Merry and Bright holiday home tour

Today I am sharing some easy ideas for refreshing your space for Christmas without spending a ton of money!

Just before we left town for Thanksgiving I worked on sprucing up our front entrance. These double doors are a favorite of mine to decorate. I refreshed the wreaths that I already had. It was easy to change out the ribbon and add a bit of evergreen from the garden. Above the doors, I used this perfect garland that I found at Hobby Lobby (50% off of course). It has a mix of pinecones, red berries and real looking pine needles.Christmas entry with twin wreaths and urns

Before I go on,

Let me introduce you to the Merry and Bright Home Tour decorators:

Welcome to Refresh Restyle

Adding a few touches of Christmas decor to your door or front porch area is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

You can never go wrong with fresh winter greens from your yard. Keep the expenses down!

Refreshed urns with stuff from the yard

For the urns, I just cut the tops off the summer flowers. Yep. Left the roots in there! I found the red twigs at Hobby Lobby (50% off). I placed them in the center. Clipped my evergreens and stuck them around the twigs. Filled in with fake berries. I did this last year and the greens lasted a long time!

Christmas idea for the entry table

As soon as you walk in our front door you are greeted by our vintage buffet. The lamps are a staple there, all I did was:

  • add candles
  • add greenery
  • add Christmas ornaments

The small skis have been spied all over blog land. Who can resist the $3 section at Target?

Buffet at the entry filled with Christmas decor

This is where I serve drinks and set up our buffet. The perfect space to decorate for any holiday.

I found the perfect sign for our Merry and Bright tour at Big Lots! It’s looks like a chalkboard!

Merry and Bright Entry

Living room roses and hydrangea centerpiece

I have such a mix of blue in the living room and entry, I decided to add red roses in the arrangement on the coffee table. When it comes to colors, I am not a stickler to matchy-matchy. I think all colors look beautiful together! The bedrooms are decorated with red and gray.Christmas Tree in aqua and turquoise

This year I am one of the Balsam Hill 12 Bloggers of Christmas. My tree is filled with all things that remind me of winters first snow fall. Being in Georgia, that probably won’t happen any time soon!

Last year I used a lot of plaid in my Christmas decor and I was a little sad not including any plaid in my blue rooms and then I found this awesome throw at HomeGoods. It is perfect!

What are your decorating plans??

    3. Gorgeous! I love the buffet the most! So festive and bright. I have actually given up this year on adding anything to our décor, but my mind is racing for next year. I can’t wait till the Christmas clearance sales hit in two weeks!

    4. Hi Debbie,
      Your decor,is beautiful and I love that you didn’t go with traditional colors—so refreshing!!
      I love all your bargain touches that look like a million bucks in your home.
      Cheers to the holiday season. We’ll definitely lunch in the new year!
      Xo, Shelly

    5. Hi there, All of your Christmas decor looks beautiful! I am also part of the Merry and Bright Holiday Home Tour and am so happy to have found your blog. I really love your porch urns, you’ve motivated me to go out back and cut some of my branches off for my front porch. You mentioned your were a little sad that this is your first time not using plaid in your decor and I mentioned in my post this is the first time I’ve used plaid in my Christmas decor. I’m glad you found that pretty plaid blanket. 🙂
