Merry Christmas everyone!
This is one of my favourite weeks of the year. Besides the last minute rush-around…that’s brutes. The excitement from the kids for the big day is priceless. They’re filled with so much hope and belief in all the magic – it’s contagious. Here is a peak at our home this year (you can see the past few years here and here). I know yours is decorated beautifully. Decorating for the holidays takes a lot of time but it’s so worth it. Don’t you feel so happy sitting on your couch with a warm drink staring at your gorgeous tree? It brings home my belief that you feel fabulous when you’re surrounded by a home you love.
Here’s a few photos of how the décor looks at our house this year. I'm sorry I don't have time to photograph the basement Christmas decor or the upstairs but it's a peak. Don’t forget to scroll to the end, I have a fun giveaway that you wont be able to use this year (seeing how I’m super late) but will look oh-so-fun next year on your front lawn!
Remember how I showed you our mantle in November? I really loved it but with all the different ways to decorate, I decided to switch it up a few weeks ago - home design obsessed!
If you’re looking for a delicious last minute treat, then I recommend my Nana’s Nuts ‘n Bolts. They’re my favourite!
Want to your house to smell fabulous? Try this.
This pin is a popular one from a few years ago over on Pinterest if you want to add some red to your decor.
Need a last minute wreath? This is an easy DIY!
Good luck with all your last minute hustle and bustle. For those of you out there that haven't received our Christmas cards...they're on their way. I might have been on the ball to order them but sending them out has been another story. Yikes! Ah well.
Don't forget the outside! This is Mr. Fix-It's favourite part about decorating for the holidays. Total Griswold! When your kids are little, you just need to go with it. The giant santa was painted by my dad and has been on my parent's roof since I was a little girl. Santa now hangs at our house. Olaf is a new addition. Remember the countertop wine fridge that I talked about last year? We love it! I ordered Olaf from the same company, Hammacher Schlemmer and the kids went nuts! They ship to Canada and the service and products are fantastic. Olaf is 8 feet, happy and adorable.
Want to win this adorable guy for your front lawn decor next year? If you live in Ottawa, I can deliver it to you and you can add it to your lawn just in time for the big man in red to arrive!! Just leave me a comment below and the winner will be chosen on Friday! FUN! Do you wanna build a snowman?
Keep it Beautiful and Merry Christmas lovelies!
