I just wanted to wish everyone a merry everything! So whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukah or Kwanzaa I hope you are enjoying your holiday with those close to you! This year is extra special around here, because the boys are finally getting into it all and they are super excited! I’ve been building numerous gingerbread houses, helping with wish lists, baking cookies for Santa, listening to Christmas music non-stop, enjoying evenings by the fire and overall just being present in the season. I didn’t go crazy with holiday decor throughout the entry house, but I did make sure that the spirit of Christmas was loud and clear in the living room! I managed to snap some photos while it was cleaned up for a matter of minutes aka Hudson was still at school and Asher was distracted in the other room.
You all know my style is full of color and my home doesn’t really work with the traditional red, green and gold Christmas decor. That didn’t stop me from making it look seasonal with my merry and bright look! I love color and decided to embrace it and make it work for Christmas.
Take a peek!
My light up reindeer bust was a purchase during a big Country/Cottage style moment I was having years ago. I still love it so, I made it more me by adding a bold kelly green bow!
How cute are these Fa La La letters! The Target spot got me yet again! They were colorful and full of glitter! Win, win.
I didn’t swap out any pillows, because I simply ran out of time and everything I wanted would have needed to be custom made. So, I added a little dose of winter to the furniture with faux sheepskin rugs.
Typically I just put colorful bows on my tree. I love the mix of the patterns in the ribbon and fabric scraps, but this year since the boys were really into Christmas I decided we would tackle ornaments and deal with whatever breaks happened! I had a good amount of soft and unbreakable ornaments which was great, but I did manage to pick up some adorable glass ones at Michaels that have survived!
My tree skirt is always a faux tree skirt that I bunch around the tree with some of my mini black and white gingham fabric.
The fireplace got into the Christmas spirit as well with some faux garland that I zhushed up with sparkly ornaments and some pom pom garland.
I was also excited to finally hang the stockings I picked up from Furbish last year during their after Christmas sale!
So, there is a little peek into my holiday decor! I had all intentions of getting everyone into Christmas PJ’s and taking an adorable photo for this blog post, but I ran out of time and instead of stressing out I’m just letting it go!
I hope you all have a lovely holiday! I will be spending the day making some appetizers and desserts for my family’s celebration tonight and then a big Pavone celebration on Christmas day!
Not sure what my blog schedule will be like next week, but I will definitely see you in the new year!
