{These Are a Few of My Favorite Things}: Holiday Favorites!

December 14, 2011
When it comes to the holidays, I think it's safe to say that most people have their little list of things they look forward to most during the season. And believe me, I'm no exception. I have quite a few favorite holiday things. So I thought... why not share them with you? So here you have it... my short list of the things I love most during Christmas time. First up on my list are holly berries...


Because what's not love about a beautiful wreath with little pops of color throughout? Holly berries are definitely one of my favorite ways to use nature in my decor.


Next on my list would definitely be ornaments! Because whether it's a handmade ornament or one that's been passed on through generations, each ornament truly does have a story behind it and I love that!


What's the next on my list, you ask? That would definitely have to be all kinds of winter fun. From sipping hot cocoa to snow sledding, there is never a shortage of fun stuff to get into during this time of year.


And since I'm such a foodie, I cannot go without mentioning holiday baking! Christmas cookies are so fun to make, plus not to mention tasty! A tradition in my family is to make batches of different kinds!

A landscape blanketed in snow is definitely on my lists of favorites. Because what is Winter time without a little snowfall? Okay, maybe that's silly to say! But you can't deny that snowflakes make Christmas feel a little more special.


Up next on my list would definitely be pretty holiday drinks! Because what better time to get creative than this? I love these festive little stirrers! The perfect thing to serve up at a holiday party.


Speaking of holiday parties... one of things I love most about them is the fact that they give you an excuse to go shopping! Because getting something new to wear is always fun! Am I right? Plus, it's definitely fun to play hostess during this time of year.


And what's last on my list, you ask? That would definitely be the snow days! Oh, and snowy kisses of course. There's nothing sweeter than cuddling up with the one you love and getting snowed in for the day... So tell me, would any of these make your list of holiday favorites? Oh, and which colors are you favorites?
