2015 Christmas Decor Pt I

Finally finished my holiday decor for this season! I meant to do it about a week earlier but I’ve been traveling a bunch lately so it got shoved to the back of the priority list. In this post, I’ll be sharing the kitchen, dining area and living room decor. Tomorrow, I’ll share the tree and bedroom decor.

Starting off in the kitchen with two cute little towels:IMG_9706Dining area is simple but pretty, with my annual DIY staple of fake holly and berries paired with pine cones:IMG_9692IMG_9694
Into the living room: the jingle bells moved to the credenza this time and I love them here!

Vintage Finds at Miss Pixie’s: Pt 2

On my recent visit to Miss Pixie’s, I found a tray, two metal tins and three vintage disco ornaments… all for $25 total!

My desk was in need of holiday cheer, so I put the ornaments in a tall vase. 2013-12-05 20.34.58     2013-12-05 20.28.24

Holidays in Kansas City

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I went “home” to Kansas City to see family and friends. Here’s a little taste of Thanksgiving and Christmas decorating! 

Cranberry turkey! I kiddingly told my little cousin to carve a turkey on the top and she actually did- and it’s quite amazing. She’s a budding artist.

I sent a Pinterest link to my mom awhile ago for a fruit platter turkey. On Thanksgiving day, my mom, sister and cousins sliced up the fruit and arranged it.

Plaza Lights (If you’re ever in Kansas City around the holidays… a must see! One of my favorite things about going home.)
