Traditional Christmas Decor Home Tour #CBHomeTour
When it comes to Christmas decor I am all about tradition. Our tree looks almost identical year after year, and each year I love taking the time to hang each and every ornament, all of which have a story. I know where (or from whom) every single one came from. With 13 married Christmases, our tree of memories gets more full each year and I love it.
Welcome to our Christmas home tour, part of the #CBHomeTour hosted by the amazing Christina over at The DIY Mommy. Be sure to check out all the links to the beautiful Christmas homes other talented Canadian bloggers have invited us into at the bottom:)

Welcome to our Christmas home tour!
A lot of our Christmas decor is red, but in our hot pink living room I stick to cream, gold, and of course the nice green of fresh cedar.
On the mantle is some fresh cedar, some nutcrackers I sprayed gold a few years ago, some simple Ikea frames with NOEL printed out, and a tree that was one of my last Tar-jay Canada purchases…boohoo.
When it’s all lit up at night it looks so pretty, and next to impossible to get a good photo of – my apologies.
You’ll see lots of fresh cedar around the house. I love the scent and how it brings the outside in. From vases with pine cones and cedar, to cedar garland around the chandelier, to a beautiful arrangement of cedar, cotton branches, and gold branches all lit up in the bathroom, cedar is definitely my favourite go-to for traditional Christmas decor.
The main floor powder room got a little Christmas cedar with a burst of green ribbon to match the fun surprise behind the door.
The reindeer is the newest addition to the Christmas decor stash. I picked it up thrifting this summer and gave it a fresh coat of black spray paint, perfect for the newly glammed up powder room.
Night is also my favourite for the Christmas tree. Including the view from the back porch when you’re entering the house.
In the kitchen / dining room is our beautiful tree. Always fresh and always lit. I have this weird thing that only a lit tree is fulfilling it’s “Christmas destiny”. We all have our issues….
I even rearrange the Fiestaware bar stools so the green and red are next to each other.
The cedar on the chandelier looks especially nice at night too. Can you tell I’m partial to Christmas decor at night? (Who isn’t really?!)
Santa and his snowman hold down the fort on the buffet, leaving lots of room for dishes and food when entertaining. And hanging on the mirrors above is a DIY wreath I made what seems like a million years ago when DH and I lived in a tiny 425 square foot apartment when we first got married.
There’s even a little fresh cedar on the bar cart.
And in the kitchen, the chalkboard got a little reindeer cheer.
The only Christmas that manages to make it’s way upstairs is this little snowman who hugs the blanket in the basket in the guest room🙂
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas! Thank you so much for visiting and be sure to come back every day this week to check out all the beauty across Canada by clicking the links below.
