2017 Christmas Tree & Fun Christmas Decor Tour

2017 Christmas Tree & Fun Christmas Decor Tour

Merry Christmas, everyone! Here’s a little look at some of my favorite

items in this years Fun Christmas Decor Tour!

With 2 little guys in the house, our Christmas style tends to be simple, soft, and fun! I’m loving pops of red, blue, and green this year. The style just seems to fit in with our home. Especially in the Living Room. I’m loving those blue walls with the pops of red. How about you? Today, I’m sharing our Fun Christmas Decor Tour with you!

This is the first year we decided to go with a fake tree. Real is prettier, but fake is so much easier. I can’t say I miss cleaning up all those needles and constant watering. Plus, I was so afraid that water would get on the carpet that we kept the live tree in our tiled foyer.

So, fake tree meant we finally got to have ours in the Living Room. I love being able to see it throughout the day. And Christmas morning will be a lot more comfy and cozy in that room. I want you to picture the last 4 Christmas’s spent opening presents on a cold tile floor. It’s practically something out of Oliver Twist, right? 😉

Anyway, we love the new tree in it’s new spot! But, the only downside is for you. The awesome people who stopped by to see these pictures. We popped that tree in front of 2 windows. Which makes for really bad lighting for pictures. So, I’ve done my best with the photography in this post. I hope you can still see what we love about our Christmas Tree and the rest of this fun Christmas Decor Tour!

The bright light shining behind the tree makes it hard to photograph. But we love letting the neighbors see the lights through the windows.

We’re lucky, our mantle is a stunner all on it’s own. It was definitely one of the first things I loved about this house. But add my DIY Yarn Tassel Garland, some greenery, and all of this fun decor; and it becomes extra amazing!

All 4 of these were too irresistible this year. Those cute birds are just 2 of the 10, or so, styles. They even have individual names on tags around their ankles. Adorable! And the soft fabric embroidered tree just looks great with that cute and fun snowman and those little birds.

I love this galvanized metal house. An awesome find from the JoAnna Gaines Collection at Target. I popped in these cool little rattan ball lights from Amazon for extra fun and style.

I scored these fun little wood house place card holders for just $3. Another find from the JoAnna Gaines collection at Target. You can download those Christmas printables for free on my site too.

I love that blue and red. That brown woven felt basket on the hearth is another recent score at Target. It’s super sturdy, soft, and full of charm, right?!

This 7 foot tall Virginia Pine Unlit Christmas tree is so pretty. It’s nice and full with a very realistic finish. It actually has 3 different styles of branches mixed together. I think that gives it extra interest and texture that other fake trees don’t usually have.

That white Jingle Bell is a set of 12 I have scattered around the tree. I love their classic Farmhouse style. The bird ornament is a Target find from a year or 2 ago. You can also see the Upcycled Christmas Card Ornaments I made with my oldest last year.

Here’s one of my favorite parts of this Fun Christmas Decor Tour. Every year, we pick a photo of the boys to turn into an ornament. Another sweet tradition to help us remember them growing up. The grandparents always get a copy as a gift too. The reindeer tag is another of the Upcycled Christmas Card Ornaments.

Last week, I shared my Quick & Easy Christmas Ornaments for Kids to Make. This little guy is covered in tiny buttons I found at Hobby Lobby.

A Fun Christmas Decor Tour wouldn’t be complete without a vintage camper or truck, right?! This little camper was part of a cool set of vintage red vehicles sold at Target. I used the little Red Truck to make a Fun & Easy DIY Red Truck Christmas Centerpiece.

This totally adorable snowman got promoted to the top of the tree this year. Our old star was too heavy for this fake tree. But this guy was already star-shaped. So, up he went and I’m kinda glad. He’s way cuter than that old star.

Our Kitchen got a lot touch of Christmas too. A grape vine wreath wrapped in berries, Santa, and this banner from the Target Dollar Spot make the kitchen feel extra special. You can see more of my Kitchen in my Full Kitchen Remodel Reveal Post.

Well, that’s the end of this Fun Christmas Decor Tour. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  7. Very pretty tree! We do fake as well. Happy holidays!! Visiting from Pretty Pintastic Party.

  8. Your tree and mantle decorations were a breath of fresh air amongst the many very ornate trees and mantles this season (guilty as charged)! I love seeing a different look, and the simple and elegant styling is very festive while not being overbearing. You have so many special elements worked throughout the design such as the rattan ball lights in the galvanized house.
