I'll Have a Blue Christmas in 2020: Christmas Home Tour
Welcome to my Christmas home tour!! Did I predict my Christmas color scheme for 2020 would match the current pandemic situation when I decided to go with the color BLUE almost a year ago? Not one bit! The "blues" were a coincidence of course, but it's one that I don't take lightly. This year many people have the Christmas blues.
I have found that my current blue scheme reflects exactly how I feel about Christmas in 2020. There is still joy. Christmas will still come. Covid-19 can't stop the birth celebrations of Christ, but I definitely feel that blue subdued feeling. I feel heavy for all of the families that will spend Christmas alone or even watching loved ones get very sick or pass away. The Christmas blues have helped me reflect on the season in a new way, and I hope that as you look at the photos and see my Christmas home tour for 2020, that you'll feel that same sentiment.
My Christmas home tour is the biggest day of the year. I begin planning for Christmas the day it's over. Like, I'm already planning for next Christmas already!! My heart and soul goes into decorating the house top to bottom in celebration. Please enjoy and think about what Christmas truly means this year.

Here's a magical night time view:
Blue Christmas Home Tour Room 1: The Foyer
Since my accent wall is already blue (Very Navy by Behr), I didn't have to add much to the space.
I purchased the hydrangeas in the summer because I knew that they would fit perfectly on the front entry table.
The brown skis are from Home Hardware.
This realistic cedar garland is from Homesense. I bought three strands three years ago and haven't seen again them since. In fact, I think almost everything in this photo on the right came from Homesense, except Mr. Deer who came from Dollarama.
Even the bottle of hand sanitizer gets a pretty blue ribbon ;)
I spy my Shim Trees! Click here to see how I made them.
I printed out these chalk board look free printables as a cheap an easy way to create a focal point over the bench.
Stockings are from Canadian Tire. I painted my door black this past year and it looks so dramatic against the Christmas décor.
This wreath is also from Homesense.
Blue Christmas Home Tour Room 2: The Dining Room
The first thing your eyes go to are the awesome tartan curtains I made out of king sized coverlets. This is the pattern that convinced me last year that a blue Christmas was on the horizon for 2020.
Why hadn't I tried a droopy table cloth before this? I am HOOKED.
The next thing I bought for the table back in September were these beautiful blue goblets. Both the goblets and the dishes are from Stokes.
See how I made these DIY barn lights here.
The eucalyptus and candles are from Ikea.
I used blue Christmas lights under a bed of eucalyptus to adorn the center of the table.
