2017 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR PART 3: BREAKFAST NOOK, MASTER BEDROOM, KITCHEN, AND PATIO


I photographed the rest of my home last week (after finally putting on the last finishing touches!) and had planned to share the rest of my Christmas home tour with you before this point, but things like hosting parties, shopping, sneaking in some family time and other commitments took all of my time this past week... and I'm not complaining one bit!  However, sorry it's only a few days from Christmas and I'm just now completing my tour of our Breakfast Nook, Master Bedroom, Kitchen, and Patio.   If you missed them, you can catch Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

This is somewhat of a monster post since it's everything that I haven't shown you yet, so I'll just let you scroll and enjoy the photos.  I'll provide some sources here and there, but if you have any questions that I haven't addressed please ask in the comments.

CHRISTMAS PHOTO BOOTH BACKDROP WITH PAPER PARTY FANS


Over the weekend my family helped me put together some photo booth backdrops around our church for families to use this Christmas season.  For the past few years there have been several stations set up around the church for people to stop and take photos with friends and family, I think it's such a great idea!  I always like to share decor for church events with you here, too, because I know several readers like to adapt these ideas for their church.  However, most of them can also be adapted for party decor or even switched for different holidays or birthday parties if you work with the basic theme idea and just change the specifics or colors according to your occasion.

PRACTICAL STOCKING STUFFER IDEAS


December is quickly flying by, did you get a lot of shopping done this past weekend?  We made a pretty good dent in our lists but still need to finish up some odds and ends.  One thing that always takes a bit of extra effort is finishing up stocking stuffers.  We do stockings for everyone on both sides of our extended families, so it's always a challenge but ends up being fun seeing what things we can come up with.  I like to buy practical stocking stuffers, items that everyone needs day to day but aren't really fun to spend money on when you're buying them yourself.  And, a few of these suggestions are even better because they're practical AND cute!

2017 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR PART 2: ENTRY AND DINING ROOM


Hello everyone, welcome to Part 2 of my Christmas home tour today!  I'm so happy to be sharing my Entry and Dining Room with you as a part of the Simply Christmas Home tour, hosted by the lovely Randi of Randi Garrett Design and Jennifer of Decor Gold Designs.  If you've found your way here via Life on Virginia Street, nice to meet you!  Sarah is such a sweet heart and I always enjoy her beautiful tours. I'm loving her pops of Emerald Green in today's tour, and every time I see her "O Holy Night" canvas I'm determined to find a spot to add one of my own!

I've had so much fun injecting bursts of Christmas color into every nook and cranny... come on in and take a peek!  If you're new here today, my style is fairly traditional, but I love to use bold colors and mix and match patterns.  I have no idea what to label my "style," if I like something I add it in!

I also enjoy keeping an eye out for second hand pieces that might work in my home.  I appreciate the quality that older pieces bring, the collected feel of different pieces, and generally the bargain price that comes along with them!  My Entry houses an old dresser that I painted and a large mirror scored from Craigslist.  This space usually changes season by season and it's a fun spot to change things up.

2017 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR PART 1: PORCH AND LIVING ROOM


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  I've been busy decking the halls and am so thrilled to share my Porch and Living Room for Part 1 of my Christmas Home Tour with you today.

I want to start off by thanking Marty of A Stroll Thru Life for organizing this week's tour.  These tours are always a good opportunity to find new bloggers to follow and glean many new seasonal ideas.  For those of you visiting from Life Love Larson, welcome!  I'm so glad you're here!  Andrea's classic, chic style is a joy to take in and I know you enjoyed her Christmas tour.

If you're a new reader, let me take a moment to introduce myself. I'm a wife and mom of two teens- a boy and a girl- living in Edmond, Oklahoma (I'm a proud born and raised Okie!). My husband is a Southern Baptist Minister, and although I have a degree in Education and taught 3rd grade in the early years of our marriage, since having children I have stayed home to care for them. Although I have no training and consider it just a hobby, I've always had a love for decorating and started blogging about our home over 6 years ago. You'll quickly see that I love color, mixing patterns, and making over unusual pieces, many of which are second hand. It's also readily apparent that I show no restraint in my Christmas decorating... after all, we're celebrating the biggest birthday of them all!  


So, curl up in a comfy chair with a warm drink and enjoy our virtual home tour today.  Let's start at the front porch!
