December is here and the countdown to Christmas begins! This time of year reminds me how fast the year goes, but gives so much hope and joy as we look forward to a wonderful holiday. This is our third married Christmas, which means another year of big muscles to help set up some decorations… yippee!! Here are some ideas for simple and elegant Christmas home decor to add to your decorations.

I tend to go overboard on the daydreaming about all of the fun to be had this season, but it is just so exciting. Wherever you are and whatever you are going through this Christmas, I pray you feel joy when you think about what Christmas means. It’s not about the presents or endless amounts of hot cocoa and it’s definitely not about the decorations…


Trees of all Sizes

We added two of these 4.5 ft. potted artificial trees to our front porch and just love how their soft glow lights up our entry way at night.

These decorative trees from Magnolia Market are perfect for any table or surface.

Lovely, and Budget-Friendly Wreaths

Something about a festive wreath softly screams elegance and charm. These dazzle up front doors and windows, or try hanging one over your mantle. I can just picture the Holiday Aisle White Berry Magnolia wreath (below – from Wayfair) above a lovely white mantle, accenting the red stockings and the warmth of a softly glowing fire. Ohhh! ‘Tis the season!
