Christmas Decor I’m using this year!

Happy November friends!  Let’s get this party started!  I spent Friday and Saturday taking down most of my Fall decor.  Good-bye sweet bats!  Enjoy that all important meeting. ;)

Then it was time.  Finally time!  Time to turn on my Christmas music, light my favorite Fir candle and bring all of the REALLY fun stuff out. :)  I was pulling out new Christmas items and old favorites I’m using to decorate with this year and thought I’d snap a few pictures of the new items you’ll see popping up in my decor this year.  Some of these items are selling out and some are on sale this weekend so I wanted to get this up fast for you!  I know a lot of people like to hold off Christmas decorating until after Thanksgiving, but I feel like more and more people are decorating early this year!  Have any of you noticed that?  Especially with Thanksgiving falling so late in November.  I’ve been decorating for Christmas right after Halloween my whole married life (20+ years) so I’m happy to see it’s starting to become more common.

Makes me feel a little less crazy. ;)

Anyone else getting an early start?  Here are a few items I’m really excited about this year that won’t last long!

Favorite Christmas Decor (Sunny Side Up)

I found some cozy cream Ugg stockings marked down last year after Christmas and can’t find identical socks on-line but these stockings are very similar!  So are these stockings.  I have to say that I love so many things in Rachel Parcell’s new Christmas collection!  Especially the Bobble Knit items. :)  I splurged on this beautiful chunky knit tree skirt to go with my stockings and it’s marked down this weekend!  I also picked up this fun striped red pop pom throw to match my red striped stockings.  These similar red striped stockings are on sale this weekend too!

Of course my favorite fa-la-la banner will be back in full force. :)  I’m also so excited about these beautiful marble and gold stocking holders and they just sold out!  Target has some that are similar and PB has a beautiful all gold set.  I’m using this fun wood bead garland on my family room tree this year and might combine it with another garland.. still playing around with that!

Ok.. you guys!  This faux cedar garland is honestly the closest I’ve seen to the real deal!  I’m using it in several spots this year.  I got mine at Nordstrom and it sold out crazy fast, but I found the exact same garland at Anthro!  I have a feeling it won’t last long there either so don’t hesitate if you want it.  I would recommend at least two for most fireplace mantels, tables, etc.  It’s 6 feet long but always looks best having some hanging down over each of the sides. :)  The cute OH DEER mat I also bought at Nordstrom sold out too!  Like yesterday.  But I found it on Amazon for you guys so all is well.  For a few days anyway. ;)  I’m using more white on my family room tree this year and picked up some of these adorable snowy house ornaments.  Two styles have sold out but one is still in stock!  Also this adorable house that lights up is back in stock (I used it on my living room mantel last year).

A few of my favorite trees!  This Pre-Lit Alpine tree is small but the branches are so realistic!   I’m also so excited to use these Pre-lit Snowy Pine Trees.  They are just beautiful all lit up.  And last but not least, these Light Up Birch Trees are on sale this weekend!  I bought them a few years ago when they first came out and loved them so much that I picked up a few more last year.  I have fun plans for them again.. they are favorites for sure!

So those are new favorites you’ll see in my home this year!  I know most of these items will be gone in a week so I thought I’d give you all a sneak peek now. :)

I’m also using these beautiful Eucalyptus wreaths again.  So pretty hanging with some festive holiday ribbon!

And I’m going to use this pretty Mercury Garland in a few new spots too.  I ordered more after using it last year because it was so beautiful!

Also I had so many of you sending messages and e-mails about how bummed you were that my new red plaid rug sold out!  I had a feeling it wouldn’t last long!  I did some digging and found it on-line in two other stores.  You can also order it here at Birch Lane, or here at Wayfair.

Act fast and you’re welcome. ;)

I was going to share this pic in my next post but this beautiful Puff Sleeve sweater I’m loving is also selling out in some sizes and it’s so cute for the holidays!  It comes in lots of colors but you all knew I’d snag the green. :)  I told you I’m especially obsessed with all things bobble knit at the moment!  The sleeves are so fun and it’s honestly so comfortable and warm and just a great fit. Trust me on this one.  You’ll love this sweater!  I know you will. :)

Happy holiday decorating, planning, shopping or whatever it is you’re doing to prepare for the next two months!  I’ll be jumping back to all things Thanksgiving at some point but for now.. Michael Bublé and I are glued at the hip. (Sorry Kenny.. I’ll be back into you after the holidays.)  ;)

p.s.  If you haven’t snagged my FREE Holiday Planner now is a great time!  Get organized and on top of things this month so that you can enjoy a stress free December.  I’m so happy to hear that it has been helpful to some of you!  You can download it HERE.

  1. Your house is going to look so festive! Looks like you found lots of great things to add to your already wonderful decor stash. Looking forward to seeing what magic you create. I’m pretty firm in the after Thanksgiving beginning of December camp. I don’t decorate much at all. BUT I do start watching the Hallmark movies now. I almost turned on some Christmas music, but decided I wasn’t in the mood yet. Go figure. My older daughter goes nutty about Christmas before Thanksgiving. She gets on my case for the movies and the music coming too early. My mom also decorated just a few weeks before Christmas. Having 6 kids might have contributed to that idea, though. LOL Have fun with your house decorating1

    1. Thanks Jeanne! I’ll think of you when I’m watching my next Hallmark Christmas movie! Which will no doubt be tonight while I’m blogging. Ha. ;)

  2. I just can’t get on board decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving. I haven’t purchased any new Christmas decor in years, because I want to enjoy each holiday. I will spend this month reflecting on how thankful I am for all God has blessed me with. Once the turkey is put away, them I will be all out Operation festive!

    1. I get that Tracy! Everyone has to do what they feel best about. For me the Christmas lights and decor just adds to the thankfulness and joy of Thanksgiving. We reflect a lot on how thankful and blessed we are this month too. Enjoy the holidays!
