If there is ever a year you would want to decorate for Christmas the day after Halloween, this would be it – thank you 2020! I think I started decorating the weekend after and i’ve been doing a little bit here and there ever since – leaving the outdoor decorations for last. I’m loving my 2020 Christmas decor and i’m excited to show it to you. Welcome to my Holiday Home Tour: Reds, Whites and Flocked Greens. Keep reading for all the details!

The Focal Point – The Christmas Tree
“Oh’ Christmas tree, Oh’ Christmas tree…”. What would a holiday home tour be without it’s centerpiece – the lovely Christmas tree. For this year, I kept the same theme as last. Buffalo check isn’t going anywhere and I still think it’s beautiful so I wanted to use it again. It’s especially gorgeous with added in pops of red!

First and foremost, my tree is a 9 foot flock and gorgeous. It’s so pretty just by itself without all the ornaments and ribbon. But, of course, I have to decorate it! I start with the ribbon which consists of a buffalo check burlap, burlap ribbon and red ribbon. I love how these look layered together and with them being different textures adds in more detail. All ribbon and burlap I purchased from Hobby Lobby.
I added in snowy pinecones to give it an even more Wintry feel – I love how they look! The ornaments consist of red glitter balls that I found at Crate and Barrel two years ago after Christmas. I got all they had and really wish I had more! They’re so pretty and add in just enough glitz. I added in large buffalo check balls that are frosted and topped with pinecones. These are also so pretty and I found them at a local florist. I don’t overdo it with my ornaments because I love to still be able to see my tree. It’s too pretty to completely cover!
A Cozy Christmas Corner
My favorite spot in our home right now is where the Christmas tree sits. Not only is there the tree but it’s surrounded with every bit of cozy. Think cozy plaids, fuzzy blankets and wood accents. This corner is like my own little Winter wonderland. Next to it is the fireplace, which brings me to the next topic – the mantel.
The Stockings Were Hung By The Chimney With Care
The mantel – the decor piece we all love to decorate. I love how mine turned out this year and I’ll be so sad when it’s time to take it all down. Another reason I decorated early – so I can enjoy it longer! The first decor piece I added to this space is the flocked greenery – hello Winter. I then added in a red berry garland to not only give it more fluff but to also add in a pop of red. I love how this turned out! Next I added in the sweetest gingerbread houses that were a find in Target’s Bullseye section last ear – yes, the dollar section. Lastly, the stockings – which are red and white and really tie in the garland and tree together.

Pretty Flocked Garland
Flocked garland is my favorite – even if it does tend to make a mess while hanging. It’s totally worth it and nothing a vacuum can’t quickly clean up! I used two 9ft strands to cover my stair rails – which are pre-lit of course. I’m not much for stringing lights. Hanging comes easy with command hooks. I finished the look with a simple black, velvet ribbon and a red and white ribbon tied into the simplest bow. Sometimes less is more!

A Festive, Farmhouse Style Front Porch
If you’re having guests, the main entrance really sets the tone for what they are to expect when entering your home. Though we aren’t having many guests this year because 2020 – I still like to keep it welcoming for ourselves!
A mix of vintage pieces and buffalo check really bring out a farmhouse style. Our home is a traditional style but I love to do a mix of modern and farmhouse. These vintage pieces – the wood sled and classic Radio Flyer wagon belong to my parents and have been well taken care of while also still in use!
Flocked greenery is my favorite – it’s just so pretty and gives holiday decor the look and feel of Winter. We live in North Carolina, so a snow here is a hit or miss!
My porch is a mix different greens – from fresh holly cut from the woods behind our home, the smaller flocked trees and the tall glistening trees on each side of the door. The trees on each side of the door were a must have for me. I just love how tall they are! 6.5ft and are beautiful. They’re coated with a simple glitter that creates a frosted look. They glisten even when the lights aren’t on.
I finished the look with a large cranberry wreath for the front door, bows to top the trees that I had made at a local florist, gifts to fill the wagon and a welcoming doormat!
