Happy finally Friday you guys,

I am so eager to finally share our Christmas tree with you guys. I opted for a classic color theme this year in red and green. The traditional Christmas colors. I personally think it is the prettiest combo I have done so far but this is probably one thing I say every year. 

The flocked white tree is from Fairy Trees I got from amazon three years ago and I still love it. I think the white makes is super christmassy and all the colored Christmas ornaments pop right out. 

So I added a bunch of tartan checked bows and glass candy canes to the tree. I like to have different ornaments and to play around with different textures and shapes.  The white tree skirt is also from amazon and cost about 20 Euro. I would say get one cause it totally adds dimension to the tree plus the white faux fur tree skirt looks great with presents on.

Another thing I enjoy decorating a lot is the mantle. Throwing a garland over it and adding the same color theme as on the tree not only makes it fitting in it also looks very festive. 

I am not ready decorating everything. My garlands up the stairs are still in the making but I can say that I have all the presents I need for this year. At least I have accomplished this. The rest of my decor should be up by the end of next week. Step by step is my new motto. I have to admit I am not as fit as I was before getting pregnant and I am tired more often. This bugs me a lot but I just can´t change it and in the end I am very happy the way it is. 

Did you decide on a color theme for your tree ? Have you set up already?

Wishing you a great weekend. I am going to post through the weekend so you can check back tomorrow or Sunday for new content.

Good morning my sweet friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am so happy about today´s blog post cause I am finally starting my my new home series. I have been showing all the rooms after we moved in about three years ago but now I came around to figure out what I want to do with each room and how it should look for the next couple years. There are still some tiny things to fix/do and also two rooms that aren´t quite ready yet but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The entryway has always bothered me a little since it is the first real room you can see after walking into the house and it should be eye catching but also timeless and classic and stylish. I haven´t even gotten a picture of our entry when we first moved in cause it looked so ugly (the walls needed to be painted so badly, there were no baseboards and the sideboard the owner left was hiddeous) but I tried my best and you can see my first attempt of making it look nicer in this post.

But sometimes better ideas come along our way or let´s just be honest I needed the console table in the living room so I was searching for a new option and my first try always leads me to Ikea (where I am usually never dissapointed and I wasn´t).

I got the Vittsjö shelf from Ikea in white and it looked really good in my entryway (I had planned it to go somewhere else in the first place but I didn´t like it at all so I changed pieces and voilá) matching all the other pieces of furniture and light fuxtures. The mirror has been replaced by this vintage looking one. I got it from a small store but I will link some similar options below. The rug and the tripod lamp were the only two pieces that stayed. The rug itself is from bonprix, a german retailer, but I might also find some similar options. I really love that it looks used like an old piece of luggage so it totally fits the theme here.

The tripod lamp is such a great addition to the entryway (and would probably be to any room but it needs space) cause it looks so artsy and cool. The lampshade and the tripod are sold separate so you could also use it as a hanging light fixture if you like. Both are from Ikea and as far as I know still available.

Other rooms I am planning on posting in the next couple weeks are our tiny powder bath, our kitchen and our master bath. Also I hope our master bedroom is going to be ready decorated soon.

Have a look at the HOUSE category on the blog for more inspiration and as always thanks for stopping by.

Holiday Party – frosty table scape in silver and white + Giveaway winners…

….

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
I am finally sharing the winter wonderland inspired table scape I set up for our holiday party two weeks ago!!! How can it possibly be almost the middle of December. Christmas is on the day two weeks away and there is so much I wanted to get done before. 

So first things first. Let´s start by sharing this adorable table scape with you so I can at least cross one thing of my list. 

I wanted to have an all whimsical and frosty table scape for this years Holiday party (party for our friends, not family there) so I incorporated lots of white and silver. By putting it together I had a little fear that it could turn out super boring but I absolutely loved it in the end.

I went with gray table runners speckled with white stars and snowflakes all over. To stay in the theme the platters where also silver as most of the table decor. The cotton napkins are also a light hue of gray. Meanwhile I prefer cotton napkins over disposable ones cause you just need to wash them and they are ready for their next use. Aaaand they add a much more luxe look to the whole table. The napkin rings are the most funny and pretty I have seen in a while and they completed the theme perfectly.
 So for the decoration I added a silver garland to beginn with. In the middle of the garland I put the candle holder including gray candles. For the rest of the table decor I opted for silver and white ornaments. I really love decorating with ornaments and since there are so many different shapes and colors it will probably never get old. To add some wintery and frosty feels I got a bunch of pinecones from our drug store and also a little wodden sleigh and glittery trees. 
The rest of it was kept pretty simple. White plates, silver cutlery and simple glasses. I really didn´t want to loose the focus on the decor.  
As a little guest favor I got these adorable little Raffaelo snowflakes.
It was such a nice evening with lots of stories and laugther and everybody was filled with good food and drinks as they left.
