It’s official. I’m that ‘tree is up before Thanksgiving’ person and I have no regrets! This year, I want to welcome you into my home for the holidays – virtually, of course! Welcome to the Murphy’s 2021 Holiday Home Tour!

When you walk through our door, you can smell cinnamon rolls and the fresh scent of pine (definitely from a candle!), there are probably kid toys laying around and dishes to be done, but it is all so worth it because it means our home is well-loved. As much as I love decorating for the holidays and giving gifts, none of it matters as much as spending time together as a family.

Like a lot of families, we spend most of our time in the kitchen and living room, so that is where I keep most of our holiday decor! In this season of life, less is more, and maybe as the years go on we will have mini trees and lights to decorate our boys’ bedrooms.

I love having seasonal greenery and adding in pops of red, it feels much more traditional and homey. Now that we have two kids and a shedding dog, I also like to freshen up our seating areas with new pillows each season! Also this year we added wreaths above our windows in the kitchen which is a small touch that makes a big difference.

Having beautiful decorations and items in your home is amazing, but it is not as much about how it looks, but how it makes you feel. However you choose to decorate your home and celebrate the holidays with loved ones, I hope we can all remember the core of what the holidays are truly about.
