Take a Candlelight Tour of a Home with Elegant Christmas Decor

Enjoy a candlelit tour of a home filled with elegant Christmas decor ideas featuring neutral colors so the greenery takes center stage.

These past few months have been so full of ideas and inspiration for Christmas here on Simply2Moms.

The time has truly flown by.

I sure wish November and December would pass more slowly since they’re my favorite time of year!

Sometimes I have to take matters into my own hands to slow. things. down.

To reflect.

To enjoy the beauty of the season.

And to remember why I celebrate Christmas.

AnnMarie and I are going to press pause and do just that while we spend time with our families.

But before we do, we’ve got just a bit more inspiration for you.

Step inside our homes, lit by twinkle lights and candles.

We’ve joined some of our best blogging friends to share candlelight tours with you and you’ll find links to their tours at the end of this post.

If you’re visiting from our friend Melanie’s home down in Texas, welcome! Wasn’t her home lovely for Christmas? I love the meaning behind cardinals, especially during the holidays.

Today, I’m sharing my home (this is Anne), and tomorrow you’re invited to visit AnnMarie’s.

So grab a cup of your favorite Christmas beverage and may the words of one of my favorite Christmas hymns fill your heart with joy.
