The Decorating Begins

Are you making plans for Christmas? I began decorating a week ago and especially appreciated the help I received from these darlings. Jordan and Kylie stuck with me until every last ornament was hung!

Since we added a farmhouse table last summer we no longer have the ample space in the center of the room for a Christmas tree, but, by removing an armchair by the fireplace, we found that the adorned beauty is in the spot it always should have occupied.

The gold and white color scheme is still going strong at our house. The star tree topper started the trend for me. I’ve had it for years and finally decided to start building an ornament collection to complement it. With each Christmas party that I’ve hosted, I’ve handcrafted ornaments to give away and amassed a generous collection for myself in the meantime. See a few of my favorites here.

Do you have preferred colors you use at Christmastime, or do you mix it up year to year?
