Holiday Decororations Tour

Hi Foxy Friends! I know you've all been waiting for this...okay not really. And truth be told, I didn't finish decorating until yesterday so I could do this post for there you have it #alwaysbehind. Anyway, I got it up, so that's what counts, right? So let's get started. One day I'll do a video on it, but today is not that day.

This is considered our "Fancy" Christmas Tree. I actually took a picture before putting up the garland on the stairs so you can see it a little better. Also if you want to see a video on how I decorate this tree, click here.

I also do garland on the stair case. I think next year I might add some more to it, I'm ready to add more, I ran out of time this year...I feel like the days are just swishing by!

Then we have a Christmas tree upstairs that is for all of the ornaments that we get from family and friends and the ones that I had growing up. It's fun to put them on the tree with the kids each year and explain each ornament to them. They love hearing the stories.

Moving onto the tree in the black carpet room (what my daughter calls it), we put a tree in here, becasue typically it is where we set up the drinks and dessert for Christmas dinner, and it's just fun to have a tree there. My mom came over and decorated this one, birthday themed for Baby Fox.

Mr. and I also do a themed birthday tree where we put his birthday gifts. Here are the themes over the years. This year is going to be Lego, we haven't put it up for him yet. Usually we do it on a random night so he can wake up to it. This is from 2015

Last year I saw someone put wreaths on their kitchen cabinets and I knew I wanted to do it again. But I forgot, until Andrea reminded me when she put them on her kitchen cabinets. Copied. This might be my new favorite addition this year. I don't ever want to take it down...

I got the wreaths (they're called Grapevine Wreaths if you wanted to know). You can find them here or here. The ones found here, come in different sizes. So the wreaths on the bigger doors are 8" and the wreaths on the smaller doors are 6", in case you wanted to know.

Our mantel is fun, I just love a good decorated mantel.

We have our manger set up on the table just by the front door. I'm thinking I want to change out that picture so it's holiday themed...

Back to the kitchen, this is where we display our Christmas cards. You can see how I did it here.

If you want to know how to make the cute clips, click here and here.

And last thing I'm going to share are these fake canvas prints I made. I made them for less than $5, I feel better about that, because I only hang them for a couple of months out of the year.

You can see a glimpse over to the right the area behind my kitchen sink. Truth be told I did half of these decorates yesterday. I didn't get around to finishing the area behind my sink. But when I do, I'll make sure to update this post for you!
