2012 Christmas Decor

I’m so excited to share with all of you a little peak into Christmas at our home! I’ve been slowly decorating over the past 2 weeks. But I got sick for a little while there and boxes of Christmas decorations just sat in my living room for days! I finally got around to finishing setting up the last of the Christmas decor today!

Though the hubby and I live in a tiny apartment, I do have a few areas I love to decorate. My absolute favorite area is my mantel! I’ve never had a fireplace before, none-the-less a mantel. This year I went with classic red and gold Christmas colors.

I also wanted to spend as little money as possible so I shopped my house and crafted a few projects along the way! I created my “Joy to the World” sign from red burlap and white muslin. The wood was simply the back of my “Harvest” mantel sign from this autumn. Then I used some of our old stockings and some ribbon I had on hand to create  a pretty little garland.

I filled one of my DIY Apothecary Jars with pine cones and some extra red ornaments. And I filled an old lantern with gold and red ornaments. I also decided to place my DIY Waterless Snow Globes  up on the mantel as well. A string of faux garland, a string of lights and a few candles and I was in business!

I already showed you our Glittery Christmas Card Display. The Christmas cards are starting to come in and they are being pinned up!

I also printed up some of my Christmas Chalkboard Printables. They add such a nice little pop of cheer in places that are hard to decorate!

The hubby and I set up our Christmas tree after Thanksgiving. But I finally got around to taking pictures of it this week!

We continued with our red and gold theme but also made sure to throw in a few sentimental ornaments as well! Just a few of them include the sparkly train {the hubby has loved trains since he was a kid!}, and the Santa ornament. The hubby and I bought that little Santa our first Christmas together. And, of course, there is my medical snow man that my mother-in-law bought me one year!

And of course, the best part of any Christmas tree… the glow of the lights! I had so much more planned for Christmas decor this year but I’m running out of time to do it all!

What’s your favorite part of Christmas decorating?

  1. Your home looks beautiful Talitha! One of these years I am going to update my decor to actually have it go together! Miss you!

  2. It looks gorgeous, darling! I love the colors! And you did a good job filling in that tree, you can see right through mine in too many places ;) I love the mantel sign too! So pretty!

  3. Hi, Merry Christmas to you and your family. I love your tree, it’s beautiful. Are those mason jars ,with the snow and trees, in them? That’s a great idea.
