Christmas Decor 2014


Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things because it just makes the house so cozy and happy! Last year, while we were in our house already, the living room was in much need of being painted, so it was just a kind of “make do” with how things are. It’s been so much more fun to decorate this space this year now that it’s a color pallet we love. So, I thought I would share a little bit of the Christmas happiness with you all!

Love the cute letters I found for our stockings at Anthro. Too bad we don’t know Baby’s gender/name, yet. I’ll just have to hope they have the same ones next year!

This vintage Nativity set is a favorite thing to put out because it’s the one my dad grew up with. My Grandma gifted it to me our first year of marriage and it’s fun to have some family history in our decor. :)

This little ornament is one of my favorites from childhood, and somehow makes me think of what Baby might look like if we have a girl. :)

Clearly you’ve picked up on the fact that the living room decor is entirely Cooper & Penny approved. When they’re not laying under the tree, they’re generally found in this chair and/or the blanket basket. They’re all about comfort, for sure.

    Oh my goodness, I love every single thing about it! With having moved right before Christmas this year, my house isn’t looking as festive and beautiful as I’d like, but it’s fun to see everyone else’s creativity come to life! You nailed it beautifully, as usual.

  2. I love this post! Christmas traditions are so fun, and I love seeing how you are turning your house into a home for the holidays! xoxo!
