I absolutely love decorating for Christmas – there’s nothing as cozy as a Christmas tree full of lights twinkling in the corner. Every year I love pulling out my Christmas decor and being flooded with memories from past Christmases. I almost never buy anything new but I love to challenge myself to find new ways to use my same old favorites.
And since Christmas decorating is my favorite, I asked some of my favorite creative bloggers to join me in sharing their Christmas decorating. I love that everyone has their own style and their own take on Christmas decor. You can see all the fun Christmas decorating styles at the bottom of this post.

Now I can’t wait to invite you in to celebrate a bit of Christmas with me! Welcome to my home!
My favorite space to decorate for absolutely any season is our entry. (Seriously, everything looks awesome with that wood wall!)
I recently switched around some furniture and brought this cute metal table back to the entry. I love the curves of the table against the straight lines of the wall. This year I picked up some inexpensive mini Christmas trees and added my favorite flocking to them to use throughout the house. I also added a thrifted vintage mirror and our peg doll nativity.
I adore this nativity – it is super cute and simple and totally kid-friendly. I bought my peg doll people on Etsy a couple of years ago and I’m hoping to add some more people and animals this year. (They also have a peg doll nativity at Target this year that is a total steal.)
The cute little Merry Christmas banner was a quick DIY project. I cut the pennants from an old hymnal but I have free printable Christmas music here if you don’t have your own stash of old hymnals. Then I glued on glittered chipboard letters.
The lower part of the table holds a Happy Birthday Jesus sign I made last year and a few wrapped gifts. (These are actually my son’s birthday gifts; I still haven’t gotten any Christmas shopping done! But hey, at least I’ve decorated…)
I also added a few touches of Christmas in our living room.
I made this cute Thankful sign for fall, but since thankfulness isn’t actually limited to one season, I wanted to keep it around for Christmas. I switched out the photos for some of my favorite photos of my boys from past Christmases.
I added a few of my favorites from my vintage camera collection below the sign. And look closely at the photo above – do you see the little letterpress letters that spell smile?
I put a few more small flocked trees in our bay window along with a cute lantern. I always struggle with what to put in that window that will look good from the outside as well as the inside. This seemed like the perfect solution. Plus they are so pretty all lit up at night.
And did you see? I finally got a new couch! Yep, after searching for the perfect affordable sofa for well over a year, I finally chose this cute gray Chesterfield from World Market. I picked it up during one of their fabulous furniture sales and so far we are loving it!
In the dining room, I added a super simple centerpiece to the table.
I love to see a gorgeous table all set with beautiful dishes, but that just doesn’t work in our house. My boys would destroy it in minutes. So instead I just went with a cute centerpiece. Another flocked tree, a tray, a pair of vintage candlesticks, and a huge pile of shatterproof ornaments.
And my DIY advent calendar also found a new home this year.
I am loving the vintage stool and frame against the modern white table. And of course, we can’t decorate for Christmas around here without a few nutcrackers making an appearance.
My husband’s grandmother gave him a nutcracker every year for Christmas and I have carried on the tradition until now we have a huge collection. These three are a few of my favorites so they get a place of honor beside the advent calendar.
Tomorrow I’ll be back sharing how I pulled together a beautiful Christmas mantel despite the big TV hanging over the fireplace. And of course I’ll be sharing more about our Christmas tree soon too.
But for now, check out how these stylish ladies decorate for Christmas!
