Adams’ Christmas Reveal

I really didn’t think setting up a Christmas tree was in our cards this year, but somehow we did it! Between getting baby girl things organized, taking care of Paxton and throw in bed rest for a week… it seemed near impossible to think about decorating at all. A little help and a lot of breaks in between and our living room was dazzling in no time!

I’ve always been drawn to a traditional Christmas display rather then some of the more modern looks that seem to be surfacing. My absolute favourite thing to decorate with is Nutcrackers! Nick doesn’t understand my obsession, but for me it brings a little nostalgia to our Christmas. Since I’ve been slowly decorating our living room with more blue tones, I decided to incorporate blue in the tree as well. I love the traditional touches and the mix of fun pom poms, draped beading and gold accents… and you can’t forget the fake snow!

I love how whimsical it turned out with the uneven beads and draped ribbon. I was surprised how much I loved blue and gold together- usually you see blue and silver paired together, but the gold really warms up the blue and adds a beautiful contrast against the green branches.

Even the television console got a little touch of Christmas. Scattered pine cones gold and white decor and a baby book of The Story of Christmas.

I love the Hudson’s Bay Nutcracker that stands guard over the tree (haha) and all the little Nutcrackers that adorn this Christmas tree.

Little wintery touches throughout our living room pulls this look together and gives our room a cozy feeling. An empty tea can becomes the perfect place holder for some freshly cut evergreen.

Bing Crosby Christmas is filling the room with cheer and my cat is loving the fur shawl draped on the arm of the sofa- the perfect spot for a cuddly fur baby. I added a Christmas sign in all of our colours against a large picture frame. It’s a subtle touch to bring in all of the Christmas colours used throughout our living room.

I can’t wait to read Paxton the story of Jesus’ birth and for him to open up his first shiny package on Christmas Eve. What a wonderful year this is!
