Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour 2016 {part 1}

It really is the most wonderful time of the year!  Today, along with 12 other bloggers we welcome you to our Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour.  If you are coming over from Life and Style at 60, I'm glad you've stopped by!

Come on in!  For our front door I opted to use a traditional red bow on the wreath.  



For the mantle I used natural elements, the greens along with the magnolia branches rest along the mantle with a faux  piece of greenery.  The hurricanes make appearances all over the house, but this year they are home on the mantle.

Family Room

The Christmas tree in the family room is home to the ornaments that hold a special place in our hearts.  The Angel on top has graced our trees for 26 years.

Living Room

 The living room Christmas tree is the more formal of the trees in our home.  These ornaments have been collected over many years, though some are new and gifts just this year.  Thanks Pie!

As part of our participation in Merry & Bright this year we were gifted wrapping paper of our choice by Paper Mart.  As I visited their website, carefully selecting papers that would coordinate with my tree decor I couldn't help but notice that they have papers for every style of decor.  There was even a toile and ya'll know I had to get it!  The red and gold curly ribbons are also from Paper Mart and compliment the papers I selected. When I select wrapping paper I always prefer a more heavy weigh,  the weigh of these papers were perfect!  The easiest to wrap with was the  green berry foil!

Cody had to get in this photo, he is the baby at 13 years.  He has had a rough year as he now suffers from thyroid problems.  He lost about 5 pounds late last year and hasn't been able to put them back on.  He really does resemble the saying "I'm not fat I'm just fluffy!"


Dining Room

That photo is a bit of a teaser.  Next week when we are sharing our dining tables you will see much more of the dining room.

Be sure to visit Marsha at M. Jones Style, her style is amazing and she does such a nice job decorating  and styling her home.  Don't even get me started on how delish all of her recipes look!
