Christmas at Home

Christmas is only a few days away and I just realized that I haven't done our home tour yet!
 Come on in...we're Home for the Holidays!
This is the first thing you see when you come into the entryway.....
I have decorated our entry in a Nutcracker theme this year.
If you look to your left as you come in, you will see the formal dining room....
As we leave the entry way, we can go straight into the kitchen or turn down the hallway.....let's go down the hallway....
I have kind of a wide space a the end of the hall way.... 
with a built in lit the right of the cabinet is the door to the powder room...
The powder room is decorated in a Paris theme, and I continued that theme with the Christmas decor.
At the end of the hall is the master bedroom....let's take a look in there!

The master bedroom has a Christmas tree made from vintage wedding gowns....

The stockings are hung on the fireplace mantle....
and the girls are just adding the last decorations to the tree!
Let's go back up the hall to the entry way, make a right.....
and we are in the kitchen!
I have a Candy Land Christmas theme in the kitchen.
Right next to the kitchen is the first tree in the family room...
As you come further into the family room, you see satin and lace trees on each side of the fireplace....
and the mantle decorated for Christmas.
Just the other side of the family room is the sun room.
We love to eat in the sun room.....

I've taken many sunny afternoon naps on this couch!

Thank you so much for visiting our home today!

  H and I want to wish all of you a blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

  24. Penny,
    Your home was just absolutely stunning this year for Christmas!! I loved all your beautiful vignettes and I love how you decorated the big white Tree surrounded by the Carousel horses. You inspired me so much that I have been hitting the after Christmas sales buying the colored ornaments to use on my white tree in the guest room next year. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!


  25. Your home is so beautiful! Thank you for participating in the project Handmade Cafe!


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
