Red and White Christmas Decorations

Nothing says Christmas more than the traditional red and white Christmas decorations. Here is how we styled our living room this holiday season.

Merry Christmas!

If you are coming from a Quarters One, or if you’re new here, a special welcome and hello to you! So nice to have you stop by.

I’m Jen, a musician turned momma who loves to renew our home without breaking the bank! 😉 You can read more about me here.

I’d like to give a huge thank you to Marty from A Stroll Thru Life for organizing yet another incredible Christmas tour of homes to inspire you.

Red and White Christmas Decorations

(Some affiliate links are provided below. Full disclosure here.)

I’ve been busy working on decorating our house for Christmas and have already revealed our Moody Christmas tree in our newly renovated basement last week.

I stepped away from a traditional color palette in our family room with a bit of a modern feel.

And it works perfectly for this room, but I am missing those red and white Christmas decorations that always get me in the Christmas spirit.

So I knew I wanted to create the classic color combination for our living room space this holiday season.

I’ve mentioned before about my obsession with Christmas tree placement. Whenever we have moved and have shopped houses, the one question that I ask again and again is ‘where do I put the tree?’

So in this room, this one corner truly is the only space, which doesn’t give us a lot of room for a big tree.

And the corner gives the best view of the tree when sitting in front of the fireplace.

So I set up an old tree that we’ve used many times in previous years.

It’s a slim tree that works perfectly in this corner.

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to decorate your own tree, then re-use old decor year after year. The past couple of years, I have slowly added to our red decorations.

Last year, I decorated our white Christmas tree in our sunroom with red ornaments and a festive red knit ribbon, so I was able to reuse those again this season.

And see those fuzzy ornaments? Those are some fun yarn holiday decorations that I made last year.

Next, I added some white ornaments and small touches of white ribbon here and there.

I want the tree to look festive and fun, so I added sparkly holiday picks to use as the tree topper.

I always hit the after Christmas sales and stock of up wrapping paper. And I like to stick with a simple pattern and color scheme and add fun red ribbon to the gift wrap.

These gift boxes are just wrapped for this photo shoot. I’m late to the game with shopping so you’ll notice there aren’t any a gift tag on the presents yet.

For the rest of the decoration for this room, I kept with the same theme.

I wanted a classic Christmas feel for my mantel decor. A simple, green garland rests on top of our mantel.

I added some berries to the greenery to tie in the bright red stockings.

This cute wood and white tree is actually a serving board from Mud Pie.

My mother in law gave it to me for my birthday and I thought it looked perfect on my mantel.

One of my favorite things to do each Christmas season is find ways to reuse decor that was purchased in previous years, like these Christmas Stockings.

These fur cuffed stockings were new to us last year and I love the pop of color it gives to our newly updated fireplace.

This fun tin Santa sits on the other side of the mantel with this cute vase from Target.

The rest of the room got a few holiday touches as well.

Our DIY TV cabinet was topped with some faux greenery.

A collection of green and red books sit under the TV cabinet with an old, tin snowman I’ve had for many many years.

Our sofa got some fun new pillows from Walmart.

I love this winter scene throw pillow!

And last week, I shared how I updated an old nativity scene that my boys used to play with.

It’s amazing what a few red ribbons can do for a simple wreath.

And this will be the first time we can use our new gas fireplace logs during the season!

I can’t wait – it will be the perfect cozy atmosphere!

  1. I love your pretty white tree in the basement, but my favorite is the gorgeous red and white you are using in your living room. Those plaid stockings and all the pretty red accents just speak Christmas to me. Such a pretty and inviting room. Thanks so much for joining the tour again this season, your home is always a favorite and filled with tons of inspiration.

  2. Hi Jen! What a lovely home! The red and white tree is stunning. I love how cheerful your home is for Christmas. The little nativity is precious. Happy to join the tour this year. Merry Christmas! Blessings, Lori.

  3. I adore your Christmas decor! All that fabulous red stands out against your neutrals and makes it all so festive! I love the red ribbon on the tree too – so cozy and fun! Great tour!

  4. This looks like the happiest and most lovely place to sit, relax and enjoy the season! No one would have to holler for me. I’d be right there in the chair gazing at all the red, white and fun plaid. Loved it all! So glad we could hop together again. This is truly beautiful. Merry Christmas!

  5. Your traditional red is so festive Jen!!
    And wow, that knit Christmas tree garland is just beyond cute.
    The whole house vibe is so happy & joyful.

    Merry Holidays to you!! ~ Shannon

  6. Your home looks beautiful decked out for Christmas! We have to get a ‘new’ tree every year because we use real trees but other than that, I usually add to my ornaments every year too instead of buying all new. I think I love your moody Christmas tree the best, it looks absolutely stunning! Merry Christmas!
