Holiday Home Tour

12.12.2009

It is finally holiday home tour time! I have been looking forward to this since November. This is our first holiday season in sweet home Alabama and I would love for you to come in and stay awhile!

ETA: I have some new photos up- I have finally found the key to good Christmas tree pics: NO FLASH!

Welcome:

Our main tree is in our foyer this year:

This is the view from the balcony:

And our magnolia garland:

The stockings were all hung by the chimney with care:

Cooper asked for the Mickey Tree to be in his room this year:

Handmade Mickey Mouse tree skirt!

And Alexa's frilly, pink girly tree with a tutu tree skirt:

I totally revamped Alexa's tree tonight, it was crooked and a little too empty looking. I took some of my old rhinestone jewelry and used some cards from her first birthday party to make ornaments for the tree:

I used pink ribbon hangers from Martha Stewart's line to hang the ornaments and the tree looks so much better, even if it is still wonky!

The kids have a tree in the playroom which holds all of their hand-made ornaments. For the first time this year, Cooper bought us presents and put them under their tree (so sweet):

And finally, some favorite touches around the house-

This was my grandmother's Christmas Merry Engelbreit tray. I absolutely love her illustrations. If you have not seen her version of "Twas The Night Before Christmas", get thee to Barnes and Noble immediately!

My husband's favorite decoration, the kissing ball:

  2. Wow, check out all of those trees!! How pretty. That black and white checked ribbon is what completely caught my eye. The only stairs in my house are the pull down attic stairs (Ladder), suppose I can't decorate that. LOL

  8. I love your magnolia swag. It makes a bold statement with the thick shiny leaves next to the softness of the evergreen needles. Merry Christmas
