My Woodsy Christmas Den Decor

Hi All!  Long time no see huh?  I'm sure most of you don't need me to explain how hectic things are this time of year so I will skip all the chit chat and just show you a little of what I have been able to get decorated for the holidays so far.  Okay?

Okay!!! The den is done!  Whew!  It's pretty much the same as last years theme, only I added and omitted just a few things.

For example, I went with a natural looking topper this year by adding bunch's of willow to the bow and berry's.   I think I will eventually put my copper star trio back up too if I can do so without destroying what is already there.  LOL!

I actually left off several ornaments this year if you can believe that.  The newest two additions were the deco mesh which I cut in strips across and tied on in knots for a more rustic look.  Then, the addition that I like the most is the willow garland.  Why haven't I thought of this sooner?  I love it!

On the mantle it's very similar to last years set up again but with new garland.  I bought two on sale from Michael's this year.  One is strictly greenery with a snowy looking cedar and pine and the other has the berries and pine cones with greenery. I also added a few branches of willow here too.
My pine cone candles came out again.  Of course, I just had to add a little bling bling as well with the beaded candlesticks.  

Do you remember the reindeer I purchased last year from work?

I just love these guys!  They are why I have stayed with this very woodsy theme.

The lantern on the table moved across the room to new location for the holidays and received a woodsy look as well.

Hello Mr. Claus!

Can you tell I went a little crazy adding the willow everywhere?  I love it! 

I also love the view from my favorite chair where I use my laptop in the evenings or daytime depending on when I am home.  

Last but now least, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, in hopes....

Speaking of hoping, I surely do hope you enjoyed this little peek at my holiday decor in the den again this year. 

If you liked that be sure and come back tomorrow okay because I'll be showing you the kitchen next. The holidays are my favorite time of the year for pulling out all the decorations.  It's when I have the most to share.  I've gotten so many ideas from most of you and am truly grateful for that.  Thanks so much!

And thank you so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate hearing from you.
Have a great day everyone!


  1. its beautiful Mary. I love the woodland look.

  2. Everything looks so nice, Mary! I like the woodland look. All I have done is the front porch. Hoping to work on the mantel tonight after exercise, grocery store and dinner! We'll see what happens!

  3. Oh I just adore it all, it is wonderful. I love all the willow too. Putting the Santa in the lantern is sheer genius. The deer are fabulous, what a beautiful statement they make on the mantel. Everything is really beautiful. You need to link this up to Table Top Tuesday this afternoon. Stunning. Hugs, Marty

  4. Mary, you have really knocked yourself out! This just looks wonderful! Now, I need to go do mine!



  5. Mary- It looks so nice. I love your Santa in the lantern and I also love the willow "everywhere". Blessings- xo Diana

  6. Hi Mary, you sure have got a lot done with working the way you do! I love the willow branches it does make it look woodsey:)

  7. Hi Mary, I sure GET about decorating taking SO much time. I love what you have done in the den. Can't wait to see the kitchen too!!! I love all your willow, glad you liked my deer head:) I really love that BIG lantern. I saw some at Home Goods months ago and wish I had gotten one. XO, Pinky

  8. I thought about you yesterday as I FINALLY found something to wear at the husband's company dinner at Stein Mart. I know fully well what you mean about being busy, and I'm not even working this year. (Which makes me busy trying to figure out how to afford Christmas... sigh.)

    I love your den the other 12 months of the year so why wouldn't I love the woodsy Christmas den too? It all looks wonderful. Now, to scroll up and see the kitchen. Nothing like being busy and behind.
