I’m so excited to share our holiday home tour with you all! We’re featuring it over on The Everygirl as well if you want to read the full interview on the inspiration behind everything! It is the most beautiful time of the year to us as believers, and my hubby and I really got into decorating this year as it’s our first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. Our Faith is very important and prominent in our lives, which you might have gathered through reading my blog or following me on social, and so a lot of our decor has a lot of significance and reflects what this season really means to us…
We went for a monochromatic, minimalist approach to our decor this year to fit with our modern condo vibe. I love that it is festive, but our place still feels open and bright. Our tree is faux, I always grew up with real ones, but alas in a condo this was more tidy and convenient! We got our flocked tree from Canadian Tire last year on sale, as well as our rustic Christmas star for the topper.

MATTHEW 2: 9 They went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.Â 10Â When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.Â 11Â On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him.Â Then they opened their treasures and presented him with giftsÂ of gold, frankincense and myrrh.Â

The Birth of Jesus
2Â In those days Caesar AugustusÂ issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.Â 2Â (This was the first census that took place while[a]Quirinius was governor of Syria.)Â 3Â And everyone went to their own town to register.
4Â So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to BethlehemÂ the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.Â 5Â He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to himÂ and was expecting a child.Â 6Â While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,Â 7Â and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
8Â And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.Â 9Â An angelÂ of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.Â 10Â But the angel said to them, â€œDo not be afraid.Â I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.11Â Today in the town of David a SaviorÂ has been born to you; he is the Messiah,Â the Lord.Â 12Â This will be a signÂ to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.â€
13Â Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14Â â€œGlory to God in the highest heaven,
Â Â Â Â and on earth peaceÂ to those on whom his favor rests.â€
15Â When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, â€œLetâ€™s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.â€
16Â So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.Â 17Â When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,Â 18Â and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.Â 19Â But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.Â 20Â The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising GodÂ for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
21Â On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child,Â he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.
