It is no secret around here that I L-O-V-E the Holiday season.

As soon as it is November the 1st the season is open for me.

I like to enjoy one Holiday at a time, but will have to admit when Thanksgiving, and Christmas are only a few weeks away from each other I do planning for both at the same time.



Now that I have confessed I am going to show you what I have planned for my Christmas d├ęcor this year.

Disclaimer: The Family tree always has our special memory ornaments on it. That will never change. Any changes that will be made to the tree will only be an addition of new ribbons, or different colored balls.(yes there really are a few balls on that tree.)

Last years tree
It was a red and white year for us.

But this year is going to be a bit different!

What I am about to show you are the colors and elements that will be in the rest of the room, mantel, kitchen and kitchen dining area:

Ribbet Edit 2013 Christmas Inspirationa

This is the combination of wrapping paper and ribbons I will be using. 

The small print on the bottom reverses to white so that will break things up a bit, as will some white ribbon.

I have this sweet little  guy from Dear Lillie as a pillow, and some cut-outs that I will be using as well.

jingle bells

My pillow will have a black and white buffalo checked back with the embroidered words in black.


There may or may not be this configuration going on a wall.
 I need to get out to the Thrift stores!!!

Believe it or not I started pinning inspiration for 2013 Christmas even before last year’s Christmas was over.
I told you I L-O-V-E the Holidays.

(To see more of what inspired this look you can go HERE to my Pinterest board 2013 Christmas Inspiration!)

Well, you are more organized than me. I just see things I like and then once I pull all the stuff out I just start putting things here and there.

Thanks so much for sharing your ideas. It's so much fun to fancy up our homes for the holidays and I adore the sleigh bell pillow! I am now planning to make one for my house, thanks for the inspiration.


We all wait on pins and needles for your beautiful holiday decor. It never disappoints. Can't wait to see it in your new space:)
