It's been a busy week here...I've completed a little more Christmas decorating - this time in the kitchen and dining room.
Nothing extravagant or over the top...subtle touches - quick and simple is the theme for me this year.
Taxidermy is a real trend lately, and its something that McG is excited about! Finally, I have agreed to let him have some antlers in the house! They usually reside outside in the garage!
These are young bull moose antlers. I added a small sign I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby and a star ornament from The Dollar Tree.
Next is the sideboard. I kept everything as I had it originally, just added a branch of red flowers I found on clearance at Target for $2.39 and some green, blue and silver ornaments, a silver tree and a Christmas candle from Bath and Body Works.
A simple garland with lights on the ledge between the kitchen and dining room. It is decorated with blue ornaments and green and red glitter birds.
On the island, I added a large vase with ornaments and a battery powered candle.
This year I am finding simple ornaments and subtle touches like branches and pinecones are all I need to get the holiday spirit in my home. I am really liking the simpleness of it - it looks lovely without being overdone.
Are you decorating more simply this year as I am - or are you enjoying lots of decorations? I'd love to hear from you!
Up later this week - our basement family room.
