Christmas Tour

It is my most favorite time of year!! Christmas time is here... come on it and have a cup of cheer!
Here is the outside... we light up the bushes, the garland around the front door and candles in the windows.
Our front door evergreen wreath with monogram
Front door... I am loving the lantern and the door mat that says "JOY"
I even picked some fresh pine from the back yard and added them in all of my lanterns... yup.. just call me Martha... HA!
My new Christmas flag that says "Tis the Season to Celebrate"
My new mailbox cover that says "Merry Christmas Y'all" I got it at Ace half off a few weeks ago and I think it looks perfect with my H flag.
Lets start in the dining room. I wanted it to have a more rustic/natural feel.

I even did a natural/rustic tree using burlap, black and white plaid and stars, pine cones, birdhouses, and my musical sheet ornaments.
And here is some close ups of the table...
Don't you love the natural garland?

I love the look of the cranberries in the jars with the twine!

I hung a wreath between the windows...

and added more pine needles to my lantern.

And now to the guest bath....

Little tree in a bucket... LOVE!

To the kitchen....

I still have yet to put a picture in the frame... but I put it on the counter.

Our kitchen table.
I have 6 of the red and white polka dot plates and the go with my white dishes pretty perfectly.

kitchen window.

More Christmas plates in the corner.

on top of the fridge. (I did add a red bow to the topiary)

And it is hard to tell but my lanterns on top of the cabinet have pine needles.
Moving on the living room...

cozy spot by the fire

I give you the Heath Family Christmas tree

I used all red, white and burlap and even tied in the plaid.
