Simple, Welcoming, and most important - Cozy.
A home where memories are made this Holiday season.
That is my goal for my decor this year.
From the moment you walk through the door. A Cozy Christmas Family Room is all I want for this home.
This week, 34 amazing bloggers have gathered together to share their homes, and when Jenna from Wife in Progress asked me to participate - I jumped at the chance, of course!
So you will find links to all the blogs at the bottom of this post and will surely be put in the Christmas spirit after seeing their gorgeous homes! If you are here from Kendra's blog, Joy in our Home, welcome!
While I've shown you spatterings of rooms decorated for the season the past few weeks, I've waited until today to reveal my tree and my family room in it's entirety.
So let's start with my entryway.
My Cozy Christmas Family Room

Since I revealed my Christmas Entryway earlier this week, then you may have seen some sneaky peaks of my room.
But what I didn't show you was what you see when you walk in my door!
Squee!!! I just love my sparkly, snowflake tree!
Icicles, snowflakes, shiny baubles and curly garland paired with crystals and glass bulbs.
It's the only slightly austere thing in my room, but it's not about the fanciness.
It's about the simplicity of color and sparkles it gives at night.
So for my family room, my hope is that you want to slip off your shoes, grab a blanket and a cup of cocoa and sit and chat while looking at the tree.
Since these pillows from Homegoods reminded me of snowflakes, I thought they would be a perfect pairing with my snowflake tree.
Since I wanted to create a warm cozy environment, I added battery operated LED lights to the Vintage bottles behind my couch that glow in the evening.
Aren't these fishing weight glass ornaments the coolest?
Blue glass balls wrapped in twine, snuggled in a nest of greenery and wooden beads make me so happy!
Keeping with the cozy theme, my fireplace mantel is styled with a simple snowflake and warm lights.
I especially love to sit in my deconstructed chair next to my fireplace to relax this season.
Of course, you can see how I Christmas-fied my kitchen here.
One last little corner that I'm loving this season is my Plantation desk, filled my vintage favorites.
I made the cutest printable for my old typewriter.
So I played around with some of my favorite fonts and printed it off.
By all means, feel free to copy this idea!
Since this tree is particularly whimsical, I adorned the top of my Christmas Tree with a combo of poinsettia blooms, sparkly and snow covered sticks, and curly-q's.
And, of course, my snowflake topper.
Without a doubt - I love this fun garland! It's tinsel strap ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby. Not my normal garland, but I love how it curls down the tree whimsically.
I certainly hope you enjoyed my Cozy Christmas Family Room.
Not overdone or grandiose, but simple, welcoming... and just right!

Lastly, I wanted to take a moment and say a huge thank you to Jenna from Wife in Progress for putting together such an amazing and inspirational group. And especially for all her hard work gathering the details of this tour of homes.
I hope you enjoy the rest of these bloggers as much as I have this week! Next on the hop is Krista from Making It In the Mountains, so head over to see her beautiful home!
