McDonald's Christmas home tour is set in the most wonderful time of the year! Many beautiful things are going on like parties, shopping, baking and decorating of course. So this year we wanted to invite all of you on a McDonald's Christmas Home Tour of our Christmas decorations. We hope you enjoy and are inspired to decorate for the holidays.
It's so exciting to take you on the McDonald's Christmas Home Tour. The sites and sounds of Christmas make us feel like a little child on the inside!
MCDONALD'S CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR
There are so many favorite places to show you in the home tour. It's hard to decide where to begin. Starting with a sentimental pieces seems right.
Our mantle is a little of old and new decorations. To begin the project we brought out our Thomas Kinkade print that my sister Pam bought me for Christmas many years ago. It has always been one of my favorite Christmas decorations for the mantle. This year we decided on a white Christmas, so we found the wooden trees at TJ Maxx and began building our design from there. Next, we pulled out these old pinecone lights and garland to create a swag across the fireplace. Then Hannah came across the beautiful wooden village and we fell in love. Last, for the finishing touch, Hannah brought out her sweater garland. It was the icing on the cake.

Believe it or not, our tree is ancient. We purchased it so many years ago. But it has been a great tree, and we love it. Since we were going for a white Christmas this year we pulled out anything that was white, silver or gold and began decorating. It is a “less is more” kind of tree because usually we have lots more ornaments, but we like this new look.
Well, if you're going to spend lots of time coordinating all your colors on your tree and mantle then why not go all out and coordinate your packages to match. This year we decided on browns, white and a touch of blue since our living room has some original blues. And who can resist a pretty gold or silver bow?
I have to admit that these pillows were not purchased to be Christmas pillows, but they work for the holidays. Doesn't the blue pillow look like a snowflake? I never thought of that until we finished all the decor.
This is where the story of Christmas begins at our house. Years ago I purchased this nativity online, and it has always had a special place in my heart. This year we took some of the tree trimmings from the back porch and added them around Joseph, Mary, and Baby Jesus along with some of those tiny, little lights underneath. It makes the nativity glow.
When the girls were little Marty purchased this book for us to read together each day in December. There are doors on the pages that open to reveal a small part of the Christmas story. Children love these kinds of books so our girls would take turns opening the doors. Now that the girls are older it is hard to find time daily to read each page, so we read it together on Christmas day as a family.
Our new hall addition is our chalkboard. I have a feeling this is going to be my new favorite. It's a perfect place for creativity to flow without worrying about messing it up. And sweet messages are easily viewed by all who come in.
I hope you all have enjoyed the McDonald's Christmas Home Tour! Let us know if you pick a different color scheme from year to year. We'd love to hear from you!
