Holiday season is easily the best time of the year. My only "issue" with it is time goes too fast. Over the weekend we started to decorate our new home with Christmas cheer, so I thought I'd share what we have so far with all of you today.
I picked up these Christmas stocking lights at the Target $1-$3 spot and absolutely love them. I am still looking for the perfect addition to top our bar area but this is what we have so far.
I found these Kate Spade place mats at TJ Maxx last week and instantly fell in love. Unfortunately they only had one set so I had to offset the them with another Kate Spade place mat set I found. I made the center piece with gold and red glitter ornaments we've had forever, just to keep everything in a similar color scheme.
My office/guest room also got a touch of the Christmas spirit with some lights. I do plan on keeping these up year round because I love the soft lighting, I find it peaceful while working.
With limited storage space in our current home we decided to go with a real tree this year. It was the first time Eddie and I had ever had to string lights and it was a big challenge for us both. We laughed as we attempted to make our tree look somewhat presentable, definitely something we will remember for many years to come.
Max and Chance didn't want to be left out so they both modeled my Santa hat. I think the pink suites them well, don't you?
I am still working on finding the perfect place for our stockings. In our last apartment we had the most beautiful fireplace, which made hanging them a no-brainer but this year it is taking a little more creativity.
If anyone has any ideas of how to hang stockings without any sort of mantle, I'd love to hear them!
