Alright friends! The Christmas marathon continues! I haven’t slept much this week and a shower is sounding pretty good right about now.. but #priorities. I’m having so much fun sharing my holiday decor with all of you! Up on the agenda today.. the kitchen! I kept some of my kitchen Christmas decor the same as last year, but also added a few simple things. I took a lot of pictures so I’ll let them do most of the talking and try to not ramble on like I often do. You’re definitely hearing enough from me this week! ;)
So excited to be partnering with Tree Classics for today’s post! I was asked to be part of their Christmas Housewalk and to describe my ideal Christmas. My kids and I talk about this all the time! While we love Christmas Day, it’s more about the months leading up to Christmas for us. Of course we love Christmas music, coming up with the perfect gifts for loved ones, and the decorating.. we really love the decorating around here. :) But more than anything we just love the feeling in the air this time of year! The feeling of Christ’s endless love for each and every one of us. A time to focus on others and to recognize and appreciate all we have in our lives. A perfect Christmas for me is spending the months leading up to that special day making memories with my family, giving to others, and noticing and appreciating all of life’s blessings. Big and small. Throw in a cozy pair of pajamas and It’s a Wonderful Life and I’m a happy girl. ;)
I’m so excited to show you how I’ve decorated our mudroom for the holidays! Tree Classics let us pick out a tree to feature and I chose their Oregonian Slim Christmas Tree. I was originally thinking of it for another spot in my house, but when it came and I assembled it I decided on a whim to try it in my mudroom in this space between our black dutch door off of our porch and our little mudroom closet. Perfect fit! It was like it had found its home. :) I love skinny trees. I always have! They are fun to put in unexpected places where space it at a premium and they are easy to decorate! It doesn’t take much to make them look full and festive. This tree is absolutely darling. So easy to set up and I love the look of the branches.
So excited to kick off my holiday decor today with some amazing bloggers who are also close friends of mine! If you just popped over from Tamara’s beautiful home at CitrineLiving hello and welcome! If you’re a regular here… hello dear friend and welcome back. :)

Time for the Holiday Home Showcase! Although I have a confession to make first. For me this is the Holiday Room Showcase! Ha! I’m spreading my decor out one room at a time this December. I take too many pictures to fit a whole house tour into one post and thought I’d save myself a little sanity by sharing one room at a time. Not much mind you.. there’s still a regular amount of insanity going on around here.. but I managed to salvage a little. ;)
So come in! Time for a tour of Christmas in my family room! The halls are decked and feeling all sorts of cozy.
Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! If you didn’t check in with my blog I shared the winner of the planner giveaway and a new fashion post Saturday if you’re interested! I’m going to be posting fast and furious for the next few weeks to fit everything in I have to share with you all so check back often. I keep hearing Rocky music playing in the background and I’ve warned my family that laundry will pile up and pizza will be a staple this month. Time to BLOG. :) First up: my Christmas gallery wall!
Happy Friday friends! What a week! I have been so busy with my kids’ activities and trying to wrap up Christmas decorating and get pictures of everything. I’m more than ready for a weekend! Before we get this party started I just have to say that it was so fun hearing from so many of you for my planner giveaway (still one last day to enter!). I loved hearing a little about some of you and seeing where you are all from. ALL over! It’s just so cool. We all live so far apart but are connected in our love for decor or organizing or fashion or family.. whatever you come to my blog for! We’re connected and I love that. It’s a small world after all. (I’ve been to Disneyland this month.. can you tell?). :)
Ok. Let’s get this party started shall we!? To kick off my Christmas decor this season I’m joining 30 talented bloggers to bring you Christmas tablescape galore! If you are planning on having a dinner party or just want to add some Christmas cheer to your family dinners or to a special Christmas Eve meal, look no further! Huge thanks to Lory from DesignThusiasm for hosting our tour and rounding up this fun group of bloggers. And if you came here from Heather’s fun blog (Setting for Four) hello and welcome!
