A Bit of Christmas Around the House

Since money was a little tight this year, I utilized a lot of my decor from last year and thought it all turned out so much better :) 

I have a whole box full of just silver, red & blue ornaments and they came in handy all over the house.
Just fill jars, bowls & containers with them and you've got instant Christmas glam!! 

My silver reindeer was 75% off last year at Kohls and I heart him. 

I decked out my second mantel with a bunch of my decor from last year's Christmas mantel
I love all the colors together :) 

I moved my chevron wood art from my fall mantel and used it above the china cabinet for now and I love it.
I added a cute little nativity scene, some wood slices and more ornaments to finish it off. 

I love my little entry table and it got lots of Christmas-sy spirit this year. 
I added my linen striped wreath to the mirror and sprinkled several trees in the middle of the scene. 
My vintage scale and bricks were the perfect finishing touches. 

I love mixing rustic & glam so my tree slices were spread out throughout the house.
This one was perfect for setting my glittery silver tree on!

I never did get awesome pictures of my tree this year- I let the kids go crazy putting ornaments on it. 
I added my red mesh and glittery champagne ribbon for some gorgeousness :) 

One of my favorite things to pull out at Christmas is my vintage Coca-Cola cooler. 
It's been in my dad's family for years and it's special to me :) 

I let the kids make handprint christmas trees and I love having them hanging near the tree!

After the hot chocolate party (if you missed all the fun, check it out here!) 
I used some of the decor to finish decorating the dining room. 

I set the trees on the table and added a white platter in between them. 
(I love white dishes!!) 
I set a pair of dollar store candlesticks and a Goodwill wine glass on the platter and added ornaments to them.
I was surprised by how much I liked the simplicity of it!

I left the ornaments and wreath hung over the window for a touch of glam & color. 

There's something about bakers twine and linen that I love :) 

I think my dining room is quickly becoming my favorite room in the house. 
All that blue, red and linen makes me happy :) 

Hope you enjoyed a little of my Christmas happiness we have going on :) 
Happy Tuesday!
