A Sweet Christmas Home Tour
A Sweet Christmas Home Tour
I am so happy to once again be joining another group of bloggers on a Christmas Home Tour Blog Hop. A big thank you goes out to Haley of Stately Home Lane and Heather of Ever Evolving Home for asking me to join in with these talented decorators!
Of course my home would probably look a little more Christmasy with a nice dusting of snow, but we aren’t going to see that in central Florida, so welcome to my house! Sticking with my candy and gingerbread themed decor this year on the outside of the house, too, the railings were trimmed with retro candy cane ornaments and inexpensive garlands trimmed with candy cane striped deco mesh and candy striped ribbons. The entry is embellished with thick faux evergreen garlands accented with more deco mesh, Christmas ornaments and candy accents. The wreath on the door was made the same way.One of my own DIY Christmas Ornament topiaries stands by to welcome guests. Instead of evergreens, I nested it in a big pot of ornaments.
The table on the front porch where we enjoy meals or card playing is decorated with a bowl full of colorful and oversized Christmas ornaments. Once you come on inside you will notice my dining table set for an elegant holiday dinner. The settings are simple and the centerpiece is just my pair of Fitz and Floyd reindeer candleholders. I just love all of the detail of Fitz and Floyd pieces, the intricacies of the detailing. I would like to add more of their pieces to my collections. Alas, that means more storage space, doesn’t it? Past the dining room is our foyer of sorts. This blue box is where we keep our keys when we come in. I love these Pottery Barn lanterns and candles that come on automatically each evening. The only thing I did here was add a pair of red bows to the lanterns. My kitchen island is holding some of my gingerbread themed Christmas items, a cookie jar, a bowl of candy canes and my favorite new thing this year, these kitchen towels that say, “I just want to watch Christmas movies and Bake Stuff” . I could change this to “bake cookies” and that sums up a perfect holiday season for me! You can see the rest of my gingerbread display stop by my Gingerbread Christmas. My farmhouse table is set for a casual dinner with a little bit of a holiday twist. Wood slices are the perfect centerpiece with an assortment of trucks and cars with Christmas trees on top, like the Better Homes and Gardens salad plates.
I thought I would include on nighttime photo of my Christmas tree, it is my favorite time of day, to gaze at the lights and how they reflect in the ornaments and the mirror behind my tree. If you want to see more check out my Candy Themed Christmas Tree.
Thanks for stopping by to visit my holiday home! Please stop by all of these other beautiful blogs!

Do you get total strangers knocking on your door asking for an interior tour or asking if they can take their Christmas card picture in front of your home? I would! So cute. Happy Baking!
Thanks, Cindy, I haven’t had someone do that, but I had someone come to buy an old Christmas tree I was selling earlier this fall and she mentioned she would like to have her kids come sit on my fall decorated porch to take their picture…so I guess you almost called it!
