extra energy and requires both parents’ full attention! All hands on deck. Wishing you a very special holiday season with your loved ones. We appreciate you all!

  • Chiara is such a squidge, I can hardly handle it!

  • The front door picture is so precious and fun. I’ll have to start that tradition this year with my daughter and then with her sibling who arrives next year! It will be hysterical (and probably bittersweet) as they enter their teens and adulthood. Enjoy your holiday and time off (??? hmmm is it ever with toddlers and babies?) with your beautiful family!

    • Hilarious! I might have to do the same! ha ha ha!

      • You have a beautiful family & I died at your cutest the elf on the shelf! love your cozy Christmas-filled home! You inspired me to get those cute glitter houses you shared a few weeks back and they’re so fun! I especially like your front door with the lanterns and trees and your whole fireplace look! Thanks for sharing both your home and heart!! Merry Christmas!

        • Adrienne – Thank you so much for the thoughtful and warm comment! Felling very grateful for little cherub Chiara. Hope your Christmas was wonderful!
