Christmas Inspiration You Don’t Want to Miss

We’re officially in “one more week to Christmas” mode. I still need to wrap presents and finalize the holiday menu. During the last week of preparation, I enjoy visiting Christmas inspiration from fellow bloggers. I thought you might too so I’m featuring a roundup of decor, crafts, and treats for you to enjoy!


Let’s start with beautiful Christmas trees! You’ve probably noticed a recent trend of using more than one tree in the same room. Shirley at Housepitality Designs display a pair of exquisite Christmas trees in her home.

Is it possible to get tired of seeing Christmas decor? Maybe I’m just a bit of a Christmas nut but I could look at inspirational holiday decor for hours on end. 

Maria at Simple Nature Decor shows how simple holiday decorating creates a festive coastal Christmas living room.

One of my favorite Christmas decorations is poinsettias. They come in a variety of styles and Thistlekey Lane shows how beautifully she displays poinsettias.

Even a holiday kitchen breakfast nook like mine can be festive with just a touch of red and white.

  2. Wow!…..the tree inspiration here today is amazing!…I have taken “notes” for next years Christmas decor from trees to porches…I love your beautiful Holiday/Christmas tablescape…the deer plates are the greatest!…loved following you for Christmas inspiration this year and in the past….thank you for featuring my duo of trees…it has been a challenge this year in our rental home, but hopefully will be decorating in our newly built “right sized” home next year….Merry Christmas Jennifer to you and your family and may the New Year bring you much joy and happiness!

  3. Thanks for the inspiration pics. Of course, I’m a big fan of your decor since it so mimics the casualness and coziness that I truly love. The deer plates are a favorite of mine – in fact Pier 1 had more woodland critters this year and as their Christmas gifts, I purchased sets for of each of my adult grandchildren/spouses/significant others. Each household gets a set of 4: one deer, one bunny, one fox and one horse. I hope they like them. I would love to have a set myself, but really do not need any more plates. Maybe next year after I can part with an old set in order to add a new one.

    Wishing your family a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best. I’m looking forward to following you in 2019.

  4. Thanks so much for featuring my home tour. There were so many beautiful homes. Its such a great time of year to see everyone’s lovely home all decked out.
