Welcome To My White & Red Christmas Home

Welcome to a mini-tour of my home decked with white and red for the holidays.

My porch has a little green wagon of red poinsettias.







My front door is adorned with a white and red wreath.








The wooden hook in the  entry has a bright and cheerful green, red, and gold Christmas hanging next to my House Blessing.









I added my DIY deer art beside them.








The little ceramic tree’s lights are bright and cheerful.








My living room white futon is decked with my new DIY Christmas pillows from placemats. I found the placemats last summer on sale at the thrift store  (75% off all Christmas items) for $1.50.  Red cotton corduroy embroidered with white thread snowflakes.







I knew the moment I saw the four placemats that they would perfect as pillows on my white futon. It really was the inspiration for my house’s Christmas look. I sewed two together and inserted a pillow form.













My planters have been updated with red for the holidays including the faux planter in the corner of the living room.









My live green planter updated with red Christmas flowers and picks.







My little recycled tree is on a table between dining and living areas.










My Advent wreathless centerpiece is on the dining table until Christmas Day.  I light a candle each of the four Sundays preceding Christmas. The candle on the reindeer is for Christmas Day.









I made a cranberry and bay leaf garland which I hung on Contact hooks behind the dining table. It’s easy to make and has a great look.  You just need a large eyed needle, a thick string thread, fresh bay leaves and cranberries.  After I dried orange slices, I added a couple of dried orange slices on the hooks and 2 red candles. I like using natural elements in decorating.









Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoyed the mini-home tour.

    1. I disagree –your beautiful birding skills always take me to a wonderful place with your photos and words. We can celebrate God in many ways my friend.

  1. I LOVE your white and red Christmas decorations! I need you to come help me decorate at my house! 🙂 That was so clever of you to make a pillow out of placemats.

    1. You can use napkins, placemats, even pretty little towels. You don’t have to cut or bind. Just sew edges together 3 sides – stuff or insert form and close 4 side. Merry Chrsitmas.

  2. Everything looks lovely.

    I’ve been seeing the idea about turning placemats into pillows and love the idea. I need to keep my eye out for the perfect placemats.

  3. What a beautiful and festive space! Thank you for give us this Merry Christmas tour of your home 🙂

  4. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you Carol. There is nothing more festive than a red and white decor for Christmas.

  5. It all looks nice!! I remember those old ceramic trees from when I was a child. I have a newer one that I bought at Cracker Barrel. Thanks so much for linking up at #AThemedLinkup 6 for All Things Christmas. Shared.
