"Home for the Holidays" Tour!


Thanks so much for taking a peek at our Christmas nutcracker mantel (seen HERE)!  And, now, I'm excited to be part of the "Home for the Holidays" Tour where 29 other bloggers and I are "virtually" sharing parts of our holiday homes!  AND, there's even an incredible giveaway, too (details below).

What can I say?  I.LOVE.CHRISTMAS. … everything about it … the traditions, smells, anticipation and, of course, the decorating!  And, since I have just a tad more sparkle to spread around, I'm sharing sneaks and peeks today so, crank up Bing Crosby and come on in!

One of the first rooms you'll see when you walk through the front door is our sitting room.  This year, I traded red, white and silver for green, brown, silver and gold:

Peeking on into the dining room, you'll spy lots of red ...

mixed in with silver, white and black (a "new" Christmas color for me)!

Of course, it would't be complete without a little bit of mercury, now would it?

One thing that will never change is my love for all things candy, gingerbread and whimsy in our Christmas kitchen … 

… and, to ensure that I don't even *attempt* to bake (and burn) holiday cookies, I've covered our flour with a few ornaments: 

Our breakfast area got a little bit of a new holiday look this year, as I decided to give it its own theme with fruit,

and, even added a new tree full of tiny wine bottles, corks, cheese and grapes … loved throwing a bit of deep purple in there, too!

And, over in our great room, pretty much anything goes on the tree, including a crazy topper!

You'll also spy nutcrackers standing guard by the fireplace,

carolers serenading you with traditional holiday songs,

and, most importantly, a reminder of the true reason for the season.

Out on our screened porch, I added a few pops of holiday color,

annnnd, I'm just about done with my husband's NY Yankee's tree in his "man cave."  

Thanks so much for stopping by … I hope you'll join me in the coming days when I share lots more of our holiday home!  

Now, it's time to continue our virtual "Home for the Holidays" tour with links below:

AND, don't forget to enter the incredible giveaway, featuring, not only an amazing $200 gift card from One Kings Lane, but several other prizes, as well!!

Love it Becca. Everything is so festive. And while we're not Yankees fans here, I love the man cave tree! Can't wait to see the full reveal.

So happy to be on this tour with you.

I love how pretty all of your rooms are with your Christmas decorations. You've put a lot of work into all the little details, I can tell. I laughed at the ornaments on top of the flour. I wondered why you did that and now I know. Cute idea! LOL!
