Our Christmas Decor

I love decorating for Christmas - but Dan never helps.  He sits and watches me, though.  I put on my favorite Christmas records and make hot chocolate!  

Most of our Christmas decor has been compiled slowly over the years.  Some of my favorite Christmas things are from our year in France.  I bought some things to decorate our apartment while we lived there - which turned out to be great souvenirs and memorabilia for us each Christmas season as we remember that exciting and lonely Christmas the in French Alps.   

This Joyeux Noël of the nativity was a FREE postcard we found in France.  I love it.

I always hang ornaments in the windows.

We found BB a stocking that matches ours... kind-of!  Our mantle also displays our nativity set, candelabra and antlers!

This year, with a 15-month-old, we had to change-up our decor.  But not much.  I just put our cheapest, most indestructable ornaments on the tree.  We opted for a fake tree rather a real because I didnt want BB eating pine needles or playing in the water bowl.

I couldn't figure out where to put our Christmas cards this year.  So, our first few are clipped on our "EAT DRINK BE MERRY" garland.  You can see my sparkly clothes pins from last year HERE!

 I also put ornaments everywhere I can.  Some of my favorite cheap ornaments are these golden apples.  They represent Washington state and they are virtually unbreakable so they're on the new baby-proof tree this season!  The photo of Dan and I with the golden apple is from when we had a band together.  A band that never recorded or performed anything but took some really cool band photos together!  We're dorks.

Linking up with Mandy at Harper's Happenings.  Merry Christmas!


  1. Very pretty! I love the mantel

  2. I LOVE how you hanged your Christmas cards! I might just have to kidnap that idea.

  3. Thanks for the tour! We hang our cards up in lines across our wall with jute and baby clothespins. :) Your fireplace looks so cozy and BB's stocking definitely matches - or at least complements yours and Dan's! Love it!

  4. I loved that BAND. I think it needs to go on a reunion tour, maybe next summer?
