As I've said before, we tried to make everything as natural and simple as possible this year. Hence, the wreath. I like it though! I made the bow real quick with some burlap ribbon that one of my wonderful and crafty work friend surprised me with when I couldn't find it anywhere in town.
Ornaments hung from the window in the kitchen with a mixture of fresh and fake greenery along the window sill.
Here's a little snapshot of our kitchen that has yet to be featured on the blog. You get the gist, right?
I had some extra ornaments so I combined them with a few fillers and spanish moss that I had lying around the house. Add to that a white bowl and cake stand and you have a cute little decoration!
Nothing much in the dining room. Just some greenery in the light fixture (that I would really like to replace this year....please!), and a pretty poinsettia on a cake plate. In a trashcan. Yes, that "vase" is actually a trashcan that was on sale at TJ Maxx (where else?).
And of course, the mantel, which I posted about with a lot more pictures here.
Little vignette in the corner of the living room.
I apologize for the terrible lighting in this picture. It was an overcast/sunny day and I just couldn't get the settings on the camera to work with it.....but here is our living room in all of its Christmas-y glory.
Oh the tree. I didn't put that many pictures of it in this post, but that's mostly because there are about 387 in my last post that you can look at here.
And on to our bedroom. Simple. I love it. Some ornaments in a vase, greenery, and another pretty poinsettia. In another trashcan. Whoops :).
So that's it for our house in 2011! Hope you enjoyed the tour :). I had a lot of fun decorating and am very excited to look at all of the homes decked out for the holidays around blog world. Thanks for reading!
