Christmas Tour of Homes: Part 2

Thank you guys so much for all of the sweet compliments on my first part of the Christmas Home Tour. Even though it was a lot of work, we really enjoyed doing it and it was great to help with a community fundraiser. Now for the rest of the tour!

For the master bedroom, we went with this Pottery Barn inspired look of wrapping greenery around our bed posts. Thrifty Decor Chick did this last year and also used some lanterns, so we came up with something similar by wiring some votive holders from Dollar Tree and placing LED votives in them. I just LOVE the way it turned warm & cozy!
We also have a small table-top tree that my mom flocked and it turned out so cute.
For our bathroom, we thought it'd be fun to do some floating candles and rose petals in the tub. Everybody loved it! I used my Cricut to cut out "Wise Men Still Seek Him" and put that on our mirrors. We also put some fresh greenery in the chandelier and between the sinks.
The powder room is the other bathroom downstairs. We put some vinyl on the mirror and a few other decorations as well.
Now let's head out to the back veranda. It is incredibly windy where we live, but we still put a few decorations out and fortunately most of it stayed put that day.

Now let's go back inside and head upstairs - almost done! First up is the guest room. We put tons of little trees on top of the dresser, as well as a few candles, and then hung ornaments from the mirror. We also draped a NOEL banner (cut with my Cricut) across the window.
This room has a small bathroom in it. For it, I just put some decorative stickers on the mirror and added some ornaments around a candle.
For Manny's room, we used a cute little rustic Christmas tree decorated with sock monkey ornaments (surprise!) and popcorn strands...kind of a vintage feel. I designed the sock monkey ornaments then had them printed at Arts Cow. I was also able to pick up a few other fun sock monkey decorations thanks to some of you sweet readers that gave me the heads-up on products you'd seen.
Manny's bathroom is part of a jack and jill bathroom. Here is the vanity on his side.
The bathroom connects to the office/etc. room. Here is the vanity on that side.
And finally, the office/etc. room. I shared the details about most of the decorations in this post. We also hung some ornaments from the window and put a small tree up. I love the color palette in this room of the red, turquoise, and green.
Okay, that is all my friends! Thanks so much for looking and we hope you have a fabulous Christmas! :)
