Christmas Inspiration

While Thanksgiving is only a couple of days away, I find I am more excited to decorate our home for Christmas. This is our second year in our current home, and I really enjoyed decorating for Christmas last year. I had lucked out and found some beautiful boxwood wreaths, paperwhites, and mini trees at Trader Joes. I decorated the entire house with them and it looked so lovely. I am hoping to score big again at Trader Joe's, and I'm hoping that they will have similar greens this year. If they don't, then Terrain is my back up plan (OK, Terrain might have to be plan A because, well--SO PRETTY!).
I've been collecting all sorts of inspiration on Pinterest and hope I can reproduce something like these images below with candles and greens.

It's dark out...

...but what I love about this time of year is that you can have candles lit all around the house at 5pm and suddenly it doesn't feel so bad...in fact it feels pretty nice.
I love reusing my Bonne Maman jars with tea lights and placing them on my window sill. The jam is delicious, but let's face it the jars are the real prize!
