Our home is slowly getting back to normal after our holiday party. The gazillion liquor bottles, beer cans and wine bottles from the bar are back in the basement and wine cellar. And just so you know, we don’t mind having extras from the bar as somehow they manage to disappear throughout the year. Go figure …
The weather this week has been in the high seventies and low eighties all week. I cannot believe it is the week before Christmas and it’s been this warm. But there is a silver lining for our family. And that is our back porch! Today I’m talking all about decorating our back porch for the holidays.
Decorating our family room for the holidays was so much fun. I think the red has made such a difference in this room. And I am not sure if we will have to wait for valentines day for it to reappear! I mean those pillows aren’t even from Christmas!
Oh my gosh! What an incredible experience I just had at my home these past two days. I was one lucky girl as four magazines were at my home shooting for spring, summer and holiday issues for 2018!
I can honestly say that it never occurred to me to decorate my master bedroom for Christmas. Apparently, I am clueless because I have never decorated any bedroom in our home for the holidays.
But that has all changed.
As I sit here and realize our house is finally decorated for the holidays, I can catch my breath for a minute. As much as I loved decorating every room in our house, decorating the kitchen for Christmas was a special experience.
As much as I struggled this year with decorating for Christmas, I do have to say I am very happy how it turned out… especially Christmas in my living room. This was the first time I have decorated our entire house and I learned a lot. Don’t overdo it. Stay true to the look and feel of your home. And don’t get intimidated by what you see on all of the beautiful Instagram feeds. (That last one was the biggie for me.)
