Christmas is hands down my favourite holiday. This time of year you’ll find me questioning what I do for a living and longing that the North Pole was a real place where I could go become department head of gift wrapping. This year I was determined to make Christmas extra special being our first Christmas as a family.
I went a bit overboard this year shopping for extra decor for our place. I switched up our usual gold decorated tree for silver white and red accented with black and white stripe ribbon. Every year I do my rounds at all the stores to see what new decor is out. This year, I was really impressed with Canadian Tire (I went a little overboard, one of their associates stopped and asked me if I left anything on the shelves) I got a bunch of the ornaments for our tree from there as well as the decorations for around out condo and entrance table.

This smile lights up our whole lives (he’s starting to laugh now and it’s the best thing in the world)

Very special baby’s first christmas ornament from Baby J’s grandma
A lot of people always ask me about my bows! They are called ‘pull’ bows and you can get them from most places. I get all my wrapping accessories from Creative Bag! The tulle puffs I made myself…thinking next year a little tutorial?
I was pretty impressed with myself I haven’t made a gingerbread anything in years! I couldn’t resist buying this from Starbucks
This beautiful wrapping was from Chapters Indigo (now on sale) I usually like to stock up on wrapping after Christmas once it goes on sale!

These adorable PJs are from Petit Lem
My Favourite Places to Shop for Christmas Decor
Canadian Tire (next year I’ll be going here first!)
Pier 1 Imports (Beautiful ornaments including the Eiffel tower ornaments)
Pottery Barn (we bought our stockings, tree skirt and stocking holders from here)
Dollarama (great for buying christmas balls in bulk to fill in tumblers)
I hope you all enjoyed our holiday home tour.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
Lots of love
