#HouseOfHouser 1st Christmas

It's M & I's first Christmas in our home together. We were so giddy setting everything up.. considering keeping it up for a whileeee. February, what?! ;) 

My mom goes all out for Christmas every year. She has several big tree's throughout her house.. 5 to be exact. I got my love of decorating from her. Our little home would be super overwhelmed if I did all of that. But I did want each room to have a touch of Christmas. 

Here are some pictures of our decor we put up. These were taken with my iphone so not the best quality!  

Excuse our plants.. we're not the best with our landscaping. If you have any suggestions, leave a comment below :)

We have a magnolia tree in our front yard. So I decided to bring in some leaves for more fresh greenery!

I wanted my whole house to smell like Christmas! Who doesn't? So I went to our local tree farm and asked for any scraps of branches. I had to cut them down and make it look full by adding, cutting, adding some more. But now my whole house smells SO wonderful! Worth the sap all over my hands :)

What are some of your favorite ways to decorate for Christmas? I would love to hear fun traditions, or cute ways to highlight the most wonderful time of the year!!
