I am very excited to start decorating the house for the Holidays, it's one of my most favorite times of year (a little behind this year, or so I feel since Dec is tomorrow!!!)!!! I love all the little touches sprinkled around the house, little vignettes of goodness! This year I want to keep with a similar theme as last year - cream, ivory, sparkle, white and gold. However I've had a weird feeling this year - I don't really want a tree. 

I can't pin point why but it'll be the first time in years. But then I started asking myself - do you need a tree to be festive? With Wreaths, Garland, Sparkly lights & White. 

And when in doubt add more sparkle?! Right???!!! 

We have a tall vase just like that and a great expanse of counter in our open living room/kitchen combo..... Who know's if I'll end up with a tree, but you can sure bet there will be lights and sparkle and ornaments every where until I decide!!! And I'll be sure to share!!! 

Have you gotten/getting a tree? Anyone else feel this way?

  2. great ideas! i love putting bright ornaments in a big vase too! xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  3. That jeweled wreath is AMAZING! We just bought our first real tree last doesnt feel like Christmas without it although honestly it is a lot of work...

  4. Anything with sparkle!! I love all of your inspiration shots.

  5. You can def don't need a tree to be festive. Wreaths and sparkle and garland are easier, not as messy, and just as festive! Love these ideas!

  6. We usually get a real tree, but didn't last year and our place still felt perfectly festive - I used the ornaments we typically put on the tree everywhere else (in vases, hung them of branches in a vase...). However, this year I think we are going back to a real tree so maybe I did miss having one!

  7. I haven't gotten anything for decorations yet!! I'm going to get a fake tree soon. I love sparkly things!
