TRANSITIONAL DECOR FOR THE HOLIDAYS


Something fun today from me + Martha Stewart

I love to play the "too early!" game whenever I spot Christmas decorations up in stores too soon after Halloween. Hello, Thanksgiving is to be appreciated. However! I also like to cozy my home up for the holidays as soon as humanly possible, especially once Daylight Savings Time ends and my home becomes a cave that could really use some extra cheer inside. It's a conundrum. And I do mean that sincerely, because look! You either take this kind of stuff seriously or you don't, and those that do, well, you know what I mean here.

So Martha + I (well, the Martha Stewart Living section at The Home Depot and I . . .) are teaming up today to show you a few early holiday decor ideas that are fully Christmas tested and Thanksgiving approved! It's exciting, I know! :)

My trick is wreaths. It is never too early for wreaths. 


I love a wreath sans door, just for the heck of it. 


In the kitchen, I love a more petite wreath, something a little less grand and a little more natural, plus cranberries.


(Bonus Diet Coke in the shot, whoops! :)


I don't have a mantel but I love this garland with it's soft blue-green pine. Don't you think Barry deserves a garland? The oversized lit kissing ball is also sweet. We'll pretend it's mistletoe ;). 


A little sparkle on the way to the commode . . . nothing wrong with that ;)


I'll admit to moving the garland around a bit to find just the right spot. Because that's FUN.


There's no bad place for a garland. 

Mission accomplished! Not too Christmassy, definitely full of cheer.

  2. Beautiful, I love the simplicity of it. I love the warmth of your home. So pretty! And on a side note, I haven't blogged in a while, I blinked and you moved back to Idaho. Can't figure out when that happened, but like I've said, I've been absent.

  13. I always thought of wreaths as strictly outdoors. We don't have a lot of space tabletop decorating so I've always been at a loss on how to cheer the place up. So simple to hang wreaths everywhere!

  16. Natalie! Where oh where can I find a "Captain's Quarter's" plaque like the one you have hung over the door to your bathroom? I have a sailor in mind it'd be perfect for this holiday!
