Decoration Nation

I have a new love for decorating since I have a whole home to decorate for the holidays for the first time! Just walking through a craft store I get so excited and inspired to try different things. I didn't want to do the traditional red and green tree so I chose to do blue, green, and silver. You can't really tell in the picture but there are lime green bulbs and leaves on the tree too!



It's all thanks to my Mom that I have all these decorations...literally. I don't have the original thoughts. I might get some spark of an idea and then my Mom shows up at the door with a bag full of materials from the craft store. So it's been fun to put everything together and have something fun to do with the girls of my family. Chris isn't so into the decorating. It's actually pretty funny because its like he gets stressed out when I ask him to do anything related to decorating...like he'll be in trouble if he does it wrong. But he did lovvve putting the Seahawks candy canes on the tree!



I took pictures of different decorations around our house...me and my Mom made or put together all of them!




For some unknown reason, this pinecone is my favorite decoration out of ALL of them. I just think its so cute on the candle holder...



Mom spraying the garland with SNOW IN A CAN! I had a little too much fun with that one on the windows.


Another one of my ABSOLUTE favorite things about the holiday season are the SMELLS! We walked into the YMCA last week and I about died because they were selling those pine wreaths. It just smells like Christmas and I love it! I will also die for baked goodies smells and peppermint and cinnamon. Last weekend when I was shopping with my Mom in law we found this AMAZING candle and she bought it for us. Its sugar cookie but it smells EXACTLY like rainbow chip cake batter. We have been burning it nonstop and I have to tell myself to not taste the wax everytime ;)
