My Home for the Holidays

The halls have been decked and the stockings are hung so here’s a look at what the inside of my home looks like this Christmas!
I’m linking up with Jen, Caroline and Natalie for their Home for the Holidays link up.

If you were to walk in my front door the first thing you’d see would be the tree. It’s a fake, pre-lit Christmas tree that my parents gifted to me the first Christmas I had my own home. It’s just a little guy, but I love it.

The angel on the right was a gift from my aunt many years ago. My sister, Kayli, has a matching one.

The tree is decorated in red and silver balls. The gold star matches the gold and red tree skirt that belonged to my mother in law. There are also a few random ornaments the hubs and I have collected over the last couple of years. A couple of handmade beaded snowflakes from a past coworker friend, stockings I made for Penny and Pandy (our dogs) and my favorite, our wedding ornament. I received it as part of a review last year.

If you were to look to your left you’d see the other little Christmas tree. It was my very first tree when I went off to college. Back then I decorated it in pink ornaments, but now I have red ornaments and red chile peppers (nod to NM, where I’m from!) that my nana gave me to dress up my little tree.

To your right is my Christmas mantel. It includes my Santa count down to Christmas, the boot stockings I made for me and the hubs last year, a few little Christmas nick knacks like this snow globe and my Precious Moments nativity set. The candles were a craft from last year as well.

Did you know that I’m a Scentsy Consultant?! That might help explain the various Christmas themed Scentsy warmers you’ll find around my house. One in the living room and a couple in the kitchen. Those don’t include the ones that stay out year round…

You’ll find a few more nods to the Christmas holiday if you were to keep glancing about including on the coffee table, side table and TV.

Since you’re still standing in the front door…. my apologies, where are my manners!?! Won’t you sit down? 😉 But before you do, a quick turn back to the front door shows a fabric wreath that my mom made, a pink Santa hat and the Christmas card holder I made two years ago.

Shout out to my blog girl, Nicole! Thanks for the Christmas card two years running! 😉 Hoping to get a few more up there in the coming weeks.

Now if you’d like, you can take the Christmas tour from last year, but you’d have dejavu… They’re basically the same plus a fresh coat of paint on all the walls. 😉 Maybe it’s time for a few new Christmas crafts and decorations.

Do you stick to a single theme with your Christmas decorations? Do you have a favorite decoration???

  1. I LOVE the Just Married ornament. I soo wish I had one after I got married! Darn it. Looking good and festive 🙂

      I need to find the little veil that goes on it… It must’ve fallen off in the decorations box. 😉 Sometimes I want to go out and buy some fun new ornaments and then I remind myself that we can gather them as we go and it will be more fun and meaningful.

  2. Yay for the stockings on the mantle! I would totally join on that tradition if we had a fireplace. Also, I love your coffee table.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      That’s my first mantle ever! I love decorating it all year long! But stockings can be hung anywhere… 😉

  3. Oh, wow! Your home looks wonderful! I am W A A Y behind this year! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

      Thanks Marci!! I got a jump start and got everything out the first weekend of December. Couldn’t wait any longer! 😉

  4. Everything looks wonderful! Such gorgeous trees! Love that you still put up the small one – cute chili peppers!

      Thanks Heidi!!!! Not nearly as classy as your decorations, but still fun! 😉

  6. Your wedding ornament is so precious. Love your boot stockings! Your tree is so pretty and you have presents wrapped! I better get going on my wrapping. We have lots of trees and snowman throughout our home. That seems to be our theme. My style of decorating has evolved over the years. This year I’m all about white and sparkly. Thanks for the tour Kassi!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Thank you thank you Laurie!! The boot stockings were a labor of love! I designed the pattern and everything! 😉 I’ve been seeing some of your new snowmen and what not as the month progresses… I need to get cracking on some new things!

  7. This is such a fun idea, and I LOVE your Christmas decorations – those stockings are so fun!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Thanks! Made them myself! 😉 This year I haven’t made anything new… so I’m focusing on baking to try to feel less like a slacker… haha
