Christmas Is Coming!

“Christmas is coming” my husband always says! When our kids were younger, whenever they would say they liked or wanted something he would say “Christmas is coming!” …even if it was February 1st lol. But guess what? Christmas really is coming….and soon!

 

Are you ready for the holidays?

I know every year it comes around faster than we realize. We are just getting our pool toys put away and BAM, we turn around and it’s Christmas.

This year with help from The Container Store I’m all set!

Are you a gift wrap or gift bag person?

I’ve always been a gift bag person, but either way you can find what you need at The Container Store.  They have a beautiful selection of gift bags and tissue paper to choose from, as well as gift tags!  I love going in there and seeing the beautiful displays of holiday wrapping ideas. They make it easy to find all the coordinating designs for your color scheme.

Can we talk about ribbon for a minute? I’m so in love with this pretty velvet Santa ribbon! I also grabbed a couple of rolls of this white satin ribbon that’s trimmed with red pom poms! This year my theme is going to be this craft paper with the ribbons I mentioned above. Here’s a sneak peek!

These are a few of my favorite things!

 

It’s classic and fun and goes with my natural wood colored theme, with just a fun touch of red! I also love these reusable jute gift bags! You can use them over and over again. Add fun tissue paper and you’re all set!

How do you organize your gift wrap?

This year Christmas came early for me in the form of this AMAZING ELFA gift wrap cart! For real’s, my organizing dream come true! The best part is that you can roll it from room to room. Kids hanging out in the den? No problem, just roll it into your bedroom. Here’s mine all decked out and ready to go!

It even has a ribbon arm!

 

Can we talk about this for a minute? Five drawers, a ribbon dispenser, wrapping paper organizer, hard top surface for wrapping gifts….AND it’s on wheels?? And look at the top drawer! It has a clear divided tray to hold tape, gift tags, pens, whatever you want! You guys, I haven’t been this excited for something since my husband bought me the vacuum of my dreams LOL!

Gearing Up For The Holiday Season

Believe it or not, the holiday season is almost here! Thirty five days, (35!) till Thanksgiving, and seventy days (70!) until Christmas!

Holidays can be filled with stress if you aren’t ready.

Getting prepared and organized in advance can really make a difference. Let’s start with decor. Do you have everything you need in the same place, organized, and labeled by holiday?

Decorating for each holiday can be made so simple. Everything has a place and everything is put back in that place. Year after year, your holiday decorating can get down to a science.

Holiday dishes stored together, placemats stored together, table linens stored together and so on.

I have a specific spot in my house for everything. The sideboard in my formal dining area holds all my linens, table decor, placemats, napkins rings, and so on, for Fall and Christmas.

As soon as summer is over and all the fall decor comes out in the stores, I look in my sideboard BEFORE I buy a thing.

Being organized saves not only time, but money too! Speaking of, I found these placemats at Target for $1.99 a piece. We recently had fifty guests at our home for dinner and I needed some more placemats. For that price I couldn’t pass them up. I needed them and therefore gave myself permission to purchase. Knowing where everything was, it was quick and easy for me to assess what I needed.

Happy Monday!
