Hey there, Sweet Friends, are you a Thanksgiving decorator, or do you tend to just wait for the December holiday? Today on the blog, I’m talking about how I plan to transition from Fall Decor to Christmas Decor in my Home.
Let’s face it, I love decorating for the holiday’s. You can check out my post from last year, “5 Elements for a Radiant Rustic Fall Porch.”
In years passed, like, over 5 years ago, I really didn’t decorate for Thanksgiving. I’d put the cornucopia on the table and hang a wreath on the door and call it a day. But this year, I decided to shake things up just a little bit.
Now, you might be wondering why I have new Turkeys on the buffet….
Well, that’s a whole different story, I’ll have to tell you later. The Turkeys on my Thanksgiving Tablescape were actually Hens and it stirred up a little bit of controversy in blog land.
So, let’s get to the story about how I plan to transition from Fall Decor to Christmas Decor in my Home.
Remember in October when I traveled to Texas for the Inspire Workshop? You can read about the workshop and “My Favorite Shops in Waco, Texas.”
At the workshop, we talked and ate and talked and ate and admired KariAnne’s home. It was amazing, just like she is and the kitchen……
Well it was truly amazing. I mean isn’t the Fall Trees with the Leaves and Pumpkins just adorable, not to mention the old Red Truck?
When I was at the workshop, the kitchen decor gave me an idea that I wanted to take home. Today, Sweet Friends, I am sharing it with you. I’m giving a big shout out to KariAnne of Thistlewood Farms and Barbara of Gasthaus On The Meadow. Those two were behind all the inspiration and ideas that I will be using in my own home for years to come.
The transition from Fall to Christmas Decor is always tricky for me. But now, I have a plan and I think it’s grand.
Fall Christmas Trees!
Are you wondering what my plan is?
This year, for Thanksgiving, the usual cornucopia on the table, and my fall wreath on the door, get some friends. This year, I decided to do things a little different.
I like big Christmas Trees and little Christmas Trees and I like them all over my house. In my Holiday Home Tour 2018 on You Tube last year, I had Five Christmas Trees. Check it out if you missed it.
This year I started with the buffet decorating. I took my three baby Christmas Tress and turned them into Fall Trees, added some turkeys and pinecones and bam….
After Thanksgiving, my decorating will be so easy because I’ll just remove the Fall Leaves and Pinecones and Turkeys and make room for the Ornaments and Santas and Reindeers.
I started with the baby Christmas Trees, but the big Christmas Trees will be decorated this week, just in time for Thanksgiving. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Facebook to see all the photos.
Note aside; next year my Fall Trees will be up on November 1st, I’m just a few weeks behind this year. I was kinda dealing with the hens…
Note aside; those colorful Turkeys are chocolate so you probably won’t see them next year.
Just in case you wanna get started on your Fall Trees, here area some of my favorite products.
Don’t forget the Scented Pinecones.
So that’s how I plan t o transition from Fall Decor into Christmas Decor. Do you have a plan? Now go out there and create something.
