Once I got my inside holiday decor figured out on our first Christmas in the house, it really hasn’t changed much and I have only purchased or made a couple of new things to add each year. Since this was our first year with the porch and since we use it every.single.day, I wanted to deck it out for Christmas!
The littles helped me plant white pansies in the pots on the stairs.
I added a white fur pillow and fleecy throw (both things I already had) to the sofa.
Sister helped me trim the tree in burlap ribbon (Hobby Lobby), clear glass ball ornaments (Michael’s) and oyster shells (left over from the DIY chandelier
). The baby fell in love with the tree topper at Hobby Lobby and I couldn’t say no. He clutched it in his arms the whole way home :-) I put mini lights and large lights on the tree and it looks gorgeous at night.
Our hot chocolate station gets daily use! The jars with chalkboard labels are from World Market. I bought them for the baby’s room but didn’t end up needing them. The paper coffee cups and lids are from Party City and are perfect for a hot drink to go!
I lined the oyster shell centerpiece with garland clippings and then filled it back up with pinecones, oyster shells and antique fishing floats.
Sister also helped me with the mantle. Everything was purchased half of at Hobby Lobby. I used two swags, a bolt of burlap ribbon, two bags of large pinecones, a strand of mini lights and a strand of larger lights.
The glittered reindeer is from Target.
The glittered monogram canvas was a quick DIY project. See how here!
The stockings are by Mud Pie.
I used the vintage refrigerator basket, found at Habersham Antique Market earlier this year, to hold our firewood.
We’ve already spent many, many nights out here listening to Christmas music, sipping on hot chocolate and roasting smores in the fireplace. It’s truly become our favorite room of the lot!
