It has been such an eventful/historic week with the Presidential election! While we anxiously awaited the news, we decided to start decking the halls….
Yes, I know it is too early for some (we have barely made a dent in the Halloween candy! Haha!) BUT it is 2020, and I say, do what brings you joy! Whether you bust out Christmas now or wait until after Turkey day, I will continue to share some resources for festive decor and our progress as we decorate our home.
A little recap of what I’ve shared lately!
Christmas Mantel Decor
I decided to decorate our mantel for Christmas….two different ways!
Find the details about both mantels (stockings, tags, mirrors, signs, laterns, etc.) on this post HERE.
Which is more your taste…..nuetral or pops of red?
Stocking Tags and a Coupon Code
My talented friend Mikel made these large chalkboard stocking tags that are just $5 with FREE shipping with code MERRYCRISP through the end of the day on 11/8.
Find them HERE.
These were cut by hand and then hand lettered with paint, so they will not smear or smudge. I love what they add to our mantel!
Aside from your stockings, they are cute used as name cards on your place setting at your table for Christmas, or anytime throuhgout the year (Thanksgiving, Easter, etc.)
They are available in Mikel’s shop HERE.
You can find this ADORABLE snowflake tray/charger HERE.
Mikel also made these unique leather stocking tags!
They are hand cut from quality leather. She hand letters the names, and then her handwriting is burned into the leather tags!
They are so cool and unique for a more modern/boho vibe!
These are $12 with FREE shipping with code MERRYCRISP at checkout.
Find them HERE.
