Home for the Holidays Blog Tour


Welcome to "Home for the Holidays" blog tour! 

You're probably coming from one of my FAVORITE bloggers, Gloribell's blog, "I Don't Know How She Does It" and I am happy you decided to stop by! Don't you just love all the warm woods and neutral decor she uses in her home? I'm a big fan! I'm going to show you how I updated my living room for Christmas. I wanted to incorporate deep, moody colors like black combined with and warm merlot colors. (Mmmm...merlot...) I had in mind to do lots of red this year, but I chose to go with the wine color instead because the color scheme can carry me through winter, after Christmas is over. (Keep in mind that we are technically still in Fall until December 21 so I need my decor to last me a while!) Anyway, let's get started!

*This post is sponsored by King of Christmas. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own. No, seriously.




As soon as you walk in to my house, you get a glimpse of my beautiful King Of Christmas tree. I wanted to create a sort of "entrance" to my home where things unfold as you walk in. #drama. I wish I had a foyer! 








I was debating whether to go real or faux this year with my tree. When King of Christmas wanted to sponsor our tour, I immediately made my mind up LOL. I have seen their trees before and they are STUNNING. I got the 7 foot Delaware Spruce. I felt that tree looked the most realistic, and let me tell you, it looks GREAT. It's so bushy and the branches are nice and long. I recently was comparing it to other trees I have seen in the market and the difference is in the needles of the trees. My King of Christmas tree has two different types of faux needles which gives the tree more texture and depth, making it look more realistic.








ALSO: YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN YOUR OWN KING OF CHRISTMAS TREE! YES, YOU READ RIGHT! YOUR OWN KING OF CHRISTMAS TREE!

OK, so back to me. For my tree decor, I added some shatter-proof ornaments (because kids and  dog) in the wine color combined with some gold and brown ones. They came in a pack and you can order them HERE. After I was done adding the ornaments, I felt my tree looked to circle-y. To many spheres LOL. So I broke it up by adding dollar store frames with vintage style gift tags that I cut to size. You can find similar gift tags HERE.
Threw in some bows , some black tassels AND some gorgeous faux flowers! I think the flowers were my favorite part of the tree! You can find the flowers HERE.







I'll keep the rest of my tour short and sweet. After you are done here, go check out my friends and she how they decked the halls this holiday. At the end of this post, I have included a list of all participating bloggers for your viewing pleasure.
