It’s Christmas home tour part two time! Last week I shared a version of our moody holiday mantel that I created back in October for the Home Depot Style Challenge. I took that down just in time for Halloween and waited until the day after Thanksgiving to start our real Christmas decorating. Some people are finicky about when holiday decor should go up. I really don’t have an opinion on it. I usually start putting it up when I feel like the time is right. Last year that was before Thanksgiving and this year it was after.
Christmas Decorating Ideas:
For the garland, I used a real strand of garland and then added twig and berry branches that I clipped from a tree in our yard.
The Christmas tree is pretty bare – a few strands of lights and twig and berry branches. I really like the it’s simplicity though.
I used the same technique for the mantel garland as the bar cart garland – natural garland with twig/berry branches (and lights).

And our moody holiday mantel that I tried to keep the same but changed a bit…
Up next on the tour is Doreen from Hymns & Verses! Below is the lineup for today. I will be updating each day this week.
