It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…

The Christmas songs are playing, the decorations are up, LET CHRISTMAS BEGIN! Todd is a bit of a Grinch when it comes to timing of anything Christmas related. The day after Thanksgiving is the minimum date that has to pass before he will agree to anything that has to do with December 25th. I mostly agree with him, but he takes his stance pretty seriously. This year I was able to get the sanction lifted early since it looked like he wouldn’t be home for much of December and he reluctently agreed to let me decorate last weekend instead. I fed him wine and snacks and I think that helped my case.
This is Mac’s first Christmas with us and he was very interested in the tree (and by “interested” I mean that he made himself the official tree inspector and climbed up into the branches for a closer look).
I still love these diamond ornaments that I made last year, they make me so happy!My favorite Christmas decor item is still this light up sign I made last year. It makes the living room feel so much more magical and cozy when it’s lit. I highly recommend making one if you haven’t and you can store it to use for several Christmases to come. Also, that pom-pom garland is a DIY from last year too.As you can see, snacks are key to persuading people…I also made these leather stockings last year too. Man, I reused so many things, I hardly had to make anything!Now that we are all decorated for Christmas we can sit back, turn the fireplace on, and relax our way to December 25th. Perhaps I’ll add in a cup of Nutella hot chocolate? Happy decorating!

    This looks absolutely stunning! I love the while and gold, and your top! Definitely getting around to some of those DIYs this year now that we have officially moved!

    I love your gold and white theme! Everything looks so beautiful! That light up sign is so awesome. I’m going to have to look at that tutorial now and see if I can do it!
