Make the Season Bright: Holiday Blog Hop 2011
The Make the Season Bright: Holiday Blog Hop 2011 is a blog event where bloggers invite our readers to take a holiday tour of homes through our blogs. On this stop, you get to the the K-Couple home all decorated for the holiday season and find out a little bit about how we’re handling the holidays as newlyweds.
Welcome to Our Home
When you arrive at our home, you’re greeted by a handmade tulle and pearl wreath that will stay up all winter long. As I’ve posted about before, I like to make things out of
trash junk other things. After our wedding, I had a lot of great crafting material around, so I made this wreath based on a project that I found on Pinterest.
My super-crafty mother-in-law made us school spirited snowmen (go Purple Raiders!). They hang out among the pictures.
What’s that in the background? Thank you so much for asking! That’s the light fixture that I’ve been obsessed with decorating since we moved in! Three designs later, this is what I landed on and it’s sparked some comments.
One of my favorite parts of decorating for Christmas is hitting the details. So I’ll bore you with those before the main event (the tree of course). There are certain parts of Christmas that can’t be left out, specifically the nativity and advent.
Have you noticed the pine cones?
The K-Couple’s very first Christmas tree!
Our first Christmas as a married couple is really exciting and it’s amazing to think that this will be our 6th(!) Christmas as a couple. will One big issue for newlyweds when it comes to holiday decorating is not having their own decorations. Many of us use hand-me-downs from our families and whatever people give us to get us started.
In our case, both sets of parents bought us some decorations after Christmas last year so we had a pretty nice set of things to start off with (and after this Christmas, our collection will grow).
Have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season.
