Holiday Peek

Hello all. I know it's been a while since I last posted, so I wanted to stop in and show you a few peeks of my holiday home. 
My family and I got our tree on Sunday so I've been creating my own decorations this year. I wanted to keep it super simple.

I planted some Paper White bulbs around the house.

French seedling pots tied up with pretty festive ribbon.

I have been coveting the wool pom-pom wreath from Anthro since last Christmas but I just couldn't afford it, so like a lot of you out there I decided to create my own. All of the pom-pom's were made by me. It was a bit time consuming but super simple and fun to make.

Fresh Winter Berries.

Sneak peek of my tree. 
I'm not quite done with it. I just added a few vintage ornaments here and there and some pom-pom garland. I still have a few more garlands to create. These are made out of beautiful silvery-gray tulle and natural colored twine. I created these the same way I made the pom-pom's in the wreath.

 Winter Berries & Rose Hips.

This fantastic French torchon is from French Larkspur.

How is your Christmas decorating going? Are you going all out this Christmas, or are you keeping it simple?

I'll be back with more photos next week.
Have a very joyous Thanksgiving everyone!!
