Christmas Decor 2012...

Pin It Now!
Welcome to our holiday home for 2012.
The colour story this year is: red, white and silver, with fresh greenery for contrast and pine cones.
Did you know that a bowl of ornaments is the easiest decorating touch ever?
I bet you did!
A few red & white pillows 'borrowed' from my son's bedroom and an inexpensive dish towel thrown on the coffee table take care of the textiles in the room.
 
It is so hard to get the light just right in the winter for pictures....but at least we have beautiful sunshine.

The subway art in the frame was a free printable from the 3 sisters at Eighteen25. Love their projects.
The tiny poinsettia is from the local grocery store...and is the perfect touch for small side table.

The martini bar got it's own little collection of pretties too.
 Vignettes for the season can make a room feel so festive.
And here's the vignette I created for our dining table.
And no one is supposed to touch the m&ms until the green veggies are eaten!
I like to keep our seasonal decor fairly simple...vignettes and tablescapes do the job just nicely.
I used to hang stuff over windows and doorways, but I have simplified over the years.
And I find I feel happier with simple....less really is more.
Thank you so much for taking a peek at our holiday home!

Very pretty, Angie! I love putting ornaments in anything ~ it does seem like such a simple way to add Christmas to your home. I like how you added pinecones in with yours.

So cute and festive. I agree that less is more - I pulled out a lot less this year and kept it all simple. whenever I think I will add to it...I remember something else I need to be doing! Plus, it will make it easier to put it all away in January. (: We have sun here, too and 80 degree days...

Kim said...

Less is more will definitely be our theme this year. I love simplicity, but don't always achieve it. We have a very busy one year old on the move this year so things will be simple and mostly out of reach. My daughter didn't touch anything, my son, is a menace :) Hoping to tackle our mantle this weekend, my favourite spot to decorate.

If you look closely into the silver ornament, you can see the photographer. Is it you?

Kelli said...

Oh I just love your Christmas decorations!

Everything looks cozy and beautiful! I especially love your red pillows!

jenny said...

I really enjoy your vignette ideas, Angie. I think I'll try doing more things like that. I wrote on my blog about my decision to go super simple with the decorating this Christmas. Could not stand the thought of adding to the clutter I already feel! Simple is so much better, I agree. Thanks, once again, for your wonderful ideas.

I too had a bowl of ornaments and pinecones. I came home from school today to find the dog had destroyed the pinecones. It's the first thing he has ever eaten. Hopefully yours don't meet the same unfortunate end.
