12 Inspiring Christmas Ideas from the Linky Parade

Hi Guys, here I am for a second time today. In case you are looking for

 you can find my first entry, an Advent Decoration by clicking the link. 


But I promised you I’d show you my favorites of the Christmas Inspiration Linky party, so here I am. I really didn’t want to withhold this from you because I had so much fun visiting all the Christmas homes. The creativity and beauty in blogland is truly amazing. 

So let’s hit the road……

 Every home tour starts at the front door. I’d love to hang a wreath this beautiful on my door…….



 The hallway door is nicely decorated with a jingle bells doorhanger.



What will be waiting on the other side?


A farmhouse table with a beautiful centerpiece!


 Since we are in the kitchen, let’s zoom out and take a look around. Wow, this is a beautiful white kitchen. And I love that tree in the vintage trunk. 



Speaking of white. I am dreaming of a white Christmas…

One as beautiful as this:



I am dreaming of all the Christmas sweets too. I love December so much. Because of Christmas and all the coziness and love that comes with the festivities, but also because December is the month in which I indulge. Indulge in sweets like this moosemunch popcorn yumminess.

Kitchens deserve their own decorations, don’t you think. They are the heart of the home. And even in the smallest kitchen one could tuck in a little decoration like this. 



Now it is time to move out of the kitchen, and into the craft room. To sew up a tree skirt. Because come on, this tree skirt is so gorgeous I know you want it. Full tutorial in the post.



And every tree needs to be decorated. How about a sheet music paper chain. 



Speaking of sheet music. I love this next craft project too. A vintage inspired tree from spools and paper. It would look so lovely in my craft room. 



Talking about decorating all rooms in the house. Let’s not forget the bedroom. Isn’t this color palette so fresh and cheerful! Love.



One last fun project. Look at this burlap advent calendar and family activity tree in one. Cuteness.

    The tree in the white trunk in the kitchen is my friend Anne’s blog. Isn’t her kitchen beautiful!? And she’s beautiful too. Great inspiration you have shown us today. I am just starting my decorating but hope to join the 13th party. Thanks so much for visiting me today. I am following you now and look forward to more of your beautiful posts. xoxo

      Only a very thin layer of snow here, didn’t last though. But it is definitely getting colder. Thank you for participating in the linky party. ♥ Marianne
