Our Front Room
Aaron surprised me with a beautiful new burlap wreath he bought from a lady at his school. I love having a wreath on the inside of the front door, safe from the weather and adding a little cheer to the room. My only purchase this year was a $5 "Merry Christmas" banner from Hobby Lobby. It's hanging out behind our pew in a makeshift gallery wall (including my weekly pregnancy update banner).
The Dining RoomThis room also got a major upgrade last January, and I'm in love with this space ever since its rustic dining room reveal. Now I love switching out the flowers in the rustic centerpiece that Aaron made me. It's such an easy way to change with the seasons (and our burlap runner always stays). I also hang my dollar store ornament garland that I made, and then finish it off with pine cones and a few pops of red, green, and white.
The BasementThis is where we spend most of our time hanging out. Since we already have dark green walls, I add red and black buffalo plaid stocking and pillows, and decorate our mantle. I also add a pretty wreath and red candle to give some holiday cheer to our "door" coffee table. I love the coziness of this space.
All in all, I'm a big believer that home decorating doesn't have to break the bank. I love figuring out new ways to bring little odds and ends into our Christmas decor, and I'm finding that sometimes simplifying and keeping things cozy ends up bringing the best results. Thanks for stopping by for the 2016 tour, y'all! May your days be merry and bright!

As I hung decorations earlier this week, I couldn't help but think about the little one who'd be crawling along on the floor next year. As each week passes, I cherish this stage of life and look forward to the next with eager anticipation. There is always so much to be thankful for, but this year my heart is truly overwhelmed. 👶🏽💕🎄#BabyKisontheway
