Welcome to the Holiday Home Tour 2015! If you are new to our blog or a frequent reader, we are so excited to have you here. Also, if you are coming over from Up to Date Interiors, welcome to you too. My name is Emily and I blog here at Elizabeth Joan Designs with my sister, Erin. Today, I’m sharing my a tour of my home decorated for the holidays. (Check out Erin’s My Home Style Blog Hop: Christmas Tree Edition coming up next week.)
Are you recovering from Thanksgiving okay? I have been so bombarded with sickness over the past month, I can’t wait to start feeling better. Soon, I hope. Well, come on in and see our simple holiday decor for the year.
I recently shared an entryway update, but now I get to show it off all decked-out for the winter season.
The Polar Express is one of our family’s all time favorite Christmas books.
Wreaths are so beautiful and simple, I knew this year I had to have mini ones displayed on our kitchen
cabinets. I love the contrast of the green wreaths on the white cabinets.
Here in western New York we see a lot of snow. My attitude is if you can beat ’em, join ’em, hence the snowflakes on our kitchen window.
Oh, my pride and joy: our buffet table
. This is one of my favorite spots in the whole house. A few neutral touches brings this area up to speed with the rest of our holiday decor.
Who decorates their bathroom
for Christmas? I do, and proud of it. Just because it is the smallest room in the house doesn’t mean it can’t join in the festivities.
We are introducing a new to us family tradition this holiday season. Ever heard of the Christmas Pickle? You can read all about it on Wikipedia
Just like I shared in last years holiday home tour
, we put up our Advent calendar
again. Let the count down begin!
That’s all I have for you this home tour. Hopefully I will be feeling better soon so we can get our living room decorated before the holidays come and go. Have you started decorating yet?
Your next stop is Pretty Practical Home. Become inspired by hopping around and take a look at all of these amazing home tours happening all week!

Thanks Sara! The wreaths are my favorite! Glad you stopped by!
Love the entry way and the ice skates. A great way to be welcomed in your home. Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas, Tiffany! Thanks for your kind words!
The kitchen and entry look very festive, Emily! I love the wreaths against the white cabinets, too. I’ll have to hunt some of those down for next year. I can see why you love your pegboard and table–it’s very pretty! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home.
Thanks Sharon! The wreaths are actually garland I purchased at the dollar store and turned it into small wreaths. I made 3 wreaths per garland strand. Thanks so much for organizing all of this!
