I can finally see the end of what has seemed to be a long road....we get to move into our house within the next couple of weeks! Since moving we’ve felt we’ve been on a hiatus with every holiday. Not decorating for the holidays has been pure torture along with putting most of my baking on hold. I won’t be decking our halls like usual this year, even once we move in because we’ll be traveling, a few decorations and of course a tree will go up as soon as we get the keys, but I’ve been keeping my eye on many festive decor items for the home in hopes to snag them with an after Christmas sale. There are some small things that have kept me afloat so the Mrs. Meyers holiday scent collection and a few DIY projects.
Mercury - The mercury trend for candles and vases are EVERYWHERE! Adorable they are, but pricey they can be depending where you buy. If you’re into some DIY-ing, try this {tutorial} out from Martha Stewart.
Mrs. Meyers - I use their Basil scented countertop spray on the daily. When I found they made holiday scents (which actually smell good) I bought a couple different things {from Target} to spruce of our living quarters. Not only is our house clean but it smells all sorts of festive now!
Toss Pillows - Every year you can find cute and festive pillows for the season. Some of my favorites are on Etsy, just like this Mistletoe pillow from Michelle Dwight Designs.
Wall Hanging - Is it just me, or is everyone using wall hanging this year? I’ve seen so many variations whether it be for a small or large space. I’ve also seen everything from Christmas tree to animals to quotes. The Land of Nod carries a few different wall hangings. 
Felt Garland - To me, anything made of felt gives a very nostalgic feel. I love using felt garland for the tree, mantel and even to drape on the wall above a bed. 
Kitchen Textiles - If you enjoy dressing up your cooking space for Christmas as well, this polka dot oven mitt set will do just the trick. Not too tacky for the holiday, but just enough pop of pattern and color to brighten your space up.
Metallic Ornaments - We each have a monogrammed ornament on our tree for each of our names. I really like the simplicity of these ornaments from Anthropology, no curls, no gems, no extra fuss.
