Christmas decor home tour with elegant and natural touches in red, green, mercury glass silver, warm gold, and other vintage inspired accents.
I decided this year that I wanted to decorate with all of the things I love- elegant mercury glass ornaments, natural greenery, cream ribbons, gold bells, vintage Santas, and an eclectic mix of vintage and old world accents. We moved recently and I really just wanted to make our home feel more like home for our first Christmas here.
Since the move, finding all of my Christmas decor has been next to impossible. I honestly can't remember what I got rid of (and I got rid of a lot) and what I kept so that made it even harder.
For our elegant Christmas fireplace, I used a faux garland, faux branches and added fresh eucalyptus and dried pepper berry. You can see my Christmas Garland Tutorial for my easy step-by-step tutorial.
When we moved, I donated both of my big flocked trees (on accident) so I was without a Christmas tree this year. I decided that I wanted to have a green tree and found one that I loved- this 9 ft. green tree. It is so realistic and has been a lot of fun to have in this room. I am still a sucker for flocked trees, but this one is beautiful too. I think I just really love to have a mixture of both throughout our home.

It seems like it has taken me a lot longer to get everything decorated this year because of our move, but it has also seems like more fun in some ways. I guess I don't feel stressed about getting it finished this year. We are just enjoying the process, which means making homemade ornaments together, gingerbread villages, lots of glass glitter and vintage pictures. It is so fun.
I am working on the tutorials and free printables for some of the ornaments, but in the meantime, you might want to check out my Christmas projects and Free Christmas Printables. There are a bunch there!
There is just something about the mirrors reflecting all of the twinkle lights everyday that makes my heart skip a beat.
My sweet friend dropped off this poinsettia for us last week and it has brightened my kitchen with the most beautiful pop of deep red. I put it inside of one of my favorite vintage ironstone pieces.
Over in my hallway, I have my vintage peg shelf with a hanging berry basket and a vintage Santa print I made.
We aren't finished with this tree yet, but have been enjoying it just like this. I love the garlands we made out of Dried Orange Slices Our plan is to make some vintage ornaments, maybe out of my free printable vintage gift tags, for this tree. We are just going to take our time and enjoy it.
I turned my kitchen cabinet into jar shelves just like in my last kitchen to help store our pantry staples. On the top shelf, we made Gingerbread Christmas Village Jars. I have a whole tutorial for how to make gingerbread village jars. I put my favorite antique sled on the top of my cabinet.
In my little girl's room, I put my shorter skinnier flocked tree with a collection of gold, antiqued silver, mercury glass, glass glitter, cream and brown. I feel like it turned out so much cuter in person, but she just loves it. And I love it too. It might just be my favorite Christmas tree ever.
I always have a bowl of pomegranates on my counter at Christmastime. I love them so much and they are such a treat to have this time of year. And their deep red color is just beautiful.
It has been so much fun decorating for Christmas and we. are still enjoying it. I hope you are enjoying the process this year too!
I know you will love these beautiful Christmas home tours too!
