Christmas is only 4 days away so I thought I’d better share some of our home’s holiday decorations before Christmas has come and gone!
The past few years, I’ve adorned our tree and living room with primarily white, gold and silver decorations. This year I wanted to add in some red and give our home a little bit more of a whimsical feel for the kids. The trio just turned four (!) this month and are really excited about Christmas, so I wanted to make our home suit their taste and not just make it pretty for my sake.
To give the room a more kid-friendly vibe, I swapped out the kids’ white stockings for knit ones from Target and added scrapbook tags with the kids’ initial on them.
I also made a red & white “believe” sign to bring in some more red.
The lanterns were purchased from Ikea last year and spray painted red.
I found this great red and white striped bin on clearance after Christmas last year at a flea market. It is the perfect book bin to hold all of the kids’ Christmas books. They love to sit by the fire and read this time of year!
To spruce up the tree , I added in red glass balls and sprigs of red berries to the gold berries, balls, and flowers we already had.
One of our yearly Christmas traditions is to give each of our kids a new ornament each holiday season that represents the past year. I love that our tree is a reflection of the past four years of our kids’ lives.
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
