Christmas in Our Living Room

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.)

TWENTY THURSDAYS ‘TILL CHRISTMAS // Christmas Words

Before you lash out at me for posting Christmas décor in July (and now August), let me explain what this idea is. We’ve all been there where it’s mid-December and we realize we’re totally behind. On gifts, on RSVPing to parties, sending out Christmas cards and even putting up the decorations. Or even if you’re ahead, maybe you’re feeling uninspired. I figured that if I started now, I would be able to get creative with my décor ideas and have a whole repertoire of ideas. So, if you don’t feel like reading now, bookmark this and remember me come Christmas so that you can find some great Christmas décor ideas. When you are ready.
