Simple details take Christmas stockings from ordinary to extraordinary.
Woodland animal ornaments on stockings
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!

It doesn’t have to be complicated, but a special detail added to the stockings or creativity in what you hang with them or how you hang them can bring more cheer.
