Christmas Snow Decor

christmas in the kitchen
Initially, I planned on using a more nature inspired theme though out the house, like I did in the sunroom.  To see that room, click here.  But after unpacking the Christmas décor, I found an entire set of new ornaments that I had purchased last year after Christmas.  The box was big enough to decorate a 7 feet three plus I had purchased some individual boxes to match as well.

After seeing them, I did remember that I wanted to add a little more blue to the decorations since my curtains and accents are blue in the living room.  The set has polar bears and snowflakes, so I decided to use this theme in the living room, foyer and kitchen.

My old one was huge and took us so much space and it took almost all day to get it up!  This one is a 7 1/2 slim tree that is prelit and is easy set up!  Wow, I can’t believe how much timed I saved!  It was so easy!  I plan on trying to get another 1/2 price after Christmas.

To go with the snow theme, I purchased some glitter felt from Hobby Lobby and several packs of felt snowflakes from the dollar tree.  It was so easy to make!  I cut out a large circle, cut one slit to the center and hot glued the snowflakes to the edges!  You can’t get any easier that that!

The theme is continued on the mantel.  The old stocking holders didn’t match and I found the snowflake holders that the dollar tree.  Faux snow was used as a filler in the glass cylinders and well as being sprinkled over the garland.

I also used the spray snow in the can.  It was so much cheaper than buying a lot of floral sprays.
christmas above the kitchen cabinets
Instead of running garland down the top of the cabinets in the kitchen, I randomly inserted faux branches.  I mixed in live cedar and magnolia leaves and spray them with the faux snow.  The branches were actually from the bottom of the Christmas tree that I used in the sunroom.  Since I put that tree in a galvanized tub, I didn’t use the last row of branches.  To see the sunroom, click here.

  1. Tammy,
    Your tree is gorgeous. Have a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy.

  2. Aren't the new trees just so much better now??!?!?! Such time savers! We still have our old tree in the basement, but we haven't put it up in 4 or 5 years now. I like all my new slimmer ones that are put together in just 3 easy steps! And no more stringing lights through those big ol' monsters!!! Hooray!!!

    I really like what you did with the tree skirt!!! What a neat embellishment!!! To buy one already done like that would've cost a fortune!

    Great idea to use the branches from the bottom of another Christmas tree to decorate in the kitchen!!! Maybe that's what I should do with our old dinosaur in the basement! :-) I also really like your mantel!!!

    This is great, Tammy! Your home is looking top notch for the Christmas season! Have a happy Christmas!!! Oh....I tried clicking on the links to see the sunroom (I had already seen it, but wanted to see again), and there was no link. Take care!

  3. I love the dusting of snow all over your home Tammy! And your tree skirt is wonderful! You make it sound so easy! I pinned it for next year, I just love it! Thanks and Merry Merry!

  4. Your home looks gorgeous all ready for Christmas! Love your tree skirt! Merry Christmas!

  5. Everything looks amazing! Merry Christmas!!

  6. How pretty, Tammy! Everything is so beautiful and festive! We just got home and rushed to get our decor up tonight. I snapped a quick pic of the mantel and got a post up in record! Hope you can stop by! Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family! God bless!

  7. Awesome job Tammy! Everything looks great! Merry Christmas to you and your family.


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments! I try to return the favor and visit each one of you! ~Blessings, Tammy~
