Yourstrulyjenn Perfectly Plaid House Tour

I’m so excited to participate in Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday House walk party again this year. If you haven’t seen the amazing line up of homes on this tour, you need to go to day one and check them out at the link above.

It’s my favorite time of year and one of my favorite posts to prepare.  I think I have pulled the best of my holiday pictures to create this house tour for you.  If you are new to my blog, welcome!  I hope you enjoy what you see and will stick around for some other holiday posts.

holiday house walk party

Perfectly plaid tree

This was my favorite tree to decorate.  In the past, I have done this tree in traditional red and green.  I already had the red ornaments, but wanted to do something different this year.  At the end of last year, I started collecting black ornaments knowing I was going to try something a little different.

Birch wood

The rest of the idea for this tree came when I found this plaid box and the buffalo check pillow.  Then I had my theme for the holidays.  I knew I was going to do this tree in red, black and plaid.  I love how the bottom of the tree looks as well.

Two tiered tray

This two tired tray from Painted Fox is one of my favorite things to decorate each season.  I leave a couple things in it all the time and then change out the seasonal items.  The mercury glass candles and buffalo check appetizer plate came from the dollar spot at Target.

one kings lane plates

These plaid salad plates came from One Kings Lane. I knew as soon as I saw them they were perfect for the look I was going for.

Gold centerpiece

I love how this red striped ribbon pulls in the table setting with the Christmas tree.  It’s amazing what a good wired ribbon can do for your decorating.

Cupi & white tree

Someone hopped in to smell Santa’s cookies and milk.  It made the cutest candid shot near my white tree.

white tree with cookies

This tree is done in all white and clear ornaments.  The ribbon is the only thing that is silver.  I felt it needed a little something so I added the silver this year and I really like it.

Plaid centerpiece

My Mother-in-law gave me this centerpiece years ago and I have always loved it.  I just spruced it up with a plaid ribbon this year so it would match my theme.

williams sonoma plaid plates

The plaid table runner and plates came from Williams Sonoma.  The polka dot napkins came from Pottery barn.

glam deer table

I decided to do my table two different ways this year just to give you two totally different looks.  This one is more glam and glitz.

red rose table

I put a gold snowflake on everyone’s plate,  It was definitely missing something until I added this little detail.

lenox dishes table setting

The gold deer from Target go beautifully with my gold rimmed glasses and Lenox china.

coffee station vignette

Everyone needs a little Christmas in their kitchen.  This coffee station matches my theme with  mercury glass and a hint of plaid.

mirrored chest vignette

I love all the frosted white and green in this vignette.  I didn’t really know what I was going to do here at first.  I just started and it came together somehow.  I love using cranberries.  They are so easy and inexpensive to decorate with.

metallics and packages

Decorating with metallics was trending this year.  This was the last place I decorated and it was one of my favorite looks.  Remember, you don’t have to always use red and green in your Christmas look.

black, white and metallics

I had so much fun showing you around my home. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.  Please come back and read other holiday posts.  You can see part 1 of my holiday home tour here.  This is my favorite time of year and I have lots to share with you. If you like holiday decor and inspiration, you are in the right place. If you haven’t seen the bloggers on Jennifer’s holiday house walk you must go look at that now. Thanks again for stopping by.

Yours Truly,

Jenn

      Jenn,
      Thanks so much. I was sure mad about plaid this season, but I’m glad you liked it. The stores were covered in plaid so it was easy to find. Thanks for checking out the post.

      Theresa,
      Thanks so much for your kind words. I loved doing this table setting. I had the glasses already as they matched my Lenox China pattern, but I splurged this year on the plaid plates from Williams Sonoma. I’m so glad you liked it. Check back on Wed for the second part of my tour and there will be a couple more pictures that were not posted yet.

      Thanks so much. I’m heading into a busy week with my kid’s schedules and I’m not finished shopping so your kind words just made my day. I’m glad you liked the plaid. I had such fun putting everything together this year. Have an amazing holiday with your friends and family!

      Diana,
      Thanks so much for your kind words. I really enjoy Christmas decorating. It is my favorite time of year. Right now though I’m a little over this winter weather in VA and ready for some spring like temps. Take care.

      Thanks so much Patty. I absolutely loved that tree and the plaid theme I used last year. I’m already planning for this year and I’m using blush and rose gold. Don’t know if I will like it as much as last year, but I’m excited about it. Come back in early December for holiday home tours!!!
