Merry Christmas from our New House!

I really haven’t posted many pictures from our new house. We are still trying to figure out where everything goes and whatnot. I always LOVE decorating for Christmas, so I thought I’d show you what I’ve been doing the last couple of weeks. (and so I will be able to reference where I put everything for next year! ha)

 

My new Christmas wreath (The Decorator’s Warehouse)

LOVE LOVE LOVE this giant Nutcracker that Grammy is letting us borrow! There are sparkles in his beard. He is absolutely beautiful.

Our entryway…

The door frames are lined with ribbon and I clip all of our Christmas cards up. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE looking at photo Christmas cards when I walk into someone’s house.

Our nativity scene (We have had to move furniture around to fit the tree in our living room)

Our living room tree. Kinda bummed that we don’t have a mantle anymore, but found this cute stocking holder at Kirklands.

Love this built-in hutch! Perfect for all of my Christmas platters.

My kitchen tree, full of kitchen-y ornaments.

I LOOOOVE being able to look out of my kitchen when I cook. I have windows everywhere. (In our last house, the kitchen was located at the very back)

See our Texas ice/snow? Everything shuts down around here for 1/2” of snow and ice. Gotta love it!

Your home is lovely, especially with all the holiday decor! I love the snowman tree topper! how fun! The wreath on the door is awesome, too!

I love to see all our Christmas cards on display, too. Last year, the kitchen walls, where we usually display our cards, was freshly painted so we didn't hang them up and I hated not seeing them all season. This year, we hung string and did something similar to you and I'm so happy to see them all again! The kids love checking the mail and seeing who the new cards are from and my Daughter loves hanging them up :-)
