Holiday Open House – Christy’s Home at 11 Magnolia Lane (Part 1)

Nutcracker Ballet Christmas Decor | 11 Magnolia Lane

It’s almost Christmas, and I am the very. last. stop on our Holiday Home Tour.  I am banking on the fact that you all are too busy to even peek at my house because I’m not sure I am in the same league with all of the talented bloggers who have filled the month of December for us! (see at the end of this post for links to every one of our amazing participants)

Even though I had good intentions, last year’s home tour {see it here} didn’t include my children’s rooms, and so I thought I would be a little non-traditional and start with their rooms this year.  They’re so fun to decorate!

First, my daughter’s room.  She loves ballet and spends 15-20 hours dancing every single week.  So, of course, we have a lot of Nutcracker and ballet decor in the room!

The ballet barre is one that I built for under $20 (the tutorial is here).  The framed posters are performances she’s been in, and the programs are from some of the ballets that we’ve attended together.  We decorate with pointe shoes because she has so many “dead” pairs–she goes through about a pair a month!

 Her room is crazy big (bigger than our master!) in this house, which is why we have room for a 4′ ballet barre.  She also has a sitting area–I kid you not–with the thrift store loveseat that I reupholstered for her and another little chair that I slipcovered.  It is the Charlie Brown Christmas tree of slipcovers and I will never write a tutorial on how to sew one!
