Getting Your Home Ready For Christmas!...The New Series!

Before I even start to think about Christmas Day itself, I love mulling over getting our home gradually ready for that top layer of super-festive scrumdiddlyumptiousness. 


And that got me thinking: we all want the same, simple things at this time of year. A warm, beautifully lit space of our own to welcome friends and family into at Christmas-time....does that sound too much? Let's break it down a bit, shall we? 


What is it exactly that makes your home warm and welcoming? How do you actually get to that point of household loveliness...and without having any kind of nervous breakdown?


Is that feeling of welcoming warmth definable, explainable, tangible? 
I think it definitely IS!


Don't you wish there was an easy, step-by-step guide that took you through the process of getting your house looking absolutely beautiful so that those Christmassy layers can fall into place as the final flourish?


Ta-daaaaaaaaaa
{you knew that was coming, right!?}


Beginning next week, I'm starting a new series called Getting Your Home Ready For Christmas. You're about to find out all my favourite projects, tips and buys on how to get your home ready for Christmas....some are easy-peasy, others take a little more thought...but I can promise that all of them will help to give YOUR home that Modern Country Christmas magic.

Sarah,
I love you NEW Series!!! Christmas is my favorite holiday E V E R!!! Think it is in part contributed to the fact that I have a December birthday and that I love all of the Religious ceremony leading up to Christ Birth!!! I get a tingle each time you begin a series...secretly, I call them a Sarah Series!!! Can't wait to see your tips and creative Modern Country Christmas!!!
Fondly,
Pat

After next week I won't be allowed to come here...

My determinations and decisions concerning Christmas are shallow, I think.

I don't seem to stick to any... I keep changing ideas and this time of the year is magic around the net with so many people sharing lovely inspiration.

Yesterday, I promissed (read barred) myself from entering Pinterest ahahahah and I keep saying I won't go to Christmasy blogs but can't help it.

Looking forward for your tips next week.
I might come just to see ;).

Have a Lovely Weekend!

This sounds like a great series. I have lots of Christmas thoughts brewing around in my head, but not much for plans yet. Hope you have a good weekend. xo

I am looking forward to reading your tips! The one thing I have learned over the last few years is to know whe to say when...I spent so many holiday season running like crazy to get this perfect or that done...and in the end none of it mattered..so I try to focus on the important.

Lydia said...

Merry Christmas! We'll need some inspiration this year.

rusty duck said...

This will be our first Christmas at home for years. I need all the help I can get. Count me in.
