I am so excited to be sharing part one of my holiday home with you guys today! I had to break it into two parts because there are so many pictures I want to share with y'all! I'm mainly sharing the dining room area today, and next week I will share my living room! I absolutely love decorating for the holidays, and I always keep it pretty neutral. Also, as you can see, I kept my decor pretty simple this year. I mentioned more about that here and here.
I love the classic, timeless look of fresh greenery, white lights, and candles. I put fresh greenery literally all around the house - it brings it to life for the holidays and smells soooo good!! I also love adding wreaths in the windows - real of course! I don't do any fake greenery! Chris is actually the one who brought this tradition into our home. He will not accept fake greenery.. and now I'm in total agreement with him! You just can't beat the fresh stuff.
I added the cutest little Christmas cottages to our buffet table this year. I saw these on Etsy back in October and fell in love with them. I hope to keep collecting them over the years and adding to my collection. I love that they are handmade and that you can add a village light inside them or light them with a string of lights like I did. I added bottle brushed trees and a little fake snow to complete the look!
