If we weren’t sure before, we’re positive now that the holidays are here! Saturday alone held Santa brunch, the Christmas parade and a flotilla-watching party. (A flotilla is a boat parade if you’ve never seen one! All the boats get totally decked out in Christmas lights, and make their way down the waterfront. It’s amazing!) We’re feeling full of good-cheer and holiday-ready. But, if you aren’t quite there, let us help you get in the spirit! Check out ten of our favorite rooms that are sure to get you in a holiday state of mind.

Take a Peek at Our Holiday Decor!


With eight days until Christmas, most of you have probably put the finishing touches on your decor. And, if not, hey, look on the bright side: Your tree will still be SUPER fresh on Christmas day! This year, we had a lot of help with our decor from some little holiday elves. You know when you were a kid and there was always THAT house that you begged your mom and dad to drive you by? That one that was all sparkly and lit up? Well, we do too. And we’ve always kind of wanted to have that house. (Maybe minus the blow up Santa.)

Hi everyone! First, thank you Kristy and Beth for having me today – I’m thrilled to be guest posting.  I’m also really excited to be talking about Christmas decorating. I held back until now and saved it for this guest post. So here we go….
What do you do if you are like me and are not really such a fan of red? It can be tough during the holidays when everything available seems to be red and maroon.  If you like things more neutral, or have colors in your home that clash with reds, here is a solution, and what I do.
I use lots and lots of silver and gold, and very little color. Here, there is a bit of gray and green, but really those trees could all be metallic if you didn’t want any color:


The trick with this tablescape is to vary the heights, but make it symmetrical. I did tall in the center and on the ends, with lower all around the center. The lack of color is made up for by the glitter:


Ultimate Holiday Style


The countdown is on and there are only eighteen decorating days left until Christmas! Fortunately, we have some of the most fabulous inspiration photos to put the finishing touches on any decor scheme.
