The moment I shared Erin’s home, from @MyTexasHouse, on our series “Beautiful Homes of Instagram”, it not only became the most popular post on Home Bunch but it also became one of the most pinned homes on Pinterest. Both Erin and I could never have imagined this much success and we often mention this with so much gratitude to you, my wonderful readers, who made this happen by sharing this with your followers and family and friends.
To show our gratitude and appreciation we’ve decided to share her home completely decorated for Christmas. Here, Erin tells us more about what Christmas means in her household:
“I’m so thrilled and honored to share with the readers of Home Bunch a look inside my home at Christmas time!! This is my family’s first Christmas in our new home. We can’t wait to make new Christmas memories here, while keeping alive the special family traditions that we hold dear.
When I started thinking about decorating my home for Christmas, I turned to Instagram and Pinterest for ideas. I was really drawn to pictures of homes with pops of red in their Christmas decor, so I decided to go with that idea. My house is normally so neutral with very little color, and I thought it might be fun to add a splash of color for the holiday season!
My beautiful new 10 foot flocked Christmas tree from King of Christmas is the definitely the center piece of all my Christmas decorating. I’ve always wanted a flocked tree and this one is so gorgeous and realistic looking. After deciding that I would decorate my tree in a traditional style, with red and white balls, snow flake and shiny ornaments, I decided to add some black and white striped ribbon to add a little modern twist.
Beautiful Homes of Instagram: Christmas Special
Outside, we decided to go simple and traditional decor as well, we added pops of red with bows on the wreaths and some red poinsettias! The wreaths are real and I purchased them at Costco.
In my entryway and dining room, I decided to keep with a neutral palette. For the banister I wanted the garland to stand out, so I took two different types of garland from Michael’s and layered them on top of one another.
Garland & Wreaths: Michael’s.
Ribbon: Hobby Lobby.
I did a little diy project on the wreaths I hung on the banister. I bought them from Michael’s several years ago and I wanted a more flocked look, so I sprayed them with artificial “snow” spray. I added ivory ribbon to the garland and new throw pillows on the bench to complete the look for the entryway!

Christmas Fireplace Decor
My mantle garland is amazing! I purchased it at a local store in Arlington, Texas called Decorator’s Warehouse. When I saw this huge flocked prelit garland there, I knew it was perfect for my large mantle. Getting it to stay up there was no easy feat however! It is very heavy, so I used six command strip hooks, wrapped rope around the garland and secured the rope to the hooks. Luckily it hasn’t moved since I put it up!
