decorating for christmas and the holidays M Loves M

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope all of you who celebrate are having a wonderful and magical day with your family and friends. I’m currently still in pajamas and drinking my coffee at almost 1pm, so you can say I’m definitely taking it easy today! The last few weeks have been busy with blog content and I can’t believe I haven’t had a chance until now to share my Decorating for Christmas post! Be prepared for a lot of photos but I hope you like it and find some inspiration for next year.

Before dinner I love serving a cocktail with a cheese, nuts and olives. This cranberry cocktail recipe with champagne is really delicious!

I put this post together with Pottery Barn which let me tell you was one of the biggest honors! PB is one of my absolute favorite home stores so to be asked to contribute really made my week/month/year! If you have some time, check out my feature on their site and the interview!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day! Wishing you and your families the very best throughout the holiday season!
