We have only lived here about 8 months, but we’re loving settling in for our first Christmas at our home here in the desert of Phoenix. Today I’m sharing a look inside our house to give you a peek at how we decorated for Christmas this year. Come on in!
I love our simple felt wreath (found on Etsy last year).
I’m a big fan of tinsel trees, we have 5 of these on our front stoop.
Most of our decor is vintage (or vintage inspired) or handmade or both! This Christmas card holder was my grandmother’s.
We don’t have a mantel, so had to get a bit creative this year and made a “tree” out of twinkle lights, finger knitted garland and gold tinsel. The handmade banner was a gift last year.
I picked up this bottle brush vintage wreath at an antique market.
Our baby girl needs a pink tree, and I found this one for a dollar at Goodwill.
I have never been into the snow village thing before, but this year we inherited this big piece that is fiber optic and glowy. I fell in love with the miniature-ness, and can’t wait to add to the collection each year.
These bottle brush vintage trees are so fun (color blocking!), I have collected 4 so far — and they match the wreath!
This gold nativity is from Russia, and is made of clay.
It’s no secret my favorite Christmas decoration is my vintage tinsel tree. I love to put all our vintage, handmade and kid-made ornaments on it. I’m not a purist, the more mish-mashed the better! This year my boys made a pink finger-knit garland. We have a big color wheel that turns and lights it up at night.
