Baby it’s Cold Outside – Holiday Inspiration

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 0 0

It’s no secret that I can’t.even.wait for Christmas this year. I mean, I’ve already made homemade eggnog and it’s not even December yet. Every weekend I ask J if I can play Christmas carols and he raises one incredulous eyebrow and says, “December 1st.”

So until December 1st I wait to really get into the holiday spirit. We have a date to get our tree on the 1st and then I will play so much Bing and Dean and really dive right in. But it’s never too early to start pinning holiday decor inspiration! Here’s a few I love –

Autumn Picnic Inspiration

It’s decided. I must host an autumn picnic dinner party.

Be still my heart. An outdoor picnic in autumn encompasses so many of my loves – eating outside, cozy weather, string lights, red wine, yummy warm food, rustic tablesettings, and candlelight.

I was telling J last night about my grand plans of hoisting our dinner table up to our roof and how I was going to decorate the table and cook so much food, and he just stared at me, amused at all my exuberance, and said, “Sure, we can do that. But won’t it be cold?” To which I launched into more detail about all the blankets and cozy candlelight and wine, and he just laughed and told me to organize it and he would carve the chickens {because I want to bake whole chickens stuffed with lots of garden herbs}. One thing J is good at is indulging my imagination ;)
