I hope you all had a fantastic Halloween and ate plenty of candies, etc etc… But you know what comes after Halloween that you get over a month to prepare for? CHRISTMAS. Guys – I’m so excited. This is the first year where I have our own full house to decorate so I’m planning to make sure that you can feel the festivities in every room, yes. Even the bathroom if my boyfriend allows me.
Festive Decorations – Inspiration from Pinterest!
We purchased our Christmas tree a couple weeks ago – I wanted to set it up as soon as we arrived home. However, my boyfriend said that we had to wait until after Halloween before we set it up. (So guess what I did November 1?) Now, the Christmas tree has lights… but we don’t have any ornaments… so that has to change A.S.A.P.
This post is just to share some inspiration that I’ve gathered for festive decorations on pinterest – and hopefully I’ll be able to find a way to DIY some of them without spending too much $$$.
It’s trying to find that balance for decorations that are festive but don’t look tacky! I find that there’s so many people who have 500+ beautiful decorations, but when you pair them all together your house just looks like a mess. These photos are the perfect balance (in my opinion.)
We don’t have a mantle in our house – but I love the little trees with the burlap sacks and simplicity of this decor.
We have some nice white trim similar to the one pictured, so I plan to wrap it up in a garland. Perhaps adding some burlap bows or poinsetta flowers.
Also, that rug doesn’t match our home decor – but I’m seriously loving it! So boho.
This house looks GORGEOUS! Can I live here? Look how clean, open and airy it is! We don’t have a railing with spindles, but I want to add something like this going down our staircase.
This is just for the Mmm! factor – these look so delicious! (The link is to the recipe! You’re welcome.)
Oh and if you’re looking for easy DIY gift ideas, last year I shared a post on these Triple Chocolate Brownie mix jars which were almost a pinterest fail, but I saved them!
I could share so many pictures here, but if you’re in the mood to see more festive decorations make sure to check out my pinterest board which I’ll be adding a ton of inspiration pictures to for the next couple months.
When it comes to Christmas, are you a Grinch or a Who?
