Pretty in Pink Christmas - Kitchen

The kitchen this year is where I showcased a lot of my Christmas collections. From Nutcrackers to houses, it's all here.


I hung paper lanterns again above the island

Pretty in Pink Christmas - Bedrooms

Hello again!

Thank you so much for visiting my PRETTY IN PINK Christmas Home Tour

As promised, I will be sharing more of our Christmas decorations thru out the home today starting off with the BEDROOM.

Like I mentioned, I finished this room this November for the One Room Challenge, and since it's practically new, I just added a few touches of Christmas here and there.

Snowflake ornaments on the mantel and shelves...

Snow flake light on the window

I placed this PB pillow here 
I changed my bedding to grey and pink to go with my "pink Christmas"theme

Over at Sophia's room, no need for additional Pink since it already is!

She chose what type of tree she wanted

I love this decor I scored from the Target Wondershop last year
And finally my son's room...

I love the vintage wooden soldiers on the bedside tables

His favorite Santa, Jack Skellington

And of course, his Charlie Brown Christmas tree
I still have one more Christmas post to share with you, the kitchen particularly, so I hope you come back. I want to share with you too a NIGHT TIME TOUR of our home.  I think at night, the home just looks somewhat more magical!

Have a Great week!

Pretty in Pink Christmas Home Tour - Living and Dining Room

Hello Friends and WELCOME!!!

"Come on in!"
I'm finally ready to open up our home once again to people in the blogosphere for this wonderful Christmas tradition of Home tours! As you can see, I am joining two fabulous home tours, which by now, are both close to finishing so I bet, YOU ARE INSPIRED to the nines like I am!

If you are coming from Home by Heidi or Setting for Four, you are already blown away by their beautiful homes, I hope I do not fall short! ;-) But before we get into business, I need to thank a few special people in making this possible...

Thank you so much Marty @A Stroll thru Life
for letting me join once again this amazing group!

Thank you to Jenny of Evolution of Style,  Amy & Christy of 11 Magnolia Lane
who once again gave me the honor of joining their fabulous home tour!

Special thanks to our 12 DAYS OF HOLIDAY HOMES sponsor 2 years in a row,
LYNCH CREEK FARMS! Appreciate your support so much in our meager endeavors and truly
love all your products!!!! Kudos to your great company!
Ok, so as my daughter said, "Come on in!" 

Welcome to our Living room!

We used our new tree this year, actually we bought it 2 years ago, but I ended up using our old tree for last year. I love how narrower this new tree is, same 7.5' height like all my other trees are, but since the space is so limited, I think this narrower tree fits the space perfectly!

I made most of the major ornaments on the tree, I started with basic white glass balls and painted away using different shades of acrylic pinks! I also copied this tutorial from Alice & Lois for my DIY marbled ones! Such fun projects!

You can check them out on my IG HERE

Peonies for Christmas? Why not! ;-)

I tied pink ribbons on my plain pink pillows inspired by Driven by Decor

Simple coffeetable vignette

Over by the stairs, it's the first time that I've hung fresh Cedar garland I ordered from Lynch Creek Farms on the banister and I love it!

Mix of old and new trees here

I also think that my original watercolor abstracts from Gina Julian are perfect for my Pink Christmas!

Placed Christmas cards we get here too!

Now, let's go to the Dining Room!

Pink and Red All over!

Showcased my Vintage Ceramic Pink Tree on the table this year!

I got these Kate Spade plates from TJ Maxx, the gold flatware is a score from Jennifer at Dimples & Tangles

I think I'm starting a Gingerbread house collection, I scored this big one from AT HOME. Actually I missed out on the really big one I wanted. I saw it, didn't get it and when I went back, it was gone! ;-( Lesson learned, when you love something, just get it, especially around Christmas tim,  returns are easy anyway.

Our elf, Buddy, is trying to eat it!

I will also share some snippets from the Kitchen and bedrooms here, but since the post is getting too long, I will do a separate one for these rooms later on.

Our Master Bedroom - I finished this for the ONE ROOM CHALLENGE this November, and
if you want to check it out, do so HERE

My DIY Christmas Prints for our Breakfast area

My Daughter's Peppa Pig Tree

My Mini Chanel Tree inside our closet (giving my husband clues is getting harder and harder)! ;-)

Charlie Brown Christmas Tree in my son's room (check out how long ago I've set up this room)

I hope you enjoyed this very "girlie" Christmas we have going on here. I'm so glad my husband and my boys are not complaining about all the PINKS in the house! LOL! 

Please check out the other fabulous homes of Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality  and Home by Heidi if you haven't done so yet! I also added all the links of the homes you may have missed below!

Have a Wonderful Holiday Season!
