Holiday Entry

Holiday Entry (Sunny Side Up)

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. :)

Holiday Entry (Sunny Side Up)

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!

Holiday Entry (Sunny Side Up)

My Merry Christmas banner greets everyone on their way inside.

Holiday Entry (Sunny Side Up)

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!

Holiday Entry (Sunny Side Up)

{vintage countryside framed canvas}

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!

Holiday Entry (Sunny Side Up)

I kept my bench simple too with neutral pillows and a pom throw.

{faux trees/faux snow}

This was my entry table last year. A little more whimsical and fun!

Holiday Entry (Sunny Side Up)

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.

Winter Fashion

*This post sponsored by Walmart. All product selections and opinions are my own!

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

{puffer jacket/hiker boots}

“Oh, the weather outside is frightful..” 

Actually no. No it’s not. There’s nothing frightful about San Diego winters at all. But it is chilly enough for a cute, lightweight puffer jacket. Score! We’ll take it. :)

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

{front porch sources}

Sharing a few recent Walmart fashion favorites today.. these boots are so comfortable!  (I linked other cute coat options below for those of you who really are dealing with frightful weather!)

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

{long sweater cardigan}

This long sweater cardigan is so fun! It’s cute and warm and I love the striped sleeves. I also love feeling like I have a stylish blanket on. :)

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

Loving these slim trouser pants too! The paper bag waist is so cute (perfect for holiday parties) and very flattering. Wear them with a fitted shirt tucked in and you are set.

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

{striped pjs/plush sleep robe}

Not long ago I shared these fuzzy robes Ad and I never want to take off.

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

{short sleeved sleep shirts/women’s cabin socks}

We’ve added these cute nightshirts and fuzzy socks to our cozy collection! I don’t like to sleep in nightshirts because I get twisted around in them (anyone else?) but I LOVE putting them on when I get out of the shower. I like to wear them while I blow dry my hair and put on make-up and then I get dressed last. These are so cute for the holidays and I love that they come in a pack of two! Fun to share with someone. :) These socks are a dream. Seriously so soft and warm! They are plush on the inside but have texture on the bottom too so that you don’t slip (my favorite). They come in lots of fun colors and patterns and I bought lots to have on hand for gifts. (Fun for teen girls too!)

I rounded up some fun winter fashion options below! We’re going to try to fit in a ski trip this year or early next year so I’ve been checking out all of Walmart’s ski clothes and they have so many cute, affordable options.

Christmas Mudroom & Santa Wall

*affiliate links used
Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)

When the Santa pictures are up on our shiplap display wall it’s officially Christmas at our house! I’m sharing our Christmas mudroom, Santa wall and stairs today. A fun little section of our house that gets the most day to day traffic!

Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)

{similar garland with lights!/ho ho ho pillow option/similar fa la la pillow/woven ottomans}

For years I used our shiplap display wall to display Christmas cards from family and friends but a few years ago I started using this wall to display our Santa pics.

Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)

I snapped this up close with my phone. We’ve taken a picture with Santa every year since Ellie was one! A little tradition I can’t quit because I love these pics so much. I watch my kids grow up right in front of my eyes on this wall every year! I try to create some sort of Christmas tree shape but it’s a little tricky because each year the configuration changes when we add a new picture. This year I started with the oldest pic on the bottom and made it the trunk. :)

Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)

This was my Santa picture wall last year. No trunk and I added a star ornament on top. See how it keeps changing?

This wall is tricky like that.

Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)

{graham plaid pillow/merry lumbar pillow – both on sale!}

Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)

Some of my favorites.. Addison wouldn’t stop crying so I gave her a bagel trying to distract her but she just cried harder with bread in her mouth. Ha. In 2010 we added our little buddy. That might be my favorite pic of all because I love the way Ellie is watching him. She was so excited to introduce Kole to Santa! I remember that day like it was yesterday.

Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)

Growing up and looking older..

Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)Santa Picture Wall (Sunny Side Up)

The Covid pic! A year to remember. I’m so glad we documented it with kids sitting on a bench 10 feet in front of Santa. Ha. Then last year.. my babies are looking so grown up. They humor me getting this picture taken every year because they know how much it means to me. I have a list of items to quickly grab if we ever have to evacuate for a fire and the Santa pics are my #1 item!

After the actual kids of course. :)

Christmas stairs (Sunny Side Up)

Across from the Santa pics are the stairs and I didn’t do much with them this year. I decorated them very last and was out of garland and out of energy. Ha. I just combined what was left of my favorite two garlands, added a little ribbon and done. (Didn’t even get to the top staircase!) I have some fun ideas for these stairs for next year. I’ll decorate them first and show them a little more love. :)

Christmas stairs (Sunny Side Up)

{faux cedar garland/similar garland in stock here & here/faux eucalyptus garland/khaki ribbon}

Christmas stairs (Sunny Side Up)

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

{pine hoop wreaths/woven jute runner/similar baskets}

Keep heading down the hall past our Santa pictures and you hit the mudroom! I added these cute pine hoop wreaths to each locker with a simple command hook. Looks so fun and festive! This woven jute runner is beautiful! Soft to walk on and I love how much it warms up this space.

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

So many fun things to do with wreaths! I linked some other fun options below.

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

{similar red throw here & here/velvet pillow/plaid pillow here & here/mini wreath}

A simple throw and favorite holiday pillows on my bench. Got my red fix in this room. :)

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

So many cute holiday pillows are on sale right now! Here are a few favorites marked down..



Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

{winter tree linen scroll/feathery pine tree}

I added more of my favorite feathery pine trees in this corner (they are also on sale!) and my winter tree linen scroll on the wall. Various shades of green? Absolutely.

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

I snapped this pic with my phone at night. Sometimes it’s easier to see at night in photos because this room gets a lot of light from different angles making it look shadowy in day time pictures. More garland over the doors! No wonder I ran out when I got to my stairs. :)

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

This picture is from last year. I used painters tape to put up our Christmas cards on these door frames and I’ll probably do the same thing this year.

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

There are three door frame options in this space so I have room to move to other doors if one fills up! I love having our holiday cards in this room because the garage door is right off of our mudroom so the second you walk into our house from the garage you see them all. Such a happy sight to walk into each day! I can’t wait until cards start coming in the mail. December is the one month of the year I volunteer to get our mail.. Kenny is on mail duty January through November when it’s mostly bills and junk. ;)

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

{similar swag here & here/similar runner}

Last year I put these swags on our lockers.

Christmas Mudroom (Sunny Side Up)

They were cute but I like these little hoop wreaths better for this space. I love holiday decorating. So fun to mix things up every year!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! It went by too quickly didn’t it!? I’m so happy I have one more full day of pie and Christmas pjs.

Monday I’ll hit the treadmill. Or maybe Tuesday.

Or maybe in January with the rest of the world.

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{kitchen sources}

Sharing some fun gift ideas for the people in your life who love to cook! Or for people in your life who are like me and don’t love to cook but do it sometimes anyway because you have a family who likes to eat. :)

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

Have you seen BEAUTIFUL by Drew Barrymore at Walmart? Beautiful is the perfect name for this line of cookware. Practical meets pretty! Each item comes in several colors including black. I love the white with gold details! So gorgeous to have sitting out in the kitchen.

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{portable blender/6 QT slow cooker}

Love this portable blender. A gift for my Addison this year because she loves to make anything that resembles a pink drink or refresher. :) The slow cooker is a gift to me from me! Aside from loving how stylish it is check this out. Lid on..

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

And lid off. This slow cooker has a lot of great features but the lid rest! Genius! It had me at hello.

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{extra large griddle}

We were so due for a new griddle and this is a beautiful option! It’s large (you can make LOTS of pancakes on this baby!) but also slim so it’s easy to store.

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{cast iron heart shaped dutch oven}

Is this not the cutest little heart shaped dutch oven!? My mom has a simmer pot recipe she always throws together this time of year to make the house smell good (I’ll have to share that soon!) and I was thinking this would be such a fun little pot to use for that. It’s perfect for treats in February too!

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{set of 3 bowls}

This is a nice set of mixing bowls which in my opinion always makes a great gift. (Love the colors!) I’ve given a set of mixing bowls for gifts in the past with some cute dish towels or wooden spoons. Items everyone can use!

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

These are just some of the fun items in this collection. There is also a beautiful hand mixer, blender, toaster, air fryer, etc. All perfect gift options!

Gift Ideas (Sunny Side Up)

{SOURCES}


I rounded up some other fun gift ideas from Walmart below! Fun options for women and teen girls (Addison loves the nail polish, hairdryer brush and the slipper socks – all gifts from a previous Christmas). :) I’ll share gift ideas for men/boys soon too!

Enjoy your Saturday! Is anyone else still stuffed and living in pj pants? Aside from pie we had tons of cheesecake left over from my holiday party and I legit feel like I could go a week without eating after everything I’ve downed this past week! Jeans are going to be tight for a while. Good thing I have lots of Christmas pjs to rotate right about now. :)

Christmas PJs and Gift Ideas!

Christmas pjs (Sunny Side Up)

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My crew is all back all together in one place so I got my wish for the holidays! We’ve had a great day at my moms with lots of family time. I can’t quit hugging Ellie! It feels so good to have her with us again. I would be so sad saying good-bye this weekend except that she’s out of school in two and a half weeks and coming home for Christmas. The BEST. We have big plans to make all the Christmas treats and to watch all the Christmas movies together. As if I needed one more thing to love this time of year more. I’m a happy mom. :)

Christmas pjs (Sunny Side Up)

{striped cozy sweatshirt/striped cozy jogger pants/ugg slippers}

El and I also plan on living in Christmas pajamas and I’ve found some cute options this year! These long time Target favorites are back in stock! I love them so much I bought a pair for my mom, sister, sister in law, daughters and niece too. They are so comfy and soft! (*wearing xs in the top and small in the pants.)

Christmas pjs (Sunny Side Up)

{plaid flannel pj set/henley top/ugg slippers}

These plaid flannel pants are also fun for the season! They come with tops in lots of different color combos and are on major sale. I don’t love to sleep in button up tops so I always look for a henley to pair with my pjs. This henley comes in lots of colors and is a great pj staple! (*wearing xs in the top and small in the pants.. xs pants would have fit better but they didn’t have them at my store so I went with a baggy fit on these. I would recommend going one size down in these pants.)

Christmas pjs (Sunny Side Up)

{santa pjs/similar red henley/ugg slippers/santa pjs baby/santa kids/santa men}

These santa pants are too cute. They come in other fun prints and are a great fit. They also come in versions for the whole family I linked above. Bring on all things santa! It’s officially time. :) (*wearing xs in the top and pants)

Christmas pjs (Sunny Side Up)

{waffle sleep henley/satin sleep pants/ugg slippers}

These satin pants are so silky and soft! The henley I’m wearing with them is cropped but it works with these pants because they are high waisted. So cute.. these are definitely favorites this year! (*wearing xs in the top and pants)

Christmas pjs (Sunny Side Up)

{grateful pajama top/pajama pants/ugg slippers}

My hair is covering a lot of this pj top but it says grateful. Really soft and cozy and I love it paired with these cozy inexpensive pajama pants! (*wearing xs in the top and small in the pants.)

Christmas pjs (Sunny Side Up)

{softrib metallic turtleneck/AG jeans/similar boots}

Ok.. not pjs but when I found my flannel pants at Gap I found two cute turtlenecks. I’ve been wearing and loving them both and they are also marked down this weekend. This metallic turtleneck is soft and causal but because of the metallic print you could really dress it up for a holiday party. I love the material! Really soft and comfortable to wear and just a touch of shine.

Christmas pjs (Sunny Side Up)

{softrib turtleneck/AG jeans/similar boots}

This soft turtleneck is also great and what I wore today for Thanksgiving. It comes in other colors and I just ordered the black because it’s marked down so low this weekend!

I’ve rounded up some fun gift ideas for teens, family, friends, etc. along with a few holiday favorites below. So many crazy good sales this weekend! I shared fun GIFTS FOR HER in this post and most of the items I shared in that post are also marked down. I’m excited to do some on-line Christmas shopping for family and friends. I totally avoid the stores on Black Friday! Happy to take advantage of the sales from my couch in my Christmas pjs. Add some popcorn and a cheesy Hallmark movie and I’m set for life.

Happy Black Friday friends! Enjoy the shopping and pie. :)

Christmas in the Kitchen

Christmas in the Kitchen (Sunny Side Up)

{black hanover pendants/eloise woven counter stools/small wreaths/similar small wreaths}

Christmas in the kitchen! It’s always such a fun place to add some holiday cheer isn’t it!? Everyone hangs out in the kitchen and I love adding greenery and favorite decor to warm things up and make people want to hang out here even more. :) I’m so happy to have you all over for a little tour of this space!

Christmas in the Kitchen (Sunny Side Up)

{faux cedar garland/faux eucalyptus garland/over the mantel mirror}

This year I stuck with my tried and true garland combo for over my cooktop. I just wrapped one cedar garland with one eucalyptus garland (on sale at the moment!) and it creates a beautiful combo. This is actually 4 pieces of garland (2 wrapped on each side) on my shelf.

Christmas in the Kitchen (Sunny Side Up)

{antiqued metal tray/black cheese board/tan bottle brush trees/brass salt mill/brass pepper mill (both on sale!)/similar wood stand/similar utensil crock/serving set}

Then I just added a little Christmas cheer here and there with cute bottlebrush trees..

{similar marble cake stand/fresh balsam candle/driftwood/candle snuffer}

and fresh balsam holiday candles. :)

Christmas in the Kitchen (Sunny Side Up)

{metal house village set/black metal houses/dark brown bottle brush trees/tan bottle brush trees/tree board/round pizza paddle/rectangle board/similar hoop wreath}

I added my cute black metal houses on my shelf too (they light up so pretty at night!) and my beloved Christmas tree board and hoop wreath against my backsplash. And yes.. I move the wreath when I cook. Believe me.. my house could be up in flames in no time given my track record with the cooktop! We take no chances around here.

Christmas in the Kitchen (Sunny Side Up)

But cooking woes aside.. this section of the kitchen is looking festive. :)

I’m slightly obsessed with tree boards in case you couldn’t tell! They are so much fun to decorate with and then to pull out and use when entertaining.

Cute decor but also holiday party essentials!

Did I buy this nottaway chandelier in the summer picturing it with greenery hanging over it in the winter?

Why yes. Yes I did. :)

{faux cedar garland/tennessee wreath}

I used a command hook to hang a wreath on this window and I’ve loved the look!

Christmas in the Kitchen (Sunny Side Up)

Time to curl up on this couch and enjoy some down time. This time of year is so crazy but I’m determined to carve out a few family movie nights! The best.

Enjoy Thanksgiving prep! I hope you are all spending the holiday with loved ones exactly how you want to spend it! Given my track record in the kitchen I’ll be in charge of the usual with my family.. setting the table and entertaining the kids.

Also the best. I’ll take it.

Merry Christmas Porch (and coffee table decor!)

{affiliate links used} 

holiday party (Sunny Side Up)

Happy Thanksgiving week! I’m sending safe travel wishes your way if you are traveling! This past week was so busy so I’m going to be playing catch up.. I have so much to share! I had my holiday party Wednesday night. I decided to throw it early this year because our December was already looking full in October (this time of year is crazy isn’t it!?) plus I thought having my party before Thanksgiving would give me a deadline and force me to get my Christmas decor up quickly! Well.. it worked. But wow.. many nights last week I was up until 3 am to get it all done. It’s one thing to have the house decorated. It’s another thing to have the house decorated with all bins and boxes put away and everything clean and party ready! I didn’t really take that into account.. ha. But it all got done and you can tell from the picture above that the party was a success. ;) It was both a Thanksgiving and Christmas party and I will share details on how I pulled that off soon!

Green Christmas Porch (Sunny Side Up)

For now I’m kicking off the week with my green Merry Christmas porch!

Green Christmas Porch (Sunny Side Up)

{faux cypress tree/feathery pine trees/black metal lanterns}

Very similar to last year’s porch because I just can’t quit my trees! They make me so happy.. all that green. :) The feathery pine trees are all throughout the inside of my house again too. They are perfect for a console table, mantel, corner of a room. I’m thrilled they are still in stock!

Green Christmas Porch (Sunny Side Up)

{gold beaded garland/similar gold beaded garland/gold mercury ornaments/similar black bells}

I added a few ornaments to my long time favorite faux cypress treessimple gold ornaments that I also used on my living room tree and little black bells. I’m thinking I’ll add some twinkle lights too!

Green Christmas Porch (Sunny Side Up)

Green Christmas Porch (Sunny Side Up)

{faux cypress door swag/similar bells}

I mixed up my door a little this year with this fun faux cypress door swag. I actually bought it thinking I would use it on the mirror over my family room mantel but held it up on my front door just to see how it looked and knew I found its new home! It has a loop on the back so I just used a black command hook to hang it. Then I added the bells (just looped them over the stem at the top). You could dress it up so many ways! Ribbon would be pretty too.

Green Christmas Porch (Sunny Side Up)

 {black metal lanterns/jute rug/green fringe rug}

I usually just use my black metal lanterns on my porch for Halloween but I keept them out for Christmas too this year. They came out with these lanterns in a pretty gold also! Love these lanterns. I’ve had them for around 6 years now. One of those items that never date and always look good! I have real candles in them but I want to get these flamless pillar candles I use on my fireplace mantel. Then they will click on around 5 each night and I don’t have to worry about them starting my house on fire. Always a bonus. :) I used my same jute rug I’ve used all year and added a pop of green. Because never enough green around here!

Green Christmas Porch (Sunny Side Up)

{faux cedar garland/similar garland in stock here & here}

I used the same garland for my porch and added a Merry Christmas banner to tie in the gold. And to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. :)

Green Christmas Porch (Sunny Side Up)

This was my porch last year.. just a few simple changes! Same trees but different rugs and bells on the door instead of the swag.

coffee table decor (Sunny Side Up)

{FAMILY ROOM SOURCES}

{eileen coffee table/brass metal nesting tray – 26″/swift oval serving tray/lowell wooden tree candles/sisal bottle brush trees/driftwood bowl filler}

In other decor news.. when I recently shared my family room holiday decor I hadn’t really styled my coffee table. This is how it ended up and I’m obsessed with these trees! Anthro for the win. Every time. :) These bottle brush trees are beautiful and come in so many fun colors (I just stuck with neutrals to tie in with my Christmas tree). The wooden trees are actually candles.. so much fun to take the tops off and light them! Then I just added some driftwood bowl filler and greenery in my cute little oval serving tray.

coffee table decor (Sunny Side Up)

A view from above. :) This brass metal nesting tray is huge! It comes in 3 sizes and this is the largest. The small size would be fun on a kitchen island. I love gold/brass trays.. especially during the holidays.

Anthro is having a huge HOME sale.. 30% off most of their home items including the trees above! So so good! It adds the discount in your on-line cart. This sale was just too good to not share. I rounded up some fun Antro gift ideas and holiday favorites below! Plus my favorite holiday candle.. the best this time of year. A close friend of mine just got a job at Anthro and honestly if I could work at one store that would probably be it! Well.. it’s tied with The Container Store. I could spend all day in both. What store would you choose to work in if you could just pick one? Or in my case.. two. ;)

You’ll see this candle in my kitchen decor soon.. my favorite this time of year. It looks like the small size sold out but the medium and large are both in stock and on sale.. you just have to click on the size you want. Such a great gift idea too!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

{pajama sleep set}

Sharing some fun winter fashion from Walmart today! Whether you want to be cozy at home or need something fancy for a holiday party, I’ve rounded up some fun options at great prices! Kicking things off with this cute pair of holiday pjs because as you know.. that’s my #1 go to this time of year. :) This pajama sleep set is so cute and incredibly soft! It doesn’t come in my size so I’m wearing one size up and they are a little baggy but I love that.. makes them the best pjs for after Thanksgiving dinner. ;) They come in lots of patterns and would make a great gift too!

*Sidenote.. Walmart also has the best cozy Christmas socks! I stock up for teen girl gift bags every year and then El, Addison and I live in them through November and December. :)

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

{plush sleep robe}

Speaking of being cozy with my girls.. :) These robes! Addison and I give them a 10 out of 10! They are so incredibly soft and comfortable. Like the pjs above they come in lots of fun patterns too. They would make a great gift but you’re also going to want one for yourself. It’s like wearing a cozy blanket! We’ve had such a cold week (for us) here in San Diego and I’m so happy to have this to just wear over my pjs around the house. We are wimps when it comes to cold weather! So meet my new coat blanket.. ha. :)

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

Love her. :) We ordered one for El too. She is in serious cold weather for college and needs this even more than we do!

Winter Fashion (Sunny Side Up)

{reversible quilted vest/sam edelman boots}

This green quilted vest is another recent Walmart favorite that is keeping me warm! I love that it cinches around the waist. The boots I bought last year and they are half off right now! So cute and comfortable.

{faux leather moto jacket/sam edelman boots}

This faux leather moto jacket is another favorite and was just marked down! So cute. Green! It’s always a good choice. :)

My little buddy is set for cooler weather too with this long sleeve top! I’m grateful for him this month.. he keeps us all laughing around here. :)

I’ll share fun options for boys soon too. I also rounded up some fun clothes for men because they can be hard to shop for! Then I ended the post with some dining options because I couldn’t resist!

Christmas Family Room

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{eileen coffee table/chunky wool jute rug}

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a good weekend so far! My Christmas family room (including the mantel!) is done and things are finally feeling more festive and less messy around here. There is still some mess of course, but I’m getting there! I was so scattered with my decorating this year. For a while every room had been started and nothing had been finished. I’ve been trying to make myself finish one space completely before moving on to the next! I’m still going to switch out my coffee table decor but this will work for now and other than that my family room is finished!

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{brass lanterns/flamless pillar candles/brass arched mirror/antique brass candle holders/faux cedar garland/

similar faux cedar garland here & here/cable knit faux fur pillow/sherpa tree pillow}

My mantel looks similar to past years. This fireplace is HUGE and takes a lot of garland. I tried mixing a few different garlands for my mantel, but ended up liking it just simple the best with my favorite faux cedar garland (I linked similar options above!). I used the 9 foot garlands and I used 5 for this mantel. I gave both sides a swoop for a fun change.

I’m tricky like that. :)

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

My brass lanterns are my favorite during this time of year.. they click on every night around 5:00 and give such a nice warm glow! Every year I think about mixing it up and moving them somewhere else but I just know I’ll miss having them in this room too much! This room is where we spend the most time and I love watching movies with the candles on.

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{brass lanterns/flamless pillar candles}

This isn’t a great pic (it’s a screenshot of a video I shared on IG two years ago!) but it shows the sizes of candles I have. They really are so beautiful in person!

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{khaki velvet ribbon/similar handknit stockings/hanging bells here & here}

You can see in this picture the large command hook I used for my garland (I had one on each end and one in the middle). Then I also use that end hook for stockings, ribbon, bells.. anything I want hanging on the side. :)

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

{all tree sources}

I used the same khaki ribbon that I used on my tree (just a wider size) to tie everything together. (Sidenote – my Christmas tree went on early access sale today and sold out but the 7″ is still in stock! So is this flocked version. My friend has the flocked tree and it’s beautiful too!) 

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

My console table got a little holiday re-fresh too!

{feathery pine tree/bronze sculpted reindeer}

My cute skinny deer – I love them too much! I set them next to one of my favorite faux trees.

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{feathery pine trees in 3 sizes}

You might remember these from last year. I still couldn’t love them more and they are back and still in stock this year! I used them on my porch again and all around the house. :)

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{black winter tree scroll/tapered jar/gold leaf stems/metal serving tray/glitter stars/round ornaments}

On the right I hung my favorite scroll with a small command hook and then placed some ornaments in this pretty serving tray. I found a package of round Target ornaments with fall colors that work with my Christmas decor this year and spread them out here and there. I also landed on these pretty gold leaf stems at Target and they were perfect for a vase on the console table! I love that (like my leafy glam garland in my tree) I can use them in the fall and the winter.

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{similar console table/similar baskets}

Woodsy glam just like the tree! I guess it’s a thing. :)

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{light up birch trees/brass tray/vintage bell swag/*coffee table sources – brass metal nesting tray – 26″/glazed terracotta vase/swift oval serving tray}

Ignore all of my vases at the bottom of my skinny table.. I set them there while I was decorating! Like I said.. there is still some mess happening around here! But my light-up birch trees are out and I’m hoping to clear all messes by this Tuesday. I gave myself a deadline. Wish me luck with that one. :)

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{leather decorative boxes/black bowl/round ornaments/bryn vase/bottle brush tree here & here/metal easel frame/bottle knit throw}

Simple shelf styling. A few bottlebrush trees and some ornaments in a bowl and bam.. it feels like Christmas. :)  (Other favorite bottle brush trees are in this post.)

Here’s a quick look at the pillows in this space too!

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{reed striped lumbar pillow/similar velvet pillow/tree knit pillow}

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

{similar velvet pillow/cable knit faux fur pillow/marled faux fur blanket}

My family loves this new faux fur blanket I shared earlier! Kenny and Ad both race to it each night. It’s warm and fuzzy on one side and soft and silky on the other. I love the rich color and texture for decorating! So good. I just ordered a couple more for gifts!

Christmas Family Room Mantel (Sunny Side Up)

These bells in the corner of my table are also beautiful if you still need bells! They are HEAVY and such nice quality. I was going to hang them but might just leave them out displayed like this on the table.

That’s it for a quick family room tour! Like I said, things are still a work in progress but it feels so good to have this space pretty much checked off the list! Have you started your Christmas decorating yet? I’m getting so excited for Thanksgiving. We get to see Ellie! Counting down the days over here.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll be back soon!

I’m tricky like that.

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (and favorite holiday pillows!)

*affiliate links used

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

{norway faux spruce tree/woven tree skirt/chunky wool jute rug}

It’s looking pretty festive at my house and my family room tree is ready for the holidays! I’m so excited about how it turned out and I hope you love it too!

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

Every time I put up a Christmas tree I just wish I could have one up ALL YEAR LONG. There is nothing like the lights of a Christmas tree! I’m calling my holiday decor this year “woodsy glam.” Lots of greens, browns, and blacks that create a woodsy vibe, but when I added this gorgeous leafy garland and other gold accents the glam came out to play. :)

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

The past few years I have really loved having “less” on my tree. I love to add some sort of garland and a few types of ornaments, but I like to see a lot of the tree and keep it simple. Less is more for me when it comes to tree decorating these days!

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

I used the same gold beaded garland that I put on last year’s tree and the same glitter star ornaments (they have been favorites for several years now!). The round textured ornaments I bought last year and they sold out in early October this year, but these are a similar look in gold and silver. I used 4 of the leafy garlands on this tree. (Two around the largest part of the tree at the bottom and then two singles for the middle and top). Each garland has batteries and a timer so you can set the garland lights to come on when your tree lights click on. Kenny set all of my trees on timers last year (I can control them with my phone too) and it was seriously the best gift he could have given me! I told my girls.. “marry a man who sets your trees on timers for you.” Ha. My sage advice. ;) Really the reason it meant so much to me is because he isn’t even into Christmas trees! He’d be fine if we never put one up and just did it because he knows how much I love them. It made me so happy. :)

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

{khaki velvet ribbon/black velvet ribbon}

I also added some velvet ribbon this year! Khaki and black. I just cut pieces and tied them on the branches. No bows.. just a simple tie. Like I said.. simple speaks to me.

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

{glitter gold star tree topper}

I placed my beloved gold star tree topper on top and done! I’ll get some night shots when I photograph the rest of this room. This week has been so busy! I didn’t have time for many pics but wanted to take a few of this tree during the day to share. The only thing about my “woodsy glam” decor in my main rooms this year is that there isn’t any red! You all know how much I love red during the holidays. :) I’m going to have to decorate a few red rooms to get my red fix this year. Luckily it’s only mid November.

Lots of time left to keep decorating!

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

I pulled out all of my holiday pillows this week and wow.. I have a few. Ha. :) I looked through all of them and a few stood out as pillows that I tend to use year after year after year. You will recognize most of these! They are pillows that stand the test of time and seem to work with any and all decor. First are my cable knit fur faux pillows. These pillows are a splurge but they are GORGEOUS in person and they are HUGE! They are also incredibly soft and have the best texture with the knit in the middle and the fur on the sides. I’ve had them for years. They work with everything and always look fabulous! I also love that I can use them through February (perfect “winter” vibes). My next favorite is the everywhere velvet pillow. I have and love the hunter green but these velvet pillows come in lots of colors! A perfect soft and gorgeous neutral and I love velvet during the holidays. I also found these that are similar for less if you don’t want to pay PB’s price. My fa la la pillow from last year will absolutely become a tried and true favorite. Just a touch of red adds  the perfect Christmas accent to any room. Plus it just makes me happy. :) And of course my merry pillow. Wow I think I’ve had this pillow for almost 10 years now! Another holiday staple I use every year that looks good any and everywhere. (I have a love a lot of PB’s merry collection! TOO much fun). :)

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

{conell lumbar pillow/conell 20″ square pillow}

This beautiful pillow with black trees is new this year and I’m obsessed! I needed something with black to tie everything together on my family room couch and when I saw this it was love at first sight. The trees add the woodsy vibe and the mountains remind me of my childhood in Utah. PERFECTION. :) It comes in a square size too!

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

Of course you all know and remember my velvet sherpa tree pillow! I usually have it in my bedroom but I’m using it in my family room this year. Another staple that I use again and again because it always looks so good with any holiday decor! The tree and ornaments on it add so much texture. It’s a beautiful pillow and this year PB came out with a matching stocking! The green loops tree pillow is another favorite because of its texture and how well it works with everything, but the green sold out! It does come in a red and grey though and at the moment they are still in stock.

Woodsy Glam Christmas Tree (Sunny Side Up)

Like I said (and as you know!) I’ve bought a lot of holiday pillows through the years and love them all! But I wanted to share my top picks that make the cut every single Nov/Dec. These are the pillows that have been money well spent!

Not that every pillow isn’t money well spent (let’s not be silly!).. but these especially.

I’ve shared my travel favorites so many times but I’m sharing them again because they make perfect gifts!  This double layer make-up travel bag is my #1!   It holds EVERYTHING.  I love that I can lay larger products in the middle and keep smaller bottles upright on the side.

There is also another zipper compartment on top for make-up brushes and other items. I love the transparent cover to keep make-up brushes clean too. Plus it has a strap and is easy to carry. WINNER!

This electronic organizer is another favorite!  Perfect to hold all of your charging cords, camera items, pens, a mouse, your phone.. whatever you need. Would make a great gift!

Travel bags/Amazon Prime (Sunny Side Up)

If you prefer a good hanging bag this toiletry bag on the left is a great option.  It also holds a lot and has elastics that help keep products upright.  I also really like this travel make-up organizer.  Similar to my favorite bag with a separate spot for brushes on top.  It also has dividers that you can move and customize.

Sephora gift sets are also always a hit (especially with teen girls.. my girls love them!) Olaplex is my current favorite for hair care so I ordered a couple of these sets for gifts and to just have on hand here!

1- mask collection   2- favorite must have set   3- lip care set   4- skincare essentials kit

5- brush set   6-advent calendar   7-  sephora mini mania   8- hair care set

My girls love #2 – it’s a round-up of Sephora faovorites and they love trying new products! They have found a lot of favorites from that gift set I get them each year. We also love Sephora make-up brushes!

Lots of fun items.. I hope this was helpful! Enjoy the rest of your day. :)

xoxo, Erin
