Hello my sweet friends!
We finally got our tree decorated this week, and I can honestly say, I’m done with Christmas decorating. Like, so done.
As in “stick a fork in me.”
I actually started thinking about January decor today… ;) As much as I love putting the holiday decor up, I’m just as thrilled every year to take it all down.
Before I sound like a Scrooge or something, though, let me show you our beautiful tree!
Every year, we go to the Walsh Tree Farm in St. Louisville, Ohio and find the perfect tree. Seriously, friends, this place has frazier firs as far as the eye can see, and they are ALL perfect.
I like trees that aren’t too dense, with room for the ornaments to hang and sparkle in the light. My kids decorated this beauty, using all of the black, white, and red ornaments we have, as well as their “Baby’s First Christmas” ornaments, cuz it’s not Christmas without those. As much as I might drool over “designer trees”, I always love ours best.
Our family room is small, but cozy, and we spend every evening after Thanksgiving watching Christmas movies together.
This PB pillow is a favorite, and it’s perfect for the bench that sits back to back with the love seat and provides some extra seating in the adjacent kitchen.
Speaking of the kitchen, the chalkboard wall makes a perfect Christmas card display, with hand drawn chalk marker frames. I can’t wait until it’s full.
The pantry door is dressed up with a fresh green wreath. The smell is heavenly.
Last but not least, this hot cocoa “bar” is probably the most popular decor item in da house.
We balance out the chocolate with citrus fruit. ;)
My chalkboard cannisters hold cocoa mix and peppermint marshmallows, and we have Santa face mugs to up the fun factor.
I am so happy to be able to relax and enjoy the decorations now. And wrap the presents. And bake the cookies. ;)
Have a great week!
