It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like....

A few weekends ago, I hauled most of our Christmas decor out, and got a bit of the stink-eye from Mr. SP when I asked him to put the tree up. True, it was reeeeeally early, even for us. But if you follow me on InstaGram, you noticed we went to California last week to spend Thanksgiving with family. It was a glorious week stuffed with love, laughs, food, Disney and beach walks...and not one bit of Christmas. We gave Thanksgiving our full attention.

But you can bet your boots my family was thrilled to come home to a fully-decorated tree this weekend! It immediately put us in the spirit of the holiday, and I spent most of yesterday decking out  more of the house. I stuck by my goal of keeping it simple this year, and kept the decor to a few focal spots. Here's a little peek at the festivities...

Did you know you can scoop up live tree limbs at most every Christmas tree lot? My local Home Depot has a big box and it's free game. I use the branches in vases and as garland filler on the mantels.

Looks like another colorful Christmas at the Sugarplum Casa! I'm thrilled to take part in Bridget's 'Welcome to the Season' blog hop, and hope you'll check out the rest of these talented gals for more holiday inspiration! I can't wait to settle in with my coffee and soak up all the festiveness!

  14. Every time I see your colorful decor, I want to do it. We used to do a crazy colorful white tree in my mom's sunroom, but we haven't gone as all out lately...I'm thinking I need to go to mom's and spice it up- living vicariously! You're inspiring, as always! :)
