In this post I’m sharing my Christmas Twinkle Lights Home Tour with some shots taken at night. I think it’s the 5th year that I’ve participated in Rachel of Maison de Pax‘s Christmas Nights Tour. You can see my tour from last here HERE and although I didn’t do a lot of obvious changes there are some indeed!
If you’re visiting from Lauren at Blesser House, welcome in!
So…honestly I’ve been a homemaker for so many years now that I think I’ve done every style when it comes to decorating for Christmas! Yep…I’ve done the red and white, the overload of vintage Shiny Brites, the pink, the real tree filled with family ornaments and more. Last year I put up two trees in the living room, but these days I’m paring down. I don’t have shots of the outside, but see the palm tree with the twinkle lights?
My collection of pastel houses hasn’t made an appearance in years, so it’s nice to see them again in the living room. One of the things I love most about decorating for Christmas is bringing out the bins. When you open them up it’s like visiting with old friends!
Christmas Twinkle Lights Home Tour – Dining Room
Heading out of the front hallway away from the living room is the dining room. It’s not huge and not formal but ahhh, the view!
Simple once again, with a faux noble fir tree that I’ve had for several years. I’ll be linking some similar items below and if you’re still shopping you’re likely to find some great deals right now!
I picked up some fresh pine scraps from the tree lot and put them in a large vintage crock. Since the tree is faux, this definitely brings in that fresh tree scent!
These bottle brush trees were found during my recent trip to Waco at Magnolia Market. You can read more about that in this post. I really enjoy purchasing holiday decor when I travel. It’s fun to recall trips when the Christmas decor bins come out.
I can’t get enough of this huge vintage copper confiture bowl and thought why not fill it with ornaments!
There are about 3,682 bins of Christmas ornaments in the garage… or so it seems. The colors that I selected this year were soft metallics.
Other than the bottle brush trees I haven’t purchased anything new this year. Therefore I got creative and added ribbon that I had to all of the old wreaths. Adding ribbon to change up the look of a wreath is a great hack! Just vary the color each year and save yourself from buying new.
In the kitchen is the only place that you’ll see some red.
The Santa mugs are true vintage that I’ve had for years. There are lots of new reproductions available now…check below!
Red roses from my husband and a small fresh cedar tree that I planted in a French cast iron urn.
Last but not least is the master bedroom and this is the room that looks different from last year. We went with a flocked tree that we had (THIS ONE) and I kept it naked. Honestly loving this simple look of just Christmas twinkle lights and not much more! Head on over to Cherished Bliss who is next on today’s tour…
And there you have it! Wish you and those you love peace and joy this holiday season!
See more holiday homes all lit up at night…
