I have been giving a lot of thought to Christmas decorating this year and paying close attention to the images I have seen in some of my favourite lifestyle magazines. I have switched up my holiday decorating themes over the years but I am currently in a phase of ‘classic Christmas’. I love lots of greenery, red, gold and am really drawn to Buffalo Check this year too. I have pulled some images from Pinterest that I am going to use to guide my decorating this year. I also need to add a few things to my collection, I linked those as well. This is essentially my vision board for Christmas Decorating 2018, without it, I would be tempted to just buy all the Christmas decorations. A few years ago when we purchased our artificial Christmas tree we got it from Canadian Tire I have really been loving the Canvas line as well, so all my links are Canadian Tire.
Christmas Tree Groupings
I love having more than one Christmas tree in my home. In my opinion, nothing makes a living room more inviting then a lit Christmas tree. Normally if I have two trees in the house I place one in our front window and one in the basement living room. This year I would like to add a small tree to our larger tree to create my own grouping.
This image really inspires me as I love the raw beauty in real greens all over the home. We normally create this kind of garland on our front porch but I want to bring it inside as well this year.
I just want to have twinkle lights all over my home, all year long. I think this is one of the simplest ways to create holiday magic inside our homes and turn ordinary decor into something magical.
Here are some basic dot Christmas lights. I have even thrown these in a mason jar with some tiny Christmas balls and tinsel to create a festive centre piece (thanks mom-in-law for that inspiration). If you wanted to get a little fancy you could try something like this strand with pearls.
