The season of giving is upon us friends! It’s time for the bottom of our trees to slowly fill with gifts for those we love. And to see their faces light up on Christmas when they open them! How great would it be to keep that look of joy on their face going beyond the holidays? Too often our gifts end up in the back of a closet, drawer or cabinet just a few months after Christmas. Instead I propose giving a gift that’ll last the whole year (or possibly longer!). In fact I’ve got 5 gift ideas that keep on giving after the holidays and they work for just about all ages!
Well it certainly took me a lot longer to finish putting up my decorations for Christmas than I thought it would! We put our tree up on November 1st and I didn’t finish decorating it until like December 5th. I tell you toddlers make every job just a tad harder! Now that it’s finally up and as done as it’s going to get I figured I’d share! So here is my simple Christmas decor tour!
I always loved having a Christmas tree in my room as a kid. There’s just something about falling asleep to the glow of a Christmas tree. So, I knew I wanted to put one up in CB’s room this year! Even though she doesn’t sleep in her nursery, ha! But we’re working on it and she’s started napping in there at least. And, of course for my girl’s nursery Christmas decor I just had to go with a pink and red theme with a nod to Santa’s reindeer and toys!
Is anyone else in denial that it’s already time to start buying Christmas gifts?! No, just me? And of course buying gifts leads to wrapping gifts. But I have a gift to you today that doesn’t require wrapping but will help you with wrapping your own presents. Some adorable buffalo check Christmas gift tags! See how to access them in the Free Printables Library at the end of the post!
As we’re moving away from Halloween the most wonderful time of the year is upon us! I know we still have to get to Thanksgiving but my personal motto is it’s never to early to start thinking about Christmas! This of course coming from the girl who listens to Christmas music starting in August! And what better place to find gifts than Amazon? Turns out Amazon some amazing farmhouse Christmas decor as well and I’ve rounded up some of the best for you!
Halloween is coming up so soon! And one thing I love about Halloween is homemade costumes. For one they always look better to me, not as cheap. And you can get as creative as you please with them! For this year I chose to DIY a baby strawberry costume!
For some reason in Cora Beth’s baby book under holidays there’s a picture slot for Cinco de Mayo! While I usually go eat Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo it isn’t really a holiday I thought I’d have to document during my baby’s first year of life! I’m not one to leave a space blank though. So I figured if we’re going to celebrate why not go big! Go big or go home right? To help with the celebration I made this DIY Fiesta Banner to hang up!
It makes my heart so happy to get to do an Easter basket this year! I didn’t really get excited about this past Christmas because I was still in a sleep deprived haze of the newborn stage that all Cora Beth got was a Cuddle + Kind doll that I didn’t even wrap (opps) and forget about Santa! So I’m definitely putting together my baby’s first Easter basket! Of course she’s not really excited about it but I am!
I’m really looking forward to Easter this year! I guess because it’s Cora Beth’s first Easter (her Easter basket is SO cute!). On a recent Target trip I was looking through the dollar bins when I saw the cutest linen napkins and knew I had to have them! Can anyone resist those bins? If you can please tell me your secret!!! Before I knew it the napkins, some eggs and few other items were in my cart and my idea for this simple Easter tablescape was coming together! Continue reading →
It’s the last day of September and it’s finally starting to feel like fall in middle Tennessee. Although, I won’t hold my breath as the temperature is likely to spike back up. Also at the end of this post I have some free fall printables for you!
