Merry and Bright Holiday Home Tour Part 3

December 14, 2016


Hey friends, today is the last part to our Merry and Holiday Home Tour. If you missed the beginning of this home tour blog hop, you can find Part 1 and Part 2.

If you’re coming here from visiting Meg at Green with Decor, welcome! Last week, I shared my Christmas tablescape. Today, I’m joining my blogger friends again and sharing some other areas in our home including the play room and kitchen. 

A big thanks goes to Paper Mart and Silk Plants Direct for sponsoring the Merry and Bright Holiday Tour.  I was provided free products by both PaperMart and Silk Plants Direct but all thoughts, ideas and opinions are my own.  I’ve also added some affiliate links for your convenience.


The playroom in our home has some gorgeous bay windows. Every Christmas, it houses our large Christmas tree because it fits perfectly in that space. Since it faces the front of our home, you can see all the beautiful sparkly lights from all of the windows outside. Instead of using a traditional tree skirt, I placed our gray pom pom blanket around it. 


Every year, I allow the kids to decorate this tree. I had an ombre vision in mind with a lot of white and silver. The kids did a great job helping me decorate the tree by placing the blue ornaments at the bottom and gradually fading them into the pearly white ones on top. Thankfully, they came arranged that way in the box so it made it a lot easier to delegate. I decorated our church’s Christmas tree last year with a similar pattern and I loved it so much I added it to our home this year.

I added some of my blue and white chinoiserie pieces to complement the blue in the tree. 

holiday-tour-christmas-decor-loveyourabode-30 holiday-tour-christmas-decor-loveyourabode-34The gift wrapping paper, blue velvet ribbon and the feathers all came from Papermart. I wanted to keep the look simple and consistent. 





I added some fluffy snow and kept it visually interesting with some icy branches on top. I used sparkly silver ribbon I already had on hand and weaved it throughout the tree to give it an iridescent glow. 


The large faux boxwood wreaths were sent to me by Silk Plants Direct and they are simply stunning just as it is. I added some red velvet ribbon and just used a thumbnail tack to pin them above the windows. 


This is the only clean part of the play room. I kid you not, I shoved everything to the other side to take this shot. HA! 


In the kitchen, I kept it simple and changed out the ribbon on my boxwood wreaths. I sewed those window panels last year when I found a bolt of designer fabric for dirt cheap. 


All of my baking ingredients made a reappearance on the counter after being in the cabinets. I need them to be easily accessible during the colder months when I tend to bake a lot. I even pulled out my Kitchen Aid mixer since it matches some of the Christmas red I have throughout the home this season. The Kitchen Aid Mixer is currently on sale right now for a great price. This appliance is so handy if you’re an avid baker. 

Similar Glass Canisters and Chalk Labels


Last week, I posted how I created a simple hot chocolate bar with some simple ingredients. This simple tray is perfect for family and guests during Christmas time so they can easily help themselves. Fill them with homemade marshmallows and salted caramel to take them up a notch. It’s a crowd pleaser for sure!




Hope you enjoyed the last part of the tour!
