Christmas at Coastal Charm

It's time for a Christmas Tour...I'm joining Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality and The Nester for all the fun...please be sure to go by all the tours...grab a cup of hot chocolate and get going...I know you will have an awesome time! While your here at Coastal Charm be sure to check out my other Christmas posts...and be sure to come back for more...I still have several trees to share with you!

Welcome...hope you have a FUN time here at COASTAL CHARM!

I'm lovin the bright colors that I used this year...I always like to surprise my family every year with a different look!

I covered a old bulletin board that I had with some green burlap to display some of our favorite Christmas pics...I always like to display our old pics and I never display them the same way!

This is our favorite "Santa" pic...our baby girl was not happy...oldest was like...what is wrong with her? I had made her a beautiful smocked dress that year smocking to be seen in this pic! I just had to share this with you...but I'm going to have one mad daughter when she sees this...well I will take her out to eat and to a movie next week when she comes home from college for the holidays...I LOVE YOU SWEETHEART!!!!

This is why we love the pic soooo much...the next year we went to a different location for her "Santa" pic...guess what? was the same "Santa"...she still wasn't happy! Best part still to come...the "Santa" whispered in my husbands ear...I remember your little girl from last "Santa" sees a lot of kids...but I guess you can't forgot the ones that make you go deaf!!!!

My candles that I covered with gift wrap...added some ornaments from one of my favorite little shops...The Dollar Tree!!!!

This is the first year for this little it last year at Target...50% off!!

I have had this little wreath for years and I'm still lovin it!

This is all for today...please keep checking back for more Christmas at COASTAL CHARM!!!!

All of your decorations are really pretty! I love the picture of your daughters on Santa's lap!!

The pic of your kids with Santa is great! I hope your youngest isn't mad at you, because this is awesome. It obviously shows that she knows what she likes, and in the case of Santa, what she doesn't like! I'm sure she is a strong young woman now.

Jane said...

There is so much to love here. First I love the bright greens and red that you used, it looks so festive!! I love all the vignettes you created and I LOVE the pictures of the girls with Santa!! The pictures are too cute and a great way to display them so that everyone can enjoy them. Hope your daughter won't be too upset with you! Great ideas!!

Your home looks happy and inviting. I love all the whimsical decor.

Sue said...

Linda, Your Christmas decor is so festive in traditional red/green. I love how you covered your candles with that cute wrapping paper. Great idea for some of my cheesier looking ones.... Thanks for the inspiration.
Your daughter's Santa pictures are priceless- but she's gonna kill you!! *grin* Thanks for visiting this morning.

Claudia said...

Linda, everything looks wonderfully cheery! Your colors are great. The photo of your daughters cracks me up...the youngest looks like she wants to squirm her way right out of Santa's lap!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love that wreath on your tree, Linda! I love your colorful decorations, too! I think many of us have a crying kid with Santa picture {I know I do!}.

Destiny said...

Everything looks so fun and festive! I'm LOVING the santa photo of your youngest girl squirming out of Santa's lap and crying ~ those are the BEST photos! My daughter is about to get her 3rd photo with Santa and I'm so anxious to see how she does this year. The first year she CRIED like crazy ~ last year she started to and my husband and I ended up being in the photo with her hahaha! Merry Christmas!!

I have one of a crying child too but it's no where as sweet as your photo. I love that! What a cherished memory. And I am loving all your bright colors for Christmas this year. :)

Cathryn said...

Those pics of your daughter are priceless! I love everything, but I think that the gift wrapped candles are my favorite. Before I got to the closeups of them, I wondered where you got the gorgeous polka dotted candles...I love them!

I love your colorful Christmas decor. But my favorite thing was the photo of your daughters with Santa. Brings back memories of last year. We took our grandson to see Santa for the 1st time & he screamed too. My hubby tried backing him in so he wouldn't see Santa so we could get a photo. But he turned & looked & screamed bloody murder. Too funny. So seeing your photo brought back a good memory for me. And thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment on my Christmas decor.

Cindy said...

Linda it all looks delicious! Love the bright greens and reds and whites....happy happy happy and festive :) Your mantle/fireplace is gorgeous!
