12 Days of Holiday Homes

Today we kick off our 12 Days of Holiday Homes! 

Each day for the next 12 days we’ll have different home decor bloggers sharing their homes all spruced up for the holidays. 

You'll be seeing my home featured on Dec 11th :) I can't wait to share bits of my Christmas Decor. This year you may see a little bit less than in years past as I have the opportunity for Better Holmes and Gardens to come and photograph my home this Christmas season in preparation for their publication in 2017. But I promise to share as much as I can! My master bedroom is definitely my favorite room in the house this year! 

Today’s first two features are Jenny from Evolution of Style {who is also our tour co-hostess} and Amanda from Dixie DelightsStop on over to both their blogs to see images of their beautiful holiday decor!

In the meantime here is a sneak peek of what you will see in my home :) 

Tuesday 12/13
This year the holiday home tour has been graciously sponsored by Lynch Creek Farm. You will see their beautiful wreaths throughout all the homes being featured. Be sure to visit them to see their gorgeous holiday floral designs, their fresh greenery also makes lovely gifts.

How to Decorate a Christmas Tree


It's the first day of the Christmas Season,  So I thought I would share my tips on decorating a Christmas Tree! I shared these tips last year at The Pinners Conference. Hope they help!
Happy Decorating!!!

1. FILLER - Picks, sprigs and/or berries - scattered throughout the tree, going in the direction of the branches.

2. THE BIG STUFF - Fill in the tree with Largest Items you want on the tree…Huge Bulbs, Signs, etc. Use wire or heavy branches to make them stay in the tree. Don’t be afraid to push these items deep into the tree. Bend branches and/or wire to hold them in place. This will create depth.

3. GROUPS - Group the Ornaments. This step creates interest. Wire 2-3 random ornaments together. Be aware of color, pattern and size. Layer these towards the middle and outside of the tree branches.

4. RIBBON - Decide on your ribbon style. My personal favorite is 3 loops with long tails or looping the ribbon in and out vertically.

5. FINISH - Finish the tree with your remaining Ornaments.  Use single ornaments to fill in the empty spaces and the tips of the tree.

6. THROW IT DOWN - Use a throw a blanket down as a tree skirts. Tree skirts to me can look a bit flat. You can gather and fold to create interest on the floor with a pretty throw. You are also not limited. Any throw or blanket will work.
