I love holidays. They fill my heart to the brim with bliss. But only the winter holidays. Halloween through Valentine’s day, but you could probably convert me to loving St. Patrick’s day if you could show me how it looks with modern decorations. Maybe.
I especially love the anticipation that is associated with a holiday. Each month you have a wonderful day to get ready/prepare for/do things for, aside from the normal grind. I’ve seen chalkboard countdowns for Halloween that I want in my life starting October 1! Free Printable Here

We don’t have a fireplace, but I am suddenly jealous of everyone that does. And will continue to be as I look at decorating inspo through New Years! I think a console table for example would work well in our place — to help anchor decorations on the wall so they aren’t floating.
I think a perfect option for our place would be something similar to the IKEA Micke in the living room. Something simple, white, and not deep. But also functional as a workspace year round.
I love mason jars + hanging banners/garland for all holidays. For example, I think mason jars filled with different types of candy corn would be the bees knees.
Add some candles, lots of pumpkins, and fun prints and I’m ready to move on to planning a perfect costume trio.
