Traditional Christmas Home Tour 2018

The-Honeycomb-Home-Christmas-Home-Tour-2018, decorating with traditional Christmas Colors

You guys, I finally got some Christmas decorations up in my house. I’m calling it the Traditional Christmas Home tour this year because I stuck with a mostly red and green color scheme.

This is the third year in a row I’ve gotten my wreath from Lynch Creek Farm. I ordered this back in November to be delivered when I returned home from vacation. I absolutely love this simple cedar wreath with the bow, and I based the rest of my decorations around it.

But let’s back up for a minute and start in my tiny foyer.



My front door opens up right into my living room, so I made this small space next to the door my entry space.



Usually, I keep a bowl for keys on this table and I have coat hooks hanging behind the door to maximize this little area.



Earlier this year we added board and batten in the living room. Adding it above the fireplace made such a difference in here that I wanted to highlight that area by hanging my wreath in this spot. This is the Three Cedars Wreath from Lynch Creek Farm as well as their Cedar Garland on the mantel. I picked these exact same things last year, I definitely know what  I like! It’s so convenient having these delivered to my door rather than running around in the freezing cold hoping to find exactly what I want.

I mentioned last week how much I love these little farmhouses with the red roofs* (they’re on sale now), they go perfectly with the wreath. The two little white houses I found last year at Target, but I didn’t see them this year.



For the last two years, I’ve only had one small lamp in this room which wasn’t really conducive to reading. I’ve been searching all this time for the perfect floor lamp, and finally found this one from Ashley Home Store.

I maximize every bit of my garland by adding a few pieces into vignettes around the house, including in this mason jar with a few fake berry stems.



The Three Cedars garland is 18 feet long. It’s enough to decorate my two mantels and have plenty leftover for several vignettes. I put some of it into this little mason jar with faux berries. I found those mason jar handles online recently and attached them to all my jars, it gives them that little something extra.


My wicker tray filled with bells and beads makes an appearance every year. Again I used some greens from the garland here, it really goes a long way. I don’t drape it to the floor on my fireplaces because my pets would eat it. I also prefer the look of it this way.
