A told me that he was chatting with the assistant principal of his school a few weeks ago (she also was his first grade teacher), and he told her we were progressive decorating this year. It made me laugh because I posted a picture of our mantle on instastories and she commented that our progressive decorating was coming along nicely. And A wasn’t wrong. We started decorating early, but I really took my time figuring out where to put items. Here is a little peek at our Christmas decor for this year!

One of my very favorite spots is the mantle:

I eventually want to buy a large canvas for Christmas only, but with multiple new house purchases I decided that wasn’t in the budget for this year. Fairy lights have been my favorite thing the past two years. They easily can add just a bit of sparkle in so many places!


I also love this new spot to decorate with our new console table:

And the little fairy lights tucked into each of these ceramic houses look so pretty at night!


I also have our kitchen island centerpiece set up with festive decor and candy (that is somehow mysteriously disappearing, ha!):


And a whimsical coffee station set-up:


This is the first time I’ve had a dining room that I can just set up and leave decorated:


On going Risk game and all. These brush trees on the hutch were a mess to unpackaged, but are a lot of fun:


And my last favorite spot is the boys’ bookcase outside their rooms:

It is so fun and cheery it makes me happy to see it everyday! Thanks for taking our little Christmas tour!
