Happy Friday gorgeous! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Any big plans for the weekend? We have a couple of Christmas parties to go to! Our weekend will be full of ugly Christmas sweaters, gift exchanges, Christmas carols, good food and friends! 

This week I've been completely inspired by a classic Christmas! This season, more than any other, I have been just crazy about timeless red!

Christmas in the Formal

This Season I have been decorating with neutrals, natural elements and pops of red! We finally finished painting our formal dining room furniture and I just love how it looks! I will share the full reveal in another post ;) One day while I was out and about shopping at a local hardware store, I spotted some beautiful cedar garland and snagged a 12 foot bunch! 


The smell of the fresh cedar is just sensational! The perfect addition to any Holiday decor! I simply swagged it over my formal table and cut it to my desired length. I rearranged some of my mercury glass pieces, vases and votives, as well as, a few sporadic glittery mini bulbs into the design. I love using candles in my center pieces because it gives it such a romantic, intimate feel! 





I added an additional swag of cedar on my buffet, as well as, a fresh boxwood wreath! The beautiful shades of green mix perfectly with the neutral tones and pops of red!

Joy to the World!

One of my absolute favorite Christmas carols is "Joy to the World". I catch myself singing it all the time throughout the season. When I was a little girl, my Aunt Alta would have me sing it to her over and over! She was in her late 80's and well into her 90's while I was growing up! Memories like that, I hope I never forget! I'm also teaching it to my little ones at Church this year to perform during the Christmas Eve service! Just to hear their little voices proclaim the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ melts my heart!


I've created this cute chalkboard printable for you to enjoy with your Christmas decor, give as a gift or even print off and use as a gift tag! The possibilities are endless! I hope you enjoy!

Christmas Cheese-ball

The holidays are the busiest time for family gatherings, open houses, ugly sweater parties, Christmas parties, birthdays and more! Add a little bit of thought to each gathering you go to this season by bringing a simple, but delicious cheese-ball! This cheese-ball is perfect for Christmas with its white, green and red! Your guests will be wowed at how tasty this simple appetizer is!


You will need one block of cream cheese, two stalks of green onion, thinly sliced beef, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce and chopped pecans for coating (optional). Let your cream cheese sit out for a good 5-10 minutes to soften up, it will be easier to work with. Begin to slice your beef. I used half of the package for one cheese ball. Cut into very little squares. Grab your stalks of green onion and chop fine. Add cream cheese, beef and green onions to a bowl, add a dash of hot sauce and Worcestershire. Mix all together with your hands, smooshing all ingredients throughout. Form together and roll between your hands to create a ball. If you're going to use pecans for coating (which I recommend because it's super yummy), begin to chop them into fine pieces and simply smash them against your cheese-ball. Refrigerate until serving and any extra. Serve with crackers!
