Happy December! I can tell it’s finally here because my house is all lit up at night! I’m also tired and all out of batteries. The ups and downs of the most wonderful time of the year. Ha. ;) This week has been fun, but also busy.. holiday events are in full swing! I set a goal today to prioritize sleep because that’s usually the first thing to go for me during December. My goals usually stick for about a day so I’m declaring it here in hopes that I can actually make it happen. I just wish I didn’t need to sleep at all! There is so much to fit into one month! I personally wish December was 3 months long.
Which probably explains why I start decorating and celebrating in October. :)
I decorated my holiday entry on the sophisticated side this year to match my front living room. Which I still need to take pictures of and share!
My Merry Christmas banner greets everyone on their way inside.
I combined a variety of branches in my beloved minka pot. I used a few different faux cedar branches with these white berry stem branches. Such an easy way to make a big impact! It took less than 5 minutes to arrange – really there’s no secret to it! Just use a variety of greenery. Then I placed ornaments in a woven tray next to my pot. At the end of my post I’ll link the branches I used and similar faux cedar branches. I found a lot of beautiful options still in stock!
I ordered this print on Amazon for my entry table in the fall and then decided to keep it up through the holidays because I love the green! It’s such a pretty canvas of the countryside. I added candles on the other side and a basket and blanket below. Simple and done!
I kept my bench simple too with neutral pillows and a pom throw.
This was my entry table last year. A little more whimsical and fun!
Which look do you like better? I love them both and always have fun mixing things up each year!
Ok.. short post because I have to sleep. It’s my December goal you know.
So no more long rambling blog posts that keep me up too late!
Until tomorrow night.
