Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This week I am so excited to team up with some of my bloggy buddies for the Home for the Holidays Tour, hosted by my dear friend Sondra Lyn! There are so many inspiring projects that will be shared throughout the week– you can catch the full list at the end of the post.
Now, some people get excited about shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. Not this girl. I have something else on my mind. You see, since Black Friday kicks off the start of the holiday season, I get most excited not about shopping, but about decorating! And of course one of the areas of my home that I can’t wait to get to is my dining room hutch.
You’ve seen the hutch look many different ways over the past few months. It was aqua and white for fall…
Then I added some copper accents for Thanksgiving…
And now here we are at Christmas already! Like the rest of my Christmas decor this year, I went with a “classic Christmas” look– lots of red, green, and white with metallic accents here and there.
Not only do I love traditional holiday colors because they remind me of fun memories from Christmases past, but I also love them because they were my wedding colors! Donnie and I got married two days before Christmas almost nine (!) years ago, and with a wedding date of December 23rd, your color scheme is pretty much picked for you. I’m honestly not usually a red girl, but I loved it for our big day! I actually wrote a little series about our Christmas wedding here if you’d like to check out the details. 🙂
As usual, I mostly used items I had around the house to decorate the hutch for the season. Along with our white dishes and a few silver-y ones, I added in some red and metallic ornaments from my stash, extra berry sprigs I had leftover from decorating other spaces, and some fresh greens that my dad, the outdoorsman, was nice enough to gather for me on one of his trips into the woods.
The monogrammed mug was a Home Goods find and I’m not sure I’ve actually used it for drinking yet– just for decorating! Because priorities. 🙂
Deep in my Christmas bins, I found this cute little tricycle. I love when I find little pieces that I have forgotten about! It is the perfect size for the hutch and is just so cute!
I topped off the whole thing with a little felt ball garland that I snagged from Home Decorator’s Collection– the perfect finishing touch!
Christmas is most definitely one of my favorite seasons to decorate for, so be prepared for many, many more decorating posts coming up over the next few weeks! AND you can pop around today and visit some of my friends’ gorgeous homes decorated for the holidays!
