Happy December 1st everyone! One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the decorations and as of this week our apartment is full of festive cheer. Ahh it makes me SO happy!

We didn’t get a tree last year because we were in Europe at the beginning of December, so I could not be more excited to have one in our apartment this season. How gorgeous is this pre-lit flocked tree from Bed Bath & Beyond? This is actually the first time we’ve ever had a flocked tree and I’m obsessed. The branches are basically coated in sparkly white fluff and it just looks so pretty with all the grey and beige hues in our living room. I added this faux fur tree skirt to keep with the cozy theme!
Nick and I always buy an ornament or two on every trip and obviously had to get this one when we were in London. Also can you believe this photo of us from eight years ago? We used to make a holiday picture frame ornament every year, but it’s probably been four years or so since the last one. Jeez we look so young here!

Since we live in a small apartment, there isn’t a lot of extra space to decorate (what I would give for a fireplace…) so I love slim decor that can fit on a windowsill like this piece here and this garland I draped across our media console.
Growing up my family always decorated our fireplace with nutcrackers and Santa figurines. The brown fellow on the right we actually found on our last trip to France at a Christmas shop in a small village on the Alsace wine route. So happy we had enough room in our suitcases to bring him home with us!
