A Very Johnson Christmas

My Christmas decorating is officially complete and I'm pretty pleased with the way it's all come together! Wanna see?
This is one of my favorite things I did in my house. That lantern is always there but I added glass balls to make it festive and swapped out my blue hydrangeas for the poinsettia. It makes me happy!
Here's my mantel, again. I love my little stockings so much. Thanks Mom!!
I love that I have stairs that I get to decorate now! I saw some garland at the beginning of November at Sam's that I loved and planned on getting but they sold out of it before I could get my hands on it. I was so bummed. So I had to go to Hobby Lobby and get a bunch of stuff to make my own. Scott didn't believe me at first that I made it so I took that as a compliment. It kind of looks like a mess in this picture but I promise it looks really good in person. Haha! I'm really pleased with the way it turned out! It matches the garland I made for my mantle. 
I've had a few moments this week where I've cried really hard over my sweet Holly. Christmas will always remind me so much of her since she was a Christmas present for me and she LOVED opening Christmas presents so much. I decided I needed a little bit of holly in my house to honor my sweet baby so I hung holly ornaments from my chandelier in my dining room and put a bunch of holly berries in a vase for my centerpiece. It looks really pretty and hopefully I won't cry every time I look at it.
I did my Santa tree again this year. This is my 3 year to do it and I still really enjoy it. The girls have a Christmas house and they love getting in it, especially Ivy. 
I usually keep wine corks in that big glass vase and every Christmas I swap them out for glass balls. As you can probably tell, I love a bunch of glass balls in a clear vase. I think it looks so pretty and I'll probably do it for many, many years.
I love my coffee table this year! I took away the pink flower that's usually in the vase because it was really throwing off the whole Christmas look. The glittery pinecones look way better and of course, more glass balls!!!!! There's me in the super bright pink top. Hello!
So there's my house! I'm glad it's finished so I can sit back and enjoy it now.  
Merry Christmas everyone!
