Well, it’s the fifth and final day of the Christmas Home Tour! I honestly have had more fun on this series than anything else I’ve done here on the blog! I’m so sad to see it end, but I’m thrilled with HOW it’s ending today!
Here are ALL the links from the tours this week:

Just a little overview for any new readers: I wanted to do a week of Christmas home tours here on the blog, so I’ve hand-selected five ladies who have invited me into their homes to view their Christmas decor. And I’m sharing it with all of you!
And to finish out our week…are you ready?
Mallory’s Home – A Very Shabby Christmas
Mallory has been decorating in the Shabby Chic style since before it was a designer craze! Most of her home is decorated in Shabby fashion, and her Christmas decor is no exception.
Mallory starts outside her home when it comes to decorating for Christmas! Although I visited during the day, and wasn’t able to see the full affect of the outdoor lights, all the little details were gorgeous in the daylight!
Let’s take a peek inside, shall we?
I love all the different elements she’s used in her entryway!
Just to the right of the entryway is her formal dining room:
Check out that centerpiece!
Mallory’s 3-year-old daughter helped her pick out the sticks and hang the festive balls and bells on each one. With a sheer, fluffy runner and a few more intricate details, it all comes together beautifully!
The mantle is brightened up, too…
…and the beautiful china hutch is decked out!
LOVE this teapot!
Next is one of Mallory’s favorite pieces in her entire home.
Goodness, the possibilities are ENDLESS with that door!!!
Moving on to the kitchen…
The scale is another of Mallory’s favorite pieces!
And can you tell that she loves cupcakes?!
A few more special details in the kitchen…
Isn’t that little hot cocoa station the cutest? I don’t know how she keeps it so neat like that – we’d be drinking hot chocolate ALL THE TIME at my house!
A fun little jingle bell tree sits atop the bar…
…and the kitchen’s eating area is decorated, too!
I really like the little utensils hanging on this tree!
Since Mallory has two little ones, the manger scene is kid-friendly!
And the fireplace is a beautiful reminder of friends and family.
The tree is a family tree, filled with keepsake ornaments!
(Did you spot the Elf on the Shelf? The elf at this home is named Bobby!)
This is Mallory’s favorite ornament…
…and this is her hubby’s favorite!
The wheelbarrow filled with Christmas books at the base of the tree is a fun and perfect touch!
I also LOVE how she decorated the top of her console table…
…and the fun little details she has scattered around the house, like this sign that hangs on the bathroom door:
“When people come into our home, I want them to just want to curl up on the couch and stay for a while,” Mallory commented. I think she achieved her goal, don’t you? And can you believe she did ALL of this Christmas decor in ONE DAY?! Superwoman!!!
Thanks so much for having us in your home, Mallory! She has such a talent for putting all the details together, doesn’t she?
Well, folks, that’s the end of this year’s Christmas Home Tour! I hope all of you enjoyed what you’ve seen, and I hope you’re inspired to do some neat things with your Christmas decor this year, as well! Again, many thanks to Tammy, Krysta, Tania, Kitty and Mallory for allowing me to come into their homes, take tons of pics and share them with all of you! You ladies are amazing, and now everyone knows it!!!
