A Merry Tour

The Christmas home tour continues...

Our front door is adorned with a pretty green wreath. (this is a dark area in the house so the camera doesn't capture the color right).
I picked a wreath this color so that it could stay up longer than the Christmas season. I added a little bird ornament and a gold bow.
On a hallway wall, I hung up this cute photo holder that my mom got at Pier 1. For the Christmas season, I plan on hanging the xmas cards we get in the mail.
For now, I hung up vintage xmas postcards found at an antique mall.

These birch candles are perfect for my woodland theme. You can't see it, but the tray is also wood-grained. I added bunches of garland and pinecones from Hobby Lobby.
I pulled out my red blanket from Crate & Barrel.
It has beautiful shades of red and pink with a gold threading.
This is my dining room.
This is my favorite Christmas item. It's a tablerunner from Crate & Barrel.
The vase holds a candle and some mini ornaments. The placecard is from a wedding we went to last December. It was 1 month after Ryan and I got married and I loved seeing Mr. & Mrs. Lee. I just thought it was cute and kept it :)
Here is my sideboard with lights and garland.
Some metallic candles found at Target last year.
A sugar bowl and creamer.

Our stockings: one for me, my husband and our 2 kitties :)
A tray filled with some accents. These are some mini lantern ornaments found at Hobby Lobby. (yes I still have the tags on...whoops)
These are vintage carole books found at the antique mall.
A vase filled with ornaments and berry accents.

And here's the tree.
