The French country Christmas tour continues today. If you missed part 1, you can start here. The rest of the house has more traditional colored decor.
Below, my front doors are decorated for the season.
In the entryway, my little French market basket is full of poinsettias.
I put a fresh cedar garland a top of my Christmas mantel. It smelled so delightful! I had not yet found my stockings from the move when I took this picture!
I tucked these little berries into the garland. I love the pops of red they add!
I love these little natural nutcrackers – these are years old but sometimes I see similar ones show up at Homegoods.
In the family room sits the big tree. This tree is a 10′ flocked tree. It is just so beautiful. I have tried to stick with more traditional and vintage appearing glass and wooden ornaments on this tree.
A closer look at some of the ornaments. A lot of these ornaments have red on them – I love how they pop against the flocked tree. Many of them have sentimental value – the little wooden snowman is from a trip to Germany. The red and gold crown is from a trip to Sweden. The red rose is from a trip to Southern California when we went to Disneyland – reminds me of Belle (although not a Disney ornament!). Ornaments are great little souvenirs to take home from your travels!
I love this little glass snowman!
A last look at the big tree.
A few baubles and boxes are part of the decorations in this room.
This season I tucked the dough bowl under the tv and filled it with mercury glass ornaments.
Not all of my Christmas decor is French country! Here are some of my Christmas village pieces that sit under the tv. I love the whimsy of the shoe house! They are Department 56 but I picked them off of eBay for a fraction of the price, so look there for some bargains!
Let’s take a look in the dining room. I draped garland on the table – I will do a Christmas tablescape but haven’t decided what to do yet… so this simple centerpiece is perfect for now!
I set out a few cookies for the photoshoot – also perfect for a hungry photographer (that would be me!).
I love pomanders! These ones are actually fake, well, kind of. The orange is fake but the cloves are real! I was surprised when I opened them from their box and a clove scent filled the air. I have a tutorial on how to make pomanders here.
I placed some faux greenery and some of my German snowmen in the cabinet.
This tree was courtesy of Tree Classics last year. This year I added garland and kept the colors to gold and silver. The bejeweled snowflake topper is new! I hung a garland that states “greetings” in this tree.
I love this little paper flower ornament that clips on the branches.
Well, one last look at the dining room…
