Christmas truly is the best time of year.
I really wish the whole month of December would just SLOW down.
This was my first time decorating for Christmas in our new house and it was fun but also kind of hard. At our old house I had a spot for every Christmas decoration that we owned so putting everything out was easy. It took me a while but after playing around with stuff I think I got most things in the place I liked even though I had to move things around a few times(and not to mention moving the 9 foot decorated Christmas tree across the living room because I decided I didn’t like where it was after a few days….that was fun.)
So, get cozy, grab some hot cocoa and a big, soft blanket and welcome to our home.
I LOVE reindeer……. I actually want to get a real one but Matt said no…maybe he will come around to the idea in a couple years.
I like natural looking Christmas greenery so I just filled up this bucket with them. (Don’t look at our dirty floors…)
I always like to use items I already have when decorating
This mantle is quite a bit smaller than our one at our old house so it was kind of a challenge to decorate it. Next year I’ll probably do something different.
It’s really nice to have a fireplace to hang stockings from
I think these vintage Santa mugs are adorable…. I did have 4 but accidentally washed 2 of them in the dish washer and they were ruined.
I found him at a second hand store and think he’s also adorable. Aubree was playing with him and tore off his arm so it’s tucked in his Santa suit……… poor Santa.
Sometimes simple is just better
Christmas trees lit up at night is just simply the best.
I used burlap ribbon to decorate the tree
We just bought this tree a month ago and I was soooooooo excited because it is pre-lit.
We use a variety of ornaments on our tree…. ornaments from Matt and my childhood, new ornaments, the ornaments the girls get, etc.
I like vintage ornaments like this one
This is one from my childhood….. I would’ve been 5 when I got this
And I like cute ones like this little owl
This year I went simple on wrapping paper.
Another reindeer…. 🙂 If you’re reading this Matt, ” All I want for Christmas is a reindeer. Please, with sugar on top.”
Next time I’ll share my porch!
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season.
Thanks for stopping by.
