Holiday Decor



I am pretty sure that I am 100% becoming my mother, not that there is anything wrong with that, but it is funny to think that just a few years ago I wasn't all that crazy about decorating the house for the Holidays. Now, I can't get e n o u g h. Finding the perfect wreath for the front door has been such a task this year, because I want something that is different from everyone else + is easy to pull out year after year. Since this year's color theme is full of gold, N + I grabbed this beautiful teardrop wreath with gold accents from Target & I absolutely LOVE it. & Last night, we finally made it to the store to pick up some more white lights to finish decorating the Christmas tree, since a couple days ago we ran out. We also found these cute Monogrammed Christmas Stockings at Target & they are only $13, score! They are currently hanging on our plantation shutters since we don't have a fireplace downstairs, ha! & one of my favorite things to do during the Christmas Holiday is wrap Christmas presents, like Ashley said in her post yesterday, I am not a fan of straight lines, actually they kinda make me mad, but I do love picking out the perfect wrapping paper, bows, ribbon & gift tags + decorating the giftbox itself #itsthelittlethings.

Winter Inspiration


Happy December sweet friends. This beautiful month has to be one of my favorites for so many reasons. I have declared December as the month of joy, happiness & the month to finish what you started. Over the next several weeks, I am looking forward heading to the local tree farm with N & picking out the perfect tree(s) for our first Christmas in the new house. & I am uber excited about decorating it head-to-toe with white lights, gold balls & maybe a fun striped bow on the top (hence the inspiration above!). One of my favorite things during the Holidays is hot chocolate - this hot chocolate bar sounds amazing & I am seriously considering hosting a neighborhood hot chocolate party! & like most of us, I am already searching for the perfect holiday card (like this one + this one) to send to all my friends near + far (& I can't possibly forget the washi tape ha!).

What are some of your favorite things to do this Holiday Season?
