Christmas at Our House!

Hard to believe that Christmas is only 14 days away with it being 70 degrees outside this past week!!! Regardless of the weather, we have finally finished our Christmas decorations!  Ive got TONS of pictures and wanted to share what we've been working on!

The tricky part about our house is I have to find ways to decorate without using red and green items! I like our decorations to match our everyday decor so it requires lots of crafty projects, spray paint, and sparkle!

Garrett and I laughed hysterically when we first brought in our tree! We asked for an 8' but walked away with 9' and had to do some trimming....


Here is the finished tree...

Garrett says it looks like a winter wonderland... (Probably code for "Lauren, you went overboard!")
This is a panoramic view of our Christmas Winter Wonderland! :)

And here are some photos of the individual spaces...















Some of the details....

On our gallery wall, I switched out a couple photos with Christmas printables! 
I also put a glittery mat to make it a little more festive! Easy and cheap!

I painted one of my favorite Christmas songs onto a mirror using a gold paint pen! It is hard to capture on camera! Dedicating this project to my wonderful Aunt Nook! I have distinct memories singing this song with her in her car with the windows down! Go tell it on the mountain!

Another quick project that I did this year was make tons of these pom poms! They are so easy to make! (Hmm...Might have to do another blog post of a tutorial!) 

I love to stick fresh greenery anywhere I can! The smell is wonderful and its a great, easy space filler! Beside it are some faux snowballs I made!

My favorite ornaments hanging from the bar using twine! 

I also set out my brooch bouquet that I carried for our wedding last year! It reminds me of our big day and instantly makes me feel wonderful! 

Our stockings ready to be filled...

This is a new wreath I got this year from West Elm! I also purchased the felt garland which I absolutely LOVE! 

Merry Christmas!!!
