Winter is officially here in Iowa, with our first snow on Sunday! I, for one, am ready. I've enjoyed the warmer weather, but I am excited to see the town turn into a winter wonderland. We will see how I feel when I'm out shoveling my driveway. But for now, I'm content.
In true holiday spirit, I couldn't wait to decorate my table! My biggest advice for decorating your table for Christmas is to use what you have.
I used scraps of fabric, a basket that usually holds my dish towels, pine cones from my yard, and a variety of candles that were used in my wedding.
My favorite touches this year were the live trimmings from Christmas trees and juniper bushes. I picked up a bundle for $2 and used them to decorate the top of my light fixture.
And to make these adorable mini wreaths.
The vintage champagne glasses are from a second hand store in town for $1.50 a piece.
I love having this DIY chalkboard in my dining room. It was so easy and inexpensive to make. This wreath was too! You can find out how to make your own $5 wreath here.
These wrapped chairs were a cinch - a little ribbon, scrap of fabric, juniper trimming, and voila.
Two things I'm obsessed with this Holiday season are;
1. Cape Coats
The second thing I am obsessed with is my new hair.
These lovely locks look like my own, but they are taped in extensions from Donna Bella. So far I have no complaints. They are so lightweight, I can barely tell they are in! If you want to know more about them, leave me a comment below!
What are you loving this holiday season?!
