Hi Life of the Lane readers! It's Nina from The HSS Feed and I'm excited to be guest blogging today and showing you a few of the details of our holiday decor. This is our first holiday season in our new house, with our 10 month old son, so everything has revolved around making his first Christmas perfect. I had every intention of coming up with a sophisticated holiday decor scheme, but we've settled on keeping things a little more traditional and as fun as we can.
We don't have a fireplace in our house, so our Pottery Barn stockings hang on the banister on our second floor. I got this great ribbon at Paul Michael in Canton and the R's from Restoration Hardware hang with all four stockings (including one for our Yorkie, Harlow).
We bought this great tree from Frontgate (faux, pre-lit to make life easier) last year and we've accessorized with ornaments gifted to us from my parents from a really cool place called Bronner's Christmas Wonderland up in Michigan, where I grew up. We put a lot of red, white and snowmen on the tree, keeping things fun and pretty traditional.
This is Griffin, our elf. We're participating in the "Elf on the Shelf" trend and on this particular day, Griffin was hanging out on our bar cabinet. He has a cute little plate and cup for snacks and sips that we leave for him each night before he heads to the North Pole to report on whether our son is being good (which he is - very good!). It's a fun tradition and we look forward to many more fun years with Griffin!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
