Only 8 more day before Christmas is upon us. I finished up my wrapping today which I am so happy to have it done. Every year, I say I am going to wrap as I go but next year I really mean it. I don’t know why I put it off for so long this year. Next up on my to do list is grocery shopping and food prep but not today.
Today, I am continuing my home tour. I am sharing our Christmas kitchen and family room. My kitchen tree is another slim tree and it holds handmade ornaments that the boys made years ago. It is also where I put the ornaments that we picked up on our travels.
Kitchen Christmas Tour
I always place our DIY Christmas Tree sign out first. It kind of kicks off the Holiday season for us. You can see the tutorial here. I also added mini trees to the DIY window wreaths. You can see a bit of the wreath in the photo. It is hard to get a good picture of the windows.
I added some mini Christmas trees and candles to my tray which was a thrift store find.
Another favorite I pull out each year is my husband’s childhood toy truck. I love the little wreath that I added to it last year.
I used a chalk pen to list Santa’s reindeer and added a red pom-pom with a glue dot to complete Rudolph’s name. The Santa going down the chimney and the sled are vintage inspired. They make an appearance every year.
Family Room Christmas Tour
From the kitchen, we will head into the family room. This is the only real tree that we have. I enjoy having a real tree and I don’t find it to be messy at all other than the taking down part. I still think it is totally worth it!
My husband and I still wait until the boys are in bed on Christmas Eve to place the gifts under the tree. Even though two of the three are adults and the third is 15. You are never too old to believe!
I kept the fireplace the same as it was last year. I like the traditional red during the holiday. The yarn tree on the coffee table is new this year. I used the leftover yarn from my braided garland to make this DIY Christmas Tree.
Another DIY Christmas project is the two twig stars I made. I made a large star and a smaller one. The smaller one is on my office tree. I was originally going to put the larger one on my family room tree but it hasn’t made it to the top of the tree yet. Maybe Santa will do it on Christmas Eve!
I picked up this little tree at Homegoods while waiting in line to make a return. Good things can happen while waiting in the checkout line.
My Christmas tour will wrap up tomorrow with a quick glimpse into the sitting room in my master bedroom. Thanks for joining me on the tour of our Holiday Home!
Until Next Time,
