It’s become a tradition around here to share our home all dressed for the holidays.  I had great intentions to do it early in the month, but here I am the week of Christmas finally sharing it with you!  Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite annual activities, and while I have classic family pieces that I always set out, I also love adding to and changing little things a bit each year. Read on below for photos and my holiday decor recs!

The Living Room

This year I chose to keep the living room mantle simple with greenery and eucalyptus leaves that I picked up at Trader Joe’s. It looks so classic and is also very budget-friendly! FMK and I have had our matching gold stockings since we got married (similar here), and the boys have quilted stockings from Pottery Barn.

The kitchen is of course where we spend most of our time as a family, especially this time of year when the boys love baking holiday treats and sneaking into my latest batch of Christmas cookies! For decor, I hung Trader Joe’s wreaths on the cabinets and window, and placed simple greenery and my favorite holiday candle on the island.  I’ve collected a few Christmas kitchen towels and plates over the years that are always fun to have on display.

Dining Room

The dining room is the most formal room in the house and I love to leave the table set over the holidays.  It makes me so happy to walk in the front door and see the room ready for Christmas Day!  I kept things really simple this year with our gold wedding china and fresh garland down the center of the table.  I also adding this adorable serving tray and accessories from this season’s Mostess box!
