Decorating for Winter

Embrace the winter season by making your home cozy!  Here are some ideas for Decorating for Winter.

I have always loved decorating the inside of my home for winter, because I love winter…the snow, the cold, cozy nights by the fire, hot chocolate, comforting dinners, not to mention all the skiing, snowshoeing and skating.  And don’t even get me started on winter clothes…I love them.  I’ll take a toque, sweaters and cozy socks any day of the year.

So it just seems like a natural thing for me, to transition my Christmas decor, right into winter decor.  It feels nice to get the tree and decorations down, clean the house, then add some cozy new elements to my space.  Not only does it feel fresh, but it’s nice not to have a complete empty space after a month of Christmas overload.

Last year I decorated for winter in my living room with very neutral colours, and I was just going to pull out all the same things again for this year.  But then, I saw some pillows and blankets at Chapters that were on sale, and I had to have them.  Honestly, these are my most favourite pillows EVERRRRR.  They are everything I love…they’re cozy, I love the colours, and they remind me of a ski chalet.  And they were on sale for $13.65 each!  How could I NOT buy them?  Chapters always has the best sales right after Christmas.

Decorating for Winter

Anyway, come on in and take a little tour of my winter living space…

Decorating for Winter

I kind of went overboard (well, did I really?  I don’t think so), and bought 2 blankets and 6 pillows for my couch.  I’m a firm believer in all the blankets and pillows.  We just shove them aside to make room for ourselves…they’re so cozy you just want to dive into them anyway!

Decorating for Winter

Aren’t they great?  I feel like I’m sitting in a cozy chalet when I’m here.

Decorating for Winter

The pillows have kind of become the focal point in my living room, so I decided that I wanted to keep the rest of the space really neutral.  The only extra colour I added back in were the 2 ice blue glass vases on my mantel.  Other than that, everything is shades of white, brown and cream…all reminiscent of my winters here in Alberta.

Decorating for Winter

My mantel is really simple…I reused a few things from my Christmas home…the candles, the birch sticks and the chunky knit garland.

Decorating for Winter

This chunky knit garland was one of my favourite purchases from the holiday season…I found them at Crate and Barrel back in November.  When I saw them I knew they would be great for my Christmas decorating, but I what I really envisioned was to have them in my space for winter decor after the holidays.  They’re so cozy and pretty.  And because I was missing all my twinkly Christmas lights, I decided to wrap a string of fairy lights around the knitted garland…I love fairy lights because they don’t get hot at all, so I don’t need to worry about them.

Decorating for Winter

I also tied a garland around the birch logs.  In hindsight, I wish I had bought a few more of these.  I guess I’ll have to learn how to do some chunky knitting…it’s been on my to-learn list for years!  Maybe this winter is the time.

Decorating for Winter

I really love this space right now…it feels cozy, comfortable and makes winter time feel great!  My Miss Molly loves it in here too…I had to include a picture of her…she’s my fave 😉  I actually thought she would destroy the pompoms on these pillows because she’s obsessed with pompoms on toques, but she hasn’t touched them!

Decorating for Winter

Thank you for coming on a little tour of my living room all decorated for winter!  Do you decorate for winter?

Happy New Year!

Hello and Happy New Year! I’m sharing some fun and festive ideas for your New Years Eve partaaaaaaay!

Can you believe that another year is being ushered out?!  This past year seemed to fly by.  But I’m excited for 2018…I love the feeling of being able to start afresh.  And what better way than to have a New Years Eve party!  Today I’m sharing some simple and fun ideas for your New Years Eve celebration.

Happy New Year! 2018 New Years Eve Party Ideas

I partnered with Bed Bath & Beyond to bring you this fun and festive New Years Eve party, just in time for the holidays!  I was compensated for my time, but all images, thoughts and opinions are my own as always.  Happy New Year!

I was able to get almost everything I needed for my holiday party at Bed Bath & Beyond!  I love being able to shop at a one stop shop and get what I need. And their online shopping is a great option as well, with loads of more ideas and things to choose from!

Happy New Year! 2018 New Years Eve Party Ideas

This New Years party it’s all about gold and navy!  I love gold for New Years celebrations, so I knew I wanted to have loads of gold.  And I decided I wanted to pair it with navy blue after I found this gorgeous navy blue polka dot table cloth at Bed Bath & Beyond.  My navy and gold party was born!

Happy New Year! 2018 New Years Eve Party Ideas

I layered gold on blue, blue on gold…added some twinkle with lights…tied in blue ribbon…bought candy in matching colours…all festive and easy!

Happy New Year! 2018 New Years Eve Party Ideas

I really tried to keep things simple for this party.  I know we’re all crazy busy, especially with New Years just days after Christmas, so simplicity was my main goal.  And this for me means, easy to find and easy to assemble decorations, simple recipes and a pretty set up that isn’t stressful to create.  One of the ways I did this was to choose a specific section of my home, which for me was in my eating nook, and make that party central.  It’s in this space that I centred my decorations, and set up one table for the punch and dessert, and one separate table will be for the appetizers.

White Cranberry Punch (Non-Alcoholic)

For this party, I made the most simple punch ever.  To my new punch bowl I added 1 – 2 L bottle of Sprite, and 1 – 1.77 L of white cranberry juice.  Then I made some big square ice cubes, some with cranberries, and some without, then added slices of green apple. Easiest punch ever.  And it’s a punch both kids and adults can enjoy!

White Cranberry Punch (Non-Alcoholic)

Festive and delicious!

Coconut Dream Cake

For dessert I decided to make my Coconut Dream Cake.  Pretty and tasty!

I really love how this all came together!  The colours make me happy, the decorations are fun…love it!  Now all we need to add are special friends and family!

Christmas Dinner Menu

All you need to inspire and create your Christmas Dinner Menu!  Covering the main dish, side dishes, desserts and drinks!

Over the years I’ve shared so many recipes over here that are perfect for Christmas dinner.  So I thought it would be a good idea to put all of them into one place for you!  One spot, one easy place to access so that you can create the best Christmas dinner ever.  Everything from 4 different ways to make a turkey, to various easy and delicious side dishes, to delectable desserts, to delicious drinks!  Enjoy!

Christmas Dinner Menu

Turkey Options

Here are 4 delicious ways to prepare the star of your Christmas dinner!

Traditional Roast Turkey with Pan Gravy

This Traditional Roast Turkey with Pan Gravy is the easiest way to make a turkey!  This is a simple and classic roasted turkey, with a delicious pan gravy.  A perfect main dish for your holiday dinner!

Lemon Rosemary Roasted Turkey

This Lemon Rosemary Roasted Turkey is a delicious, tender turkey with fresh lemon and herb flavours!  It’s a nice change from classic roasted turkey.

Bacon Wrapped Turkey

This Bacon Wrapped Turkey is SO easy to make, and is definitely one of our favourite ways to cook a turkey. Believe me when I say that a turkey that has been wrapped in, and roasted in bacon, comes out so moist and delicious. And the gravy is amazing too.

Turkey Brine

Turkey Brine is another way to guarantee a delicious and moist turkey. This method takes a little more effort but the results are so worth it.

Cranberry Glazed Turkey Breast

This Cranberry Glazed Turkey Breast is a simple and easy way to enjoy Christmas dinner without having to roast a whole turkey!  Depending on the size of the turkey breast you buy, you can serve up to 4 to 6 people.

Stuffing Options

I like to bake my stuffing in a separate dish outside of the turkey. I just find it much easier, and there is no worry about proper cooking.  Here are 3 stuffing recipe options to try this year!

Savoury Hazelnut Stuffing

This Savoury Hazelnut Stuffing is a delicious side dish with all the traditional herb flavours of Christmas dinner.  I’ve added hazelnuts, raisins and apples to this recipe for extra crunch and deliciousness.

Traditional Bread Stuffing

I’ve been making this Traditional Bread Stuffing recipe for years now and it’s my go-to recipe.  Classic, traditional and delicious.

Wild Rice Stuffing

Wild Rice Stuffing with raisins and apples is a perfect side dish to holiday turkey.  It has all the traditional flavours of bread stuffing, but instead of bread, this dish is made with wild rice and chick peas.  It’s SO good.

Side Dishes, Gravy & Cranberry Sauce

You can’t have a turkey without delicious side dishes, gravy and cranberry sauce!

Turkey Pan Gravy

This Turkey Pan Gravy is made with all the pan drippings from your turkey.  It’s so easy to make, and is SO delicious!

Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Once you try Homemade Cranberry Sauce, you’ll never reach for canned again.  This recipe makes a delicious, sweet & tart sauce that is perfect served with your turkey!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

This recipe for Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta is mouthwatering delicious!  Roasting the sprouts with pancetta makes them so flavourful.

Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole is a classic holiday dish!  No one can resist that marshmallow topping!

Whipped Mashed Potatoes with Black Truffle Cheese

For an extra special potato dish, make these Whipped Mashed Potatoes with Black Truffle Cheese.  The truffle cheese makes these mashed potatoes so rich and creamy.

Turnip Puff

Turnip Puff is always on our Christmas table!  This dish is creamy, fluffy and so delicious!  Even the non-rutabaga/turnip lovers (my hubby & kids) like this one.

Creamy Gouda Cheese Cauliflower Bake

This Creamy Gouda Cheese Cauliflower Bake is a creamy and delicious side dish that pairs perfectly with roasted turkey.  You can even make this dish a day ahead to save time.

Drinks

Winter Sangria

Winter Sangria is a perfect holiday drink. It is so delicious…red wine with Grand Marnier, brandy, pomegranate juice and fresh fruit all mixed together into one very festive and flavourful drink!  I’ve also shared a non-alcohol version.

Pies, Cakes and Desserts

Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie for Christmas dinner dessert is a favourite.  Every time I make one I’m reminded at how easy they actually are to make.  And they’re always a hit.  Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Chocolate Pecan Tarts

Chocolate Pecan Tarts are a delicious variation on classic pecan pie.  I like making them into tarts because they’re so rich, and one tart per person is definitely enough.

Mincemeat Pie

This Mincemeat Pie is the perfect Christmas dessert!  Serve it up warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream…delicious!

Eggnog Bundt Cake with Eggnog Sugar Glaze

Eggnog Bundt Cake with Eggnog Sugar Glaze is another amazing Christmas dinner dessert idea.  It’s easy to make and looks like you spent hours in the kitchen creating it…but you didn’t.  Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone.

Black Bottom Cupcakes

But these Black Bottom Cupcakes, they’re the best.  It’s not Christmas at our house unless these show up on the table after dinner.  We like them cold right out of the fridge…try it. I’m betting you’ll LOVE them.

Cookies

15+ Christmas Cookie Recipes

And just in case there isn’t enough dessert around, here are 15+ Christmas Cookie Recipes that I’ve shared over here over the years!

I hope you have come away with some delicious food ideas for your own Christmas dinner!  Making this menu has me super excited for Christmas dinner.  And don’t forget your stretchy pants on the big day!  😉 Have a very merry and delicious Christmas!

Classic Christmas Front Porch

Welcome to the holiday season over here at ‘A Pretty Life’!  Today I’ve joined a group of talented bloggers, and we’re sharing our Christmas porches with you to get you inspired for your own decorating! Make sure you check them out at the bottom of this post. A big thank you to Taryn at Taryn Whiteaker Designs for organizing this Christmas porch blog hop!

Come take a tour of my Classic Christmas Porch!

Classic Christmas Front Porch

I really wanted to share my Christmas porch all covered in freshly fallen snow.  But our Calgary weather had other plans.  Right now it’s all wind and warm temperatures as we’ve been under chinook conditions for several days.  The beginning of November was cold and snowy and I loved every minute of it, but chinooks are a fact of life here in my part of the world, and they can melt away winter in 2 seconds flat.  Sounds dreamy, but I don’t love them at all…my daughter and I get headaches with the wind, and everything turns brown and mushy…I’ll take 2 feet of snow and cold temperatures in winter, any day! But when the snow does finally come back, I’ll make sure to pop back in here and post another photo.

Classic Christmas Front Porch

So if you’ve seen my handmade ornaments or Christmas mantel from this year yet, you already know that I have a classic Christmas theme going on.  Red, greens, plaids, fresh greens…I love it all. Over the years I’ve gone from bright colours, right back to classic, traditional Christmas colours. I’ve learned that I really, really love the classics the most.  I think it takes me back to Christmas when I was a kid…my Mom used to decorate in traditional colours too.  Isn’t it funny how we find ourselves doing what our Mom’s did?  I wonder if one day my kids will decorate the same as I do…who knows!

Classic Christmas Front Porch

For my porch this year, I bought a few new things at Michaels that really inspired the theme of my Christmas porch…but it was this Tree Farm sign that really drew me in.  From here my theme was born…I knew I wanted a rustic, yet classic holiday front porch.

Classic Christmas Front Porch

So I gathered quite a few things I had at home, like the benches, the white window, the boxes and lanterns.  Then I shopped my friend Kathy’s place and borrowed the red window, the sled and the joy sign…all perfect elements for my Christmas front porch.

Classic Christmas Front Porch

Then I went in search of some small fresh Christmas trees like the ones I found last year and put in my Christmas bedroom.  I was so happy to find them!  So I scooped up two and placed them on my porch.  I dressed one up with a chunky knit garland and some twinkly lights, and made a little chunky knit tree skirt for the other tree.  So cute. I’m going to leave these up all winter as well…

Classic Christmas Front Porch

Also…peek-a-boo!  Can you see my Molly?  She is always where I am.

Classic Christmas Front Porch

And no porch of mine is complete without a wreath!  I made this wreath to match the theme of my Christmas porch…I’ll share the tutorial with you soon.

Classic Christmas Front Porch

So there you have it, my Classic Christmas Porch.  I love how it all came together…it’s a classic Christmas over here this year.  Now all we need is some snow…any day now Mother Nature, any day.

Classic Christmas Mantel

Today I’ve joined a talented group of bloggers, and we are sharing our Christmas Mantels with you.  We all hope that we can inspire your holiday decorating!  Thank you to Krista of Happy Housie for organizing.  Make sure to take a tour through all the beautiful mantels at the bottom of this post! xo

It’s Christmas over here and we’re so excited for the holiday season!  I love dragging out all the Christmas bins and decking the halls…it’s such a wonderful time of year to decorate.  The cozy pillows, the sparkly lights…it’s magical.

I started my holiday decorating with my mantel.  Because it is the focus of our living area, it kind of sets the theme of our space. That and I actually find it pretty hard to decorate the mantel at Christmas so I try to get it done and out of the way first.  I find it a little challenging to decorate it just enough to match the Christmas tree, but not too much to compete with it.  I think my most favourite mantel of all was the one I made last year at Christmas, but I do like this one too.  There’s really only so much I can do with this space without having to go out and buy a million new things but I don’t want to do that.  As I always say, I try to make do with what I have, because realistically, who can go out every year and buy all new Christmas decor?  It’s just not practical.

Classic Christmas Mantel

For this years mantel I did buy a couple of new things…I couldn’t resist the Reindeer and Santa garland I found at Michaels, and I also bought the flocked garland to match our flocked tree.  And these are things I will be able to use year after year.

Classic Christmas Mantel

I decided not to decorate the flocked garland because I really just love it the way it is…in hindsight though, I probably will add some red ball ornaments for my Christmas home tour that’s coming up…but for now I’ll leave it be. I also made a little tree bark garland with some string and tree bark cutouts that I had from last year but never used.  I think it looks nice strung along with the reindeer garland.

Classic Christmas Mantel

And because I’m all about soft twinkly lights, I wanted to add some candles to my mantel.  I really love the look of candles in front of the fireplace.  When I don’t want to turn on the fireplace, I’ll just light the candles.  So pretty.

Classic Christmas Mantel

I also found these mini fresh trees at our local home store again this year.  I love how cute they are.  I wrapped it up with some pretty chunky knit garland, and wound some small fairly lights in too.  So cute.  You’ll also see a few of these little guys on my Christmas porch!

Classic Christmas Mantel

Overall I kept things pretty simple, and I like how it turned out!  I can’t wait to show you how it looks with my Christmas tree too!

Buffalo Plaid Christmas Ornaments

Get your craft stuff together and let’s make some handmade Buffalo Plaid Christmas Ornaments for your Christmas tree!

Today I’ve joined in with a talented group of bloggers and we’re busting out the Christmas decorations…specifically handmade ornaments!  Thank you to Krista of Happy Housie for organizing!  Make sure to take a tour through all the beautiful ornaments at the bottom of this post.

I’ve been really excited to start welcoming Christmas into our home this year.  It seems like every year, the decorating starts a little earlier.  But it’s hard not to get into the Christmas spirit when it’s winter where you live…we’ve already had winter storm warnings and been shovelling driveways for days.  And I love it. Bring on winter.  And Christmas!

Our tree isn’t up quite yet, but it will be on the weekend.  And this year I’m embracing a full on Canadian Christmas, so brace yourself for everything plaid, buffalo check, and all things that we associate with a Canadian winter.

 

Buffalo Plaid Christmas Ornaments

So in keeping with my Canadian theme, I decided to make some really simple, really Canadian ornaments for our tree.  And I actually made everything with the craft supplies I had already…the only things I bought for these were the gingerbread ribbon and the buffalo plaid ribbon.  I love when that happens…when I don’t have to spend a lot of money for crafting, that’s a win!

Buffalo Plaid Christmas Ornaments

Not only were they inexpensive to create, they were really easy too!  Thanks to the glue gun, these ornaments only took me about 30 minutes to make.

For these ornaments, I used little mini grapevine wreaths I already had, cinnamon stars I made (you can see how to make them here), and leftover bottlebrush trees from last year.  Then to make them match my theme, I tied on some buffalo check ribbon.  It really doesn’t get any easier than that!

 

I also made a spool ornament, a white mini yarn wreath ornament, and a glass filled ornament in the same theme.  I especially love the mini yarn wreath.  (I made a bunch of the mini yarn wreaths a few years ago, and I just love them…you can find the tutorial for them here.)  I also like the look of glass ornaments filled with different holiday decorations…the great thing about them is that you can change them up when you change your decor.  So simple.

Buffalo Plaid Christmas Ornaments

But seriously, how cute is this gingerbread ribbon?  So cute.  I found this roll at Michaels…I couldn’t leave without it!

Buffalo Plaid Christmas Ornaments

And because I’m doing the Canadian Christmas theme, I had to have moose on the tree, right?!  I used the moose from my Canada Day cupcakes for this ornament. I just glued him to a miniature winter tree, and tied a buffalo plaid scarf around his neck.  Because moose wear scarves here up north.  😉

Buffalo Plaid Christmas Ornaments

These were so simple to make, and are just perfect for my tree!  I can’t wait to get them hung.  I hope I inspired you to get out your glue gun and get crafting!
