I wasn't sure how to display our Christmas cards this year but after searching on Pinterest, I decided to copy this idea. We put string around our kitchen cabinets and then used clothespins to hang up the cards. We have a lot of cards, I didn't even take pictures of them all!
Dan is in charge of hanging up the mistletoe each year so he is always careful to put it in the most strategic spot. His choice: the middle of the kitchen.
My mother-in-law gave us a beautiful Christmas cactus that is sitting in the middle of our table and blooming in such gorgeous colours. It's so cheery to have it in such a central spot. I love centerpieces for my table.
Another exciting thing this year is that our stockings are actually hung by the fire! Last year they just stayed in a pile on the floor since we didn't ever get around to hanging them. Dan didn't want to put nails in the mantle so I purchased 3M hooks to put up this year. And yes, the itsy bitsy stocking on the far right is Mia's.
So there you have it. Some last minute Christmas items to show you. All of my posts for this next week will be scheduled as we'll be traveling for the holidays to different houses. I will be back with some updates on how Christmas went early in the new year.
Merry Christmas everyone!
