Thank you for hopping over from Flourish & Knot and welcome to my Rocky Mountain Bliss! I’m so excited to be participating in the Simply Seasonal Holiday home tour and can’t wait to share some of my Christmas decorations with you.

Having worked retail for many years it took me a long time to get on board with decorating for the holidays. My number one rule is no holiday decorations are allowed out before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is its own holiday and it gets to have a very special three weeks in between Christmas and Halloween. 

After that, gathering up the decorations boxes for an afternoon of holiday decor can be fun. We started with the outside of the house the Saturday after Thanksgiving and were lucky enough to have an amazing neighbor who rented a cherry picker come lend us a hand with the top tier of lights. This sped up getting the outside lights by a TON.



We haven’t yet found the perfect artificial tree so we followed the instructions we received from the tree lot to wait until after December 1st to put up a live tree. 

I love the smell of pine and there is nothing better then coming home to the house all woodsy and warm. As I was growing up, my mom picked out ornaments for my sisters and I to have when we each built homes of our own. My collection is a combination of Coco Cola pieces and Hallmark. 

When we first moved in I knew I wanted to make the front living room welcoming and inviting. I picked up our entry table from Target last year and I love decorating it for the holidays. Eventually I want to completely fill it with decorations and am working on building it out each year. 

My favorite holiday decoration on the table is the boxwood topiary (which I liked enough last year to keep it out after the holidays). I used gold and silver ornaments to tie in the lantern with a festive look.

Our downstairs living room uses teal and black as the main colors. We’d already ordered the stockings before we moved in so it works well that they were already black! 

Having the TV above the mantel creates a bit decorating challenge, but I think some garland and side decorations gives the stockings the holiday love it needs to complete the look. I love how much fun you can have with apothecary jars so I added some teal and silver ornaments to bring some color to the rest of the built in display. 

Thank you so much for stopping in to check out my decorating tips this holiday season! I’ll be working on some craft projects over the next week, so come back to visit for more inspiration later this month. Be sure to hop on over the next Simply Seasonal tour home at Pocketful of Posies to hear how she readies her home for the holidays. I’ve added a link to everyone else participating {and the day they post} so you can be sure to check out all the amazing blogs in this series.
