It's a White Christmas! - Home Tour







Hello everyone!




Well, now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it is officially the Christmas season. And just in case you weren't counting, Christmas will be here in just 25 days!   So........

I'm inviting you into my home today for a quick little "white Christmas" home tour.  Hope you enjoy it!




I hung a simple white fur wreath over the mirror in my foyer.


I placed my Christmas tree in the foyer this year.  It's a small table top tree and is just the right size for us. 




I dressed it in silver and white ornaments and white lights.


My dining room got the same treatment with a silver tinsel tree, and silver and white balls filling my dough bowl as a centerpiece. 


A few gold and white glittery Christmas balls are hung from the chandelier and tied with white ribbon.


In the sitting room, my inner "Miss Mustard Seed" was released.  Ha!  Greenery and ribbon adorns the horse while pom pom garland hangs overhead.


I placed this wooden Christmas tree sign in a galvanized bucket and filled it with shredded paper.




This little white house is actually a tea light holder and looks so pretty lit at night.


My secretary got some Christmas cheer with the addition of some flowers and a whimsical deer.



My mantel is all a glow in white with some greenery and paper whites added.




Simple green wreaths hung by white ribbon hang in the bay window above the sofa.


An old fashioned tinsel tree was all that was needed for the coffee table.  







In the powder room, another small tinsel tree lights up the space and acts like a night light as well.


I probably have the least amount of Christmas decor in the kitchen.  It didn't need much.  Another small green Christmas tree sits in the center of the table and a white pom pom wreath adds cheer to the window. 



I'm enjoying a serene white Christmas in my home this year.

  Our presents will be wrapped in gold, silver and white.    I'm anxious to get started wrapping so I can enjoy the pretty packages too!  Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?  Some of you may have knocked it all out on black Friday!  We're doing most of ours online so we can avoid the crowds.  

Well, I'm off to go look at all the pretty Christmas home tours that all of you are sharing this week.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Kelly your home looks beautiful! I adore the tree in your foyer and the pretty wreaths in the bay window. Love all the pops of green against the white. I am also jealous that you have presents to wrap as I have not even started my Christmas shopping yet! Maybe today I will venture out and get some shopping done.
Wishing you a wonderful week!
XO Barbara

Your house with the decorations look absolutely beautiful.

Art and Sand said...

Your house is absolutely dreamy ... so many beautiful displays all over the house.

Our house is all decorated and I finished my shopping on October 26 when I hit buy on our airline tickets to Kauai. Our kids voted for no presents this year and a return to our all family vacation during the holidays. I can't tell you how nice it is to simply enjoy our decorated house and not having to rush around shopping.

It's absolutely beautiful Kelly!! The cotton wreath is adorable and I love your little tinsel trees everywhere. I found a vintage silver tinsel tree at an estate sale a few years ago. My daughter claims it for her bedroom every year. We have a mix of pumpkins and twinkle lights at the moment, but I'm trying to get motivated! You have been busy and it turned out so gorgeous!! xo

Kelly, what a gorgeous tour!!! It's just the right amount of decor, not too much!!!!! I love that wooden bowl with all the silver Christmas balls and the inner Miss Mustard seed sitting room....lol!!!! PINNING as always!!! Merry Christmas!!!! MUAHHHH

Christine Vandormolen said...

ohhh and by the way you have some gorgeous pom pom throws, where did you find them ???? You always have the best stuff!!!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

It's all so beautiful. I must come see it in person!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

What a gorgeous home tour! I like the idea of a tabletop tree and that galvanized bucket holding it is perfect. I usually do four trees, but this year I'll probably only do the main tree in the living room. We just replaced our 15 year old artificial tree and let me tell you...it's very difficult to find an UNLIT tree that has hinged branches. I drove myself crazy trying to track one down lol! Anyway, your home is lovely! The Christmas balls tied to the chandelier is such a nice touch and I adore that fur wreath and the wreaths on the windows.

Your house looks so beautiful dressed up for Christmas! I like how you stuck with the winter white theme! Very pretty! I always intend to have a theme with my presents but then I end up buying wrapping paper at all different times and end up with a hodgepodge of color. Thanks for taking us on your house tour!

I love the farmhouse elogance of your home. The different trees are all beautiful. I bought a galvanized wash pan a couple of months ago and haven't known what to do with it. Thanks for the idea. I knew it would come in handy.

lala said...

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! Oh, how I would love to decorate in soft peaceful white - it makes your home so serene and welcoming. My family however prefers all the tinsel and color blinking lights. Oh well, so glad that I can enjoy my peaceful, calm Christmas through lovely blogs such as yours. Thank you so much for sharing, and have a Joyous Merry Christmas
