Christmas Home Tour

Be sure to check out this year’s Christmas tour!

Ready to get started?

I’m so excited to share with you today my Christmas home tour!

I didn’t know if I’d actually get a chance to do one this year but I made it work!

It’s challenging and exciting every year to do Christmas decorating a little bit different using the same decorations I have from each and every year. No one needs to go out and buy new holiday stuff every year so it’s good to change it up a bit but keeping the core Christmas tree (if you have faux) and garlands, decorations, etc.

Now on to the tour!

Living Room

My cat was sleeping on the basket with the blanket and just before I brought my camera in front of her, she moved. She didn’t want to cooperate today but she normally is sleeping everywhere I take photos (like last year’s Christmas tour).

For my mantel this year, I brought out the Fraser fir garland I’ve had for years and years from Balsam Hill (you can see when I first got it in December 2014).

I only used one garland whereas other Christmases I used two garlands which was flowing to the ground (check out my plaid Christmas mantel from 2018).

The rustic bells I’ve had for a few years as well that I love to put out or hung.

The European stockings I made years ago and still love using them.

And the wooden beads I made a couple of years ago for my tree that I keep in the dining room and I just hung two of them on either end of the mantel.

I also love my French Eiffel tower globe ornaments I’ve had for years too.

And recently I found these gorgeous vintage chandelier-crystal-drops turned-ornaments from my friend Monica of @beachantoniette.

I found some pretty black and white stripe, toile and check wrapping paper from Home Sense this year and paired it with a gorgeous green satin ribbon.

Adding some pine greenery to some old pottery makes a simple area look festive.

My cat sits like a human all the time. It’s hilarious!

Dining Room

Then I added some simple touches to my dining table with my vintage brass candlesticks and mini bells that I got from a local shop, The Style Well.

I softened the look with some snippets of fresh pine sprigs to the table runner as well.

You can find brass candlesticks easily at thrift shops and I also sourced some on Etsy here.

I also made some simple bows with the same satin green ribbon and used double-sided tape to attach it to each frame.

I bought these battery operated candle lights years ago and I love them! But they each take one battery and die quite quickly so I use them without a battery. They are still really pretty!

And I just found these cute forest animal ornaments from Canadian Tire.

Kitchen

In the kitchen, I added lots of vintage pottery and pine clippings.

The pine clippings are real but the wreath on the hood range is faux.

I love how the pine clippings are kinda dropping to one side. Very natural and the whole house smells amazing currently.

I added the driftwood tree that I’ve had for about 15 years now and some more pine clippings in vintage pottery.

I stacked some vintage pottery together to add some height.

I found this cute little stool at a local shop but I found one similar online.

I love this French cook book, just for looks (don’t tell anyone I haven’t tried any recipes…yet!).

I’ve had these Christmas mugs and plates from Pottery Barn for years. Unfortunately, they don’t sell them anymore.

But they do have these adorable vintage Santa mugs.

  1. As always, your place looks magical!
    I love the vintage looking bells nestled among the greenery.
    Thank you for sharing your tour with everyone.

    1. Aww thank you, Chris! I LOVE those vintage bells and glad you appreciate them as much as I do.
      I hope you have a wonderful holiday this year!
      Hugs, Jamie

  2. Your tour was so enjoyable. Made me happy looking at everything. How long will your fresh greenery last? I have an entire evergreen forest directly behind my house and would love to decorate with some, but often wonder if it would die without water. Also, what about that sticky sap? Do you have any trouble with those issues, or is it strictly for your photos?

    1. Hi Colleen,
      That makes me so happy to hear! So surprisingly, these clippings did not have any sap on them and I didn’t put them in water as they were sitting out in the rain in front of the store for quite some time. I think putting them in a vase of water would help. Having them on a table runner like I did in my dining room, I would let them dry out before you do that so the sap dries up then place them there and they will eventually die. That’s what I did, brought the clippings home and left them on a towel to acclimate to the temperature. But the ones you want on display in a vase, I would put those ones in water!
      Hugs, Jamie

  3. Jamie this looks beautiful! There are so many fave elements it’s hard to just pick one! Your mantle is absolutely stunning and love those gifts wrapped with green satin ribbon.

  4. Everything looks lovely. One thing I notice is that you obviously pick classic items that remain “good” for a very long time…the garland, the driftwood tree, etc. I love your choice of wrapping paper and ribbon as well. Your interior design business must be thriving!

  5. Your home looks absolutely lovely!! Love the antique stool, the bells, the pottery but most of all – your beautiful kitty🙂. Thanks for sharing your calming, beautiful Christmas home!
