Christmas Decorating

There is something about having Christmas lights on in your home that feels so cozy to me.  I love the way it looks and feels.  One of my favorite things to add lights to is my mantle above the fireplace.  Getting cozy next to the fire, drinking hot chocolate with only the Christmas lights on.  Now that is a very nice place to be.

The NOEL is a fun kit that I purchased at The Wood Connection and made with my mother in law and sisters in law.  It is a really simple, easy and CUTE decoration.  Plus it was really inexpensive to make it as well.

I try to keep things pretty low key around here as far as decorating for the holidays goes.  I like to have a simple touch here and there instead of filling every single space in my home with something.  Here are a couple of those simple things that I like.

Do you remember my snowman kits from last year?  I made one for myself and I still love it.  I currently have this little guy sitting on my piano.  

This is my all time favorite Christmas decoration ever.  My mother in law gave me this manger set several years ago, and it is simple and beautiful.  (Just the way I like it)

Last, I will show you my entry table and my tree all at once.  My tree is a sad little thing that I have had for years.  I inherited it from my parents who had it since I was maybe 4 years old.  This tree has lived a long life and is well loved.  My daughters have decorated and removed decorations enough on the tree that I think a pretty shot of the tree from afar will suffice. :)

There you have it.  A few Christmas touches around the house that makes it feel festive but not overwhelming.  I love it.

Pin It!
