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.
It looks like little snowdrifts!
I also used the spray snow in the can. It was so much cheaper than buying a lot of floral sprays.
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.

Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
