Decking The Halls

December is here & so is the winter weather here in Saskatchewan! 
We had yet another dump of snow last night & it certainly looks like Christmas outside. There's no shortage of snow this year! :)

It's also looking very Christmasy everywhere you go - including our house! 

Our halls are decked & Christmas preparations are in full force.

This year, I decorated in keeping with my silver theme, but added some turquoise into the mix. Just touches here & there, but it a little goes a long way. It's so pretty!

Most of our gifts are purchased & wrapped already, but we have a few left to buy.

I kept my sheet music wreath up from my fall decor & just changed out the seasonal touches. The clothes pins make it perfect for displaying Christmas cards!

A trifle bowl filled with shiny baubles & candles add a bit more sparkle to the living room.

My silver side table in the entryway is in its glory during the Christmas season.

I also found some beautiful printables to use in my decor this year. The one below is available here

I printed it off & backed it with wrapping paper. Into the frame it went & it adds so much to the decor as well as reminding us what the Christmas season is all about... the biggest birthday party ever!

Isn't that owl the cutest?

My lanterns also got a touch of Christmas added to them. One is filled with glittered pinecones, the large one has a battery operated candle on a timer so it comes on every evening. My sequinned reindeer finishes off this little grouping.

On the bar top between the living room & kitchen, I added another printable (available here) in a frame & more shiny baubles with a sweet little birdie.

And can you see my snowy owls in the background??

Here's panoramic shot (taken with my phone so not super high quality) of the living room & bar top.

One last little touch... My mom came & helped me decorate this year (btw, she's a professional interior decorator - I know, I'm blessed!) & between her & I we created this white, turquoise, & silver vignette on top of the cupboards in my kitchen. 

Lots of milk glass, some vintage pyrex, & more shiny baubles help bring Christmas into the kitchen as well.

There you go! I hope you enjoyed the tour of my main floor Christmas decor. I'll be sharing lots of Christmasy goodness over the month of December, so be sure to follow along!

    Your Christmas decorations are beautiful - the touches of turquoise are perfect :-) The sheet music wreath is charming, and such a great way to display your Christmas cards. And the console table vignette is so pretty - love the wreath hung in front of the mirror.

    I absolutely adore your purple walls! Can you share the paint colour?
