Let’s be honest, my holiday decor has been up ALL OF NOVEMBER. This year, we decided to decorate before Thanksgiving because I love all the twinkling lights and cozy feeling of having everything decorated for Christmas. This was a transformation for outside and inside. We previously had our Halloween Decor up and wanted to transition that to Holiday. Obviously the pumpkins had to go bye bye (which Otis was sad about!) but I wanted to keep and rework the Pottery Barn lanterns into our decor. The flickering candles are just so pretty at night. I have been wanting to get some planters so this was a great opportunity to get some bigger neutral toned planters to fill with Christmas inspired colors and plants. We picked up the poinsettias and tree at Home Depot along with some rocks to put in the bottom of the planters. The rocks in the bottom hoist up the planters to the perfect height. Love the pop of red that matches our “MERRY” doormat. Our wreath and garland are great since they come cordless and I just put batteries in and set their timer to come on each day.
For inside, I pulled out the Pottery Barn stockings I bought last year and this time hung them on my tv unit with these command hooks. The command hooks were a brilliant hack to hang my stockings and not worry about Otis knocking some the stocking holders and getting hurt. Also the hooks are clear and I can take them off easily when the Holidays are over. A new addition this year are the twinkle lights. I AM OBSESSED. I wanted to keep everything lit with twinkle lights and still pretty clean and modern so these twinkle trees are the perfect addition. The clear glass cloche trees were a great neutral add on to my table top. I lit them with led candles and then weaved a twinkle light string behind everything. I also have flameless candles (that I have owned for years and still going strong) set with batteries and timers which give a nice little ambiance as well. This year I finally got a tree collar for our artificial Christmas tree and I think it classes it up a lot. Also since our tree is flocked, it tends to drop messy pieces around so the collar is easy to vacuum around!
I also bought these Santa mugs this year which both me and Otis are loving. They aren’t overly big so they fit my morning coffee perfectly. Otis’ mug is filled with whipped cream. He is living the dream!! His little Christmas truck toy set and trees is the cutest and I just love seeing his face light up with smiles. These family photos make me so happy. Love seeing Otis’ smile!! Also, many marshmallows were used for the making of these photos. Happy Toddler = Happy Parents.
