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. ;)

Foyer

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. ;)

Dining Room

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.

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. :)
