Classy Christmas Home Tour
Christmas has quickly become my favorite holiday to decorate for, which is why I'm super excited to be hosting this Cheerful Christmas Home Tour blog hop along side of some very talented bloggers! If you're visiting from Alyse's blog, welcome and I hope you're enjoying our home tours so far!
Slip your shoes off, pour yourself a festive drink and come on in to see how we do Christmas in Florida. ;)
In our foyer, I only changed up a few things for an easy transition from our fall decor. The lanterns remain on the console, and I've hung a wreath on the mirror. I used a serving tray to hold my diy spray painted pine cones, a piece of coral and some fresh greenery that I trimmed off our pine trees by the entry.
Here, I added some starfish to a simple wreath to give it a coastal vibe. I also added the burlap bow by attaching it with a small paper clip. Would you have guessed?
Summer hasn't seen Rudolph in a year so she was slowly getting reacquainted with some gentle sniffs. ;)
I must admit, I'm rather proud of these pine swags that I made from the trees near our entry. This is the same ribbon that I used to create my Simple DIY Christmas Present Throw Pillow.
This year, my goal was to add one more Christmas tree to my "collection". This pencil tree was once in my family room, but I've moved it to the dining room to give the space a little more Christmas cheer. Perhaps each year I can add another tree to our home so that eventually every room will have it's own Christmas tree! #goals

I strung some beads up on this chandelier to add a bit of character and charm.
I don't think you can have a coastal Christmas without starfish. This one makes a great little topper. ;)
This greenery is just a plain wreath that happened to fit perfectly into this tray (when crammed just a little). I threw a few starfish on it and it easily creates a cute dining table centerpiece.

I found some wrapping paper that would fit in perfectly with my gold and beige living room decor and went to town wrapping some gifts.
You can use left over tree garland/ribbon to make your gifts look extra fancy and festive.
There's something about sparkling lights casting a warm glow on everything that makes the house feel cozy and more inviting than ever!
This cute little swag is a makeshift mistletoe that I tied together, again using pine tree clippings from the front yard. Those trees needed a little trim, anyway. :)
What a great find at the Target Dollar Spot! Perfectly neutral bottle brush trees found a home on my bar cart.
This DIY ornament is one of my faves. I think I may be adding more next year.
Here are some more adorable letter garlands that can be strung just about anywhere for the holiday season! I think I need more!
This fur wine wrap is the cutest accent to wine bottles on a bar cart or to adorn a bottle as a gift. Check out these other fun ways to dress up your bottles this winter!
These picks are a great way to make your tree appear fuller and taller! If you're looking for a few tips on how to get your tree to look like a million bucks on a budget, you can find them here.
In an upcoming post, I'll also be sharing how I decorated my bedroom and family room for Christmas! Stay tuned! Until then, please continue on our Cheerful Christmas Home Tour by heading over to Valerie's home next! Enjoy!
