Christmastime is the best time of year at the Lanter house. Matt and I LOVE to decorate for the holidays.
Our house still isn’t fully decorated… But it’s getting there, slowly but surely. All of our attention has been on the nursery and I can’t wait to finish it!
First up: Our family room. We added a new tree to the decor this year and I love the way it turned out. I had red and white in mind for this room and I HAD to have a flocked tree.
For our kitchen, there wasn’t a lot of decorating involved. I wanted to add wreaths to my counter stools but didn’t get around to it this year… So it’s on my to-do list for next Christmas.
I did add a pretty white berry wreath above my stove which really cozied up the space. My mom and cousin made my pretty Noel wreath which now hangs over my kitchen sink.
One of my favorite spaces to decorate is our dining room. I love changing out my tablescape for the seasons or holidays. If you missed my Thanksgiving tablescape, see it in this post. I chose to use my gold flatware and goblets from Thanksgiving also for my Christmas table setting. I skipped the table runner and placemats and opted for a more simple table, which I think worked out beautifully.
My formal living room is decorated using our tree and mantle decor from our old house. See our Christmas home tour from 2016 in this blog post.
I typically wrap my tree with ribbon, but this year I tried a different method that I learned from my friend, Emily Gemma’s Insta-story with her sister. They cut the ribbon into sections and place the ribbon pieces in the tree. I love the way it turned out! My mom and I did it together and she used the same method on her tree at home.
Last but not least is our bedroom. I love bringing a little Christmas to our bedroom to keep it feeling cozy when we go to bed each night. Since this photoshoot, we’ve added a live boxwood wreath wrapped in fairy lights directly above the bed.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of our home. I linked the exact pieces we have that are still available and tried to find similar pieces for those that are no longer available. Leave any questions in the comments below.
