2013 Christmas Decor

Howdy! For any of you stopping by to find out if Bobble Head Baby #3 is a boy or a girl, you’re going to have to wait just one more post. I promise, that’s what’s coming next, but in the mean time, I wanted to post pictures of our 2013 Christmas decorations. I know it’s a bit after the fact, but think of it as the entertaining previews before the gender reveal feature film begins.

Predictably, I went with a blue/white/silver color scheme in the dining room:

I was like the decorating Tasmanian Devil this year, so I even did a little vignette on the kitchen table:   DSC_6958

And last, but certainly not least, the mantel, where I reused some of my homemade trees from last year, mixed in a sign made by a good friend of mine, and added a DIY burlap garland festooned with snowflakes:DSC_7158


So there you go. Christmas 2013 is officially a wrap. And now I’m off to bed, because I have to get up early for my ultrasound appointment!!!!! Oh the suspense!

  1. My favorite is your dinning room table. I love those colors. those are the colors I used on my tree. Next is the console table. It’s a good thing to look back over the years.The Holy Family is always my high light of the season. Now I’m waiting for the ultra sound.

    • Thanks, Pearl! I love the colors in the dining room too. My absolute favorite colors. I wish my nativity wasn’t the slightly green color that it is. I never feel like I can use the blue on the mantle too, which is why it always ends up being just neutrals.

  2. I’m excited for our new house, because I am going to ditch some of my old stuff and use some of your decorating tips! I love how light and bright everything looks. We use a lot of greenery, but I’m loving your whites and neutrals with that splash of blue! Beautiful!

  3. oh. and.

    I can’t wait to find out if you’re having a girl or a boy! I know you’re hoping for a boy, so I hope for one for you, too! But most of all praying for another healthy gift from God!
