Happy November! I can’t believe it’s here! October flew by so quickly I hardly had time to catch my breath. We didn’t get it together for family costumes this year. The kids were doing costumes with friends for school and we were so busy leading up to it. We had several parties going on Halloween weekend so last minute Ad and I grabbed our beloved reindeer pjs and off we went! A perfect solution since we are all about comfort! And don’t repeat.. but I’ve been listening to Christmas music since September. Ha. :)
Grateful one of my three still wants to twin with mom. :)
I have been decking the halls and will have lots to share soon! I’m using my same garland this year and I wanted to share it again because the 9 foot faux cedar garland sold out and I know the 6 foot will be gone soon too!
I’ve had so much fun pulling it out again this year. Nothing like holiday greenery. An instant pick me up!
Sharing a few things I’m using to decorate this year. These ornaments came in the mail and are stunning! Amazing quality. Kind of a splurge so I just ordered a few and I’m spreading them out between 2 different trees and mixing them with other things. They have such a cool modern vibe.
Gold with a splash of red/maroon in my family room this year!
These two green throws are both beautiful options! They are different shades of green so I wanted to show them side by side. Sorry about the horrible lighting here.. I snapped these pics quick with my phone on a cloudy day!
These plaid plates are one of my favorite purchases this year! I love melamine! I want to say I love melamine because then my kids can’t break them but really I break more things than my kids to so I’m happy they aren’t breakable for my sake! So cute for holiday entertaining or just every day dinner with the family this time of year. If things say they are sold out at the moment, be sure to put in your info (“notify me when it’s in stock”) if you want them because a lot of times Target re-stocks items.
This hoop wreath is another holiday favorite I was so happy they brought back! This was last year’s wreath with a black ribbon. This year they come with forest green ribbons and are stunning in person! I ordered several. It has already sold out and come back in stock twice in the last month.
These swags are also adorable and there are so many fun things you can do with them! Perfect on the back of chairs, on cabinets, over mirrors, etc. Same thing where they keep selling out and coming back in stock.
DYING over these adorable pine trees! The branches! The gold pots! They are just so beautiful. I’m either going to group them together somewhere or have them in random spots all over my house. I wanted to share them quickly before they are gone too!
These faux snowy pine trees I’ve had for years and love pulling them out. They come with lights and light up so beautiful at night! In past years I’ve keep them up through January. :)
A few fun PB items that I’m using this year! You can’t be unhappy when you have Merry and Fa la la all over your house. :)
These marble and wood cheese boards are perfect for holiday parties! I’m going to display the little tree on a shelf but the large tree and round snowflake board (isn’t it adorable!?) are both fun options for charcuterie boards.
This holiday cheese board I’ve had for years and just use for decor. It always looks so festive on my kitchen counters! So do our holiday pretzel hugs.
We just made them last weekend for a party. Halloween style. :)
You know me.. simple when it comes to all things food/cooking. This isn’t fancy but such an easy and festive way to serve snacks! I love doing things like this when we’re having a family movie night.
In Nov/Dec I get a little more creative. :)
I mentioned this last year but one of my all time favorite gifts to give for teachers/neighboards/friends is a fun cheese board paired with a favorite board book! There are so many great options and the holiday boards would be so fun to give at the beginning of December! Then you’re done with your gift giving early and it’s something people can use during the holiday season.
Here are some board book options I rounded up! I’ll have more fun gift ideas up on the blog soon too.
Ok.. this post turned out really random. A little brain dump of holiday prep going on around here! I hope it’s helpful as you’re doing your own. I’m off to deck the halls! Lots to “wrap up” around here.
Happy my kids didn’t hear that one.. I’d get a nice eye roll for sure!
