Friday Faves...Christmas home 2016

WELCOME!  Last week I showed you the Christmas decor in the entry of my home in this post.
Earlier this week I gave you a close up look at my Christmas tree in this post.
Today let's take a look around at some more of the Christmas decor in our home.
Let's start in the dining room!
I find myself enjoying a less is more Christmas decorating style than I did in the past.
On the dining room table I simply plopped a piece of fresh pine in one of the demijohns,
added my Christmas transfer ware dishes to the tray and topped them with a little Christmas vignette.
Also in the dining room...
a few simple Christmas touches on and near my knockoff Restoration Hardware shelves.

Dried orange slices are an easy DIY and a pretty and natural decoration to string as a garland,
 hang on your tree, or add to an ironstone bowl filled with pinecones as I did.
On top of the dish cabinet in my dining room are some of the pieces of Universal China's Woodvine pattern
 that I've collected.
Here's our little kitchen nook sitting area filled with holiday cheer!

And now the living room...

I made a slight change to the mantel since this photo, so I'll show you some more photos next week.
Our living room has a double arched entry.
This bronze deer hangs between the two arches.
I love these shelves that I found at Ross and hung near my hub's favorite chair.
 Thank you for joining me on this year's Christmas home tour!

Well, it's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a SAFE and BLESSED weekend!
