My Christmas decorating approach this year was to keep it simple – I’ve decorated precisely three areas in our home, the entryway, the living room, and our girls’ room and I feel so good about not going overboard. I wanted the holiday decor to feel cohesive so I opted to leave out the red which is new for me. I kind of love the more coastal and laid back holiday vibes that were achieved by going a bit non-traditional with the decor.
Blue and white Christmas Decor
Decorating the entryway is always a must because it’s the first thing you see when you walk through our door. I love this “lovely glorious beautiful Christmas” print that you can snag for free here.
Peighton had fun decorating this cute little mini tree. Millie un-decorates it pretty much daily. I think it’s a fun game for them now.
Moving into the living room, this year I purchased a new faux Christmas tree. After much thought and research, I decided to go with a beautiful flocked tree. I love the snowy look, especially with blue, coastal decor.
I mean, it just absolutely glows.
Sticking with “keeping it simple” theme, I stripped the mantel down and just added some fresh garland.
I added some velvet ribbon to our usual stockings.
I added some more texture with the pillows and throw blankets. I love this cable knit one with fur pom poms.
