Decorating for Christmas is no joke and it’s taken me seven trips to Target, five stops at thrift stores, four Dollar Tree runs, two times fighting the crowds at Joann Fabrics, two lunch breaks spent at Hobby Lobby, one Black Friday sale at Walmart, one quick stop at Michaels and one run through Home Goods to get to where we are today… and I STILL feel like there is more that I could be doing.

I started decorating mid-November after having completed all the fall and Thanksgiving posts for the blog and the first thing Brett says to me is, “You’re taking down the fall decorations? But I really liked those. Let’s just keep them up all year.”

Well, thank you dearest for the compliment, but unfortunately the home decor Gods have not blessed me with the powers to just let a holiday slip by without decorating.

So down came the pheasant feathers, everything orange and yellow and all things hay-related.

As I’ve mentioned before, this is our first year in the house and my decorating stash is starting from scratch.

I may have went a tad overboard with the shopping, so I am splitting this tour into two parts. Today I’ll share the entryway and next up will be the living room and bedroom.

I’ve included sources (and some links if still available) to as much as I can remember (sometimes everything starts to blur together after awhile) and hopefully this will provide you with a little inspiration for your holiday home.

    I am crazy about your floors!! Also : “Well, thank you dearest for the compliment, but unfortunately the home decor Gods have not blessed me with the powers to just let a holiday slip by without decorating.” That was hilarious. I actually laughed out loud πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Lora! I am so happy we went with brick! And I’m glad I could give you a nice laugh πŸ™‚

    So lovely! I love how simple yet sweet all your decor is. I don’t have a house (yet!) but I am getting married next year and we’d love to do more decorating when we have a home together. These are such wonderful ideas for when you’re starting from scratch! Thank you for sharing! πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Allison! You’re going to just love having your own home and styling it to your needs. This is our first and I am having so much fun!
