Christmas Home Tour 2017 – Blue, Ivory, and Green Christmas
Welcome! Today I’m sharing all the decorations from our first Christmas at our Highland, Utah home. In our Christmas Home Tour 2017 – A Blue, Ivory, and Green Christmas, we share all the details below. We have a lot of blue in our decor so I used varying shades of blue, ivory, and green in my decor. All the sources I am able to link will be at the bottom of the post.
I filled a metal container with faux greens and flowers and added two wreaths to the front door.
We added a painted pine cone pick and blueberry picks to the wreaths, then added light blue ribbon tied in a bow. I hung the wreaths with silver command strip hooks. Once you attach the hooks, let them sit for about twenty minutes before you hang the wreath.
The Living Room Tree
We layered green cedar picks, faux blueberry picks, an white frosted hydrangeas and wired them together to go on the tree. Then we wired them into the tree in one piece.
We used a variety of blue, ivory, and green ornaments.
There were a few other ornaments in the tree of varying colors and for the ribbon we wired long pieces together and then wired them into the tree.
The Living Room Mantle
The secret to creating a mantle like this is to start with command strip hooks. We then hung the base garland and attached it to the command strip hooks. It works best if you put the lights on and fluff the garland first.
Once the base garland was secure we added in different pine and cedar picks and then blueberry picks.
Last, we hung the stockings underneath the garland and placed the sign next to the mirror. We can’t leave out the reason for the season so that’s why I placed this sign where we could see it.
Family Room Tree
For the family room tree I used teal blue, brown, and ivory ornaments and a 7.5 flocked tree.
The Family Room Mantle
For the family room mantle we used a base green garland attached with command strip hooks then added frosted pine and frosted eucalyptus picks. Next we added frosted white berry stems and frosted magnolia flowers stems.
Last, we added a few more stockings, a silver star, and more blue and ivory ribbon.
Kitchen and Dining Room Decor
We attached these frosted berry wreaths to the backs of the barstool chairs with the same blue ribbon I used in the family room mantle and living room tree.
I added some fresh flowers in a silver vases to brighten up the kitchen.
The side counter is perfect for my hot cocoa bar in the kitchen.
My Christmas Tablescape
We created this beautiful centerpiece garland and was able to use it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Once the holidays are over, I take out all the Christmas decor out of the garland and you can leave the table unset with just the garland or you can set a new table that is winter themed. Either way this garland is very versatile.
I set the table with my light blue everyday dinnerware and added silver and green accents.
Throw pillows on the end chairs tie in all the green colors throughout the house.
I hope you enjoyed seeing all the details of our Christmas decor from out first year in the Highland house.
Here’s a few more photos!
Since my real name is Holly Jolley, I always have to have a sign that say “Have a Holly Jolley Christmas”.
I shared a lot of photos here so I apologize but I didn’t want to leave out any details. I always say that the beauty lies in the details so I shared everything here!

Hi Holly! I’m new to your beautiful blog – I discovered you from a recent post on Pinterest. I love the blue and green Christmas decor – my home is navy and I love getting away from the red and green holiday decorations! Where did you find the cascading blueberry picks? They’re beautiful! Thanks so much!
Thanks so much Nancy! So glad you found me! I went with Red and Green last year for a magazine shoot but I am partial to the blues and greens too! I change it up each year though! This year I went in a totally different direction! I’ll be sharing that post later in the years since I didn’t have a chance to get that up on the blog yet! The blueberries are no longer available (heard that the store that supplies them went out of business during covid). I have some similar ones that I’ll be adding to my online shop soon. I’ll have them linked via my instagram @homewithhollyj too!

Do you have any idea what the name of the tile you used in your kitchen backsplash? And where you got it? It’s so lovely.
Thanks so much! It’s Calcutta gold marble tile. I believe they are 3 or 4″ x 10 or 12″ tiles. You should be able to get it from any stone/marble type store.
