Neutral Christmas decor

christmas decor

We are hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow so our Christmas decor won't go up today but hopefully by Sunday. I have been all about the neutral Christmas decor the last few years and have been swooning over everything at Target lately. Speaking of Target, they are offering $50 off a $100 holiday purchase tomorrow, run…here's to hoping not everything I want is snatched up before I can enjoy this discount. I am officially on a strict, no shopping budget:( It is totally worth it but around Black Friday it is miserable, ha!

I am all about the flocked or frosted tree these days. I love the subtle white. We will be using our same tree this year but I sure do love this one, pictured above!!

Every year pulling out my Willow Tree Nativity is one of my favorite things. My mom has purchased the pieces for me over the years and I LOVE it!!

I am excited to introduce the kiddos, mostly Isabella to an advent calendar this year. I am excited because I think this year will be my first year to really explain Christmas to her and hope she really understands the meaning behind the season. Pray she truly understand the blessing that it is one day. I can't wait to snatch up the one above. It will match our holiday decor perfectly.

I'm obsessed with Boxwood and think this wreath would be a perfect addition to our neutral mantel and stockings.

I'm also all about gold these days so of course this pillow, joy sign and banner are musts! Isabella requests to turn the lights on this joy sign every time we are at Target:) Here's to hoping I snatch a few items tomorrow:)

Hope you have had a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving!

"See you soon" party

Sunday we hosted a "See you soon" party for our sweet friends The Sneeds. We decided on a See you soon rather than Going away party because we plan on this being a very temporary move and we already have lots of fun adventures planned altogether soon. This was a big step for them, we are so excited for Alissa's promotion but we will miss them being close thankful they will just be a little drive away. We are already planning our family road trip to see them:)
We had my sister make this sign for them as their gift. Leaving Footprints is her Etsy shop, link here..
All the signs she has made me have been amazing

Definitely a good verse for their current adventure

These girls...I am SO thankful for them. They are my people. We have seen each other through the most beautiful times and some of the most difficult times. Wouldn't want to do life without them!

Bohemian floral baby shower

As soon as we found out sweet baby K was a girl I knew I wanted to throw Heather a sweet bohemian style floral shower. When I found the invitation I was instantly in love and so the vision of the shower began. I can't even describe how excited I am for Heather and Sasha. I can't wait to meet their sweet girl. Their shower was by far the biggest one I have thrown and they are so loved and blessed.

I also added a bring a book insert with the invites that were precious here

These paper flowers were so fun to make...I hand sewed and pinned these onto this back drop:)

I love having Thank you card envelopes addressed for the momma to be...makes life so much easier

We served Dennis' famous brisket tacos....they were a huge hit...

My sweet sisters!
The beautiful momma to be

Invitation: Etsy-Papernpeonies

Week in review

Such an incredible week and weekend! Most importantly we survived the weekend and it was SO incredible. I will share more pics from our parties of the weekend but first our week which includes: Cayson's first faux hawk and Isabella's Thanksgiving school feast!

This sweet, cuddly, momma's boy is the happiest kid on the planet as long as he is held or has ALL of momma's attention;)

Isabella captured this while I volunteered at church…typical..he does not leave my side:)

My sweet little dude

My tires were way past due…my light kept coming on so to survive I got the kiddos their first Wendys….they both ate two bites…and neither of my kids like french fries….say what?!

School Thanksgiving feast

My little ballerina shopping helper…trying to steer and eat a cookie is tough business

Buying macaroons…sugar high:)
Heather's floral shower…more pics to come

See you soon party for the Sneeds
Isabella was most excited about this party…so thankful for our kiddos becoming friends
