Here’s a quick tour of some of the holiday decor around our house. I didn’t go “all out” this year … I was just too busy. I kept it simple and also repeated some decor from last year.
The living room mantel is similar to last years’. I added fresh greenery (pine & cedar) as well as eucalyptus branches.
I usually decorate the family room in snowmen. This year, I added more red and a few more vintage ornaments.
I usually change out the plates and decor in the built-in cabinet for holidays throughout the year, but come December … I still had the summer plates displayed! I just added some red garland and a few ornaments.
I had planned to use more blue this year, but ended up only decorating a bathroom with blue and silver. There’s always next year!

We did get three Christmas trees up and decorated this year. The tall one in our living room is our standard tree with the kids’ ornaments. But this year, we added a small noble fir in our dining room (decorated in snowflakes) and a tiny one in our family room with bright, vintage ornaments.
I’ve posted some quick snapshots of Christmas vignettes throughout our home.

In our family room, we traditionally decorate with snowmen. Since my maiden name is “Snow”, I have collected snowmen and snowflakes for years.
