I love decorating for Christmas, especially in our living room. If you are like me, you have bins of Christmas decor and every year you say, “I need to organize these bins!” This year, I decided to pull all of the red ornaments aside and create a red themed Christmas tree.

Every year I purchase new Christmas ornaments and decor based on whatever theme seems to inspire me. Mixing and matching old and new ornaments is a great way to achieve a “new” look each year without breaking the bank.

I hit the jackpot for red and black plaid ornaments at HomeGoods along with a few gorgeous Italian hand blown glass ornaments.

Our flocked Christmas tree is 6 years old and I think it still looks amazing. I love how the oversized red ball ornaments help fill in the gaps near the center of the tree.

When decorating a Christmas tree, I find it easier to work from the inside of the tree outwards.

If you start with the larger ornaments at the base of the tree, gaps will be filled and the smaller ornaments help create a layered look at the end of the limbs.

The red cardinals are a couple years old and coordinated perfectly with the red and black plaid ornaments I picked up at HomeGoods.


If you have followed me for a while, you know that we removed our old granite mantel a couple years ago and had this custom wood rustic beam added.

The mantel is my favorite part of the living room and the mirror was a huge score from HomeGoods. It’s beautiful on its own but always a great backdrop for a seasonal wreath.

I picked up a few new garland pieces for the mantel and added small pinecones. I was so excited when I found the white stone topped stocking hangers. I love how the white and gold looks against the wood beam.

Red fluffy pillows paired with plaid pillows help tie in the red theme. I think I bought 5 throw pillows with a red vintage truck…. I love them!

I am so excited for Christmas this year and love how our red Christmas living room turned out.  All of the ornaments, throw pillows, throw, accent chair,  mantel decor, hearth decor, mantel mirror, cranberry wreath and coffee table candle wreath ring are from HomeGoods.
