Festive Red Christmas Decor

Good Monday morning to you!  We had a great weekend that kicked off on Friday with my son's school Christmas concert (the cutest!), followed by my best girlfriend coming to town to stay a few days.  How fun to finally get some much-needed girl time!  We joined our other besties at North Italia Sunday night- definitely go there if you're in Houston- it was so good!  She left this morning, and now we're preparing for the in-laws to come on Wednesday.  It's time to relax and unwind, but I admit, I still have those last-minute gifts to purchase and then I'll be focusing on the food and groceries. 

Today, I'm sharing more of our holiday decor.  You've already seen the sparkly Christmas tree, dining room, and pink and gold holiday nursery, so we've moving on to the master sitting room.  This room is the passway between our bedroom and the master bath and we use it for listening to the tv while getting ready in the morning (or I have it on while folding laundry on my bed) or I retreat here when someone is watching football for hours in the living room and I want to watch Real Housewives! ;)

We went with a lively red and green natural theme in here this year, with lots of red berries throughout.  I'm loving the festive look and it's so much more colorful than it's usual beige and cream.

I'm glad to see that someone else is enjoying this room as much as I am!

My original inspiration for this holiday decor was the natural, fresh garland that I got at Trader Joes for just $6.99 for 20 feet. Then, to make it fuller and fill in the gaps, I layered in a few faux branches that I've had from Hobby Lobby.

I've sprayed the garland with water to keep it fresh, but I don't know how long it will last.  We also have some in our living room, on the media cabinet.  It looks so pretty spilling over the edge of the shelf.

I added in gift boxes from Target and one large box I wrapped with red and white dotted paper from Hobby Lobby.  Those red and gold Sugar Paper gift boxes are fabulous and come in a variety of colors at Target.  My store was really running low on the selection though- guess they're selling out fast.

Continuing with the natural decor elements, I found two Christmas tree plants at my local garden store and placed them in pretty silver urns from Ikea.  To make the urns look more Christmasy, I tied a plaid ribbon (from Walgreens) into a bow and attached it with an ornament hook.

Because the t.v. components are necessary, I tried to camouflage them by decorating around them with the garland, baskets and pretty gift boxes.

Target also had these faux red berry arrangements in a small silver vase that I couldn't resist.  The red candle is also from Target and the tag says, "Be Joyful."

Our starburst mirror got a dose of holiday cheer by simply hanging a wreath on top of the mirror.

On the far wing chair is actually a reversible blanket scarf (similar) and red velvet pillow.  Scarves are so pretty and an easy way to add color and pattern to your decor.

Our "Believe" pillow is years old from Hobby Lobby, but still a favorite!  So cute the stitching around the edges.

I'm feeling very thankful for this little guy and how much joy and light he brings into our home and lives.  I'm cherishing the one-on-one time with him these last few months, until we become a family of four!  Did y'all feel that way before your second child?

  1. Your little boy is such a cutie! I love the way you have this room decorated, & I love the tip to use an ornament hook to hang ribbons :) I also use blanket scarves to decorate, they're so obvious, but I feel like sometimes we overlook the obvious things :)

    1. I know! This scarf was sitting on my bed, needing to go back into my closet and then it struck me that it would be cute thrown over the chair. Love the reversible pattern.

  4. Megan, this is really beautiful and so festive! I love this room. You did a gorgeous job and the red is so pretty. I think I would plant myself right down in that chair and never leave. James is such a cutie!! I bet he is really getting excited for Christmas and shortly after a little sister.
