Beautiful Seasonal Decor For The Holidays


Has it come to this? It’s November 1st, just ONE day after Halloween and I see a post from one of my “friends” on Facebook about how disappointing it was that Target did not have all their Christmas decorations out yet.  It used be that the day AFTER Thanksgiving was the kick off to the holiday season.  But no more.  It’s time to turn on your outside holiday lights, adorn the front door with a fresh pine wreath and litter the yard with glowing snowmen and reindeer.  Think, Chevy Chase "Christmas Vacation". These days Jingle Bells are ringing a little sooner and I guess I should just get on board.  I do love everything about this time of year (including the “stepchild” Thanksgiving).  It’s a time of eating, drinking & celebrating with family & friends.  There are countless magazines and website with ideas on how to decorate your home or how to create the perfect festive holiday table.  Here are some that caught our attention using a classic palette, dressed with a splash of color and incorporating fresh pears, white pumpkins & squashes slowly easing your way from fall into winter.  Make your own napkin holders, wrapped with ribbon and a cinnamon stick for a personal touch that not only looks amazing but also smells terrific.  Cheers, Happy Holidays!
