Christmas Tour of my House 2012!

Merry Christmas sweet faithful readers!!!

Are you ready for Christmas?  I am almost finished gift wrapping – just have the gifts for my 2 girls left….and I can’t wrap until they are in bed!! Gift with a bow

But at least I have finished all my Christmas decorating….and I would love to give show you how I decorated my house this year.  So welcome to my Christmas Tour 2012!!!

Let’s start with the first room you see when you enter through the front doors and turn to the right — the Conversation Room AKA the living Room:

This year I decided to go with a glamorous gold tree versus the white one I have put up for the last 3 years. I am very happy with how it turned out. It goes perfectly with the blue and gold theme in the conversation room and of course, it is ultra glamorous!!

Here are some of the new decorations I bought for the new gold tree.  One of my favourite things to do each season is find new decorations that reflects my mood.

The theme remains the same: birds, owls and fabulous shoes.  However, the first one is an adorable lucite motorcycle – for my hubby and the 2nd one is a tiny Eiffel Tower.  A trip to Paris, France has been promised to me in the near future. Airplane

There is an electric fireplace in the conversation room and each year I love to decorate it in shimmery silver and whites.

Although I love all the glitz and glamour, there was something missing between those 2 windows.  So I decided to do a quick DIY project and make some glamorous feather wreaths.

Ok, let’s turn slightly right and head into the  dining room where I continue to use purple accents.

This year I decided to intermingle large pinecones with different sized purple ornaments in various textures as the centrepiece on my dining room table.  I call it rustic glam! And the dining room wouldn’t be complete without my beautiful lucite reindeer.  To this day, I still get asked where I bought them.

Now lets head to the back of the house into the family room where we showcase the real tree that we cut down at the tree farm each year.  Here is where we have fun with our decorations and the girls actively decorate.  Our home has 10 feet ceilings on the main level and normally our tree is that high….however this year we were a bit late getting to the tree farm so its just under 9’ft this year. And it made a huge difference in how many decorations we could get on our tree.

This is the instagram photo I took of our tree. (On a side note, if you are on instagram, than please follow me here and I will follow you back!)

If you noticed from my gold tree and this one, I do not like tree toppers.  I much prefer to continue the decorations all the way to the top.

When we were at Disney World last March Break, we purchased some fun decorations.

This one is Mya’s Minnie Mouse ears!
