Happy December 1st! It’s officially time for all the merriment to begin. Even with all the merriment, I’m a fan of simplicity. I don’t bring out a lot of decorations mostly because I don’t like to put them away at the end of the season. Ha! Does that make me sound like a tired cranky Scrooge? Maybe.

While keeping the decorations simple can give us more time and bring more focus to what matters most, I still believe that adding at least a few special touches to your decor brings extra festivity to this season.

And festivity brings joy to everyone!

What are some key areas of your home where you could add an extra touch of festivity?

How could you take something ordinary and give it an extraordinary look?

Certainly Christmas stockings are one of the focal points in a home this time of year, so let’s start there!

  1. I like to add things gradually, start with a winter theme and then build to Christmas. Take down of decorations occur in the reverse order, first Christmas and then winter. So, I am bringing in greenery, blues and silver colors with snowmen, skates, etc.

    I have plans for using some old family stockings to make a wall hanging, so that’s my project for the season.

  2. I received a McGee + Company catalog in the mail, + it’s pretty great! Yes, we’re nearly finished with decorating, but I still want to hang wreaths outside on our windows, at least in front. That’s such a traditional, New England ‘look’! TY for the inspiration!

  3. Love the stocking post! I also saw a super cute idea from the bloggers Young House Love called It’s The Most Clutterful Time Of The Year and they use white stockings with Elephant chain from World Market. Great minds think a like! :)

  4. Hung ours in each of the bedrooms this year…I’m seeing “fuzzy socks, fuzzy stuffed animals, decorative Kleenex, hand lotion, etc.” franki

  5. Thanks for featuring my pom-pom stockings! Such a great round-up of ideas. Loving the wood beads….I’ll have to add some to my decor this year!
