It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I seriously love Christmas, y’all. We decorated the house a little early this year and I’ve been listening to Christmas music for weeks. I’ve basically turned into Buddy the Elf. Our first Christmas with our baby girl is adding to the excitement for sure!
Carrie from Lovely, etc. invited me to join in on her “A Very Merry Christmas Home Tour” this year, along with 24 other fabulous bloggers. Be sure to check out all of the other tours for more Christmas inspiration. Their links are at the bottom of this post…along with a $500 giveaway! HOLLA!
I’ll be sharing the first half of our home all Christmas-ified today; our living room and kitchen. I’ll mostly just share photos with minimal dialogue. If you have any questions about sources, feel free to ask!
This year, the tree was trimmed with a red & white checkered burlap ribbon and a felted ball garland. We opt for sentimental ornaments over a themed tree. Our tradition is to pick up an ornament on vacations or for any momentous occasion. This year we’ve added some sweet pink to the tree!
Lucy’s adorable stocking came from TaDa! Creations on Etsy. I’m officially obsessed with this shop.
Another tradition we’ve started in recent years is purchasing a new Christmas album to play on our record player. Among my favorites are A Christmas Gift for You and Merry Christmas by Bing Crosby. This year’s addition is the Beach Boys Christmas Album. So much fun!
