Welcome to our library, where we have highlighted one of our favorite Christmas tales- a Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Year after year, this story lends itself to incredible Christmas decorations and richness of color!
So excited to share with you our decorations during this most magical time of the year! A year ago today, my family and I boarded a plane to spend Christmas in New York and it is a trip I will hold near to my heart forever! So what does one do when they love something so much? Well, bring it home of course!
So the task of tucking everything away until next year has begun and I do hesitate to admit this, but I do kind of enjoy this process! I know fellow organizers and crazy label-making people will appreciate and completely relate to this post!
So, my weakness in life is my love for animals and sharing with you why this year was difficult is tough but I know you will understand. Each year my first and favorite room to decorate is the dog’s room.
Prince, my King Charles, and Lovey, my Shi Tzu, anxiously awaited each year for their room to light up.
Our newest family member and star of the show this year: Chester, the nutcracker of all nutcrackers!
There was no leaving this guy behind when I found him after Christmas last year in Atlanta. I should have known when it took three big men at HomeGoods to dismantle him that I was in for a challenge!

Happy Monday everyone! We renovated our kitchen a few years ago and opened it up into the living room, which has quickly become everyones’ favorite room to hang. For that reason, it is one of my favorite rooms to decorate! If you remember our Thanksgiving Tree, this tree in the kitchen is the same one that we redecorated for Christmas. So fun!

Some of my favorite trees to do each year are the ones in my girls’ rooms! For Annie’s tree, we started with the picture of her with the ice cream as the topper and worked our way down incorporating ice cream ornaments and different splashes of purple to match her newly painted purple room! Can’t wait to have the girls home for the holidays. Enjoy!
So, as many of you know I love to switch up the decorations each Christmas to keep it interesting and fun. I always use my same classic decorations and pieces as the base for my design and then try to bring in new (or old) lower-priced elements and items to create new themes and mix it up each year! These are a few of my favorite decorations from last year. All photos by the amazing Katrice Howell. Enjoy!
