I’m back home!  Did you have a great week of giveaways while I was taking a little R&R? I sprung into Christmas action as soon as we landed trying to get caught up with my holiday decor.  We spent Saturday morning picking out the perfect tree, and just like last year went with the root ball tree to replant in our yard after the holiday.

True to my predetermined Christmas decor theme, I stuck with winter whites, gold, silver, and browns/copper for this year.  Although I don’t feel like a ‘theme’ is always necessary, it definitely helps me to keep focus as I roam aisles of christmas cheer and reel in my thoughts to remain cohesive throughout the season.

The main change I made this year was to remove red from my palette and include levels of brown, bronze, and copper.  It meant that I didn’t have to splurge on new decorations, but just swapped out one color for another.  Adding some luxe texture like fur adds another level to this snowy theme that isn’t just represented on the tree.

How do you think the theme executed from concept to reality?

I have a ton of fun decor DIYs and tips to layer onto this foundation which I’ll be sharing over the next two weeks – Get ready for some fun and exciting new ways to amp up the holiday in your home (some you won’t even have to make a trip to the store!).

Have a LOVELY Monday!
