and welcome to Christmas week. The countdown is officially on and I still can´t believe that Christmas is on Thursday. It is a huge blur for me this year and without any festivites it is a little unreal too.
We always made pancakes for Christmas morning but for this year I wanted to take it up a notch so how about a breakfast board??
Yes, my dearest friends it is easy, delicious and an absolute great idea. You could combine any kind of food. We made mini pancakes, waffles and bacon and put lots of toppings on the board too like jam, nutella, chocolate drops, berries and maple syrup.
This is THE real treat. I absolutely life for breakfast and was so so happy about it. To be honest I thought it would be harder to get everything done in time but it was very manageable.
Another great addition would be french toast. Or you serve a hearty breakfast board including bacon and fried eggs, avocado and toast plus it is so pretty on the eye.
I wasn´t sure if I would share a table scape this year cause all of our planned festivities have been cancelled due to the second lockdown but we are allowed to celebrate Christmas with our family so here we are. The minute I heard about the loosening of the rules for the Christmas days I was going all out creating a last minute table scape with things I already had.
I wanted to have a rustic table scape with lots of wood and greenery but ended up having no wood but lots of fir. I personally love how it turned out. The table cloth is old but I have never used it. I went with red plates and red gingham napkins for the country flair. For some glamour I added all golden accessories like the candle holders, napkin rings and the bootle brush trees.
As a little extra I love to add string lights. These are the fairy lights and make the faintest little light spots which are awesome for table lighting besides the candles.
I am pretty proud of myself for pulling this off in the short time I had. Normally I think about my Christmas dinner table scape for weeks.
every year I am looking forward to share our Christmas tree with you guys. I can go all out on Christmas decor, Christmas songs and just get in the spirit for the season.
This year I wanted a traditional color but also very glamorous so I decided to go with gold. You can never go wrong with one of the Christmas colors like gold or red. Since I had red last year this was the natural choice.
One thing I needed to switch out this year have been the lights. We always used string lights but to be honest it was a pain the a** to put them on every year. So I decided to get single lights this year which are turned on with a remote and let me tell you it is so convenient.
I got a pack of 30 pieces off of amazon and love them very much. They definitely add extra flair to the tree.
If you are looking for some extra inspiration for your Christmas tree I am linking my tree´s from the last years for you.
I have been decorating my front porch for Fall for years now and some years I love it better than others but in general if there are pumpkins and mums I am satisfied. Mums are the perfect Fall flowers as the colors are beautiful, I personally prefer the burgundy variation but I love them all.
And of course lots and lots of pumpkins – the ultimate Fall symbol. We went to the pumpkin patch two weeks ago and got some great pumpkins, besides the gorgeous orange ones a really cool green one and some pretty whtie ones. But let´s start on assembling. I wanted to share some of my tips and what has worked well for our entrance.
Tips on decoration your front porch
– add color – like different mums
– mix real pumpkins and ceramic ones
– add different flowers
– hang a Fall themed wreath on your door
– add different door mates – a bigger and a smaller one or a plain and a patterned one
– get a wodden sign for your entrance (I am definitely buying one for next year)
– play with heights (different pots, different sizes of flowers and pumpkins)
– use different planters to make it interesting
I love to deocrate for Fall whether it is indoors or outdoors. What is your favorite time to decorate?
