Christmas Home Tour 2019 – A Green and Ivory Christmas
I’m sharing all the details of how I decorated my home for Christmas 2019. This year I went with a green and ivory Christmas color scheme. I reuse my decor from previous years throughout my home and rotate the ornaments and other decor items to change things up. This years decorations are some of my favorite and I really love how it all turned out.
I put up three Christmas trees this year and I always try to match or coordinate the tree decorations to the decor in the room.
For the the living room tree, I have a 12′ flocked long needle pine artificial tree. I used green, ivory, and white ornaments for this tree.
There are a mix of other ornaments, faux mistletoe stems, and ribbon throughout the tree.
For the family room tree I used a 7.5 foot flocked tree and set it into an antique french metal pot. The colors for this tree were blue, ivory, and brown with some greenery mixed into the tree and mantle.
I added a new 7.5 flocked tree to my bedroom this year and the colors in this tree also match the decor in my room.
I always decorate the mantles in my living and family rooms.
To create this look on the mantle, I start with a base layer of greenery and then add in layers of individual greenery branches. To secure the garland, I used command strip hooks.
I added the wreath candle holders to the side with green velvet ribbon and then added the gold beaded garland on top of the greenery.
For the family room mantle, I used wooden beads, greenery, and faux floral stems that matched the blue in the room.
The Front Porch
To dress up the front porch, I added some fresh greenery to my flower pots and some large sugar pinecones on top of the greenery. I added more of the big pine cones into the bottom of the garden obelisks. I then added two fresh wreaths to the obelisks and tied them on with a ribbon.
For the upper porch I added some lanterns and two more wreaths onto the doors.
Inside the front door I decorated the entryway table by adding a large ginger jar filled with winter greens and white frosted flowers. I also added some artwork to the table and my “holly jolly” christmas sign. (That is really my name!) I always have to have things that say “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!” This year I had a sign specially made with the correct spelling of my name.
I added some artificial cedar greenery to the staircase next to the entryway.
Our tiny sized bernadoodles, Coco and Copper always seem to make it into my photos!
The Kitchen and Dining Room
The kitchen is so much fun to decorate for the holidays. I like to add wreaths to the backs of my barstool chairs. Here I layered a frosted berry wreath on top of a slightly larger faux cedar wreath and wired them together. I then wired them onto my barstools.
I filled a white ginger jar with more faux branches and frosted white peony flowers and set it in the middle of the island.
I added some green and white festive dishes and other items to the open shelving in the kitchen.
I love the pops of green and silver throughout the kitchen. It’s a nice contrast against the white counter and cabinets.
I set up a hot coco bar in this little nook in the kitchen.
I set two different tablescapes this year in the dining room. The first is this green, silver, and white tablescape. Because I decorated before Thanksgiving, I made this tablescape work for both holidays. Here you can see how I added in silver turkeys and pumpkins for Thanksgiving. After Thanksgiving, I took out all the fall related decor and swapped it out for Christmas decor.
Here’s the Christmas variation of my tablescape. Much of it is the same but with a few changes it looks like a different tablescape!
The Master Bedroom
Lastly, here’s a few more photos of my master bedroom. I loved the addition of this new tree!
Along with the new christmas tree that matched the bedroom decor, I added a few wintery faux branches to a vase on a tray at the end of my bed.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my Christmas decor for 2019. I’ll link as many sources as I can below.
Merry Christmas 2019!
