The Weekly Edit + When do you decorate for the Holidays?

I have NO clue how it’s already Friday again! It feels like the weeks are seriously flying by these days. Before you know it we’ll all have trees up and Jared and I will have a baby oh so soon!

Speaking of which, when do you decorate for the holidays? I asked this on Instagram a few days ago because we’re finalizing our content for the holidays and the running question is — when are we too late on sharing our holiday inspirations?! Are you a last minute person that wants ideas right through December, or are you already decorated by the first?

Last year Jared and I literally threw a fully decorated fake tree into the back of the car the day of our annual Christmas party so we didn’t have to decorate one for shoots at the studio PLUS one for our house. We’re overachievers like that, haha!

On another note, I wanted to give a shoutout to the most helpful mother-in-law around! My MIL has seriously done SO much helping us with house renovations, cat-sitting, helping us cram to set up for events, you name it. I joke that I did well with Jared, but I did REALLY well with Nancy haha!

Now for some weekly edit links for your reading pleasure…

— Now THIS is some holiday spirit in the eyes of a child, haha!

— Can I be a part of this group?!

— You all seriously loving our gift guides so far, especially this one for the craft lover!

— Bought this gold mixing bowls and I’m obsessed

— My Pinterest addiction has been renewed, are you following along?!

— I’m finally starting my new Netflix list and recs thanks to your input!

  • I am in desperate, desperate need of gift ideas, thank you! Most of the birthdays in my family are this month, Christmas is right around the corner, we have a white elephant gift exchange at work, PLUS my fiance & I are getting little gifts for the people we’re asking to be part of our wedding party.

    As for decorating, I’m honestly happy the second I see twinkling lights so I love the people who go for it ASAP! We rarely spend Christmas at home, so not much goes into our own space.

    • Oh wow, that’s so much going on! you are a rock star! so glad you’re liking the gift guides and we definitely have more in store! And yess, we so feel the same about twinkle lights, they add instant cheer! xoxo

    Hello! I’m dying to start decorating for the holidays right this second but my house is still a mess while we finish our kitchen reno – BUT if we were done, I would have the house decorated by the second weekend in November and start sharing inspo ideas right away. I think November is the ideal month to share Christmas Inspo but I also feel that Thanksgiving gets totally cheated ;)

    • Oh no! We completely understand that reno life! We hope that everything get’s finished quickly and you can start enjoying all the decorating! And it totally does, haha! xoxo

    We decorate on the first of December. That is my husbands request, as I’d probably start decorating the second Halloween was over. I love the house decorated and it’s cozy and lots of fun for the kiddos too!

    • So feel the same! Decorations definitely make it all so much cozier!
