Holiday Home Tour 2014 & Giveaway!

December 15, 2014 | by Jocie (email) |

By now, every blogger in the blogosphere has already shared their holiday home tour, some before Thanksgiving. But I was committed to not decorating until after our Thanksgiving company left. Or maybe I’m just a procrastinator. Either way, it worked out, because I’ve joined up with 15 other fabulous (and procrastinating) bloggers to give you our Holiday Home Tour 2014. And if you haven’t decorated yet, then here is the inspiration you might be needing! Be sure to read to the end too, for a fabulous giveaway!


Most of my decorations are from last year, but even Ethan thought most were new, since everything looks so different in our new house. It was fun re-arranging and finding new places for all the decor.

My favorite spot in the house is my fireplace, with the beautiful white brick. It is also home to my Christmas Pallet, Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees, DIY Christmas Bunting, Reindeer Art.



I decided to put the stocking on our railing this year instead of the mantel, and so far, I’m loving it!


And if you follow us on FB and Instagram (@jocieopc), you know that we got a new LED tree this year and its is awesome!!  Plus the girls love that it can change from white to colored lights.


In our entry way, I did some fun Christmas art on my Ikea Hack Chalkboard, and put our Felt Advent Calendar underneath.



In the hallway from the entry way, back to the kitchen, I placed our Felt Christmas tree. The girls LOVE this since they aren’t allowed to play with the real ornaments! haha


Also, in the world of kids decor, Izzie and Lucy had a blast decorating my new Say Anything Thought Bubble Chalkboard Vinyl from Wallterntives on our fridge, along with our Dollar Store Magnetic Nativity.

We read the Christmas Story every night, along with doing a small Advent Activity from our calendar. And the girls love to act it out as we read with their small, plastic figurines. 🙂



Here is the view from my living room, into the entry way and family room, at night. It is currently home to our old Christmas tree, which will be finding a new home at the end of this year. 🙂

In our living room, I have my mini Christmas tree that I kept in my room as a little girl, along with a few of my favorite pix. I love it all against my Wallternatives Fall Phrases Decal Set (I know Fall is over, but I love it so much, I couldn’t take it down!). And of course, I’m diffusing some Christmas Spirit Young Living Essential Oil Blend – it smells just like Christmas!


And just, one final shot of my favorite Spoon Tree and sweet girls!

    I really like your color scheme. By focusing on red & white and then the neutrals you already have in your home, it’s beautifully decorated but looks so elegant. Just gorgeous!

    Absolutely love all of the chalkboards and the stocking hung on the stairway! I totally love the Christmas tree advent calendar for the kids and the Nativity scene. I think that is so important. <3

  22. Sherry Martindale says:

    Honestly, if all you did was your banister it would be gorgeous! !! I adore what you did there!! I love red and gold for Christmas, so I love your use of color throughout 🙂 I also love your clever idea of hanging the stocking on the sofa table. it looks fantastic, and as someone who doesn’t have a mantle this is a great alternative! ! Beautiful job, and I also love your use of live plants, and bringing the outdoors in. Thank you so much for the giveaway 🙂
