I hope you saw the first tour and decided to come back for more decorating ideas. There were just too many pictures to add so I decided to make this a two parter. If you’re new to my blog, welcome! I thought it would be fun to add some frequently asked Christmas questions as well. In my next holiday post, you will specifically see my trees and it will be broken down into how I decorate each tree step by step. Snuggle up and enjoy the last part of the tour.
How did you decide on your theme for this year? I found several pieces of inspiration such as a plaid box, a buffalo check pillow and a great ribbon and decided to use these items to build a plaid theme for this year. I was so excited because plaid seemed to be everywhere even in a ton of fall looks. I had no trouble finding everything from plates to wrapping paper. I had a blast creating the look I was going for. I hope you like it too.
You should never overlook details like setting a gorgeous table. You don’t have to have fancy dishes. White works well and then spice things up with colorful napkins, table runners and place mats.
What is your best Hosting tip? Do things in advance like setting your tables and moving furniture. This will give you time to attend to the smallest of details which your guests will surely appreciate.
What is the entertaining rule you live by? Shop your home first and see what you have. Most times you already have what you need and can mix and match things from other holidays to create a beautiful look.
Favorite Holiday Tradition? I always make Christmas breakfast and then we eat lunch at my mom’s house after we open gifts. I love that we’ve done that for years.
What is the secret to trimming a perfect tree? Fluff the tree first. Once it is out of the box fluffing an artificial tree is the most important step to making it look more realistic. Also, if you have an artificial tree, stick some real branches in bare spaces. This makes your home smell really nice and gives the look of a real tree.
I hope you made it to the end. Thank you for stopping by. If you didn’t see part 1 of my Chritsmas tour, you can check it out here. Also, I did a collab with my friend Michelle and you can check that post out here. Please leave me a comment telling me one of your family traditions.
