I am really enjoying the Holiday Season this year. My home is all decked out, my gifts are bought and my baking has begun! I love everything about the Christmas Season.
For this year’s Christmas Home Tour, I thought I would divide it into several different posts and share a room or two at a time.
So here we go, Welcome to the Family Room Christmas Tour 2015!
The Family Room is where we have our main tree. When my oldest was born, my husband was so excited to have a son, he went out and bought a 13 foot live tree. It was huge and all I kept thinking was, “How will I ever decorate this thing?” I remember my husband saying, “Just this once we can have a large tree.” Well, that was 20 years ago, and some things never change. It has become a tradition. We always have a large live tree in the family room. This is where we leave our cookies and milk for Santa and he leaves our gifts under this tree.
We leave cookies and milk for Santa on the hearth of the fireplace.
It took us almost 2 hours to get this tree in the tree stand properly. That is my least favorite part about having a live tree. Some people complain about the needles dropping and the mess it can make. None of that bothers me. I love the smell of a Christmas tree in the home and it is worth that struggle of getting it into the stand when it’s all decorated!
I usually keep it pretty simple in here. The Tree is the centerpiece in this room. I dress the mantel, the tables and I toss a few Christmas pillows on the sofas and chairs and that’s about it for this room!

I shared my Christmas card holder here on Thrift Shop Thursday. The only other thing I did to the sofa table was add some red berries rings to my candlesticks to give them a festive look.
This is the view into the kitchen from the Family Room. I will be sharing my Christmas Kitchen tomorrow and thought I would give you a little sneak peek. I hope you enjoyed the Family Room Christmas Tour…
I am off to wrap some presents before the Gman gets home from school!
Hope you have a great week.
Until Next Time,
We Party Here:
