I’ve been eagerly awaiting this day for weeks and today is my day!  Worthing Court has come alive for Christmas and I’m honored to be joining some of your favorite bloggers for the 2016 Holiday Home Tour hosted by Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate.  There are house tours lined up for everyday this week, so be sure to scroll to the bottom for the links to the other blogger homes.Holiday Home tour poster.Pin

I’ve already shared several areas of my home all decked out for Christmas, but today I get to share everything all in one place!  Plus, I’ll give you some peeks into my kitchen and foyer.  After the years of my Tuscan phase, I had pretty much banned red from my home.  What was I thinking???  I love red, especially at Christmas.  You’ll see that I’ve welcomed it back with open arms this Christmas!

Christmas Home Tour

Let’s start at the beginning – the front porch of my house.  We have a deep and wide front porch, which is a blessing here in the south, but all that space can make it a bit difficult to decorate.  After purchasing our dated, twenty year old home, two years ago and completely remodeling the interior, this is the first year that I’ve gone all out on my porch for Christmas.  What fun it has been to see the reactions of our guests as they arrive at Worthing Court!  Click HERE to take a full tour of the porch.

Come on in through the front door into our foyer.  I can only give you a sneak peek of it today because I have a commitment for a full Christmas foyer reveal on Monday.  I’ll hope you’ll come back for a visit then!

From the foyer, let’s go into the holiday decorated family room.  This is where all the action will be when we hold our annual Christmas gathering at our house.  I used a lot of tartan plaid ribbon on the tree and mantel, but it’s the festive red and white checked ribbon that I think really brings the tree to life!  Click HERE to take the full tour of my cozy Christmas family room.

I always get so excited to see my children and grandchildren open their gifts every year!  This year I used a variety of red, white and green wrapping paper and ribbon to create festive packages.

I literally threw together this vignette on the coffee table in about ten minutes!  And my diy rustic ladder got all dressed up for the holiday too.  Find out how I built the easy-peasy rustic ladder for under $20 HERE.

Let’s move on into the breakfast nook.  These farmhouse open shelves, above my sideboard, are where the Christmas decorating really started this year.  I found the plaid plates on clearance a few months ago and knew that they would take center stage and be the inspiration for all of my Christmas decor!  BTW – you can take the full tour of the breakfast nook HERE.

My kitchen is one long room, with the breakfast nook at one end and the actual kitchen part at the other.  I haven’t posted my full Christmas kitchen tour yet, so I’ll be giving you a few sneak peeks today.

I’ll end this year’s Christmas tour with the dining room because it is soooo different from the rest of the house!  I feel like the dining room should be dressed a little more special for Christmas, since that’s where our formal Christmas meals will be served. The dining room is rustic-glam all the way!  Click HERE to take the full Christmas dining room tour.

  1. Love your Christmas ideas! Everything looks so bright and fresh!

  2. Wow, Suzy, you really pulled out all the stops on decorating this year! I counted at least 3 large trees, and all those presents already wrapped – you can make a grown woman cry with the pace you’re keeping. All kidding aside, it looks fabulous, and it’s more than apparent you are in love with your new home. It shows at every turn, and every turn is terrific. I think my favorite is either the porch or the breakfast nook (good score on the plates, mugs) – hard to choose, but keeping my options open in case there’s a nip in the air. 😉
    I hope your entire season is merry and bright!

  3. Your holiday decorations have been putting in such good spirits for Christmas! Also I LOVE that gingerbread house inside of jar on a cake stand in the kitchen. Would not have thought of that!!

  4. Your house looks beautiful. I think red needs to be in the Christmas decor somehow.

  5. Your home looks lovely! So fresh and festive! 😉

  6. You had me at Christmas tree on the front porch! Wow Suzy, everything looks fa la la fantastic! I agree, Christmas calls for red and with all your rustic white it is the perfect festive accent. All those packages, wow, you must be like my SIL, she was wrapped and ready by Halloween. I haven’t been able to finish my shopping with all the decorating, and was lucky to get one gift wrapped and under my tree for the blog hop 🙂 I love the jars with decorations inside, oh and I’ll be by for some free cocoa later! Happy Holidays, Everything looks magazine perfect!

  7. Your home is picture perfect dressed for the Holidays… so pretty! I love the touches of plaid in many spots! The red pops beautifully in your displays! And that mantel and tree in the family room… oh my… gorgeous! Hope you are having a very Merry Christmas so far! 🙂 ~Rhonda

  8. Rebecca Nelson says:

    Your home is quite cheery. I love plaid and red and green at Christmas.

  9. Suzy, beautiful decorations. I love how you mixed the plaids. The individual vignettes are so pretty and interesting. And your front porch is to die for ~ anytime of year I bet. Happy to be on the Holiday Home Tour Blog Hop with you.

  10. Suzy, I have admired your style for years. When I found out you were participating in the the blog hop I was so excited. Your home looks beautiful adorned for Christmas. Your trees are gorgeous, and I love the coffee table vignette you created…the Santa is so precious! Your farmhouse dining room is stunning! You have thought of every little detail. Your porch turned out wonderful, and I know that you must enjoy it so. Thanks for taking us on the tour. It has been a lot of fun participating with you and the other wonderfully talented bloggers in this blog hop. I hope that you have a Merry Christmas!!!

  11. I always love seeing your home for Christmas Suzy! I get so many little ideas, like ribbon. You always remind me to use more ribbon. So I want to thank you for that! I am working on my DIning Room and Kitchen today, so you have inspired me for those two rooms.I couldn’t pick a favorite, but right now your fireplace is calling me. I could sit there with a cup of coffee and just linger for hours. You do such a tremendous job!

  12. So many great ideas, so little time! Always love seeing what you do each year!
    Merry Christmas!

  13. I just love your home all decked out for Christmas!

  14. Wow! What a great job. So many good ideas!

    Would you mind sharing the paint color you chose for your walls? I am having a tough time
    decidig on that. Any advice is appreciated.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    1. Hi Mechelle. The paint color is Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige. We used it throughout our whole house. Merry Christmas to you as well!

  15. I absolutely love everything in your home.I was excited to see your breakfast nook. It is so cheerful. The plates are cute and I learned a trick from you. Put a tray or shallow basket behind them to highlight . Clever!

  16. Carol Elkins says:

    I love all your Christmas decorations! Everything is so warm and inviting. Your house is beautiful!

  17. Brenda Radliff says:

    It is absolutely beautiful. I love your home, and thank you so much for sharing all of your great ideas. I have been wanting something like your little tray on your coffee table. Lets see if I can put something together as cute as that!

  18. Mary Chris says:

    I love the look and the feel of your home. Very welcoming and comfortable. Great Job.

  19. Donna Lynn Smith says:

    Love everything you have done. And I so agree that you cannot have Christmas without lots of red. I also love red. In fact every room in my house was planned with a bit of Christmas in mind. I have for instance a red sofa, a red and white kitchen, and even my green guest bath has touches of red. Thank you. Everything you have done is inspirational!

  20. I love it all but I especially love the arrangement you made with the gingerbread house sitting on top of the cake stand and the little deer arrangement inside the big glass jar. They are perfect!
