We’re a week away from Christmas and social media is full of beautiful holiday decorating tips and images of nicely decorated homes, gorgeous front entrances, and of course, stunningly decorated trees. I look at all of those images, read all of the tips, and think,
Please. Someone please just do it for me!
Here’s the truth, I hate holiday decorating. As most of you know, I enjoy the crash and bang. I love pulling together a space that involves construction.
Shopping for tile, flooring, designing cabinets, etc. – I get all jacked-up when I have to shop for a renovation. Shopping for holiday decorating items? No thank you.
Holiday Decorating Tip
I have many great designer friends who LOVE holiday decorating. They love it so much they have written great blog posts with their tips. As the Mr. and I celebrate our son’s college graduation this weekend, I thought I would be fun to do a little round-up of some great designers and their tips for decorating for the holidays! I hope you enjoy them.
