Tour de Christmas Decorations

For the handful of you that have actually found time to do a little bloggy reading over Christmas -- lucky you, because it's time to show off Christmas decorations! I don't really deck out our entire house (although I'd like to be able to, but I haven't acquired enough stuff). So here is my humble, here-and-there Christmas decor.

Nighttime view from the front porch: 

My drab-to-fab console table gives me even more space to decorate!

Tabletop tinsel trees I made last year

Pretty, glittery containers from Michael's, filled with potpourri (on our TV stand)

Our piano is decorated with some gold pine cones, Christmas cards, candle holders, and one of my cinnamon stick candles.

A fun jingle bell wreath (from Michael's), hung on our dining room mirror with ribbon

My DIY advent wreath/table centerpiece

We don't have many decorations on the outside of our house, but this year I decorated a cheap wreath and we hung it on the eave of our back porch. It's on the south side of the house, so it should be protected from the elements. And it's visible to people driving by the street next to our house, so now they have something nice to look at.

As you can see, our stocking holders are currently stocking-less. But don't worry, they will soon be adorned with some new personalized stockings my mother-in-law is making us for Christmas! I'm pretty excited to see them.

And last but certainly not least, our tree! (We do have presents under it now,
just not when I took these pictures.)

 Merry Christmas everyone!

I prefer minimal decor - yours is perfect for your home. I especially love your tinsel trees, you did a great job on those!

Amanda, I love your tinsel tree, and the outdoor wreath is gorgeous!! I need to do something like that next year. :) Thanks for the visit today!

It's all so pretty! I love the tabletop trees.

Hope you have a happy new year!

Fantastic Christmas decorations. Honestly loved this simple wreath and Christmas tree. Will surely try them for my home d├ęcor. However, for now looking for wedding vendors for my niece’s wedding at one of top Los angeles wedding venues. Have to make her day a grand success.
