    Gorgeous!!! I felt the same way about posting my home tour – comparison be damned! LOL! Christmas is my favorite time of year! I honestly could sit contented for hours, no TV, no cell phone, and just sip hot cocoa in the glow of my Christmas lights. It’s so peaceful, and everybody seems nicer. 🙂

    Your home is stunning Tara. I love the polar bear and the bottle brush trees and all of the lovely goodness! You did a fabulous job with all of it! Thanks for inviting us in 🙂

    Boozy candy cane hot chocolate?! Ohhhh, yes please!
    Since my place is teeny, I only have room for one tree, but I decorate as much as possible because I love it! I may also wear reindeer ears when at home. Maybe.

      I don’t doubt you do, crazy lady! In a smaller space, it’s probably easier to get that look of opulence and fullness – I’m sure your place looks amazing.

    Awe… I wish I could come for a boozy hot chocolate! The house looks amazing! I am sure the girls are loving having two trees! Does Santa have to put presents under both? Talk to you soon!

      Santa only puts presents under the big one, but maybe a stray one might find itself under the Anna and Elsa tree! I wish you could join me for a boozy hot chocolate too! Maybe in the New Year we can get together!?!? Somehow!?!?

      Thanks, Andrea. It was partially my idea – I really wanted to do a blue and silver look!

    How exciting it must be to decorate your new home for the holidays! Looks great, Tara. Must run out and see if I can get my hands on some of those bottle brush trees!

      It’s VERY exciting to be able to properly decorate. Last year was a bit of a bust with the house sale.

      And definitely get some of those trees – they’re SO cheap!

      I want to stock up too – they have white AND silver. I’ll probably have to buy both.

      And then maybe get some green ones and flock them.

      Gah. Dollarama – you are my kryptonite.

    Um, can I please come over for a boozy candy and see all this gorgeousness in person? I am so jealous of two big trees and two big beautiful mantels to decorate. It looks IN-CRED-IBLE Tara!! And I am in love with the bottle brush trees too… totally planning those for my ‘tablescape’. Amazing job, friend!!

    Oh my gosh! Both of your trees are fabulous! I love how you decorated your tree from the perspective/theme that it was a floral arrangement. I also love how you liked a bit of tacky but to be honest I did not see anything that was tacky at all. I just saw fabulous style. Have a wonderful Christmas!

    I really like the poinsettias in your tree! Very classy and traditional. And I bet your girls are obsessed with their Frozen tree! The snow is my favorite! So so cute!

    Gorgeous, Tara! And you are scoring major mom points for that Frozen themed room! I’m sure the girls will remember that for a long time. It will come in handy when they’re teens 😉

Thank-you for opening your beautiful home for this awesome tour, everything is wonderfully beautiful! I adore that vintage deer, she’s so sweet! Merry Christmas to you and your adorable family! xo
