‘Tis the Season

 

The month of December is all about the new and different ways we can celebrate christmas in our homes. On top of that thinking of thoughtful gifts for family and friends. I’ve pulled together my favorite Christmas decor ideas for around the home just in case you need a little help getting started.

I’m not sure what I love more the pearls wrapped so delicately around the tree or the adorable furnishings covered in florals. This space is even more magical decked out for the holidays. I wouldn’t mind spending my afternoon reading a book here.

Wreaths are a lovely way of showing your creativity, as they look center of attention in a front window or welcoming your guests for the holidays. If you have a adorable pink building like this one, it couldn’t hurt having a large wreath to adorn it. This would look great centering the garage or side of the house.

This cute and creative woodsy theme Christmas tree is a sure way to make your home more merry. A lot of families participate in the themed Christmas trees changing it up each year. As for my family we have boxes full of ornaments passed down by family members. My husband and I are starting our collection of meaningful ornaments, as we continue to buy each other an ornament or two every year.

This dining table is dripping in garland, one can only have major envy over this oak table setting. A lot of memories are made at the dinner table during the holiday season, so why not set a table worth remembering. The must have items on the table are greenery, linens, glassware and dinnerware. Everything doesn’t need to match, just make sure it’s the same color scheme and some candles to set the mood.

Show your mantel and fireplace some love this season as it is a main focal point in many living and family rooms. This is my living room mantel decorated with faux garland found at Costco and adding some simple brass candle sticks and gold nutcrackers to finish off the look. It wouldn’t be complete without stockings and a few poinsettias.
