Busy Philipps loves to get in the holiday spirit with her family every year. She's a master at Elf on the Shelf placement, which her daughters Birdie and Cricket just love, and she transforms her home into a winter wonderland that has to be seen.
This year, Michael's gave Busy's home a full-on, over-the-top Christmas makeover (via a paid collaboration), which includes an astonishing seven different trees (and we thought The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom Jennifer Aydin's four trees was impressive!). Check out her living room tree above — it's over 10 feet tall! Let's pretend we were invited over to Busy's lovely California home for the holidays and take a gander inside:
What an Entryway!
For her entryway, Michael's told Home & Design that Busy wanted something "sweet and simple minimalist." Goal achieved! The grand staircase and foyer greets visitors with a homespun tree and some easygoing "Christmas House Rules," which include to "give more than you get." The oversized "Merry Christmas" garland is a fun upgrade from plain ol' tinsel, too.
That Wreath, Though
What do we love most about this enormous wreath? All those pointsettia blooms!
More Trees to Match Her Dining Room
Does it get any more festive than this pair of glitter trees? Well, sure, if you add some purple, blue and green ornamnets.
Fear not, Busy's stairwell wasn't ignored. She swagged the railings with prelit garland and added a bunch of oversized red bows to zhush up the overall look.
Al Fresco Decorations for the Win
Each lantern has been adorned with a bow for a cool holiday effect outside.
A Pinkalicious Tree
In her daughter Cricket's bedroom, Busy created a pink unicorn tree bedecked with purple and blue ornaments and whole lot of glitter. Pink trees are so hot this year — let's not forget Bethenny Frankel also put up a neon pink version this year!
A self-professed nutcracker-lover, Busy and the design team transformed her living room around the theme. Oversized nutcrackers are holding down the fort flanking the mantle with medium sized nutcrackers set in her alcoves and another giant one flanking the piano.
Who knew Christmas in sunny and warm Los Angeles could be oh-so-cute?
