Sugarplum Christmas

Hello friends, and welcome to Christmas in our home! I'm thrilled to be taking part in the Holiday Home Tour blog hop, hosted by my dear friend, Chris. If you're coming over from Emily's, at 11 Gables, then welcome to our colorful house! We've had our decor up for a few weeks, so we're in a full blown Christmas frenzy now....we're talking Griswald proportions! Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I'm prone to it.

I'll let the overload of photos do most of the talking...so pour yourself some cocoa, spike it if you can, and poke around our house...I promise I won't report you as a stalker.

Thanks to our allergies, most of the greenery inside the house is fake...but I do grab free branches from the Home Depot tree tent as filler.

Next to the ornaments my kids have made through the years, my favorite things to unpack each Christmas are the nativity scenes...we have about 10 scattered around the house...each holding different memories.

Some serve as bookends and table top decor...I love seeing my daughter playing with this one, using her little voice as Mary and Joseph! When she was little, she used to walk around with Baby Jesus clutched in her chubby hand, and showering him with kisses. Can you even stand the cuteness?!

In an effort to simplify this season, I only unpacked about half of our decor. It's amazing how such small touches like bowls of ornaments make the whole place so festive, with so little effort.

Is there anything better than Christmas music playing, and cookies in the oven?

We have a double-mantel, so the family stockings hang in the Family Room...aka, the room where football plays all weekend long. I was guilty this time since my Frogs were on...go ahead and check that score! But don't get me started, I'm still ticked about the playoff announcement. #wewererobbed ;)

But enough about football...and the rest of the house for that matter....we know it's all about the tree! I loved last year's ombre tree so much, we created it again. But this time, it's accented with black and white stripes. Because, duh, they're black and white stripes.

Balls in bowls, and more balls on antlers....doesn't get much simpler than that! #twss

To go with the black and white theme, I used last year's {DIY} No Sew Pom Pom Tree Skirt (say that five times fast) tutorial, and applied it to a checked tablecloth I found at H&M.

  7. I'm allergic to pine too! Like emergency room trip allergic! It sucks because I would love to have a real tree at least once...and a real wreath. Ah...your house is as gorgeous as always Cassie. I love the trees in your entry way.

  22. I love all the color you bring in. It's so happy and fun. And beautiful. I have an allergy to evergreen trees so no real trees or decor in my house much to my husbands dismay. I am a Bama girl and will always be a Crimson Tide fan, but I do not understand how TCU can be #3, then fall to #6! I watched the show where they explained it. I don't understand the new ranking system at all.

  25. I love your house! But I must say.... Roll Tide Roll! Sorry u brought up football :)

  26. So stinkin' cute! I love the ombre tree and diy tree skirt. I may have to steal your free branches from Home Depot idea. I have some glass jars sitting around just waiting for a purpose! Also, my niece used to do the same thing with my mother-in-law's Nativity Scene. She'd carry around the tiny baby Jesus and treat him like a little baby doll. Too cute!

  27. You need to come to my house and do this!!! Luke told me the other day, why cant we have a Christmas decorated house, everyone else has one? Let's at least turn on Christmas music to get in the spirit." I feel terrible! We always celebrate in Sweden and rush out the decor the day before Christmas when we arrive. And this year a temporary overfilled rental just doesn't inspire me to do it. But I promised him as soon as we move in the new house, I'll we'll go all out on Christmas decor. He would be BEYOND jealous to see your house!

  28. That ombre tree is AMAZING , as is your whole christmas tour. Curious about the free pines from HD? Is this something you have to ask them for or is there a section that they keep free trims in?

  29. Hello Cassie!! I love your son peeking out of the front door and all of the fun colors -- such a festive, happy home. Merry Christmas!

  31. I love the whole tour.. but my favorite items are the pom pom garland and the tree candles!

  32. I think my favorite part is the sentimentality of the nativities. And I love your daughter's henna, how fun! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. You've done a beautiful job! I especially love all the little pops of color you have added into your decor. And I have to ask, is that a Felt Ball Garland you have hanging on your fireplace?!

  35. Gorgeous tour Cassie! I love all the bright colors you use. Your tree is killer!

  36. Cassie, your home looks gorgeous. I love those little handmade ornaments and the nativity scenes. I bet those hold precious memories. And finally kudos to you for holding back half the decor. I need to try that next year.

Your comments are like popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive thoughts! xoxo, cass
