Christmas in the Family Room

Hi Friends!

I hope you're all having a joyous holiday season! Our family was all together on Thanksgiving and we'll all be together for Christmas. There's no sweeter blessing than that!

There are lots of changes around here since this summer, so I'll just be including them as I share each room decorated for Christmas.

Our family room is the room where we spend most of our leisure time. 

I recently found a new entertainment center/armoire on Craig's list. I was instantly in love with it but thought I was silly to get it - our old armoire was so nice. But when it was still there a few weeks later, I mentioned it to my husband, and we got it that same day - for $75!

It's much more my style than our old armoire.
I decked it out with bows of evergreen for the holiday.

I filled our sofa table, that my husband made, with glittery trees and deer.
Michigan gets a lot of snow during the winter, even though we haven't had much yet. I love to fill this room with fur and snuggle up on the couch on cold, blustery nights.
 This fur throw is from Pottery Barn.

 We've had this tree for several years now. I filled it with snow flakes and icycles.


I got these large fur pillows at HomeGoods.




I'll be back soon with more rooms, all decked out for Christmas. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

love and blessings~
