Well, this year is the first Christmas I can’t really have everyone over due to the circumstances that we’re all facing right now. BUT, I’m excited that I can welcome you into our home virtually this year! Let’s pretend you’re here IRL, and I’ll give you a tour. Welcome, friend!

Learn how to put together a fresh greenery Christmas wreath that looks full and gorgeous with this easy wreath hack!

Front Porch

Our front door decor is simple with an easy greenery wreath hack, a fresh garland, some faux boxwood, and a red-striped entry mat. The mat is from IKEA, and I painted it to give it a festive look. You can find the DIY here on my YouTube video!

Entry Decor

Inside, I’ve decorated our IKEA hack storage unit with wrapped presents and faux greenery. YEP, I totally moved the wreath and mat inside when I shot this photo because I didn’t have time to find a new one before I took this picture! Over the mirror area a couple of faux spruce branches from Michaels a couple of years ago.

Dining Room

Now, come on in to our dining room! I love this space, and decorating it for Christmas is so much fun.

Even though it’ll only be our immediate family for Christmas dinner this year, I think making the dining room feel extra special and festive is important. I know my daughters love all the cozy, sparkly accents in here!

The table and area rug are from The Brick, the settee is from a local shop several years ago, the tree is from Costco a few years ago, the glasses & candlesticks are thrifted, and the faux pine garland is from Michaels last year. I love all the frosty greenery, and the gold and green combo.

For name cards, I made these monogram tags with my Cricut Joy and tied them to some metallic bottle brush trees from the dollar store.

I made this DIY oversized pom-pom wreath last year, and I love how it looks over our side table with a simple hot cocoa / coffee station. It really pulls all the green and gold tones together.

Simple place settings with DIY linen napkins and gold coloured cutlery make this table feel fancy and ready for a Christmas Eve dinner. The chargers are from Michaels a few years ago, the white plates are old from Walmart, and the green plates are by Lenox. I love that I was able to mix & match items I already had to create this look.

Living Room Decor

Moving in to the living room, you’ll see that I’ve used tones of blue, silver and rose gold. I’ve pretty much used every colour of the rainbow in this year’s Christmas decor and I love it!

Here are more details on our “My Favourite Things” themed tree, and click here to read more about our asymmetrical mantel decor. I love this mix of rustic and glam, especially at Christmas time.

Aren’t the tiny red presents Little B wrapped under the tree the cutest?! My girls also helped decorate this tree this year.

A combo of cozy textures helps keep this room feeling warm and inviting, and some boho themed accents like the basket, sisal rug and tabletop decor are an interesting addition.

We’ve already spent so much time here snuggled up by the fire this season!

Breakfast Nook Table

Finally, let me show you are breakfast nook decorated for a Christmas morning brunch.

I kept this space feeling whimsical and fun with lots of bright colours and cute accents.


For a table centerpiece, I loaded up this old cupcake stand with homemade cupcakes and DIY dyed bottle brush trees in reds, pinks and greens.

Simple place settings with happy red & cream buffalo plaid napkins from April Cornell are a bright and festive touch.

Thanks for visiting my home today! I hope you enjoyed the tour and got some simple Christmas decorating ideas for your own home this season.

  1. Your home is absolutely gorgeous, and I love all of your Christmas decor! I think your dining room has to be my favorite space of all! When my kids were younger they always wanted to put up our old, tacky Christmas decorations. Now that most of them are moved out of the house, I can decorate a little minimally, which makes it a less overwhelming task.
