A Colorful Christmas

Last year, I linked up to Kelly's Korner for the Christmas Tour of Homes. She's having the link-up again today so I had to participate! I love seeing how everyone decorates their home for Christmas!
We're in a different house this year so my decorations look very different as well. I also went with a multi-colored theme with pretty much everything and am LOVING it! Just so fun and happy.

 Let the tour commence.

I saw these little decorative sticks in Hobby Lobby and had to have them!! Luckily, I got them at 1/2 off, since they're regularly $24!! I just stuck them in my pots on the front porch for an extra touch.

This picture was clearly taken before I did the wreaths.
Notice my lovely assistant holding the door open for me. ;-)
We decided to forgo the real tree this year. We have enough to take care of this year and I don't have time to worry about watering a tree. Our artificial tree went kaput so we had to buy a new one. I like it so much better than our old one, though. Our entryway is nice and big so it's the perfect spot for the tree.

I love these fun ornaments, from Hobby Lobby.

Looking into the dining room from foyer.

JOY letters are from Target. Had to have 'em.

Some of my favorite decorations are these deer.

Just like last year, I just used layers of different fabrics for a tree skirt. So simple and if you get the fabric when it's on sale, it can be a lot cheaper than buying a $60 tree skirt!

We've got ourselves a FULL mantle, people!! And trust's full and complete! ;-)

Silver pop-up trees from Target. I just covered a few small boxes with fabric to add a colorful touch.

On the butler's pantry, I displayed our Puckett tray. I got it from Christmas Village in Birmingham a few years ago. It still really irks me that they put an apostrophe, but whatever.
I'm a self-admitted grammar/spelling/punctuation snob.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!! 
I can't wait to check out all the other decorations from the link-up!
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Friday!


  1. I LOVE all of your décor! It is so pretty and so colorful!! Look at all those stockings. Santa is going to break his back trying to carry his sack down your chimney this year!

  2. Everything looks beautiful! I bet Hudson will be lots of fun this year.

  3. I love all of your decorations Lauren! They're beautiful! My favorite is your mantle (love, love, love your stockings!!) and the reindeer! And side note- do you live in B'ham?! I live there (here, whatever!) too and I go to Christmas Village every year!

  4. I love the colorful decor. Your house looks beautiful!

  5. Merry Christmas! I'm stopping by from Kelly's Korner. Love all your non traditional Christmas colors and the more whimsical look. The idea of the trees on on presents is soo cute!

  6. What a great place! Love your decos. Stopping by from Kelly's Korner! I love all the colours!
