since last year and I'm quite happy with how everything turned out.
If you remember from previous years, the buffet and our high top were in different places before we decided to change everything around. I have LOVED the change, but it made decorating a bit tricky this year. I think I managed to display everything I wanted well and LOVE the advent calendar my MIL made for me.
How adorable is Le Husband's Charlie Brown tree?
There are only a few other pieces in the kitchen but we have quite a few Christmas themed towels that I put on a weekly rotation during the season. This one is my favorite because I love the beautiful poinsettia prints.
On the island Le Husband built I've put my FABULOUS pink tree. Y'all this tree is one of my favorite Christmas pieces, Mama B did such a good job finding it for me. It was special to me in college and always makes smile when I set it up.
Moving into the living are you'll find both of our nativities. I love nativity and manger decorations and always try to find the best place in our home to display them. Le Husband has his Peanut's gang on a bookshelf and this year I put a Christmas book behind it for a lil bit of a back drop. Isn't this set adorable? I can totally see it being a favorite once kids come into the picture. #peanutschristmas #didijustsaykids
One year instead of an ornament my mother gave us each a nativity and I am so thankful she did. I love how classy and elegant this set is and that it isn't toooooo big. Normally I try to have the wise-men and shepherds farther away from the stable, to keep with the Christmas story, but we just didn't have the space this year. Baby Jesus is in hiding though, until Christmas Eve when he'll make is magical appearance. #rightnowitsjustabarn #gimmeallthenativities
You'll recall my love of WREATHS from last week's post. I wish I could post wreaths on every door and throughout the home, but we only have the wall space for one wreath and behold everything pink and glittery. When we spent Thanksgiving in Kentucky a few years ago, all the cousins went to Michaels and then we created our own holiday wreaths. It was a fun time and I'm really happy how well mine has held up. #clearlyiembracedmycolor
Decorating our high top was a bit of a challenge this year since we actually use it for dinner every night. I brought out our Christmas placemats, changed our flowers to Christmas flowers and have my beautiful Christmas napkins displayed [thank you, Babyspice]. Confession, we use paper napkins because I don't want to ruin our pretty ones.
One quick turn from the table you'll find our sofa and our fun and festive pillows. #thankyoutarget
This year I grabbed some free evergreens from the Christmas tree lot and displayed it throughout the home. I love the festive flair it adds to our television stand and the two Peanuts characters add the perfect lil touch.
My mom bought these for Le Husband the past two Christmases and it's a fun new family tradition.
To round out the apartment here is our bookshelf right by the front door. I decorated the top shelf candles, evergreens, one of my favorite lil trees and the bears both got a Santa hat or stocking.
Well, there you have it, casa de Pinky all jazzed up for the Christmas season. I'm extremely happy with the look and find I can't help but smile when I'm home and the tree is lit. There is something special about this time of year and I plan to soak it all up as much as possible. What are your favorite decorations in your home?
