Step 1 Christmas decorating

*Update- I have Christmas stuff out because Ashlyn will be here on the 24th and it is a tradition of ours to decorate the tree together. My mom will be here too. Normally, I would not even touch the Christmas boxes until Thanksgiving Day. You people must think I am crazy with 42 days left until Christmas. Just doing it for my sweetie "little A".

*Update #2-The stockings are Ballard Designs, and right now you can get free shipping until Nov 19th. Happy Shopping!
Unpack stockings,stuff with tissue paper,fluff toppers and order a stocking for Allie Grace! Now I need to find a place to hang them. No fireplace here in Florida! Maybe I will hang them along the banister going up the staircase! I will let you know! Have a great Wednesday!

LOVE the stockings, beautiful...are they from Ballard's? Yes, do the banister, that would be great, easy for santa to find!

Great stockings! I've been looking around for new ones for our family. I just can't decide on the colors I want.

I love the stockings! Are those Ballard? I drool over them every year :)

My mom doesn't have a mantle in her house either and she hangs them from the bannister...I think it looks neat.

Hope you're having a great day!

Oh my! Love your stockings and your little trees! I love the idea of the fake snow in Florida...I wish our snow was fake and the temperatures were in the 80's:) Celebration sounds like a dream come true! Thanks for stopping by my blog:) Happy decorating!

Finally a pay off for the heat. Magical fake snow makes me smile...plus no mess to scrape off the steps!

Yeah, Allie Grace! A new crawler is so sweet.Hopefully, she will be nice to the christmas decorations.

Stop decorating and start packing for SC!!!!

How fun! Cute stockings...........I've been searching for some new and cute one's. Where are these from? I saw some like them in the Ballard's catalog. :)

Yeah, I have already started decorating for Christmas - I am having 15 adults and children at my house for Thanksgiving, then the Alabama/Auburn game is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which we will be at, and then I go back to work on Monday and have stuff every weekend thereafter, so it's either now or never.... plus I get to enjoy it more. We have 2 fireplaces, but no mantles, so we hang our stockings on our banister going up the stairs - it's beautiful!

Love the stockings! My kids keep asking when we're putting up our xmas stuff...I'm always ready early, too!

Jenny said...

Those stockings are too cute! I need to get two more stockings for our newest and soon to be newest addition to our family. I'm thinking that I may just order us all new ones so they match! I'll check out Ballard Design!!!

Love your stockings and holders! We have the polka dot ones and love them! I want to add the "scolly" ones too. Cute!

Montee said...

Great stockings! I have a fireplace, but no mantel. I usually just hang the stockings from my fireplace screen. I think yours would look great down the banister.
