After picking up our tree on Tuesday, we pulled out the bins of holiday decor from the basement and set about decorating the inside of our home for Christmas. I’m partial to natural decor inside just like I am outside. I usually stick to white lights, glass balls, pine cones, and a few strings of glass beads when it comes to trimming the tree. Here’s a peek at the holidays inside the cottage at Chiot’s Run.
I made some mixed pine garland from those pine boughs we got at the Christmas tree farm and put it over the sliding glass door in the dining room. I simply love these little mica tree silhouette lights I got a long time ago, they are handled gingerly and strung up around the house each year. I had so much fresh pine left that I even put it on the light fixtures.
Of course the best part is the way the lights warm the house at night. We put our tree lights on a dimmer so we can dim them if we want to. I always love looking at them all squinty eyed to make them blurry.
Last year we didn’t put any Christmas decorations up in the house except for some of my nativity sets. Mr Chiots was very sad and said this year he wanted it really festive. I think we’ve achieved that, he’s very happy.
How do you decorate the inside of your home during the holidays? Do you go all out, or do it simply? (if you’ve posted about it on your blog, add a link below, I’d love to see it)Filed under Holidays | Comments (13)
