It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 13–Gift Card Ornaments

I’m so glad you popped in on us for our 13th, It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas post.  This is a 25 post series about all things Merry & Bright.  Although, truth be told, I may only fit in 20 posts (or maybe 15 haha) before the 25th.  December flew by didn’t it?
I always feel a little bit guilty when I give a gift card.  Not because it isn’t a great gift, (personally I love receiving gift cards) but because I feel like they don’t present as well …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 12–The Big Meal

The 12th post in our It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas series is all about the food!  If you’ve missed any of our other Christmas themed posts, I hope you’ll check them out!
My contribution to Christmas dinner this year is cooking the turkey, stuffing and potatoes.  I cooked a turkey at Thanksgiving and was really happy with how it turned out so I will be following the same recipe.  Same with the potatoes.  The stuffing however will be a first time recipe.  It’s a Betty Crocker recipe, so …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No.11–Eggnog Cookies

I’m so glad you could join me for my 11th, It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas post.  I have lots of work to do if I’m going to post another 14 times between now and Christmas.  Maybe these cookies will give me the energy I need!
Eggnog.  It’s one of those seasonal treats you either love or hate.  Personally, I love it.  I’m pretty sure I could drink it year round and never get sick of it.  So when I stumbled upon a recipe (over on the recipe critic)  …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 7–Winter Wonderland Photo Gift Tags

This is the seventh post in my It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas series. I hope you’ll follow along for the next 18! There’s a whole lot of Christmas cheer coming your way between now and the 25th!

I’ve been busy shopping for Christmas gifts and brainstorming how I want to wrap them this year.  I originally planned to wrap everything in newspaper, but I’m thinking it’s probably not the best idea.  I wrapped one gift, and had newsprint all over my hands and the gift.  They …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 5–Fully Decked Foyer

I’m going ahead and calling my foyer officially decked for the holidays!  I showed you my large vignette last week and today I’m going to show you the transformation of my smaller furniture piece.  If you remember, the last time I shared this display area, it was styled for "winter”.  Not anymore!  It’s full blown Christmas around here now.  And I’m happy to say that decorating with candy canes and branches proves to be very affordable.  Which is great because we could all use a little more money in the …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 3–Traditional Holiday Vignette

Thanks so much for joining me for the third post in my It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas series.  If you’ve missed a post you can catch up here.
I’ve broken the house rules.  Our halls aren’t suppose to be decked until December 1st.  I couldn’t wait.  I’ve dismantled my winter décor (you can see it here and here) to make room for nutcrackers and candy canes.  The first area I’m going to share with you is the long dresser  (you remember – the one I got for …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No.1 – Christmas Morning Table

I’m so excited to kick of my, It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas series today!  It falls purposely in line with the Dare To DIY Challenge being hosted by Décor And The Dog, Maybe Matilda, Newly Woodwards and Two Twenty One.  Today’s “dare” is to entertain.  So that is exactly what I did this weekend.  Well, I didn’t actually entertain, I set a table like I might set one for breakfast on Christmas morning.
I figure, Christmas morning is the only day we can get away with having candy …
