I wanted to give you a glimpse of Christmas at my house. It’s super simple this year. Our living space is smaller so we opted for a small tree and kept the big tree downstairs in the studio. Last year I got the cutest triangle stockings at The Land Of Nod. The kids love how deep they are….for all of those goodies. I love how they look!

A few years ago I made a batch of white clay ornaments. I found them hidden in a random box and decided to use them on the small tree. I love how modern they are. And the joy banner is from K-mart….almost 10 years ago!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!






This year I will be hosting a small group at our house for Christmas. I love hosting (not necessarily cooking though) and I love using organic elements to create a great tablescape. Last year my good friend Caitlin created this tablescape and I’ve been in love with it ever since! It’s simple yet so so elegant. The colors that she used are neutral yet stunning.

Below is a video that Real Living Magazine and Super A-Mart collaborated on for the holidays. It’s a perfect example that you don’t have to do too much to create the perfect table.

Super A-mart is a place for you to go and seek inspiration for your renovations and home needs. You’ll love it!



It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! My Simply Grove studio in my home (which I will share more pictures later) needed a little Christmas cheer for the holidays, so I collaborated with Martha Stewart Living at The Home Depot and created a fun, stylish, relaxed Christmas corner. Our upstairs living room is a tight space so a bigger 7.5 ft tree made more sense for downstairs. I wanted to create a family friendly tree that was still stylish enough for when clients came over. And with my entire space downstairs being white, I can introduce whatever color I want.

Birds, mini churches and poinsettiasmake for a festive tree. Because all of the Martha Stewart Living ornaments are shatter resistant, I’m not worried about them falling and breaking on the concrete.


These “Pre-Lit 30” Snowy Fir Wreaths look great plugged in or simply hung on the wall.

All of Martha’s ornaments look handmade. The details are unbelievable.

I’m in love with this room now, thanks to Martha.

I posted a picture of my potted Christmas tree on Instagram and got a really great response from people wanting to do the same this Christmas season. The reason we decided to go this route is because we want to re-plant it once Christmas is over. Our good friends have a gorgeous farm in the area and have already reserved a spot for our little tree. If we wanted to chop it down next year and use it for our Christmas tree, we could. But I think we might continue to make this a tradition and continue to find homes for these trees. If we had a big enough piece of property at our home, we would just make a forest of trees!

One piece of advice. Invest in a really good/sturdy pot. Ours got a crack due to the roots and started spraying water the other night. It was AWESOME!
