This is my most favorite time of the year! Not only for the cookies, parties, gingerbread houses and more cookies….but to me Christmas is about family and friends cozy in a warm home with lots of good food and the glow of a crackling fire. Hello Currier and Ives:) I know a lot of people get stressed out about entertaining during the holidays but I think it’s a no brainer. Every room in your house will look better with a little Christmas magic in it! Also, a little Christmas~ing is the best way to cover up those “not yet gotten to” holes in your decorating plan. No curtains on the living room windows? Throw up a glistening evergreen and no one will even know the difference! No fabulous wall art? Pin up a wreath with a great red linen bow!

My newest Christmas love….boxwood ~ wreaths, garland, cuttings. It just looks unique in a sea of pine:)
Happy decorating!
Ho! Ho! Ho!
I love wreaths on windows!

Perfect for that spot of above the mantle that has been empty all year!
Simple and glittery

Love this way to bring color into the foyer.
