Christmas Tour of our Home-Part 1

Hello sweet friends !

I've been looking at so many beautiful Christmas Home Tours, specially at "Marty's, A Stroll Thru Life." Anyway here is our Christmas home.

I mostly use my old things from so many years, that every year when I take them out of the storage boxes, they always seem so new and adorable to me and put a smile on my face with all the memories some carry of dear ones not here any more... 'every - single - year !'

That's it. I'm just sharing Part 1, the family room with our 'memory tree' and mantel. The living room and some vignettes here and there.

 Christmas is such a happy and colorful time of year, full with glitz and lights.

I always say that homes look colorless and gray when we dismantle our Holiday décor. In the meantime, let us enjoy the fun.

Hope you like it.


You're going to see a very traditional Christmas décor in our house; as I always loved the bright red, green and some glitz... starting from our vintage French foyer table.

Close up of the tree and mantel. The stockings are three this year, as we will have the three grandgirls with us, how exciting and blessed we are !!

The snowman one is our newest addition for baby Maxima 1 year old. Victoria 12 in the middle and Cayetana 9 with the blue Santa, she picked when she was 2.
I embroidered their names in each stocking and added some glitz to the old ones.
At your right, in the mantel is NYCity's "St. Patrick's Cathedral."

This is our family room where we spend "Christmas Eve and Day."
Next year I'm thinking to downsize into two smaller trees, one for here and the other in the dining room... yay!

I haven't changed much here for Christmas, except for the tray in the coffee table. The end tables have small decorations as well.

One hundred year old Chinese trunk that was my Mil's mother, Aejandro's grandma.

My Christmas tray with a German Santa and an Italian toy horse.

This is it for Part 1. The Christmas tree in the family room, living room and foyer.
Part 2 will be the Dining room, which is a big part of the house and my fav. Kitchen and entrance.

Thank you dear friends for your sweet comments, you always make my day !

  1. It is so pretty, Fabby, and, yes, very traditional. I have ALWAYS done traditional but this year did the blue/white/silver glitz. I like it but it is not as 'warm' feeling as traditional. LOVE that all three grandgirls will be there for Christmas. How very special for you! xo Diana

  2. Hola mi querida Fabby,

    Wow, my friend. What a gorgeous home and you have done an outstanding job decorating it all. The mantel is spectacular and the tree is just beautiful. I also love all the spectacular woodwork in your home. But that 100 year old Chinese chest has to be my favorite. What a treasure.

    Feliz Navidad para ti y tu hermosa familia.
