We’re getting into the Holiday spirit here at the Farmhouse and that means one of my favorite things — Decorating! Since Christmas is my favorite time of year, getting my house decorated is pretty much my first step in getting those holiday spirit juices flowing. However, like everything in the farmhouse, we have to do it on a budget. As much as I’d love to run right out and buy the whole Pottery Barn or Crate & Barrel holiday catalogs and call it a day, that’s just not feasible in my household. Read below to uncover some of my decorating tips to get the farmhouse ready for the Holidays without busting the budget.
If you are like me, you’re dreading Holiday Gift planning. Sure, the idea of thinking up thoughtful and fun gifts to give those special people on your shopping list might be fun, but the reality of fighting the crowds searching for that *right* gift and spending all sorts of money that we may or may not have. . .that can sometimes be a very different story. Plus, the list of folks to shop for just seems like it grows and grows. Then, there’s the process of shipping gifts to and fro if you’re recipients live out of town. Hate to break it to you, but that’s more fighting the crowds, more spending money and more items being added to the ever-growing Holiday To-Do list.
