Table top trees

I love displaying ornament collections on table top trees. You can see the detail & every treasured ornament. My boys have a "Crabtree" with crab ornaments we have collected over the years. And this year they have informed be they would like to do a Pokemon tree, with all their favorite figurines. What type of ornaments does your family collect? (images via Pinterest)

Holiday card display

One of my favorite things about the holidays is all the cards we receive in the mail. I love all the photos & updates of our friends & family. I used to keep our holiday cards in a big bowl on the coffee table but the past few years, I've been adding them to our stair garland. Everyone enjoys them so much more when they are out for display. I just tie them on with ribbon & it adds the perfect touch to our garland. How do you like to display your cards? (images via Pinterest)

Wall Christmas Trees

I have been finding these wall Christmas trees all over Pinterest & I'm kinda loving the idea of one. Not that I'm replacing our traditional Christmas tree but I
am thinking in addition to. What do you think? Would you put one up in your house?

Tabletop trees

I am obsessed with Christmas. I love everything about it from holiday movies and music, baking, decorating-I could go on & on. If I could, I would have a tree in every room. I love table top trees! They add the perfect amount of sparkle & magic to every room. I found a few of my favorites on pinterest this morning & I thought I would share them with you.

Which is your favorite?

Cranberry Margaritas

I love fresh cranberries during the holidays & use them in recipes & my decor. I also love them in cocktails! One of my favorite drink recipes is this Cranberry Margarita I styled for Adult Limeade. They are so fun & festive & I adore the pop of red with the sprig of rosemary.
