If there is one thing I love, its tradition. For as long as I can remember, every single holiday has brought with it hundreds of small family traditions that make it so special. That being said, you can imagine how important it is to me then to create a cozy, fun atmosphere in which my family and I can celebrate each tradition as it comes. I hope you'll enjoy looking around my happy holiday house!
When you walk through the front door you are immediately greeted by this whimsical wreath. A wreath that has become a signature holiday piece around my house.Peeking through the front window you can see out skinny, yet festive, tree. Living in a pint sized house means making the use of vertical space, not horizontal. I like to think we packed in all the holiday cheer our little living space could hold! You might even get a little peek at this sweetie, who can be regularly seen "rearranging" our ornaments. This little guy means something special to my husband and I, so we little to fill him with seasonal joy whenever we get the chance. Christmastime is the best because we get to fill him with all the free holly we want, found right outside our door!This sweet ribbon tree moves around daily in our space. I can't seem to find just the perfect place. Or maybe I just need to make one for EVERY space and then be satisfied!These 'whimsical topiaries' have added a fun little mix to what is otherwise pretty traditional Christmas decor.
Our dining room is currently my favorite room. Around 4th of July I was inspired to use glass Coke bottles to create a flower centerpiece. Way back in July I couldn't wait to get my hands on them again for Christmas. I kept the table setting light and fun, which is appropriate for this years Christmas brunch. I used Coke bottles, fresh flowers and some fun candy cane striping.We may not have a ton of space to decorate in our small home, but I am enjoying the little things this year. It is just enough to make a smile every time we walk through the door!
I'll be linking to the CSI Project's Holiday Home Tour this week.
I can't wait to see what everyone else has done to make their home perfect for the holidays!
