In my family room this year I put together green and gold decor in a theme I call Santa’s Stables. I used items in the green, gold, cream, brown, and white color families and used items you might find in Santa’s stables.
The Christmas Tree
I used green and gold ornaments on the tree as my base color palette. I also used pops of white throughout the tree to brighten it up a bit with my antlers, deer ornaments, and large magnolia florals.
Other items you will find in this tree are gold acorn ornaments, brown and black feather ball ornaments and glitter gold feather and leaf picks.
At the top I married long gold feathers with short flocked mistletoe and eucalyptus. I also popped in some brown with the feather picks and circled all of this decor around my large antler pick.
Throughout the tree you will see a few items that I used a focal points, such as sleighs filled with feather balls and bows I tied with ribbon from my Etsy shop. The bows turned out perfectly and “tie” the whole theme and color scheme together.
Green and Gold Mantel Decor
For the mantel, I kept the artwork that was hanging because it was gold and I decorated around it. I added my “secret garland.” Just kidding. It’s not a secret. I used teardrops for my garland and I’ll talk more specifically about how to do this in another post, so stay tuned! I used the same decor I used in the tree, but I did not include any ornaments or ribbon. I used two flocked trees on either side of the artwork for height. Since this was Santa’s stable room, I added two white deer and my owls to the trees. I think it’s definitely possible to find other critters, such as owls hanging out in the stables.
Creative Garland Decor
Now, brace yourself because what you are about to see may shock you. Ha ha! I created a giant nest for a giant owl on my giant windmill! Okay, I know not everyone has a giant windmill in their home. You might have something unique, though. I say decorate the most unique thing you have in your house and get creative with it. You can make anything out of garland! I’ll also do another post on how I did this specifically.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my green and gold Christmas decor in my family room! I love changing it up every year.
