Growing up during the holidays was a magical time for me. I have so many wonderful memories of coming home from school and seeing my mom decorating one room after another. It never all happened in one day, and each year she always added something new and exciting to our Christmas decorations, yet the traditions always remained the same....
I have come to realize that my way of decorating for the holidays has evolved to be the exact same way. I think this is why I really don't like to start decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving. Maybe it's also because I feel time really went by much slower growing up. There was no "mad rush" into the holidays, but more of something to look forward to. I want that for my children, especially in this fast paced world we live in now a days. I want this time of year to be as special and magical for my children as it was for me....
Today I am sharing our traditional Christmas living room.
There's really nothing fancy in the space. It's the room we are in most often and must remain functional for our family....
|Here is another view of the mantle with my mitten garland. The greens are from our boxwood bush in the front yard! I was so excited when I found that adorable quote from Elf at Home Goods! It was hidden away in the clearance section!! Not sure why because it's perfect!! The Santa clause lane sign was custom made by HelloShoppe on Etsy.|
|Another countdown ornament.... I made this one for us. |
Yes, I have a secret obsession with chalkboards. Ok, it's not a secret but it's for sure an obsession!
And there you have it! Our cozy, traditional Christmas living room!
