our home: living room christmas decorations

I can't believe that Christmas is a week away!  Although I am very behind on shopping for gifts, I am definitely looking forward to a few days off work to catch up with friends and spend some quality time with my family.  As I mentioned the other day, the one thing I finished ahead of time was decorating our house for the holidays.  Therefore, today I wanted to share some pictures of the decorations in the living room.

If you follow this blog or have visited our home, you would definitely notice that the color scheme is mostly light blues, grays, browns, and cream.  Therefore, it is no surprise that most of the holiday decorations around the house are these colors as well.

Because the Christmas decorations are pretty much the same color scheme as our normal decor, Christmas decorating for me ends up being switching out a few things here and there.  For instance, on  the Salvation Army console table, I switched out the table runner for a silver one and switched our blue vase with a silver vase and winter florals.  The lamp, mirror, and filigree urn stayed and I added the snow globe and silver stars for a festive touch.

My favorite decorations are the three silver mirror stars.  They were a great Salvation Army find for $3!

In the front window are the two burlap wreaths I made a couple weeks ago {see here}.

This past summer I posted {here} that I loved this "Hey Y'all" print from Stephanie Creekmur on Etsy.  My mom, being the awesome mom that she is, saw the post and ordered one for me!  The print is now hanging above our wine rack and is the first thing people see when they come in the front door! 

For the top of the wine rack, I added a candle and holder from Cost Plus and a mini tree I had left over from the dining room decorations {see here}.  The gold star serving dish is a thrift store find from the circus themed baby shower I hosted this past summer {see here}.

For the fireplace mantel, I decorated a 6 ft garland with some extra ornaments I had from the tree.  The best part of the fireplace this year is that I finally replaced my mismatched cheap-o Target stockings {see here} with some color coordinated ones I found at Home Goods.  They look so much better than last year!

And last but not least…the tree.  Here is the tree during the day,

And here is what it looks like at night...

And here are the decorations all together….
