Christmastime is my favorite time of year! I love to break out the decorations, trim the trees, hang lights, wrap presents, bake cookies.. I love everything about Christmas!
I try to give our home a magical feel when I decorate for Christmas. I love all the little details! So here’s some photos of our Christmas decorations this year:
This year I decided to go with a live garland and wreath. I love the smell every time you walk through the front door! I have a pretty little Christmas doormat at the front door (sorry you can’t see it here!) from World Market. We changed out our normal light bulbs for red & green to add a little extra Christmas fun to our entrance!
Here’s our main Christmas tree in the living room. This year I decided to decorate our tree white and silver.. It’s my favorite color combination yet! It so simple and classic.
We strung up white lights vertically in our windows behind the main Christmas tree. I love this look! It’s so classy.
This photo is from last year but we put up the lights this way again this year.
These little Christmas trees (similar here
) and reindeer
are some of my favorite new pieces from Target..
Anywhere in the house I could find space, I reused my Christmas ornaments from last year. I just mixed up the different colored bulbs and put them in pretty bowls out on display in different rooms all throughout the house.

I love to hang Christmas lights on the interior of the house. These hang along our doors inside the family room. The glow at night makes the room feel so cozy!
Gotta sneak in a little mistletoe somewhere! 🙂
How comfy do these pillows look?! I pair them with a white fur throw blanket over the side of our couch (not pictured.) The purple pillows are all from Pier 1
, the gray cable knit pillows are from Pottery Barn
, and the pretty little Christmas pillow is an early Christmas present from my mother-in-law!
Just a few little details from my mantle. I bought regular garland and lightbulb garland from Michael’s last year and combined the two to make a unique garland piece for the mantle. I love the colors on a white mantle!
The stocking is from World Market (similar here
) and I just added a monogram ornament.
I love my mantle details!
I made these little trees with tomato wire cages. I just wrapped multi-color Christmas lights around fake garland and then wrapped the garland around the wire cages and secured it. Voila! A happy little mini Christmas tree!
This pretty purple and gold wreath was made by my mom last year!
One of my hubby’s favorite little details is my Christmas candles. I use various size candle holders and fill them about halfway up with epsom salt and add in a tea light candle. When you light the tea light, the salt glows making the candle look like it’s in snow. I have these all over my home!
It’s not the Holidays without a little candy around the house. I hope you enjoyed these photos and maybe found a little Christmas inspiration in them. Stay tuned for part two of my decorations coming tomorrow!
