Christmas Decor Tour

Our apartment isn't THAT big but people have asked for a tour of I thought I would kind of do it for Christmas DECOR. I LOOOOOOoooooOOOOOOOOOOve Christmas and preparing for the big day is just as much fun! My mom and I on Thanksgiving day went and got me a tree for a killer deal! I couldn't live without one! goes the tour!

My cute cousin, M*, is super creative and made this cute banner! I based my Christmas tree and this room off the and lime-ish green! My cousin has a cute blog..but is private SO you can go check out her photography blog here

Another view of the banner!

 Our Stockings. Mine is on the left and Matson's is the right! (We have no fireplace so the hooks worked out great).

 My mom made this ADORABLE quilt that is made out of only flannel fabric! So warm and I have used it all month! And the little pillow is homemade too. My grandma D* (my Dad's mom) gave me this petti-point before Matson and I were married. So I decided to make it into a pillow!
Our Christmas Tree! Love it! Red and Lime.

The Candy Jars or Red and White Candies!

 My Nutcracker Collection...Collected them as a child and now using them for decoration!!

 Yes, it does say "leon" but is suppose to say "noel". I told Matson about how my Grandma (my mom's mom) use to get so mad at all my uncles cause they would do this to her "noel". So OF COURSE now he does it!

 I added a little of Christmas everywhere with these glitter snowflakes and red ornaments!

 Our Microwave/KitchenAid/Snack table Kitchen Hutch thing. I threw some candy canes in a mug and my brother's fiance, N*, gave me the cute little "Merry Christmas" sign in a white elephant exchange (def cute and not a white elephant!). 

Our Kitchen table, the red ornaments again thrown in a cute platter with a fun holly table runner and another childhood collection of Mary Engelbreit things brought this Holiday Season Cookbook!
 Remember the stories about these snowflakes? Read here. Yes, I fixed them by hanging them from a ribbon instead of the cabinets. I have these hanging all over too!

I just thought I would show mine and Matson's Log Cabin Gingerbread house.

I had a blast preparing for Christmas! If you have any fun Christmas decoration tips or ideas! I would love to hear them! Have a very merry Christmas Eve. and Christmas!

  4. I love your decorations. I was so lame this year and barely decorated because I didn't want to clean it all up with the new baby. (Plus I was pretty tired that whole last trimester.) I'll have to go through our Christmas stuff (I have like 8 or 9 tubs of just Christmas) and give you guys some red and lime stuff. We're switching our colors kinda cause we're buying unbreakable stuff now.
