Christmas at the Robertson's

I don't have a whole lot of Christmas Decorations.  We've never felt "at home" wherever we lived, and never put up much other than a tree.  We've either been flipping houses, or in an apartment between flipping houses.

NOT THIS YEAR!!

This is OUR house!  No intentions to sell it any time soon.  So we got in our car, headed to Hobby Lobby and got a few things. 

We're planning on taking advantage of the huge after Christmas discounts this year so that we can go all out next year.

I grew up with hodge podge Christmas trees, and while they may not be the most beautiful, they are the most meaningful - and that's what it's about right?



I adorned our faux wainscoting with some garland and red ribbon






Put some fake snow on our built in and put Christmas-yish things on the bottom shelf







I put together these little bud vases with berries from a shrub in our front yard.












I think they add a nice subtle pop of Christmas




Not a whole lot - but enough to get us in the spirit.

Stay tuned for some really exciting news - my first blog party and first AWESOME give away you won't want to miss!!  Details to come.

  1. Very pretty! Did you make those plaques in your niche, too? Love them. I did the panels you did {with the outdoor mat as a stencil}. Just waiting on my sofa slipcover so I can get everything together.
