Console Table in Christmas Neutrals with Oriental Trading

Console16_650
Happy Friday! I've been having a lot of fun decorating my new console table and shared how I decorated it for the fall HERE. Today I'm sharing how I decorated it for Christmas with the help of Oriental Trading!

Oriental Trading has a great selection of Christmas decor, crafts and more. You can visit their Christmas store HERE.

This table is located right outside our garage door. I am planning to get a cathedral-style mirror to hang behind it after the holidays. I had intended to get it before this post, but it just didn't happen! I have really been into Christmas neutrals lately and this table was not an exception of that!


Top of the Console Table:

For the top of the console table, I have my terrarium from IKEA decorated with a glittery reindeer, a wooden palette sign that says 'Joy' in gold, ornaments and bottle brush trees. You'll also see a gold tree that I decorated with ribbon and some small ornaments, a sled, a snowflake under the terrarium and a bowl full of ornaments. I even got a snowball/pom pom garland to hang on the knobs!

I kept the bottom pretty simple, with my vintage suitcase (see tutorial HERE), books with their fabric covers (see tutorial HERE), a tin filled with a vase and bow and burlap tree.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Autumn and I are headed to a cookie decorating party in our PJ's tonight! I'm trying to be good about what I eat before Christmas, but I may have to make an exception tonight! ;)

Be sure to check out Oriental Trading for holiday decor and crafting merchandise! Thanks to them, my console table is ready for when my family comes over for Christmas!

Happy Thursday everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, even if it gets to be a little hectic at times. I am hoping my dad will be able to come over for Christmas, I've been praying for better health for him. I'm also just trying to remember to move that darn elf every night. I'm telling ya, if you're a new mom... DON'T even start the elf. ;) 

I'm trying to finish up my Christmas shopping. Today I wanted to share my newest JORD watch with y'all and if you keep reading, you'll see that JORD offers engraving now on the back of your watch OR on the box. If you know me, you know this is something I love, love, LOVE. I would monogram everything if I could!

Here is the back of the watch and you'll see I had my initials engraved on it in block letters. These personalized watches make the perfect gift for any occasion. You can gift your spouse and add both of your initials to the back, or gift your parents and other family members... these would even make great bridesmaid gifts!

JORD watches are hand-crafted wood timepieces in a variety of styles for men or women. You can select several different face colors, wood types or now even engraving on the watch itself or box it comes in!

If you click HERE, you can enter your email address and be instantly emailed a $25 gift code to use towards any JORD watch or service on the site.

Now, I wanted to share a little about how I styled this watch. I recently signed up for Fab Fit Fun and they sent me this AH-mazing scarf. At first I was disappointed in the color I received, but honestly... this scarf can be worn with ANYTHING, because the colors act as neutrals. It also looks GREAT with my new JORD watch! With all of the holiday hustle and bustle, I can throw on a simple white tee, leggings, riding boots and if I had this warm blanket scarf and my JORD watch, I feel a lot more dressed up and stylish. It's definitely a win-win outfit combo!

I selected the Frankie 35 Zebrawood & Champagne watch and the colors and champagne color of the face work so well with many of my outfits and gold jewelry.

Christmas Front Porch Decor {Holiday Home Tour Link Party}

Welcome to the Holiday Home Tour Party!

Today I am sharing my Christmas Front Porch and you can also stop by four other blogs to see their Holiday Home Tours! I will be sharing the inside of my home next week, so stay tuned for that! Also, be sure to link up your Holiday Home Tours through Dec. 24!

ChristFrontPorch3
I always seem to put my main focus on the INSIDE of our home for Christmas and I've always neglected our front porch. We usually put lights out, but I didn't put much thought into decorating our covered porch. Our porch is pretty large, so I've been wanting to spend some time on making it look better. I figure since the lights only come on at night, I should work on making the porch look nice during the day, too! Today I'm going to share with you how I transformed my porch with Christmas neutrals, which I have been fond of this year. 

Hope you enjoy as you follow along and don't forget to enter a giveaway I have going for a Heat Press at the end of this post. :)

CORRECT Holiday Home 2016

This is what our front porch looks like this year... ignore the dead hosta and bush with all of the leaves stuck in it, we still have leaves pouring off our sweet gum ball tree. I usually put light up trees around the porch area, but I'm not sure if I'll have time this year. I also usually have greens wrapped around the posts (with lights). I'm so behind on the outdoor lights game, that I may skip this year. The husband did get our lights up on the roof, though!

Here is the front porch from last year. I went with reds, whites and greens and this year I'm going more neutral. I hope to work on it a little more next year, I would like to make bigger bows for the tops of the topiaries in the urns and add some small ornaments. I also may add  in a few pops of red for a little color and I need to work on a homemade Christmas wreath. I also really like how the lights 'fill in' some of the porch area. So, it's always nice to have something to work on the next year! Goals, people! Goals!!

Here is the front door and a cute banner that I found at Hobby Lobby that says 'Making Spirits Bright'.

Here is a closer view of the 'sitting' area of the porch. 


How I Decorated a Shelf Ladder for the Holidays:
ChristFrontPorch13
Last summer, I received this shelf c/o At Home and I have had so much fun decorating it for each season!


Top Shelf:

ChristFrontPorch16
I personalize the top chalkboard every season with something new. I try to keep it short, so I wrote out 'Seasons Greetings'. For the top shelf I have a gold deer, a wooden ornament, gold poinsettia and some greens with a white ornament.

Bottom Shelf:
ChristFrontPorch15
For the bottom shelf, I found a wood palette with a deer and 'Joy to the World' stamped on it, an oversized glittery acorn and I placed a white/gold tree on a small wreath on top of an old popcorn tin. I added some greens and a gold ornament to finish it off.

How I Decorated the Wooden Reindeer:

I've had these wooden reindeer for over a decade! I have decorated them SO many different ways. I love to fill their backs with ornaments and they look adorable with a bow around their neck.


Sitting Area/Bench:

For the bench, I threw a soft blanket over it and added a few pillows in neutral colors. I just love how it turned out!
