It’s December and you know what that means… it’s time for the Christmas 2020 home tour! Obviously this has been a hard year for everyone, not a single person has been exempt from the stress of 2020, which is why it’s so important to cherish and celebrate what we do have. We all find comfort in different ways, I find mine in creating a well dressed home, and this year my home has been more comforting than I could ever imagine.
Every year I find so much joy in decorating our home for Christmas. I very much enjoy surprising my family by adding new decorations and switching things around, so our Christmas home is a little bit different every year. I think it adds a bit of spontaneous fun.
During this month we we snuggle by the fire watching Christmas movies, baking cookies and treats while listening to Christmas music. We will laugh, we will cry for our loved ones no longer with us, we will open presents, and we will give thanks to our Savior who is born. It all happens here inside our home and I love sharing it with you.
Last Christmas this room was an huge, unfinished mess. It gives me so much joy that the media room is finished and gets to join our 2020 Christmas tour. You can read about our media room before and after HERE. Our next winter project is to remodel the loft space, so look forward to that joining the 2021 tour.
Brian and I joke that we have the hardest living room to photograph ever, but it’s honestly true! It’s a bright room full of backlit windows and sun glares, we usually wake up at 6 am just to get a few photos before the light gets crazy. Those big windows and gorgeous views come with a price. This year we upgraded to a 10 foot tree and we really love it.
Every Christmas home needs festive garland and this ornament garland was incredibly simple and fun to make. You can find the tutorial HERE.
We’re making spirits bright in our house!
Our kitchen makeover was finished just in time for the holiday season. You can read about our mini kitchen makeover click HERE.
I recently created this Christmas present centerpiece made out of wrapped up boxed food. It’s the perfect low waste decoration, and after Christmas unwrap the food and keep it, or even better donate it. You can view the tutorial HERE.
Can you guess what one of my favorite Christmas movies might be? Hmm.
Merry Christmas blog friends and family! Thank you for visiting my 2020 Christmas home tour. I wish you nothing but peace and happiness this month.
