It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Hey all! Are we so excited that it's Friday?? (Yay!) Today I'm headed over to my parents' house for some baking fun, and then we're headed to the zoo tonight to see it covered in twinkly lights and hang out with the nocturnal animals.

Right now, though, I promised I'd share some snapshots of this year's Christmas decor. I went a bit crazy this year, and the decorations spread beyond the living room. There is also a lot of tinsel and shininess happening, but I wouldn't trade a single piece of aluminum. :)

There were some parts of the house where I didn't take any photos because it was too dark (the curse of living in between tall houses), but I got some of my favorite things captured. Want to see?

Living room: Tinsel wreaths around plastic deer heads and my grandma's holly garland.
Gold glitter deer and plastic lighted lamp post!

Living room: Silk red ball ornaments in hubs's grandmother's mid-century dish.
Aluminum Christmas tree (thrifted this summer!) with my grandmother's glass ornaments.

Dining room: Party time tinsel garland bar area. More tinsel garland around the wall art.

Dining room: vintage fabric tablecloth, more tinsel wreaths, brass deer candle holders and red silk ball ornaments in pedestal vases. Silver tree farm with bows, two redbirds from Binx Ceramic and a Santa bear carved by my grandmother's friend.

Kitchen: More tinsel garland along the shelves; new Vera holiday dish towel from Crate and Barrel; Santa head string lights along the chalkboard.

Guest room: Where all of last year's decor went! :) My favorite thing is the tree branches in Thermoses. 

Last year's tree and brass deer among the bottle brush trees.

Almost everything in these decorations was thrifted at some point, and a lot of it is vintage (of course). I love that you can piece together a fun and festive atmosphere for not a ton of dough! I'm most proud of the green tinsel wreaths, which I fashioned out of vintage garland wrapped around embroidery hoops (which you can find at thrifts a ton cheaper than wreath forms!).

How about you? How have you been thrifty this year as you welcome the holidays?
