I want to share a few photos of my Christmas Decor for 2016, with tips on how we made our home festive by using much of what we had and staying on a budget.
It’s almost here~time to start thinking Christmas decor!!! I plan all of my decorating the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I like to be done (or mostly done) before Thanksgiving so that I can relax and not be stressing about it on Thanksgiving Day.
These photos are from our home last Christmas. This year, my decor will be much lighter and whiter. The house has had some updates, so the Christmas 2018 pics will look a bit different. I’ll use some of the decor in these photos but am adding some new items as well.
For those who are like I am~you love to shop others’ looks~I’ve linked to what I’ve bought for Christmas decor last year and this year.
Christmas trees: We have faux trees, and I am thrilled with them. Being able to put them up and enjoy them for a full month is more important to me than having a fresh one. I have a Balsaam Hill 9 foot in the entry foyer and a 7ish foot flocked in my dining room.
I decorate my tables and leave them this way during the entire holiday. Since I do use them for entertaining, I always have seating for 16 (two tables of 8).
Dining Room Buffet:
The mantle will be updated next year, using mostly live greenery.
Tables in den:
Lisa did a simple spray of greenery with ribbon. I didn’t have any filler or foam, so she had to work with what I had on hand. I think it looks great, though!
I hope you enjoyed seeing my rooms. If you have pics of your decorated spaces, please send them to me; I’d love to include them in this post! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
