I was so excited when Stacy from Not Just a Housewife asked me to join her Christmas Home Tour this year! I haven't been blogging in the way that I used to. It's been about a year since my focus shifted to my family and to my interiors business. But keeping connected and also, loving blogging is still a passion of mine, and this was just the right time to jump back to share a fun Christmas Tour of my home. (I'm also super excited about 2017: linking up my blog with my design business, to share more of my client renovations/builds and for a partnership between the blog, tv spots and business).
For today's Home Tour, there are several bloggers participating, so be sure to see them all! The next blogger on the tour stop is linked up at the bottom of this post. They are all so creative!!!
My tour starts with a Christmas Wreath Making Party that I hosted last week. It was a Clients & Friends Open House, a fun little morning, making Christmas Wreaths with florist Lizy Bowden.
Each year I always add fresh greens, pine cones and other natural elements to my decorating.
Somehow, it makes my home come alive for the holidays. The scent, the texture...it makes my other Christmas decor seem less stiff, less just like stuff, less artificial actually. So, throughout these photos you'll see the use of Cedar, Bay and Pine.

Now that the red tables are put away, and I've dragged my sofa back into the room, I'll be sharing a few more photos on my Instagram account today!
Hop over, follow my feed and see my Insta Stories for some of the details about what's on my tree, how I style my coffee table for the holidays and of course, WHERE I put my wreath (and HOW I hang my wreaths)!
Thank you for coming over to my house!
