Christmas Decorations- Living Room

I thought I would share the Christmas decorations I put out since my Touches of Christmas post. Due to the number of photos I took, I am breaking this Christmas decor post into two parts. Today I will give you a tour of my Living Room area.

Let me preface by saying that I did not put up a tree this year. I know, we are so “bah-humbug”, but I really wanted to pare everything down to the basics. It has been very nice to simplify and focus on the true meaning of Christmas– Jesus.

Back to the tour… Our mantle holds fresh boughs of evergreen given to me by my friend Melissa Aulds (Thanks Mel!!). She “knew I would appreciate it”, is what she told me! Ha, she must know me well because I am loving the fresh stuff and might have to go this route every year. I placed the white branches in with the boughs.

Our stockings are hung with care.

The stockings that I ordered for our fur babies came in and I love that we all have matching monogrammed stockings!

Side table #1: glittery mini-wreath hangs from the lamp, silver deer picked up at after-Christmas sale years ago, and silver dish holds silver-y pine cones from my backyard.

Side table #2: another glittery mini-wreath hangs from the lamp, my family’s photo framed in a silver bamboo frame, matching silver deer sits atop Christmas books, and a Barbara Berry candle that smells heavenly.

Our Bar: Silver tray found at Goodwill holds our wedding champagne.

Thanks for visiting!! I hope you enjoyed the tour! Please come back for more Christmas decor photos.

Also, please leave a comment so that I know you visited! I love comments. :)
