Decorating for the Holidays is one of my most favorite things! Most of our Christmases were spent in rentals and apartments so now that we have our dream house, I am slowing building our holiday decor and loving our Christmas Farmhouse! You probably are not surprised to hear that I am not a big fan of red and green decor. Even though I prefer to keep my Christmas decor similar to our home style, there is always room for a little traditional red and green! I am excited to share my favorite finds this year and how I decorate and keep everything pretty even with two small babes running around.

WHERE TO SHOP
I have purchased almost all of my decor from Target, Pier 1, Home Goods, and Amazon. There are very few little pieces that I have found in local stores but most of it is found online and in major stores. Some of my favorites from my “must have for Christmas decor list” are shop-able below:

A LOOK THROUGH OUR CHRISTMAS DECORATING
We have so much fun picking out a tree each year, especially when it’s cold outside! This time we got a super fluffy tree and flocked it as usual at a local farmers market! Here’s a look at our tree shopping, a little family fun, and the final pieces all coming together!
ORNAMENTS UP AND PRESENTS TIED TIGHT
Keeping lots of ribbon on hand is always a good idea as it can be used in so many different projects! I shared a few of my favorites above but I really LOVE getting ribbon on Etsy since you can get a big roll for $9 with 50 yards of ribbon! For my presents this year, I mixed it up with some blush ribbon as well as jute for the boys presents, then I decorated with my Target and Pier1 Ornaments!
Pier1 is having a huge ornament sale right now so I always check back in with them online and in the store! It’s a great way to save 50% off and get some unique ornaments!
Most ornaments seen in the detailed shot are from Target! I mix in different sizes and it always comes out perfectly!
How adorable is this wooden hanging tree? I LOVE IT! It was $10 at Target and it is a great way to showcase your Christmas cards!
I snuck a few of our gingerbread men into apothecary jars and I love how it turned out! With a small bag of fake snow, I finished the look and added in some gingerbread houses and tree candles! I am definitely not looking forward to having to take this down next year!
