I am excited to show you the Christmas
tree tree’s in our Front Room which we call the Family Room too because this is where we gather as a family to read, play and dance. And today is another stop on our Seasons of Home Series hosted by Ella Claire Inspired. I did some rearranging in this room for the Christmas Season and I have to say I love the change! Just moved pillows from one room to the other and wala! viola! tada! A new room!
I keep saying this room reminds me of a giant sweater with all the yarn, felt, fur and texture. Just super cozy and warm- because in a 1950’s house the more throws the better!
We partnered with HomeGoods to share some unique finds we used in our Christmas Tree and Family Room. We have a really great HomeGoods near us, it is packed to the brim and I love that they have so much to choose from. I didn’t really have a plan for this space of what I wanted to do. Until I spotted that little felt mouse- Christmas tree ornament. I wanted our tree to be whimsical, youthful and colorful for our little girls. Finn isn’t into the decor as much yet. Although it took some training and coaching to get him to stop trying to pull the glass balls off the tree! But he totally learned and hasn’t touch the tree again.
That is the coffee table I moved from upstairs to this room. Nice to have a solid surface for wrapping gifts and stacking all the Christmas books. (Find Cement Top Coffee Table HERE).
And I love to use leftover wallpaper for our Christmas Wrapping Paper.
I just got that nativity set (found it HERE). We had one before but it the Shepherds some casualties. So I decided to invest in a really nice one this year that we would use forever.
I found the perfect basket to put our Flocked Christmas Tree in at HomeGoods. I took the stand off the tree and Kevin helped me to stuff blankets and pillows around the base really tight to keep it from falling. I do think it helps that is against a wall.
I have been collecting those bottle brush trees and found the one with the big pearls at Home Goods.
I kept the tree simple with chunky yarn instead of ribbon, I like the whimsy of it with the playful felt ornaments.
This right here is why I create a cozy home. For them. I want them to remember how they felt in our home. And the Christmas Season makes it all the more memorable. Also can they just stay little?
Not to mention the felt ornaments were light and easy for the kids to put on the tree. I had some glass ornaments I have collected over the years I mixed in for a different texture. I found the large pink glass balls at HomeGoods this year.
If I can find an extra spot to mix in more twinkle lights and trees I am all for it. I find one of the best ways to decorate for Christmas is to take out a lot of your everyday decor. That is what I did on our bookcases. Really tried to simplify and only keep things in the room that went with my Christmas look so nothing clashed with the colors in our Christmas tree.
I did pick up those soft fur pillows to add into our Christmas look and these will carry through all winter. Oh and can we just talk about the amazing pink throw? I was in my car and had to get back out to go get it. Because we all know that at HomeGoods things do not last long! I always error on the side of getting too much then I can take back a few things that I don’t end up using. Better safe than sorry! #lessonoftheday 🙂
