One of the things we love about this time of year is decorating the house. There’s nothing like that sense of accomplishment you feel after everything is all set. You’ve finished putting up the tree. The mantle is decorated. The gifts are wrapped. All that’s left to do is throw on some Christmas music and sit back with a glass of wine (or egg nog if you prefer) to admire the prettiness that comes along with the season…
This year though, since we moved back in with the parents, we don’t have our own house to decorate. Mom has her own Christmas decorating routine, and as beautiful as it is, it’s hers – not ours. Having spent 3 years in our own home, we were just starting to figure out what our holiday style was and beginning to enjoy the coming up with the little crafts and touches that make every household their own. It’s something that we didn’t realize that we’d miss during this whole process, but definitely something fun to look forward to next year once project Dreamhouse is complete. Hopefully Mom will still come by and lend her experienced hand.
So with just 5 sleeps left till the big day, we decided to take to Pinterest to get some Christmas decor inspiration for the house that we don’t yet have! Maybe we’ll even get to feature some of these in practice on the blog next year – but for now, these will have to suffice!
