Bits of Cheer

Today I'm linking up with my beautiful friend Jess for her Bits of Cheer holiday link up!
My little bits of cheer today is our tree and other Christmas decor around the house
My husband and I still have the smaller fake tree that we had in our condo, and plan on getting a real tree (or at least a bigger one) once we have kids. For now, this mid-sized guy does the trick and adds the perfect amount of light and holiday cheer to our living room:
We got the cute little burlap tree skirt last week and I think it's adorable!

Last year we got two stockings from MG's mom, and then picked up a small one for Cooper--all of which are hung on our front banister--I think Cooper's is adorable.

One of my favorite additions to our decor last year was this holiday card tree holder--it's always interesting figuring out how to display all of your pretty friends' cards, and this makes them into the decor!
Over Thanksgiving, my sister-in-law brought us a little gift in this table runner which looks perfect on our entry table--I think it adds such a pretty touch when you walk in and gives a nice clean basis to display the other Christmas decor on the table
We have some other decor in the basement, but nothing too over the top. For now, this is a good amount of decor for us--as the years pass, I'm sure we'll collect more :)

And a little bit of extra cheer before I go:
Choose joy.
And bits of cheer :)

  6. I always love hearing how people display their Christmas cards because it seems like I'm needing a better option than just hanging them on the fridge. The tree is such a cute idea and it displays them so beautifully!

  28. Love your decor! Brady has a stocking, too :) Such a great idea to display Christmas cards - I usually hang them on my fridge, but it either fills up or they start to fall off and I'm picking them up 15 times a day!
