Our Holiday Home Tour – Entry, Office and Mudroom

This week I have a huge dose of Christmas cheer for you! Call me Santa Clause, because I’m bringing joy to our household one garland at a time. Presents coming later. Decorating for Christmas has been a process, but I am happy to report I have successfully completed one floor! While our upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms, may be business as usual for now, we really got in the spirit on the main floor. In fact, E and my child-at-heart-husband inspired me to go a bit overboard and a lot outside my comfort zone,  I’ll be sharing our holiday home in a series of posts, starting today with our entry, office and mudroom.

Freestyle Friday (The 5 Best Christmas Pins)

Welcome to Freestyle Friday – Christmas Edition! This trend is likely to continue until Santa Claus makes his way through our fireplace… err… or our front door, since all of our fireplaces are gas. How exactly does that work? It may be disrespectful to Thanksgiving, but I can’t help but get in the Christmas spirit with all the holiday decor gracing the stores. During my weekly Target run, I picked up a gingerbread house kit, gingerbread cookies mix, cookie cutters, a few Santa Claus books, Elf on the Shelf and a snow globe.
