Go ahead and call me crazy...

I sorta went overboard with decorating for the holidays this year. I usually like a serene, clutter free home, so spending 3 days putting holiday decor up was intense.


It started innocently enough...a traditional tree in our great room.


Then, the mantle got a little sparkle. I usually put up snowmen on my mantle that belonged to my mom. However, I've never been a huge fan of them, as they along with other holiday creatures like penguins and santas seem a little cluttered and not my style at all. So, I decided to keep it simple with greenery, pine cones and bits of red.





Next up, our second tree in our formal great room. This silver/white tree is my absolute favorite. It can be seen from out front window and seeing it glow as I pull up every night makes me smile.


My favorite ornament of all time is this angel ornament that belonged to my great-grandmother. The vintage sweet face is precious.


So, you might be thinking that 2 Christmas trees isn't too crazy, right? Well on a recent trip to Target, I decided to pick up a skinny, simple $20 tree for our bedroom.

That's right...we have 3 Christmas trees currently up in our house. Justin says it looks like Christmas exploded in our home...I say I'm just really in the holiday spirit this year.

I used simple bronze ornaments hung with cream colored ribbon that I got on Target's after-Christmas sale last year.

I used leftover fabric from my DIFFA Dining by Design event to cover the base, originally seen HERE.


We are hosting Christmas Eve at our house this year and I cannot wait. Please share your favorite holiday dishes, as I'm looking for some new recipes to try out!

     Happy Holidays! xoxo, S
