Christmas with Debbie Macomber: A Holiday Home Tour [VIDEO]

Debbie Macomber’s widely beloved Christmas novels are an endearing expression of her love for the season. Likewise, her message of family, friendship, and joy shines through in the way she prepares her home for the holidays. In this video, Debbie shows us how her own family decorates for and celebrates the most wonderful time of the year.

Here’s what we learned from Debbie about Christmas decorating:

1. It’s Merrier with More Christmas Trees

Debbie enjoys brightening up her home with a decorated Christmas tree in the living room, foyer, family room, and in each of her children’s rooms. If you’ve thought of having a second tree or more, now is a great time to try it out. Whatever size or shape, multiple trees let you create different looks with the entire family.

2. It’s Time to Display Your Christmas Collection

Seeing her collection of Nativity scenes reminds Debbie of the stories and people who gave them to her as gifts. Decorate with items that hold special meaning for you, such as heirloom ornaments, travel souvenirs, or keepsakes from major milestones. They’re a great way to start conversations and celebrate your most memorable experiences.

3. It’s All About the People in Your Life

Debbie loves hosting, so she makes sure her home is festive yet comfortable for her guests. Christmas is for spending time with those we care about, so we want to make our home as inviting as we can. A few throws for keeping warm, handmade place cards, or simply providing for special dietary needs—personal touches such as these make your celebrations as entertaining and heartwarming as Debbie’s stories.

    Merry Christmas!

    I always love your videos. You have been my favourite author for many years. My daughter Donna Peliti; took me to your retreat in 2013 in Nashville after I had been hit by a vehicle while waiting to cross at the traffic light.. I was left handicapped and was in my wheelchair but Donna being a real trooper; wheeled me all over so that I could get to meet with you. I have pictures taken with you which I treasure very much.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy and blessed New Year.

    Your home is beautiful and I also love Nativity scenes. Balsam Hill items are beautiful, but oh my, they are expensive.
    Your books continue to entertain me after all these years. Thank you for your truly gifted writing skills.
    May you have a blessed Holiday season.

    I literally just finished reading “The Snow Bride”, and I can’t wait to get back to Alaska again by reading your newest “Alaskan Holiday”.

    I know I’m behind, but will catch up with all of your newer books.

    I just finished Alaskan Holiday and I thought it was a delightful book to read. Will there be a sequel? Love your home Debbie. Thank you for the tour.

    Debbie you are so stinkin adorable, sincere and precious to us all! God has blessed you with such a loving, fun and gentle spirit! I love your creativity and passion for Christmas trees. I too have multiple Christmas trees in the homes I’ve had, but they stay up all year long and have just white lights and pine cones on them except for Christmas. I then decorate it with signs that say “Thank You” and “Jesus” in a black background with white letters, so at night the letters stands out. Plus I just love black and white anyway!!! Well dear Debbie, while my husband and I lived in our vacation home up in Lake Cushman, (darn it….I still cry over selling our home there!!), I met you at your restaurant in Port Orchard and fell in love with your wonderful ways of living life and of course your books! Anyway, I soaked in all your words of wisdom from your 4 non- fiction books. I have shared your heart with other people. So bless you dear Debbie and may you and your family stay healthy and joyful through this earthly journey called life!!!! Hugs to you all and a Merry Christ Center Christmas!

    Thank you for opening your beautiful home & memories to us it actually brought a lot back of when my boys were young, miss those days a lot. I have 2 adult Autistic children and 1 of them also has Parkinson’s Disease. Some days are rough but books for me have always been my little “vacatio/escape” for a little I read one book a day always have. When I was much younger I started with V.C. Andrews I’ve read everything she’s written except the new one waiting for release. Then I got hooked on your books and I have read 4 of them now will have to go the library being on a fixed income for 3 adults is hards. Especially when (me) mom is severely disabled with back, leg & neck injuries but reading makes me literally forget everything. Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New year to you and your family
