Hello friends and welcome to those of you who are visiting from Lucy over at Craftberry Bush! I am thrilled to have you all here today as we share in a fun “Here Comes Santa” Blog Tour! We had the pleasure of receiving some beautiful products from Grandin Road that are a part of this tour too.
Here at our place we enjoy the tradition of Santa Claus and eagerly countdown the days for his arrival. While this is not the purpose of why we celebrate Christmas, we choose to make him a part of the big birthday celebration.
Cookies are carefully set out with a thank you note and a delicious glass of milk. Truthfully, we have been doing this same thing since I was a little girl…
(Christmas Tree from King of Christmas)
It doesn’t have to be fancy and in fact sometimes they are homemade and others they are store bought. Mostly we use our cookie baking leftovers and know that Santa will enjoy them just the same ;).
Our kiddos believe he finds his way down the chimney, takes a little break (on our DIY sofa bed) with some sweets and then leaves a present for each of them by the tree.
The stockings are always hung where he also leaves them some wrapped essentials inside. Important necessities such as toothpaste, mouthwash, toothbrushes, new socks, chapstick and more. These are extra special though during this time of year as they are covered in favorite characters and in their favorite flavors from Santa himself.
The theme is neutral but wintry in nature. Simple elements such as glittery bulbs and pretty flocked trees make it feel like home.
We make sure to bring in lots of greenery and line the mantle with fresh cut clippings from the yard. That night we can turn on the candles to light his way through the dark…
Presents are wrapped with easy bows and Santa’s gifts always have a unique paper so we can easily tell the difference =).
Twinkle lights are what make the room. And gold accents shine extra bright with an amber glow on the diamond shaped mirror.
Whether we get snow on Christmas or not, we make sure to leave some of our own here and there.
To say we are excited as we prep for all the joy is an understatement. It is my true pleasure to include these sweethearts in memorable traditions that evoke feelings of warmth and home.
Most of all that they understand the true gift and that we can treasure that every day of the year.
Thank you so much for joining me today and don’t forget to head over to the next stop on the tour at Kristen’s Ella Claire.
Each of these ladies are so very talented and here is the entire list so that you can stop by each one!
