With the unseasonably warm weather in Omaha, we had no problem getting our Christmas wreaths out this year! I am still waiting on a couple pots to get filled with holiday cheer, but otherwise, we are all set outside.

I picked up a few plants at the grocery store, and although I am not a big fan of poinsettias, they sure are festive. I tried to keep them in the living room only, and used other plants and flowers everywhere else…


My good ole’ kalanchoe plants are still my favorites!

These alstroemeria are leftover from Thanksgiving…

I adore red tulips this time of year!

Love red berries!

And here we go with the poinsettias…

Although I don’t do a ton for decorating, I always bring out the stockings :)

I added the berries to this white poinsettia.. 

My college friend Elizabeth ~ @elizabethbeardesigns ~ has amazed me with her instagram account. She recently passed 10k followers! Anyway, she has posted a few times about her fiddle leaf tree, and I was inspired to try one myself. I love the large leaves. I’m not sure this spot is going to be sunny enough, but at least it will last me through the holidays…

A couple new ornaments awaiting the tree…

Red poinsettias don’t work with my orange painting, so kalanchoes it is!

The brass Christmas angels are out…

The tree will go in the far left corner in front of the window. I’ll move that chair to make room…

We will probably put up the tree this weekend. Remember last year I put up two trees? One in front of each window? Or was that two years ago? (Check it out below!)


Tree pics coming soon… Probably on my instastory! @thefrenchtangerine
