Buon Natale! Are you guys all excited for Christmas? With only six days away I thought that’s about time to make our Home Bunch feel a bit more festive. I’ve told you how much I love this time of the year and I feel this year is even more special with our newest addition to the family, Matthew. Sure he’s way too small to understand the beauty of this season, but I know some day he will appreciate seeing all the pictures of his very first Christmas.
How do you celebrate this beautiful day? I think it’s important to create memories, create family traditions around it. My husband is in charge of our Christmas Eve dinner. He prepares a very special meal for us. Christmas morning is the happiest moment of it all! We open the presents as soon the kids wake up and after that we have a wonderful breakfast with all of our favorite food, like, different kind of cheeses, meat (such as salami, turkey breast, ham), fruit trays, cakes and my favorite Christmas treat: Panetone! We spend the day together, playing with the kids and their new toys, there’s always a classic show playing on TV and the fireplace is always roaring. Later that day, I start preparing our classic Christmas dinner. Unfortunately we don’t have our family living close to us, but I must say that I’m actually okay with it. The more I see my family growing, the more I enjoy celebrating the holidays the ways we do, creating our own way to make this day a little more magical, a little more remarkable and it feels amazing to teach my kids the true meaning of this season: the love of being together, the appreciation of each other and especially to the One who has taught us all about the real meaning of love.
I hope you guys enjoy these inspirational Christmas decor, but remember that what really matters at this time isn’t how many gifts you have under the tree or how much money you’ve spent with all the decorations, but who you’re sharing this moment with and how much you’re enjoying this day, after all, Christmas just feels like Christmas if we can find a peaceful moment to take a look around and see smiley faces.
Old and New
Sometimes a little goes a long way. This space feels so elegant.
I like seeing many different elements in a mantel just like this one.
I adore the “Waiting for Santa”. Isn’t it a great idea?
This is very beautiful and perfect if you don’t have small children around the house. If you do, you can always put the candles out of their reach.
Is green your favorite color? If so, take a look at this very “green Christmas”!
How gorgeous is this chair! Perfect color to put by this Christmas tree.
This is yet another brilliant idea: hang the candles above the table. Impressive!
Color Me Lover
Christmas is the time where we cannot be afraid of color and should use it deliberately.
I See Stars
I love this Christmas tree. My favorite kind of ornaments are stars and I like the idea of candles too, as long their battery ones for fire hazard.
Can it get any cozier than this?
I always give an extra attention to gift wrapping. I think it shows how much you care.
Make your home feel inviting to your guests, including outdoors.
Make sure to not overlook the details when decorating. Often, beauty is composed by details.
White & Red
I love this white Christmas tree and the red wrapping paper.
This is just the cutest ornament I’ve seen for a while.
Be creative when decorating your Christmas tree. You can even use some jewelry just as seen here. Isn’t it an interesting idea?
Preparing a beautiful table setting is as important as the food. Make it merry!
Flowers are always so welcoming.
I love seeing everything shinning… It simply adds more magic to this time of the year.
Turquoise and white? My newest obsession!
The numbers are fun, but I’d like it even more with letters. You can easily do it with glue and sand or even glitter.
The Christmas Spirit should be carried in every room of our homes.
Blue, white and silver. Classic.
I adore this space.
How happy is this space! Very cottage-y.
This is such a cute Christmas tree: short and chubby.
Perfect size for a foyer.
Yet another great idea for a foyer.
This is the perfect size if you live in a small space. You don’t need a giant tree to make it beautiful.
What about this tree? Many of us would not look at it as a good choice, but I think it’s incredibly adorable!
Very natural and the idea of hanging gifts on it is fun!
Isn’t this super cute?
Any kid would adore this tree and it’s a great size for them to decorate it.
The classic red and green should always find a place in our homes when Christmas.
I really love seeing classic toys around Christmas trees. They add a timeless feel.
Decorate with whatever makes you smile!
How gorgeous is to decorate with pine cones? I adore them.
This tree would look amazing in a beach house.
How many ornaments you decorate your tree with is always a personal choice, but I always think a full Christmas tree feels merrier. Don’t you agree?
So, do you feel inspired now? I really hope you’ve enjoyed seeing all of these pictures and I also hope this post helps you get in the Christmas spirit! I certainly can’t wait for it!
Wishing you all a very happy day and a blessed week! See you guys back here tomorrow for our “Cottage of the Week”!
