Worthing Court Christmas Home Tour

| | | |

Come see my Christmas home tour for some holiday inspiration that won’t break the bank!

The first word that came to mind when I started thinking about decorating my home for Christmas was “Simplify’.  The other four words were ‘Don’t spend a lot’.   😀

Almost all of the Christmas decorations in my home this year were put together using holiday items that I already had.  I changed things up a bit to give it all a different look – some slightly different and some drastically different from last year.

My front porch is one of the places that looks drastically different.  This year, I opted to use more natural elements.  I still love all the glitter, but you won’t find any on my porch this year.

 I brought back my sled and ice skates from last year’s winter porch, but added a lighted wreath (picked up on clearance after Christmas last year) and added a burlap bow to it.  Simple.

The basket from my fall home tour remained on the front door.  I filled it with cotton stems and greenery for Christmas.  I brought my olive bucket from the hearth out to the porch and added a pretty little shrub and some lights to it.

 The other end of the porch is a real bear to photograph.  Not only is it long and narrow, but the railing makes it pretty impossible to photograph from the front.

 And wouldn’t you know, that I didn’t notice the crooked ribbon on the pillow until it was too late.  Oops.

I’m kind of in love with the vignette on the table between the chairs.

 I’m also kind of in love with the $1 spot in Target where I found the cutey-patootey burlap snowflake pillow.

The decorations in my foyer are very simple.  Even though there isn’t any glitter on the front porch, I knew there would be in other areas of the house so I started introducing a bit of it by mixing rustic and refined elements in my dough bowl and in one of the zinc planters from my fall mantel.

 The dining room is located right off of the my foyer and this is where I pulled together elements that I already had to create a Pottery Barn inspired centerpiece.  More simplicity.

Mini flocked trees, rustic metal deer, vintage snowball candles, mini candles and candles in tin buckets are intermingled among a pine garland that I snaked along the table.

The nativity scene is located on the sideboard again this year, but I changed it up a bit by adding a rustic garland and wreath with some glittered pinecones and snowflakes to the mirror.

  Here’s where my Christmas decorations develop a split personality.  Kind of like me.   😉

The front of my house is a little bit of natural, a little bit of rustic and a little bit of glitter all mixed together.  But I like to keep things more on the fun side in the back of the house where my family room and kitchen are located.

 Nothing pleases me more than to see the twinkle in the eyes of my grands as they take in the sparkly and fun Christmas tree.  I wouldn’t trade that for anything.

I guess Princess Zoey was ashamed that we don’t have any gifts under the tree yet, so she left one of her squeaky toys for us to play with.

 The snowman head is actually meant to be a tree topper, but I think he’s perfect on the mantel with some puffy faux snow tucked into the lighted garland.

 The island in my kitchen contains a kitchen tree that I started collecting ornaments for last year.  I changed it up a bit from last year by placing it on a wicker tray and by wrapping the base with a Christmas napkin.

 My reproduction vintage toolbox got all Christmasfied with the addition of a favorite plate and Christmas cookbook.

 And lastly is a fun Christmas tablescape on my breakfast table.

 The red HoHoHo burlap that I ran across works perfectly with all of the Christmas dishes that I’ve collected over time.  I wish I had bought more of it!

 The snowmen usually reside on the windowsill in my kitchen.  But placed on a glass cake stand with some ornaments and faux snow, they make a great centerpiece for the table.

The snowflake placemats that my mom made, dishes that I’ve been collecting and candy canes all work together to create a fun and whimsical table.
