If you have been following me for long, then you know that I am obsessed with Christmas and the whole holiday season. It is such a festive time of year and one that brings family and friends together which makes it the most blessed season! Today, I am excited to bring you into a few places in our home on the main floor to show you my Pine Cone Themed Christmas Home Tour. Our top floor is under major construction so I will be able to show you more of that next year.

Pine Cone Themed Christmas Home Tour – Main Living Room
Regretfully, this post is coming out about two weeks later than I planned. Between our basement flood on Thanksgiving night and with Thanksgiving being so late this year, I have gotten behind. Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine because I have a lot to share.
I am most excited to show you our main living room. This is the first time I have had a tree in this room because the furniture placement did not allow it. So, this year, I decided to move the buffet (that sat where the tree is now) into our breakfast area. My daughter, especially, was so delighted to see it. I surprised her! 🙂
This new tree is also our first flocked tree and I am thrilled with it. Considering my plans to use a lot of fresh winter greenery, I decided to use emerald green as the accent color in this space. You can see more of the details of our Flocked Green and White Pine Cone Themed Christmas Tree HERE.
When we gutted this room after we bought the house, I wanted a sleek and simple fireplace to be the focal point. I opted not to have a mantel. Because of that, I typically decorate my coffee tables like I would as if it was on a mantel.
Additionally, since we do not have a mantel in here, I like to add fresh greenery to the leaner mirror in this room to balance the impact of the tree.
This sweet little vignette is very special to me. The antique curio cabinet belonged to my grandmother and the gold little brass box belonged to my other grandmother and her mother! To ready it for Christmas, I simply draped some exotic winter greenery from California and it is just right.
My Pine Cone Themed Christmas Home Tour – Dining Room
Now, onto the dining room…a space we entertain in all through the season. In this room, I started with the buffet as it provides a large surface to decorate like a mantel. Since the parties we are hosting are larger, I set up the buffet on our 16-foot island in our kitchen, so I don’t really need to count on this surface to use for serving.

For the dining table, I decided to coordinate with the buffet and the rest of the decor in this room. Green and Gold was an obvious fit.
I made sure to incorporate pine cones in our centerpieces but in a bit more elegant way. Spray painting them gold did the trick. Sometimes, tending to those small details can make such a difference.
Due to all that is going on with the buffet, I kept the place settings very simple. I also made that decision so that the flowers could be the center of the show, so to speak.

Because we spend so much time in dining room during this season entertaining, I always feature a tree in this room that coordinates with the rest of the room. This year, I created a slimmer tree and placed it across the room from the buffet for balance purposes. Using mixed metals helped create a lovely neutral look!

My Pine Cone Themed Christmas Home Tour – Breakfast Areas
For these two areas in our home, I went a bit more casual since the areas lend themselves to that. I used almost all of the same elements on each table but mixed them up just a tad.
I created a coordinating vignette on the buffet similar to the dining room but simplified it quite a bit.
Moving over to our third eating area, the main thing I changed was eliminating the plaid napkins because of the size of the table. Otherwise, it is coordinated with the other two tables. The three elements that tie all three tables together are the green organza napkins, natural cedar greenery, and pine cones.

The one element that I added to my dinnerware collection this year for these table settings is these Lenox Chelse Muse Scallop Dinner Plates in White. I am so crazy about them and LOVE how they compliment my Lenox Alpine Collection Accent Plates. Here is a look at the whole set…
Thank you so much for stopping by our Pine Cone Themed Christmas Home Tour. I did not include our basement this year as it has some areas in it under construction as well. Besides, it is our “kids” area, so it is usually pretty disheveled! It includes a large living area, a full kitchen and bathroom, and a large theater. I will work on sharing more of it later this year. As we get closer to Christmas, I hope and pray that you have glorious times with your friends and family as we celebrate the birth of Lord and Savior. Merry Christmas, my friends!
