My Holiday Filled Household

If you’re new to my blog, then you might not know that I like to decorate my room and bookshelves according to seasons/holiday. In our household we celebrate Christmas which means tons of family/family-friend time! My mother loves the time off my brother and I get because she gets to see our faces more.

Let’s start off with my room:

img_7044I didn’t have much to put on this shelf so I placed a little TBR plus the notebooks in which I’m writing a book in and the other my poetry/random ramblings.

img_7042I decided to keep it more simple compared to how I did it last year which had lights and ornaments hanging around. I noticed that the Christmas lights gave me a headache last year…that’s because I actually dislike lighting…whelp #moonchild lol but I’m still in love with this more simple outcome!

I also decorated the whole house…my mother (yes I still live with my parents, no shame) woke up one Saturday and was like “we should put a Christmas tree up”…we haven’t had a Christmas tree IN YEARS so I was like “WHAT?!?! LET’S GO RIGHT NOW I’M BUYING EVERYTHING”…I literally did and the smile on her face was priceless!

fullsizerender-32Mom wanted to change the centerpieces for the coffee table and dining table to make it look more Christmasy so while we were at Dollar Tree and looking around, I totally got inspired with this idea all of a sudden and made this for her. She’s madly in love with it and so is her BFF.

And that is it!!!! Just wanted to share with you all. Thoughts? Do you decorate for the holidays? I hope you all stay safe out there. Don’t know about where you live but here in New York City, things get kind of really hectic. Take care! xoxo

  2. I love it! We haven’t started decorating the house just yet, mum goes overboard with all the decorations (yaay for still living with your parents 😉 ). Honestly the place looks like santa’s grotto, now my niece and nephew are 2 she seems to think she can go even crazier with the decorations because they’ll love it even more!

  4. Everything looks so gorgeous and Christmasy and I love it 😍😍😍!! I love how you did the ribbon on your shelves. And awwww the snowmen! I was telling Amanda the other day on her Christmas post that my mom is snowmen obsessed and we have a whole table dedicated to them during the holidays 😂. Also, those centerpieces and your tree are beautiful! My family needs to up their game because we haven’t had the chance to decorate yet haha.
