Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving last week! As promised, here is a quick Holiday “Home Tour” for you guys! It’s more of a living room tour then a home tour, but that’s all I really decorate for now. 🙂

First thing I will say is DON’T BUY EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE! It will feel like a waste of money, remember these decorations are only up for about a month!  I have collected all of this over the last 5 years or so, and it will continue to grow every year. It’s like giving myself an early Christmas present every year when I go out and find something new to decorate with.

And you don’t have to break the bank with your decorations. For instance I found the majority of my ornaments at either Target or the Dollar Tree. And of course I have a lot of hand-me-downs from my parents.

Most of my decorations come from either Target, Marshals, Homegoods or Bed Bath & Beyond (and remember to save those 20% coupons.. they never expire and you can use as many as you have).

You don’t have to add a lot to what you already have in your house. I put this rustic wooden Christmas tree in our home bar and a simple red and gold pillow to the couch to add a pop of color to the room.

I also love adding silver and gold to any Christmas color palette.

And don’t forget, YOUR WRAPPING PAPER is also your decorations!! Wrap your gifts as you get them and put then under or around your tree!

Hope this helps sparks some ideas for your own home holiday decorations!! If you have any specific questions on where I got any of this please comment below! I’ll get back to you ASAP!!

**Side note, if you noticed the third stocking it’s because we are rescuing a sweet puppy from a local shelter on Friday! We can’t wait to bring him home! More details and pictures to come!**

love MariaMurphy

    I’d love to know where you got your couch! I’ve been searching for months for the perfect cozy sectional for my new house.

      Hi Megan!! The couch is from Ashley Furniture! It’s called the “Frontier Canyon Modular Sectional” and it’s actually on sale right now too! 🙌🏼
