Christmas has come early to the Liira household! I tried to convince James to buy a fake tree this year (I KNOW RIIIIGGGHHHHTTT!) mainly because I wanted to start Christmas as soon as possible. He kindly reminded me how we both grew up having real trees and nothing is better than walking through the door and smelling a real tree. (I guess that's true but doesn't this amazing candle do that for ya?) I just can't rob Luca of that experience so come December 1st, you know I'll be at that Christmas tree lot getting my real tree.
That aside, I did manage to put up some other decorations. My banner is up, stockings are hung, and next up is the wreath! I want to do something cute yet modern this year so I turned to pinterest (as always) to inspire me.
1. Boxwood wreath w/ bow (above) I'm loving that simple yet modern wreath. It's fake, so it will last year after year and how crazy how a simple bow transforms it into wow!
3. Eucalyptus with peonies This one is super not practical for Christmas (unless you live in Australia where peonies are currently in bloom!) but I had to include it because it was SO GORGEOUS! The pink with that dusty green is just #swoon.
4. DIY Holiday Wreath is pretty amazing too. I'm not the craftiest person so my version could turn out very horrible but if you're good at DIY you could do this one pretty easily! I love the red berries...not too many, but just enough to get your attention.
5. (Yet another) Eucalyptus Holiday Wreath Ha I know, another eucalyptus one! But this one has cotton and berries and little red roses!! These guys were so on point with combining Eucalyptus and Christmas.
Have you started on your Christmas decor yet? Or do you wait until December 1st? I feel like everyone started wayyyy earlier this year and I'm totally okay with that! (Praise 106.5 even started Christmas tunes early!!!)
