Christy’s Holiday Home Tour 2016

Nutcracker Ballet themed Christmas decor | 11 Magnolia Lane
Hey, friends!  Welcome to my favorite month of the year, and another inspiring day of 12 Days of Holiday Homes.  I’m up today (no pressure here!), and you also get to see our friend Brenna’s amazing home over at Domestic Charm.


Many thanks, too, to Lynch Creek Farm, for sponsoring our series!   You can see the gorgeous wreath they sent me at the end of the post.

Today, I’m sharing my current favorite room in our house–my daughter’s.  She loves to dance and spends hours every week at the amazing ballet studio she attends, so at Christmas we decorate her room in a Nutcracker ballet theme.

For years her room was pink; the walls may be aqua now (Sherwin-Williams Sea Salt), but there’s still lots of pink around!

The tree is decked out with all of her ballet and Land of the Sweets ornaments,

and we build a pile of old pointe shoes at the bottom–we have tons of them!

Here’s my dancer–five performances down and ten to go:

Annabelle Nutcracker Snow

Her collection of ballerina ornaments is from various performances we’ve attended together over the years.

I love her room when it’s lit only by the garland the lights on the tree.
