Merry Christmas!

In celebration of Christmas, I am sharing a few more pictures of the decor around my house. My secret to cheap and easy Christmas decorating is….balls – Christmas balls, that is! I buy cheap Christmas balls and other tree ornaments and fill bowls, vases, and candleholders with them all over my house. They look fabulous and festive!

I am also a big fan of boxwood for the holiday season. I purchased these wreaths from Target for 50% off. I looped them together with a silver ribbon and hung the top one with a clear 3M hook.

I couldn’t help but share one last picture. This is the same stocking that I’ve had since I was a little girl. It barely fits any stuffers, but I am so attached to it – I’ll never get rid of it!

Merry Christmas!

I hope that you and your family stay healthy and happy this holiday season! I have some big news to share in the new year…really BIG news so stay tuned!

Christmas Outdoors

I do Christmas planters each year to make my front entrance a little more festive. They are easy to put together and everything in them is artificial so they can be used year after year. Here’s a breakdown of what’s in them and where I got it from:
  • The long silver sticks, glittery branches, and glittery silver balls (lol – I don’t know what else to call them!) are from Homesense.
  • The silk amaryllis flowers are from Pier 1.
  • The green branches/pinecones are from Michaels (I use three per pot).
I just stick everything in the soil that’s leftover from my summer pots from tallest to shortest – easy peasy! I might “branch” out and do something new next year. We’ll see if inspiration hits!

The last couple years I’ve also ordered a fresh balsam fir wreath (all the way from Nova Scotia!) which is the closest thing to a real Christmas tree in my house. It smells amazing! I added some silver ribbon and attached some leftover Christmas ornaments with wire to match the planters.
