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. I may be just a tiny bit excited. With E being 2 years old it is the first year she can somewhat comprehend the concept of Christmas and Santa. I have always loved Christmas, but seeing her get so excited over little things like a snow globe truly makes this the best time of the year.

We don’t decorate until after Thanksgiving, but I know many people are decking the halls this weekend. Today’s post is all about inspiration, so without further ado here are my 5 favorite pins from the week featuring Christmas decor!

This is the tree by Craftberry Bush is the tree of my dreams, but I am a sentimental at heart so our own tree is full of mismatched ornaments every year. It’s definitely on the more eclectic side, but I’ll never give it up. Next year, I’m hoping for a family tree full of mismatched ornaments and popcorn string in the basement, with a perfectly coordinated tree on the main floor, which would be the best of both worlds. I’ll be keeping this pin in mind when the time comes.

Sometimes simple is best. I love how perfectly restrained this space from Dreamy Whites. As much I wish we were minimalist, we are not. If you are, I highly recommend this homey, yet elegant look.

I may actually attempt this look from Good Housekeeping in my home. That is, if E is still short enough to not be able to reach the candy canes. I’m afraid this decor won’t last long, because girlfriend’s got a major sweet tooth. #gotitfromhermama

This house spotted by Studio McGee is beyond cute, so that definitely helps make their traditional Christmas decor shine. I’m a bit of a traditionalist and this house reminds me of how we decorated my childhood house, so it gives me all the feels.

For the last holiday inspiration picture, I picked another shot from Craftberry Bush. As of today, they are now my number one source for Christmas decor ideas. I like that this is festive, cozy and relatively kid friendly. That’s a wining combination in my book.
