I never decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving has been celebrated. I’m not going to lie, it gets harder every year. I start hearing Christmas music November 1st and want to pour myself some hot cocoa, put on my slippers and watch Christmas movies. Christmas is my favorite holiday but the message of gratitude during Thanksgiving can not be passed up.
That said, I can still dream and plan about what fun events and decorating that is just around the corner! It’s a little disgusting how many totes of Christmas decor I own. I’ve vowed to not purchase one Christmas decoration this year despite Target’s amazing colorful line. Although I can not purchase any decorations, I can make decorations with the craft supplies I have on hand. I rounded up these black and white Christmas decorations as inspiration for my Christmas crafting session. I’m really drawn to the black and white minimalistic Scandinavian style.

Swoon. What are your thoughts on Thanksgiving being pushed aside each year here in America? Black Friday shopping yay or nay? (I’m way nay in case you were wondering). Do you have a favorite decoration you love putting out each year? I have several but my most recent favorite is a white and blue glitter nutcracker that Jeffrey and I bought at the Nutcracker Ballet three years ago. I’m excited and a bit stressed about finding all new places for my Christmas decor since we’re in a new house this year. What am I going to do without a mantle?!
