Victorian Christmas Home Tour

My aunt and uncle live in a beautiful old home on main street in our small town. Every year practically everyone we know gathers to watch the Christmas parade from their front yard.

AND they serve the best homemade stew to everyone!

This is small town living at it’s best and I love it!!

I thought I’d share some photos from their Victorian Christmas Home Tour.

Let’s start with the outside…

Victorian Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour

It has so many wonderful details…that porch railing alone is perfect!

My uncle Tommy works hard at keeping all of the leaves out of the yard.  As you can see with all of those huge trees, that is NO small task.

The back entrance to their home gets decorated as well. There is no spot untouched. My aunt has been decorating her home in early November for as long as I remember. She likes to go all out so she starts early.

Now into the Foyer for the big WOW!!

Yes, it really is that pretty!!

When they bought this house many years ago they took time to choose paint colors that would bring each room to life.

Tradition is big to them. Keeping the Christmas decorations for the tree is a big deal.

The painting on the easel is of their house one year when it snowed.  They also had it made into Christmas cards and every year you get it in the mail with a new family photo.  Our local High School and my daughters former running coach is also an artist and he drew it! (Way to go Coach Clark)

My aunt also puts a tree in the master bedroom. I love that small half wall tree.

The Family Room tree has been the same for years, exactly as I remember it. Every present always has a perfect bow on it.

My aunt Marsha is the queen of bow making! The gift wrap is the only thing she changes about her tree from year to year.

Victorian Classic Christmas Tree Decorations

This was my FAVORITE thing…the cotton wreath! It looks so good.

And everything in the picture from the buffet, the chair and the shutters are all DIY projects they’ve completed.

All of the red and turquoise continues into the kitchen with the coffee bar.  I love that cabinet curtain.

AND NOW….

LET’S HAVE A PARADE!!!

Victorian Christmas and Parade Christmas Party

Other than vintage cars and Santa, here is the main reason I love the parade…the marching band and my favorite drummer!

I hope you and your family are making memories and enjoying the season together.

  1. This is so cute and pleasant!!… It speaks so much of your uncle and aunt, just brings a smile to see the chrishmas tress, the home drawn picture that they send as post card, the items and decoration. I never seen a more charming kitchen cabinet with a curtain down and so much of the Christmas effect in the shelf. Nice… Its very nice that your aunt gives something nice for everyone to eat while they watch the parade. Everything is delightful and fresh out there, with generosity and love. These days people are not close with their distant families like parents, uncles and aunts and grandparents, but people like you really keep everyone together and by spreading happiness and cheer and positivity. Cheers to all good and nice things.

  2. I want your Aunt’s house. I am actually drooling while I read this. It is absolutely beautiful!

  3. Thanks for sharing! I used to live in a 100 yr old Victorian house. I loved the tour and I love even more the fact that everyone gathers there. 🙂

  4. What a wonderful tradition. You are blessed to have this family. Gorgeous home. Thanks for sharing.
