It’s official. We have a holly jolly playroom in our house. I mean really jolly. Suuuper jolly. More color than I have ever used in our Christmas decorating. To deck the halls… uh plank wall… in here, I went all whimsical crazy with some of Kirkland’s retro decor from their Christmasland line.
Olivia and Robert are beside themselves with excitement. This room has been the wild card ever since we finished it a few weeks ago, so different from the other rooms in our house but that’s the best part!
My photos really don’t do it justice for how glowy and twinkly it is in person. (Is glowy a word? It is now.)
It’s like Dr. Seuss, Joanna Gaines, and Ralphie from a Christmas Story all threw a party in here. That’s the only way I can describe it.
I had these miniature trees already in my stash that worked perfectly in here just by adding a few colorful mini ornaments.
And I took down our adventure sign temporarily and replaced it with this wooden retro noel banner for something more festive.
My absolute favorite is this flocked pre-lit garland with all of these bright ornaments on it. I had no idea some of the ornaments were mercury glass until it arrived, and they’re beautiful! I think they add the perfect hint of vintage to it.
I stuck this sweet red truck on one of the shelves and the headlights even light up! Olivia is always begging me to play with it. So most of the time it’s being zoomed around the room with Barbies on top. Ha!
I gave it some company with some Christmas children’s books and dollar store bottle brush trees.
To go with our DIY storybook art and retro felted garland already in here, I picked up this pre-lit flocked wreath and bright Christmas trees pillow.
It was completely by accident but the colors in this pillow match the rest of this room exactly! Happy little coincidence.
And this wreath is battery operated so I don’t have to worry about running a cord down the wall or anything. There are lights inside of the mercury glass ornaments too, so when we turn the lights down, they emit this colorful glow, which Olivia just goes bananas for.
I say this every year, but this is my favorite Christmas of all so far. The older Olivia gets, the more exciting and magical everything is. Four years-old is going to be the age of the best Christmas ever. 😉
Just for fun, I pulled together some of my favorite Kirkland’s Christmas decor for the more rustic glam loving types. Ya know… if colorful, retro Christmas isn’t really your thing.
Is Christmas decorating officially in full swing at your house? Are you a colorful Christmas decorator or a neutral fan? We’re evenly split at our house, but at least now everybody’s happy. Compromise for the win!
