See Inside Busy Philipps' Home 'Transformed' for the Holidays with 7 Christmas Trees
Busy Philipps' Holiday Decor
"Guys, @MichaelsStores completely transformed my house for Christmas!" Philipps wrote on Instagram while teasing her holiday makeover last week. "Not only did they incorporate all my family collections into the trees but they also made every tree perfect and unique. Michaels is THE holiday headquarters and I love them so much!"
In her living room, there's a tall evergreen decorated in colorful ornaments with matching greenery over the fireplace, two chandeliers covered in lit garland and small accents such as "Merry Christmas" blocks on her coffee table.
A Montage for Santa
Atop the piano, Philipps houses a collection of Santa Claus figurines mixed in with photographs of her kids' visits to Old Saint Nick and two miniature Christmas trees. Standing beside the piano, she has a life-sized nutcracker.
A Festive Wreath
Philipps' oversize wreath accenting the windows at the far end of the room, pulls in matching accents from her Christmas tree and fireplace garland, adding pops of color with ball ornaments, plaid ribbons and red poinsettia flowers.
The Dawson's Creek alum's decor continues outside. While there won't likely be any snow at her Los Angeles home this Christmas, the lamposts that light her steps are accented with red bows to give added flare to the entryway.
Stockings Hung with Care
Her family's personalized stockings aren't hung by the chimney with care. Instead, they decorate the staircase along with garland and large red bows.
Spreading Christmas Cheer
At the bottom of the staircase, Philipps showcases a lit tree topped with a red bow and decorated in a simple banner that reads "Merry Christmas." Underneath the tree sits a child's skateboard and a pair of snow boots next to a sign that outlines her "Christmas House Rules" for the season: "No peeking, spread Christmas cheer, remember the reason, treasure family, believe, share your toys, sing loud for all to hear, give more than you get, and remember love is the best gift of all."
A Home for Figurines
A Whimsical Tree
In a room that seems to be outfitted for her two daugthers — Birdie, 10 and Cricket, 5 — Philipps has a more playful white tree ornamented with purple, blue and pink balls, as well as penguins, snowmen and bright pink cars.
A Sentimental Touch
At least one ornament on the tree has sentimental value to Philipps and her husband Marc Silverstein. It likely came from their group vacation to Hawaii earlier this year, as it reads "Mele Kalikimaka" which translates to "Merry Christmas" in Hawaiian. The ornament is a mashup of colorful seashells, stars and sand dollars, while each of her family members' names is written on a turtle.
In her dining room, two snowy trees decorated with pine cones and purple, green and blue ornaments frame a bird cage covered in garland to match the two evergreens.
A Snowy Centerpiece
The centerpiece of her dining table is a display of mini white trees mixed with frosted greenery, purple ornaments and candles.
