Christmas at the Holiday House

Hi friends, Emma here. With the Larson family traveling to Missouri this weekend to spend Christmas near family, I thought I’d give you a little, mini-tour of how I tried to make their holiday house here in Missouri really festive for them. Her daughters know that Santa is going to visiting this house (wink, wink), so I knew it needed to feel festive. If you saw Elsie’s tour of her house at Christmas then you know those girls are used to things being VERY festive. I don’t think I achieved quite that level, but I did love the idea of decorating for them and also then keeping all these decorations for this house in the future. 🙂

In the front living room, there are two trees—one gold and a smaller champagne tree. I love the look of them together next to the mantel.

In the dining room, I updated the letter board and then I bought too many gold ornaments, so I decided to make a little centerpiece out of them.

I wanted a tree in the back living room too, just because it’s nice to have a tree all lit up when you’re watching a movie or something at night. It’s just so cozy! So I bought this really sweet soft pink tree and I LOVE it.

That’s pretty much it—thanks for letting me share and happy holidays! xo. Emma

  • I love these trees.It looks like the pink tree is mostly lit from the inside. How do you achieve that look?
