Happy Monday, friends! 😀
I’m sharing some photos of our living and dining rooms decked out for Christmas here on the blog today, and if you’d like to see the video tour, just head over to my Stories on Instagram at 2pm CST. (My handle is @LetteredCottage)
We went with a woodsy vibe this year, and I really love how cozy it feels! My friend, Evan, came over and helped me add all the live greenery the other day and it really kicked up the cozy factor!
I used trees from Hobby Lobby in plant pots (also from Hobby Lobby) on the mantel. I also layered in the arched window my Great Grandpa Stauffenberg salvaged from an old church he tore down many, many years ago. The cute little sign was made by precious Susie Harris. The ball garland came from Hobby Lobby last year and the stockings are from HomeGoods and Crate & Barrel.
Here’s a link to this cute throw pillow: Christmas Tree Pillow It’s one of my favorite things in the living room! 🙂
Another one of my favorite things is the centerpiece. It’s an old crate I picked up at Amy’s Antiques, filled with yarn balls (thanks for wrapping those, Evan!) and a small cake stand with candles on it. The evergreen sprigs tucked in the corners are the perfect finishing touches!
I’ll be back tomorrow with some fun and simple placeholder ideas that Evan and I dreamed up too. See you over on Instagram in the meantime! XO
PS- Here are links to some of the things we used in our home!
