When it comes to Christmas think of me as Will Farrell’s character Elf. While I don’t claim to have the enormous amount of energy that Elf has, I do however love Christmas. I really love fall, but Christmas takes the cake. Fall has really only begun when considering the temperatures and I’m not quite ready to give up my pumpkins, so I decided to do a little transitional decorating.
I retired the oranges and other various fall colors and went for a neutral theme in the dough bowl. In the center I used my German Christmas pyramid raised up on a white bowl to give it some height and wrapped the same burlap that I used in the Harvest Dough Bowl as well as the antlers and interspersed pinecones along with the white mini boos.
On the couch are two of my favorite HomeGoods finds: two years ago I snagged the Steinbach nutcracker collector’s book for a steal because it had been separated from its oversized nutcracker companion – though no one else was in the store when I found the book, I went full on stealth mode in the event that someone appeared out of nowhere to claim the book for themselves. The other find was found this past weekend – a woolen tartan throw from England. I had a similar tartan throw in my Amazon cart, but I wasn’t sure how long it would take to arrive from England even though the throw in the “5 Tips for a Cozier Home” came direct from Ireland 5 days after I ordered it. HomeGoods is one of my favorite stores, I actually try to stay out of there as it can be quite difficult to pass up a gorgeous piece. This year I am determined to pick up a German smoker and I am hoping for a great selection of Ulbricht nutcrackers, but it might be better if they don’t get any in.
What is the biggest thing that you must stay away from during the holidays? Is it a store? A goodie? A certain meal?
