Welcome to the 2016 Christmas Home Tour part I.
If you are coming over from Sarah’s stunning home at Life on Virginia Street welcome to Decor To Adore!
This is the third year I have participated in the home tours hosted by my dear friend Marty of A Stroll Thru Life. Each year I try to design a fresh look by using existing Christmas décor paired with new DIYs.
This year I decided to create a vintage pastel pink and aqua theme in the formal living spaces at Storybook Cottage.
The Dining Area
I spent several hours creating this felt “Weiner Wonderland” table runner.
It brings a smile to everyone who sees it.
The runner is even interactive. You can lift up the ears to see a hidden gold collar. Because I believe dinner parties should be fun.
The gold polka dot tableware also adds a jolly touch.
Over on the sideboard, the pink and aqua theme continues.
Cookies just seem to taste sweeter when they’re pink.
Across the way is the entry.
I made the vintage Shiny Brite wreath a few years ago. It moves to a new location every year.
I am totally smitten with this gold glitter vintage Santa. He joins the Putz houses I’ve made over the years.
Over on the mantel tinsel trees sparkle and shine.
I shared how I made the $2 Snowman Garland just last week.
The mantel is reflected in the bar cart mirror.
You can easily make your own drink stirrers to match any color theme.
Let it snow!
O Christmas Tree
Of course, the star of the show is the Christmas tree which aptly has a star on top.
The star tree topper was made a few years ago.
But I finished this new tree skirt just last week.
The Santa detail makes me smile. A Blue Christmas indeed. For details go HERE.
I hope you have enjoyed this years Christmas tour. Be sure to head next to Haneen’s Haven. Her lovely home is one you don’t want to miss.
You can see our Cozy Christmas Bedroom Tour HERE.
