Thorndale Christmas Home Tour


Good afternoon, everyone! As many of you know, a couple of weeks ago, my mother and I participated in the Thorndale Christmas Home Tour. This is our second year being a part of this wonderful event. This event is put on to raise money for the public school in Thorndale, which is a small community that is close to our store. We are so honored to be a part of this fabulous event and we had just as much fun this year as we did the last. I didn’t have the blog last year, so this time, I took the opportunity to get a ton of pictures so that I could share them with you all!

On the tour were 5 homes and one local business that were decorated by local business that donate their time and resources. My mother and I were chosen because of the small boutique that we have in Thamesford, Gracie’s Place. This year, we filled the home with a healthy mix of decor items from the store and DIYs. I will be rolling out tutorials for the DIYs so that you can do them, too!

Let’s get into the good stuff β€” the pics! A big thank you to Donna Davis Kasubeck for taking the photographs.

This is the home we were chosen to decorate.Β _DSC5075.JPGCan I just say… I never wanted to leave this gorgeous home. Total house goals.

Let’s start with the front porch and we will work our way in πŸ™‚_dsc5039_DSC5041.JPGThis box is my absolute favorite! I had them constructed by a local carpenter, who also happens to be a friend and I cut the “Merry Christmas” out of vinyl with my Cricut cutting machine. We simply tossed in some greens and some birch logs. Perfectly rustic!Β _DSC5045a1.JPGA rustic grapevine deer from the store. Love this guy!

My mom had these fun snowmen heads that we put in the urns.Β _dsc5052aHere are the urns.Β _dsc5055aOh, those giant candy canes, you ask? Those are dollar store plastic candy canes spruced up with a bit of burlap and ribbon. Easy peasy, and totally makes them look less dollar store.Β 15631305_10154872320344851_1050456073_o_DSC5060a.JPG_DSC5068.JPGI fell in love with the porch!Β _DSC5073aa.JPGRather than go with a tradition wreath, we hung up this little guy._DSC5079aa.JPGWindow boxes designed by my mother.Β _DSC5086.JPG_DSC5092.JPG_DSC5120.JPG_DSC5129.JPG

Alright, let’s head inside!Β _DSC5200.JPG_DSC5211.JPG_dsc5222a_DSC5240a.JPGI made a bunch of these little snowglobe jars and will be doing up a tutorial real soon! These are so fun to make and easy, too!

Here are some others


The homeowner had a gorgeous coffee table, but it was huge… no, not huge β€”enormous!_dsc5294_dsc5296I want one, though. Love it!

I know I have said a lot of things were my favorite, but the tree actually was my ABSOLUTE favorite!_DSC5297a.JPGP1010966.JPGOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA_DSC5267a.JPG_DSC5270a.JPGOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA rustic sign that I made._dsc5275a
