When it comes to decorating for the holidays I just. can't. stop. So this year I decided to share some of my decorating joy with you all! Nothing says Christmas cheer at a holiday party more than the atmosphere and decor. So stick the stamps on those party invites and pull up a chair to get some fresh inspiration for your holiday gatherings. 

These moss topiaries act almost like mini modern Christmas trees and bring a great amount of height to this set-up. Strewn with a glitzy garland that is adorned with ornaments makes them super festive. 

Don't even get me started on these stockings. I am in love. They are reversible and can be hung FOUR DIFFERENT WAYS. I don't even have to fill them, they are a gift in themselves. (Plus they only took an hour to make 2! Hello happy homemaker!) 

These cinnamon scented pine cones and fresh greenery at the base of the topiaries not only smell AMAZING but bring some outdoorsy love to the mix. I also love using photos around holiday decor because it keeps it so personal without everything looking too themed and cheesy. 

Well hello Mr. Claus! 

Keeping it classy this year with a more vintage inspired tree. Can't go wrong with mercury glass. 

This arrangement was inspired by a Christmas tree and was designed to feel like one too. Candles bring a cheery glow and glittered pine cones match the ones on the tree right beside it. A jar of gold bells and glossy ornaments add a festive touch. My favorite part is the tea towel base that has "Jingle Bells" on it that was given to me by a friend. Thanks Becca :) 

 It is this time of year that I am glad all of my appliances are red (and during Razorback football season of course)! You wouldn't be a holiday party "hostess with the mostest"without a Christmas apron either, so I just had to document mine that I made a few years ago. 

A big part of hosting that will set you apart is decorating areas that are not the highlight, but will possibly be seen. Especially bathrooms and rooms around the gathering area. Fresh pine branches and a bunch of scented pine cones over your bed is kind of the best way to wake up anyway! 

And to seal the deal... a perfect little berry pomander. Who doesn't love a good pomander!? 

Hope you enjoyed the holiday happiness! Merry Christmas parties to all and happy celebrating!
