Happy Holiday's inter-web fam!
I hope you have been kind and caring to yourselves and your families over the past few months since we have last chatted! December is one of my favorite months, mainly because it is my birthday month, but also because it is all about celebrating with family and friends. Decorating is a huge part of it as well! I am one to change out dish towels, plants, and even rugs to better align the home with the current season! Though I may be an extreme, it is fun to add a little to your home and make it "hygge" (lit and cozy).
I am Russian Jewish so every year I love to have a New Year's Tree. I explain all about the tradition in last year's holiday blog post. Long story short, I always have a tree even though I am jewish. This year I opted for a mini- 3 foot- flocked tree from King of Christmas. Flocked trees have been all over instagram this year. Bloggers in their pjs, with hot cocoa mugs, fur rugs, and throws in the background, etc, etc. I'm sure you know what I am talking about!
This year I decided to take a stab at the infamous "Hanukkah Bush." I have accumulated a good amount of blue and white ornaments over the years. I even have a few Hanukkah themed ones my mom got me (in the most jewish way ever😂) on a very large discount at a Bloomingdales after Christmas sale! Overall the tree turned out super cute and festive. I thought it would be fun to share it with you and get everyone in the holiday spirit!
Here are some of the shots I took while enjoying a freshly brewed Nespresso latte 👌🏻 under my very own Hanukkah bush:
The tree I ordered was this 3ft artificially flocked spruce:
It came in a long slender box, under 5 lbs. It was very easy to set up and there wasn't too much fall-age from the flocked branches! I was worried about the mess it might cause but it was minimal.
The Hanukkah themed ornaments are by Kurt Adler and were purchased from Bloomindales
Regardless of what you celebrate, make sure your home makes you smile during this time of year. For me, decorating, is the way to go. Just a few little festive pieces go a long way.
