when i read that gussy's prompt this week was red, the very first thing that popped into my mind was
i know, 'emily. geez. can we at least have halloween & thanksgiving??'
but of course we can, but this is what popped into my holiday loving brain first.
get inspired folks :)
oh there are so many things about christmas i love. and decorating has to be close to the top. i usually decorate with lots of greens and whites with the occasional pop of red.
i am loving the inspiration i am getting from typing 'christmas decorations' into the pinterest search bar.
i would very much like to visit the town where this adorable door front abides.
how easy is this? ribbon and christmas balls. hint- visit your local salvation army or thrift store - they are starting to put out all their christmas stuff and are always stocked full of vintage christmas ornaments. almost all of ours come secondhand.
and another one i am so excited to do. i have tons of glass canisters from our wedding reception that will be perfect for this.
i like the idea of the striped table runners as dual place mats. people are so smart.
this will be definitely be part of our decor this year.
i really like little trees. i don;t think we could pull off putting it on a table. i can see it lasting all of 5 minutes before my children have it on the floor.
so there you have it. a christmas post before halloween. hope it wasn't stressful, you still have two months...
all images/sources can be found on my holidays and partys pinboard.
one more thing -
not just at christmas time.
