Our Gold Christmas Staircase

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed the long weekend.  I spent the better part of Friday and Saturday decorating our home for Christmas and it’s feeling quite festive here.  I went with a metallic gold and silver color scheme, which I’ve never done before, and I really like it.  Today, I’m sharing how our staircase turned out.

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that on Saturday night I about gave up on these stairs in the middle of it because I thought it was looking terrible.  But, I got some words of encouragement from Courtney (Courtney Out Loud) that were much appreciated.  I’m glad I stuck with it!

 I used garland from WalMart (the same garland I used last year) and then added the string of gold beads from Hobby Lobby.
The gold bells were also found at Hobby Lobby.
I added decorative snowflakes and star ornaments that my mom gave me.  The pine cones provide a natural element.

And now the tree is up where the chair and table were:)  If you’d like to look at last year’s stairs, you can go HERE.

Thank you to everyone who entered the RoRo’s CinnARolls giveaway.  The WINNER is:
And don’t forget to link up your holiday craft with Cassie (Hi Sugarplum) tomorrow:)

  1. Looks great! So gorgeous and classic, I love it. Your staircase is stunning as well – I love a beautiful Christmas staircase, and yours is no exception!

  2. Oh I think it looks GREAT!!! So festive and what a statement on your stairs! What I would give to have a staircase like that! 🙂

  3. It looks wonderful. 🙂 I love the new color scheme. I used those beads in red last year, and they do add a nice touch. 🙂 I'm still trying to get my house straight before I decorate. Now, that's a hot mess!

  4. yay!! it looks awesome! you have some MAJOR stairs to decorate too! thats a lotta garland. Im doing the whole gold & silver theme too- isnt so festive and chic?

  5. Wow! Your staircase is absolutely stunning! I just discovered your blog and I am now your newest follower. xo

  6. I think you did such a good job! The gold beads are my favorite- they keep it from looking cliche by adding such a dash of fun. And i think the bells are done really tastefully. It looks really great!

  7. It's beautiful, Megan! It's elegant! I picture you coming down that staircase in your glamorous dress heading out for a holiday party.

  8. That looks so great — and I'm tired just imaging how much work it must have been! But what a treat to see every time you walk through the door!!! Is it bad that I was busy squinting at the photos in the background…trying to get a peek at your wedding? 😉 You and I are nothing if not super observant of pics! 🙂

  9. So beautiful, Megan!! I love the color scheme and your attention to detail with the small ornaments, beads, etc. You really did a great job this year, although I loved last year's staircase too! Can't wait to see the tree next week! : )

  10. megan, it looks so great! fyi for your readers, i found some great deals on decor at target yesterday. they had sparkly snowflakes like the ones your mom gave you in packs of 4 for… wait for it… $1.
    good catching up with your blog, friend. 🙂
    happy holiday season. xo

  11. Very pretty! I have some bells like yours that the hubs got at Lowe's. I put them on my big wreath on my gate outside. Looking forward to seeing your tree.

  12. I think it turned out really pretty. I've always loved the gold at Christmas.

    I did something similar many years ago in my home; I had a maple railing and did garland with a gold sheer wire ribbon (gives it some substance)-the gold organza ribbon had gold and silver threads in it. I used white lights on the garland and then hung crystal and glass ornaments (some were clear and some had gold or silver on them, mostly gold)on the garland. The gold looked amazing with the maple staircase. They shimmered and caught the light and it was truly breathtaking.

  13. I loooove your staircase. We are a few years away from building and this is at the top of my MUST list! 🙂 It looks fantastic!

  14. Home stair lift to ensure a comfortable and safe flooring, access, and provide built-in remote control operation. This is a good elevator lifting capacity, a comfortable seat, adjustable arm width, and so on.
