To those who know me, it is no surprise that I was super excited to start sharing all of the Christmas things on my blog!! Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday and for so many reasons. Spending time with family is the best!! With family spread out several hours from one another and a brother who is now in NC, the holidays are a time for us to be together and I love it! Another reason is that I absolutely love sharing in the joy of our children while they experience all things Christmas!! So… it should be no surprise that today’s blog is just the beginning!!
I thought I would share some of my Christmas inspiration with you all and hopefully provide some inspiration and get some of you in the spirit!! This year will be my first year blogging about Christmas décor, since I started this blog right after the New Year! It will soon mark one whole year that I’ve been writing and sharing on the blog with you all! Time flies when you’re having fun!
One of my favorite areas to decorate is our mantel. This year, I am hoping to give the mantel a rustic Christmas theme. Since the basement is the “man cave,” I thought rustic would fit the space well! Below is some of my inspiration!! (All of these are also on my Pinterest board, which you can find by clicking HERE.)
Next, is the dining room… this is the most challenging space for me, because I am not 100% sure what theme or style I am wanting to go with yet. But I am leaning in the direction below… Seriously, how beautiful are these spaces?!?
The last inspiration I will share for today is Christmas trees!! I love a neutral tree that also holds sentimental ornaments. If I can convince my husband, we may get a smaller tree for the basement this year too!! DOUBLE the Christmas!! And just take a look below for some stunning inspiration I found in the Christmas tree department!!
Lastly, stay tuned for next week, where I have decided that Christmas pillows deserve an entire blog post!! Particularly because I have practiced finding great pillows at a low cost!!
