Happy Monday, my sweet friends. Can you even believe that Christmas is three short weeks away? Crazy right!? I have a confession to make. I haven’t even started my shopping yet. Every year I usually have it all done by Black Friday, but this year I am majorly slacking! I need to get on it! Shopping for all the kiddos in my family is seriously my favorite thing ever, so I’m looking forward to it! And as Christmas gets closer and closer I am getting more and more excited to spend it with all our family and do as many festive holiday things as possible.
Thanksgiving is over and it’s officially time to pull out all of the Christmas decor and really go to town! I hope you all had a wonderful week with your family eating way too much food and celebrating everything there is to be thankful for over this holiday season! Like I mentioned in my last post, I decorated for Christmas a few weeks early this year and I don’t regret it for a second! I have absolutely loved having my Christmas tree out during Thanksgiving, but now I am looking forward to seeing all of the ways you all decorate yours! This year my whole theme is very rustic with neutral colors, so today I’m sharing my Neutral Rustic Christmas Tree, and I hope you all love it!
It’s my first official Christmas post and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Before blogging I was one of those people who wouldn’t even think about hauling out the boxes and boxes of Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving. Obviously things have changed, and honestly I am pretty happy that I get to enjoy the festive look in my house for a few weeks longer than usual! And I have to say, I am really loving the theme I have going this year. I chose to not use any traditional red and went strictly green, wood tones, pops of white with a ton of natural elements and it worked out so so well. So to start off I’m sharing my Rustic Christmas Entryway!
As a blogger I have learned time and time again that creativity tends to strike best when you are recycling old projects and shopping your own supply for something new. More times than not I go to the store and cannot find a single thing that peaks my interest, so I am left to be the true DIY’er that I am, and make it myself. This little Farmhouse Fall Mini Wreath is exactly one of those projects!
Head back over to A Blissful Nest and see what supplies I used and get the full tutorial and tips on how to create your own mini wreath! And not just for fall, but for any upcoming holiday!
Finally. Cooler weather has come to St. Louis and I am so so happy! I still cannot believe it took this long to feel like autumn, but better late than never I suppose! November is already flying by and before we know it, it will be time to eat turkey and pumpkin pie with all the ones we love most! And I cannot wait! To help with a little Thanksgiving Day inspiration, my sweet friend Deb from Seeking Lavender Lane asked myself and six other awesome bloggers to share our table ideas with you all! This Rustic Fall Tablescape is a little different than my Farmhouse Fall Tablescape that I posted last week. It’s a bit more causal with richer fall colors, and of course, some flannel!
It’s November, which means I can smell Thanksgiving just right around the corner! It’s hard to even wrap my head around with the weather here in St. Louis still being so warm. Summer seems to be holding on tight, and I am so so ready for it to let go! I love to cozy up my house for the cold winters and it’s a challenge when I still have the windows open and am debating turning on the air conditioning (whomp whomp). Hopefully that changes soon, and when Thanksgiving comes the weather will be just as it should be!
In the meantime, I have some pretty great things to share with you all today! I teamed up with nine of my favorite bloggers to bring you lots and lots of Autumn and Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas! These ladies are just pure talent and I can’t wait for you to see their lovely set ups! And if one of them sent you here for the first time, I am so thankful you stopped by to visit my little blog! Huge thanks to Kelly from Live Laugh Rowe and Jenn from My Fabuless Life for putting together such a fun blog hop and inviting me to be a part of it!
