Come on in y’all and take a look at my Christmas Decor!
Christmas is fast approaching, and I have finally finished my decorating! I always feel so accomplished when I am able to sit on my couch and soak in the comfort and joy the decorations bring me. I hope that y’all feel the same way when you decorate for Christmas. I never want to feel like it is a task or chore. There is always magic in the air as I bring a vision to life.
This year, my life was changed during my trip to Paris. If there is one place to put on your bucket list- Paris should be it. I was inspired by the city of lights and love for my Christmas decor this year. There is so much history in the city, as well as a chicness that can’t be matched. I knew I had to convey this in my decor!
So let’s jump right in!!!
If y’all read my post about neutral Christmas decor, then you obviously read about my obsession with flocked trees! I ordered these babies from King of Christmas, and let me say, they were everything I imagined and more! Even with no decorations or tree skirts, they are beautiful and bring me so much joy. I will never buy any other tree again! I love the two pencil trees instead of one large tree. I felt like it gave this space more depth and visual appeal.
Here are my decorated trees! I added more lights to the trees, even though I found the original amount to be adequate. I am just obsessed with lights- what can I say?!?! The main inspiration of my decor theme came from the music sheets. I found them in the Target Dollar Spot!
They were a banner that I cut up and used as individual ornaments. I’ve never used anything unconventional on my trees before, and I thought they brought such a Parisian flair. My other ornaments are a mixture from Pier One and Kirklands.
The music sheets add to the neutral theme I was looking to achieve. I knew once I bought them, I was going to use burlap, galvanized metal, and glam it up with some gold and crystal. Parisian style is all about incorporating old and new; rustic and glam. It speaks to my soul. It’s such a beautiful balance.
How could I not incorporate an Eiffel Tower?!?! I found these jewels at Pier One, and I wanted to put 100 on my trees, but I used every bit of willpower inside me to not go crazy lol.
I had seen so many “non-traditional” tree skirts making their way through my social media feeds, that I knew this trend was going to be perfect with my decor theme. It took me a while to find the perfect options. At first, I was sold on galvanized buckets as tree skirts, but I struggled to find ones that were large enough and would look right with the trees. I found the basket for my 5ft tree at Target! I saw it and knew immediately it would look perfect. When I brought it home, and put my tree in it, I was so overjoyed with the character it brought to the room.
As I was sitting on my couch, staring at the trees trying to figure out what to use for the 7ft tree an idea hit me! I bought an amazing faux fur throw from Pottery Barn a little while back, and knew that it was going to be the perfect addition to the decor- rustic and glam- basket and faux fur!
Ok- last close up of the tree decor! I just couldn’t help myself with getting an awesome close up of this awesome ornaments from Kirklands!
Moving on to the fireplace! The clock and the lanterns are decor pieces that are always there year round. I wasn’t taking the clock down because it fit perfectly with the theme, and well, it was a beast to get centered on the wall! I took out the candles that are usually in the lanterns and replaced them with ornaments.
I had an entirely different plan for the mantle, but I found this galvanized chicken feeder at a vintage store and knew it was going to fit perfectly! From there, I wanted to continue adding the rustic and glam. My favorite piece in this picture? The awesome Joyeux Noel bucket with the birch logs. Every time I look at it a smile erupts!
Just in case you couldn’t get enough- here is a close up!
When I saw the mercury glass trees, I just knew I had to have them! When I got them home, I realized they had twinkling lights in them- score! They emit a more gold glow when the lights are turned on! The birch log set was something that I had purchased early on, and knew I wanted to use them in my Christmas decor somehow, some way.
Finally, the farmhouse pitcher was a new purchase that I plan on using year round. I definitely struggled with finding something to put inside because of it’s height. I ended up finding a neutral garland that I cut into stems and I was so pleased with how it turned out!
When I found the chicken feeder it already had the pine cones in it. I added lights because well, I already told y’all I am addicted! I found some faux fur garland to place under the chicken feeder for a little glam! The iced berry garland was the perfect balance I needed for the space!
The gold ornaments against the wood lantern spoke to me, so I had to snap a close up!
Ahhhhhh, this space brings me so much joy, both day and night!
This decor bowl and globes came from Kirklands, and I added the ornaments and pine cones to tie everything together! Oh- do you see the ho ho ho pillow in the background? LOVE IT!
Hot chocolate anyone? I knew I wanted this added to my eat in kitchen area when I found this adorable printable! Nothing says Christmas like hot chocolate with all the fixings!
Ok, I bombed my neutral theme on my table in the eat in kitchen! I had used these glittery red berries on my tree last year. I had an idea to cut up the tree stems and use them in this box, and I am so happy I did. They are so pretty! I was mad at myself for adding the red, but once I added the candles and pine cones, I knew it had to stay!
Another view of the eat in kitchen area! See that lovely little gingerbread house in the background? It is the artistic production from my soon to be 3 year old. The dusting on the table? That would be hot chocolate mix! He was inspired to “pour” hot chocolate on the roof, and now I am finding it EVERYWHERE!
I’m pretty sure I don’t need to take my child out of school to become an artist just yet lol. I couldn’t help myself from adding this in the post because it was our first attempt at gingerbread house building, and well, I think we nailed it 🙂
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my Christmas decor as much as I enjoyed creating it! I hope that y’all have an amazing Christmas, celebrating with those you love! Take it all in, enjoy the moment, and don’t forget to make magical memories!
