Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had an amazing holiday season and enjoyed the 12 Days posts. I’m definitely going to continue on the tradition to next year. Enjoy the end of 2017 and I’ll see you in the new year!
We’re almost there! If you are anything like me, the food during Christmas is one of the best part about celebrating. Whether you have your big meal on Christmas Eve or on Christmas Day, here is the guide to planning the ultimate Christmas dinner.
*If there’s a particular recipe I use I’ll link it in parentheses:

We have a standard frosted green wreath with a big red bow on our front door.
We hang most of our stockings right by the entrance under the window. We also put a Christmas pillow on the bench to add a little more color.
We use a red runner on our shoe cabinet and line it with small (fake) poinsettia’s and other small Christmas decorations.
Mine and my sister’s stocking are hanging here where we have out wooden nativity scene on display.
We have out crystal Christmas ornaments hanging on these two steel ornament holders. We also strung lights through these so they light up at night. We also fill this table with tons of Christmas candles which we usually light in the evening.
We have these two white chairs, so we decided to get Christmas pillows to really stand out against the white.
In front of the large chest we have this sofa (in front of our TV), so we also got some Christmas pillows for this.
This coffee table usually has just the big wooden bowl, but during Christmas we fill it with pine cones and little ornaments. We also put out Christmas coasters and some candle holders.
This is our tree (fake because we live in the tropics). Super standard and traditional. Peep the presents starting to pile up:)
These are just the little touches, but we put fake little bunches of red holly all over the house like this.
This is my room, and I have some red and green tinsel lining my bookshelf, a small decorated tree, and a clear vase full of small Christmas ornaments.
Just small details, but my sister strung green tinsel along the side of my bed (I have a day bed), which is so cute at night when I have lanterns and fairy lights on.
Oh how I missed the cotton candy sunsets from home<3
