It is FINALLY December which means Christmas is almost here!! I'm obsessed with everything about the Christmas holiday: the sound, the smell, the food, the people, I can never get enough. I spent last weekend decorating our apartment so I thought I would share a few photos below. For our tree I always do a combination of red and gold classic ornaments, while also mixing in ornaments from my childhood and random others that I have picked up over the years. I love the combination of old and new!
We are hosting Christmas with my family this year (I'll be sharing the tablescape soon!) and it is important to me that everyone feels at home since they are staying with us for the holiday week. You can't host Christmas without having stockings for everyone, but in trying to fill them I realized how hard it is to find small, relatively cheap goods that people will actually like. Candy is always a good idea but I've linked a bunch more suggestions below, many of which come in packs so you can give them to everyone!
