I had fun decorating for our first Christmas in our new home. It hasn't been without its challenges though. Come on in and take a look and join us for the holidays...
I think the hardest part about decorating a new home is figuring out where to put the decorations you've used for years that you love. In our old home, I knew where everything went and it became almost a tradition to put certain decorations in certain places. Some of the decorations that worked in the old house, just didn't look right in this one, others I just couldn't figure out where to put them.
|So many areas to decorate.|
|Christmas ornaments hung on the tree|
|Santa always oversees the baking of Christmas goodies|
|Christmas plates and Frosty|
|The stockings were hung by the fire with care.|
|Real or reproductions? Who cares, as long as you love it.|
My mom used to set up a huge Christmas village every year. I used to set up one too many years ago, but not on the scale of hers. Now, I love the simplicity of these two white Christmas village houses. I also have a white Christmas village church, that I display all year around. It's a tradition in my family to keep a Christmas decoration displayed all year in order to keep the Christmas spirit alive all year.

|Father Christmas Santa on the Hearth|
|The Christmas tree all decorated.|
|A smiling snowman for the back door.|
|Reindeer salt & pepper shakers found in the house when we were renovating.|
Well, that's pretty much the whole tour! It's hard to believe that 2016 is coming to an end. We haven't even been in our new home for a whole year yet. Last year at this time, we were installing flooring, and now we're celebrating our first Christmas here! Every day I count my blessings...a wonderful husband, a loving family, two beautiful fur-babies, a nice home, and so much more.
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
