Well hello December...I'm so excited that the holidays have started. This is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the food, fun, and most of all the time spent with family and friends. Usually we spend Christmas in Missouri with my family, but this year we are staying put in the Mitten state. We are looking forward to hosting some family gatherings this year! A couple weeks ago I got out the Christmas decorations, put on the infamous Elvis Christmas album, and danced around the living room while decorating. Today I'm sharing our Home for the Holidays.
The glittery eucalyptus wreath is from Menards (only available in stores), but I added the white pine cone floral from Michaels.

I made this banner with some white paint, stencils, and kraft paper. The tutorial for the gold flowers was on the blog a couple weeks ago. Check it out here!
The white bottle brush trees are from Amazon. The exact ones I purchased are currently out, but you can view similar ones here.
This chair was a Goodwill find. I added a coat of white paint and sprayed the legs and back with gold metallic spray paint. The gold lantern is a two year old Target find. The silver star was a gift, but I saw something similar in Home Goods recently.
I found the cream cascading floral at Michaels. I used an old Ikea floor vase for the floral.
I got this lovely white Christmas tree from Menards. I looked EVERYWHERE and they had the best price for this 7ft white beauty. Most of my ornaments are a collection from the Dollar Tree and thrift store finds. I love buying ornaments at thrift stores because you can find the beautiful glass bulbs for a fraction of the cost. I also collected some small branches and hit them with some gold spray paint to add some additional sparkle to the tree. Another great way to stretch your decorating budget and your neighbors will appreciate you cleaning up the twigs from their yard...unless they are a crazy blogger lady like me!
Added some pops of gold to the couches with some decorative pillows.
Well I hope you enjoyed a peek at my Christmas decor. I have some beautiful christmas centerpiece ideas for you very soon! Have a wonderful week.
Also be sure to check out my feature on Glamista Home! A big thank you to Dagmara from Glamista Home for the lovely post. This year I have one more thing to be thankful for...a welcoming blogging community with the most ambitious and wonderful women.
