Deck the Halls

It's December 1st and Christmas is now 25 days away! Thanksgiving brought many blessings and it was such a treat to be back in Charlotte surrounded by so much LOVE. In true Nido style, we laughed, we danced, drank Muffin's legendary dirty martinis and as per usual, had food so overwhelmingly stunning as it was delicious, it could have been on the cover of Bon Appetit. I am literally beside myself with holiday cheer and our house is quickly becoming kissed with Christmas in every corner. I am riding the Holiday High! We're going to get our tree this weekend! I have also requested we pick up Peppermint Mochas at Starbucks on the way so that we can sip on holiday cheer as we pick out the perfect Fraser Fir. I can't wait to carefully unwrap every ornament and tell MM the story of how it came to be. HA!

Although the tree is not going up until this weekend, that has not stopped me from decking the halls in other nooks and crannies! A few weeks ago, I posted some Christmas inspiration from my favorite go- to for home decor, Pottery Barn. Well, last week, I picked up some supplies and a real wreath from a local nursery and created a cheerful and welcoming piece of love for our front door. I found some gold and red ornaments at Target and attached them to my wreath with floral wire. I sat down in front of Oprah's Favorite Things last Monday and started creating. The entire project took all of about an hour and I love the way the wreath looks on our door. Not to mention, the Pottery Barn look alike retails for $79. I made mine for under $20. I can't wait to create a few other special projects I have up my sleeves. Stay tuned!
