Christmas Around the Digs

This year I was itching to decorate for Christmas! Last year we were wrapping up the garage addition and a lot of our spaces were unfinished and/or in flux. I used a lot of what we already had but added to it. I’m happy to report the Christmas spirit is in full swing in the Daly Digs.


On our porch, I swapped our lavender faux plants for green cedar bushes and added a small Norfolk pine faux tree, a green buffalo check rug, a wire basket with firewood, and door swags.

Inside, in the front entryway, I used two door swags to create a greenery arch at the top of the mirror. I used command hooks on the side to hold the swags, added some faux eucalyptus stems for texture, and a ribbon bow. On the coat rack, I swapped my garden hat for a winter hat and scarf and added a Christmas throw pillow to the bench.

In the mudroom, I added a garland to the opening into the house. I used a pine cone garland from Hobby Lobby with twinkle lights woven through. On the side table, I replaced my typical stems with Christmas stems and added some large jingle bells to the scalloped bowl.

Living Room

The 12′ Christmas tree is the focal point of the living room. I shared my block-print-inspired Christmas tree in detail in this post. On the mantel, I laid an asymmetrical garland with ribbon and brass bells and nestled a grouping of mercury glass Christmas trees in the garland. On the coffee table, I used reindeer sculptures, pinecone candles, a bottle brush tree, and the best-ever Christmas candle.

On the built-in shelves, I used what I had, most of which is older and no longer available. Mostly it’s a mix of bottle brush trees, assorted black and white houses, and a few light-up decorative objects.

I am so excited to start a Christmas village collection this year! I saw a beautiful village last year and haven’t stopped thinking about it. I did my research and fell in love with Department 56 Dickens’ Village. I got the wine and spirits shop, and the tea shoppe, and my friend gifted me the church for balance lol. I can’t wait to add to it every year.


The open shelves in our kitchen are one of my favorite styling opportunities in the house and I always love to add some Christmas flare to them. This year I kept it simple and used several of these resin trees in various sizes, some shimmer garland, bottle brush tree and a mini tabletop tree.

Shiloh’s Room

We went for it and gave Shiloh a big tree in her room this year. We used a lot of the ornaments from her mini tree we did in the playroom last year, but added a few things. This is her favorite ornament and this is mine. (Also, the mushroom garland is adorable). It adds such magic to her room and we’re in love. In addition to her tree, I did a colorful village on her bookshelf. When I stumbled across these houses at Target for $5, I grabbed one of each. (I can’t find the Target link but these are similar.) Some cute art, pink and orange bottle brush trees, and fabric bird figurines top it off and it turned out so cute!

There ya have it, Christmas around the Digs 2023 edition! We decorated well before Thanksgiving and I’ve enjoyed the Christmas magic around the house. What is your favorite part?
