Friday favorites & last min Amazon shopping

Not done Christmas shopping?

Haven't even started?

I am dedicating this weeks Friday favorites post to those last minute shoppers.

Amazon Prime was probably invented for people like you. 

But not worries, add some of these great items to your cart, checkout, and wait for them to be delivered.

I've rounded up some of my favorites for everyone on your last minute list.

If you don't have anyone on your list that would love these cute Uggs, I will happily send you my address.

Those paired with this super soft and comfortable sweater = the perfect outfit.

I would wear this, and I am sure any man or boy would.

Know someone that doesn't have an echo show? They need one~!

I feel like everyone needs a stylish insulated bottle. 

Does your Dad think he's super funny? This is the perfect gift and will have everyone laughing.

This backpack comes with a laptop sleeve. The perfect carry on for anyone.

I own these knockoff slippers and I promise they are so comfortable and soft!

Everyone raves about this back and neck massager. I might need one for myself.

Coffee lover? This is also on my wish list.

Wine lover? This is a great 2 bottle insulated wine tote.

These silicone wine glasses would be so cute to gift with it.

I can't think of anyone that wouldn't want these AirPods.

If you have never felt something from the brand Barefoot Dreams, you are in for a treat. And so is the recipient of this soft blanket.

I found some great Golden Goose dupes here, they are so cute! Look at all the different color combos.

I hope this helps if you are panicking to get something for someone on your list and just don't have enough time to shop!

a glamorous Christmas home

This is the second year in a row that I have had the privilege to help decorate this beautiful home for Christmas.

This house is so beautiful, every time I go there I am in awe of it's beauty. All the creamy whites and grey are so pretty, it is just such a serene home.

The families stockings hang in the living room which you see when you walk in the front door.

I can almost hear the Christmas songs coming from that gorgeous piano.

You will not find any red or green in this house, just beautiful neutrals.

I fell in love with this acrylic nutcracker and knew it would be perfect in this home.

Yesterday I showed you how to make this ornament box that sits on the entry table below. I found the urn at HomeGoods, but here is a similar one. 

The formal dining room has a simple runner and we filled it with various glass trees. Some light up which looks so pretty at night. 

I also added simple crystal candle holders to the mix with ivory pine scented tapers.

This sweet little deer family is perfect in the corner.

Ok, I might have lied about the red. I did add a bit of color in here with pomegranates. 
The color is more pink than red and the pop of color along with the fresh cedar branches look great with the crystal decanters.

I found them all on Amazon.

decanter 2

decanter 3

Note that they don't even need liquids in them. They are like an art piece on their own.

In the informal dining area off the kitchen I created a garland by pieces together greenery, faux pinecones, real seeded eucalyptus, and 2 different kinds of ribbon.

Trader Joes has great natural wreaths, so using command hooks I hung four from the doors in the family room.

Again, I used the same ribbon to tie simple bows on each one.

I added this great Icelandic sheepskin throw to cozy up the space.

The "family" tree sits in the corner with all the families favorite keepsake ornaments.

This nativity scene is so sweet.

Above the tv I added wood bead garland and a few large gold and silver ornaments the homeowner had.

A silver bowl filled with clementines is all this little corner needed in the kitchen.

I set up a hot cocoa station in the corner for her 4 adorable kids.

In the hallway upstairs I added a beautiful glass pedestal bowl to the book stack and filled it with  mercury glass ornaments and glass ornaments.

A huge thank you to my friend Kim for opening up her home for all of you to see!

I am sure you find it just as gorgeous as I do!

make an ornament box

Here's a little DIY for you to try! 

I made this custom ornament box for a client this year and it was so easy I thought I'd share it here so you can make your own.

Isn't it cute? 

Perfect for a shelf. It adds just the right amount of Christmas without being over the top.

It can be customized to fit any color scheme you have going on too!.

I think these would be fun hostess gifts, as they are easy to make and inexpensive.

People love thoughtful homemade gifts too!

If you don't have time to make this this year, pin any of these images so you can do it next year!

Here is what you need to make this~

I used larger ornaments in the bottom box and smaller ones in the top. You do not have to fill them full. Add as many as you like, and any color you like. 

Once the ornaments are in the boxes, stack the smaller one on top of the larger one.

Cut the same length of ribbons in each color. Again, you can use any color to match your decor. 

Wrap the two together just like you are wrapping a package.

Tie a bow at the top and let the length of the ribbon drape over the sides.

If you would like to add more color, add a sprig of greenery tucked under the bow. 

You can even add a gift tag if you'd like. These are my favorite this year.

That's it!

You can use this year after year and sit back and admire your handiwork. 

Please let me know if you make one, I'd love to see.
