In the entry way I used a few items I already had on hand and the rest I picked up from the Target dollar spot!

I kept the kitchen simple and clean. With just a few cookie cutters and my mom’s old Better Homes and Garden cookbook, the counters are all decked out for Christmas.

I kept the powder room colors neutral. Just some nice greenery and gold ornaments completes the room.

I’ve got pops of red in the family room. I’ve always stuck with red at Christmas time. It just screams the holiday season to me. This year I’ve thrown in a little plaid. I love the color and texture it adds!

We put our tree in a regular stand but made a nice crate using pallet wood that we sanded and finished. It was super easy and the best part, free!

    So lovely! It’s all so classic and elegant – not overdone – just right. And I’m so smitten with that pillow with the car and the tree on your entry bench. Adorable! Thanks for participating in this year’s tour!

    I love how you incorporated your cookie cutter collection in a bowl with the bottle brush trees. I’ll have to remember that for next year. So simple, yet so fun and festive.

    I enjoyed touring your home!
