A Christmas tour of the garden house is a special one this year. Full of greenery with little pops of red for an epic holiday vibe.
I love a good holiday home tour, don’t you? I love to peer into homes and see all of the pretty decorations and Christmas cheer. So many great ideas and beautiful things to feast your eyes on. Well, this year I feel so fortunate because I’m not only going to share a Christmas tour of the 1820, but of the garden house as well.
Today, it’s all about the garden house!
Since the reveal of my garden house, two photo shoots have been hosted, and holiday decorating began almost immediately. And what a fun place to decorate, right. Ideas swarming around in my head for years, finally going from pen to paper, to the real deal with a little tweaking here and there.
And with all Christmas decorating, tweaking is the best part. A beautiful concept one day, a couple additions or subtractions the next, for a whole new holiday decor. That’s my gig. I’m all about changing things up. This year, I vowed to only use what I have on hand; no shopping for new decor. No need really because it’s all about reusing, shopping what we have. And, the luxury of shopping for greenery around the yard, at neighbors, and the occasional long needle pine while on a hike, makes it all the better.
And budget friendly.
The Christmas vision for my beloved garden house was full of greens with little pops of red. Classic and traditional. Nature mixed with chic. I was going for a casual yet elegant vibe, and I achieved just that – at least for this go around.
Keeping the eye moving with greenery all over with a a smidge of glam added in. To me, this screams Christmastime. The flocked trees came from last year’s holiday display at a local retail store where their after-Christmas trash became my treasures. They offered, who was I to say no?!
Decorating the beams was a must. For the center beam, I attached chicken wire around, and attached the greenery and larger floral pieces with zip ties to keep everything seamless. The chicken wire made it easy to simply add stems in, keeping them in place. This is a good tip if you’re looking to decorate a ceiling beam or even a banister, if it allows.
With all holiday decorating, candles are a must. All of the pillar candles I got from here, and they’re LED. They’re not quite as bright as a real flame, but I love the romance and warmth of the glow. And, the lack of dripping candle wax is worth their weight in gold. And did I mention they come with a remote? Game changer.
Let’s step back for a minute and see it all, shall we?
I’ve put together a Christmas tour video for you of the garden house, that I know you will enjoy. When I was editing the video, I only wished that all of you could meet me here in the garden house, and enjoy a festive cocktail. Someday soon, I promise. But in the meantime, please join me for my garden house Christmas tour. And let’s raise a glass, together.
Christmastime is here.
