Neutral Christmas Console Table

Happy Monday everyone!  One more week until kids are out of school for Christmas break!  I have to be honest and say that I’m so excited to get this week behind me.  I can’t wait to have my kids out of school so we can spend mornings in our pajamas watching Christmas movies and evenings in our pajamas driving around looking at Christmas lights.  There seems to be a theme here with pajamas.  Clearly I’m a fan.  :)christmas-console-table-decorating
Sharing how I decorated my console table for the holidays today!  This table ended up being more neutral and less colorful than I originally planned, but it still feels festive when you come around the corner into our family room.

Some simple red berries in my favorite Target pitcher add the only punch of color.  But it’a happy punch of color nonetheless.  :)silver-christmas-deer
The deer (or should I say our peace keeper) is keeping watch over the place and next to him is a touch of my Fall decor I left out in a bowl.  I’ve had fun experimenting with mixing golds and silvers this year.

The cute little tree in the corner is covered in some favorite sparkly Rudolph ornaments.  I’m a sucker for anything that has to do with Rudolph.

Just to the side of this table you can see our Santa pictures displayed on my door.

Christmas decorating is so fun because you can just make a few easy changes and have a new look for the holidays.

Table ready for December!  Now if we can just slow down enough to bring on the Christmas pj’s, we’ll be set.  :)

Enjoy your week everyone!

 

Displaying Past Santa Pictures

Is tomorrow already Wednesday!?  Oh man.  It’s December.  Are you feeling it?  Overwhelmed much?  :)  My calendar makes me tired.  Mostly good stuff!  Just a lot of it.  I’m grateful I got an earlier start this year on Christmas preparation although I still feel like there is so much to do.  I’ve been trying to take some pictures of my Christmas decor and can’t seem to keep the house clean long enough to make it happen!  Ha!  I did get a few today before everything exploded on my kitchen counters.  Hopefully I can get the rest taken tomorrow, but with the way this month is going so far I’m not holding my breath!

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  I have been working all evening on my post all about my friend’s annual Favorite Things party!  (Isn’t this table centerpiece from the party adorable!?)  Oh my word – SO many fun favorites!  It was our best party yet!  I want one of everything.  I keep adding things from the party to my Amazon shopping cart for my husband to give me for Christmas.
