I'll Show You My is here again! The monthly collaboration I do with my good friends Christina and Tracy. And just like the last few months Danielle and Dara are joining us as well!
If you follow me on Instagram @MrsWatkins214 then you've seen a few sneak peaks of our Christmas Decorations! Since I've had them up since before Thanksgiving.. I love Love LOVE Christmas! So I'm so super excited to show you the full tour!
This year I kept it classic and simple. I didn't put out all my decorations, just my favorites.. and I added a few new pieces as well. I went with a traditional red and green color scheme, I know the new style is white and silver/ gold. But I love the "real" Christmas colors.. And to tie in with my country style home, I tried to use as many rustic items as I could!
I couldn't help but include a picture of my favorite ornament! See how many red trucks you can count in my holiday decor!
Let me start with the Christmas trees, we have 3 trees this year. The main tree in the living room, the kids tree up in the nook and the mini tree also in the living room near our stockings.
Chris and I have been collecting Nutcrackers.. We thought it would be fun to get a new one each year to add to the collection. And one day, when our children bring their children over for the holidays we'll have many Nutcrackers to show them. Such a sweet tradition to start if I do say so myself!
My table is simple but festive! Placemats and a few candles are all it needs.
The hutch has one of my absolute favorite decorations.. My train! I got it from Party Lite about 5 years ago. It's too cute!
The kitchen only has a few things.. I like to keep my counters clear for cooking.
The cast iron pans where my Grandfathers so I always have them hanging!
I wanted the nook to be fun for the kiddos, since it is their space after all. Just some cutsie, silly things up there for them!
This is a children's Nativity.. they can take it down and play with it whenever they like. We are Christian so we celebrate the TRUE meaning of CHRISTmas as well as incorporating Santa clause into the day.
The main bathroom I went with a snowman/ snowflake decor.. it's blue and white, not red and green. Just to mix it up a bit!
And last but not least, our front porch (before it snowed)!
I hope you enjoyed this months I'll Show You My! If you're interested in collaborating with us, please let me or one of the other ladies know! The more the merrier!
