Christmas Come Early

We haven't actually decorated a house for Christmas in 2 years, its not always worth the work when you leave said house at Christmas time! This year we have house guests in December so I decided to decorate BUT I was going to wait until after Thanksgiving, that is until we got 16+ inches of snow last Tuesday! So Mom and I were snowed in all day and decided to decorate my house! Which by the way is much more fun with help and Christmas movies on all day!
 This year was kinda  crap-shoot.... we opened all the boxes labeled Christmas in the basement and used all the "hodge podge" of items from years past! But we made it work! I enjoyed tying in the black and white in the kitchen this year, it gives is a more modern look!
 New Christmas candles from Anthropologie are a must!
 I even found some really cute old Scentsy Warmers that I broke out for the Holidays too!
 I didn't want to go overboard, I wanted to keep the decorations minimal and really let the new house shine for it's first Holiday season! ha!
 You can't really see it here but the only new purchase is the black and red buffalo check table runner from Pottery Barn which I LOVE!
 I re-did our chalkboard wall in the dining room too, which is a very big mess while it's happening might I add!
 Ta-da!!! Here is our living room!!! I can't tell you how much we love our fireplace, we really wanted the modern look and it looks so nice!
 Oscar wasn't feeling well the day we decorated so for about an hour Mom's job was to hold this sweet guy like a little baby. He has good days like yesterday were he runs around like a crazy man but other days when he begs all day to be held.
BIG thanks to Mom for helping and we loved seeing the look on Matt's face when he showed up for dinner and had no idea were were going to decorate the whole house! ha!
