Have you ever had a particular image in your mind? Maybe an idea for a look or style that you wanted… Like that perfect Christmas tree covered with gorgeous handmade snowflakes. You guessed it…that was the image I had in my mind when I began planning my holiday decor this year. I could see it…
I’m so excited to be sharing my Christmas Home Tour for 2014 and to be joining a group of other bloggers in the Home for the Holidays blog tour. Throughout the month of December, I’ve been sharing bits and pieces of my Christmas Decor with some tips and tutorials to go along with them. Today, I’m sharing everything…from the front door to the top of the tree.
There are trends that everyone just absolutely loves. There are also trends that are classic and look great in a variety of decor. Such as, the chalkboard trend. It’s been around for a while and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere… Why would it? It’s great. Whatever style of home you have, you can make a chalkboard work.
How’s it going? I’m not sure about you, but the holiday season has really snuck up on me! This past Sunday, I hosted a Christmas party for the ladies at my church. About three days before that, it dawned on me…”the party is THIS Sunday!” Talk about getting in gear with party planning and decorating…what a weekend!
One of my favorite projects of all time is the set of DIY Photo Collage Letters that I created for my daughter’s graduation party. I wanted to have a photo board at the party, but I wanted something different and special. It was perfect for her party, which lead me to the idea of using the same concept in my Christmas decor.
How do you welcome people home for the holidays? Do you hang a wreath on the door or put candles in the windows? Maybe you string lights along the landscaping. Each year I try to create a warm and welcoming outdoor scene for Christmas. I want my friends and family to get a little Christmas spirit before they even walk through the front door.
Today’s a big day. It’s my birthday! Let’s not discuss the number, but relish on the fact that today is my special day. There won’t be balloons or even a cake, but it’s my day…and I’ll take it… ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’m also participating in the 12 Days of Christmas with a group of amazing bloggers.
Have you ever had a dream? Specifically a dream about having the perfect decorative piece for your home. I’m talking about the one thing that would make the room complete. Or the one simple thing that would be ideal…if you could only find it. I’m referring to the absolute…without a doubt…best tree skirt for my Christmas tree.
