Hello Love!
Welcome to our cozy by candlelight dining room.

My Christmas theme this year is Cozy by Candlelight and I extended it into the dining area this year.

I worked, once more, with my dear friends at Coton Colors to show you some of their fabulous Christmas table ware for this Holiday Season. You may remember that they helped me create this adorable setting last year and when I decided to move those pieces to my china cabinet, they gifted me these beautiful pieces this year.

I stuck with the same buffalo plaid dishes that I had before but decided to accent them with the Christmas Stocking design, as it matched my table runner, chargers and cloth napkins that I’d been using for years. I grabbed some brass candlestick holders and white tapers to bring in the cozy candlelight for our December dinners.

Hello Love!
Last year I got the cutest Christmas Holiday dishes from my dear friends at Coton Colors.

My china cabinet is not something I decorate every season but I knew this Christmas season I wanted to decorate it with these adorable buffalo plaid and Christmas village tableware.

It seriously couldn’t have turned out any more perfect with the addition of the fake snow and mini trees.

Hello Love!

Welcome to my farmhouse living room, decorated for Christmas!

This year, I stuck with the same red and white scheme that I used last year but made a few tweaks to the tree and mantel.

I bought new berries from Hobby Lobby to add to my tree and brought out some old garland with holly and berries to match.

The newest addition to my living room decor is both the basket stockings from Dresden & Company and my basket tree skirt from Longaberger.

Our Fun Valentine’s Day Table Setting Featuring Coton Color Plates

Our Fun Valentine’s Day Table Setting Featuring Coton Color Plates 768 1024 Jenn Pennell
Hello Love!

Who else LOOOOOVES Valentine’s Day?

I absolutely adore the day but it’s not anything that I usually decorate for. Since Coton Colors sent me these gorgeous plaid ruffle plates for Christmas, I thought I’d reuse them and add a few fun Valentine’s Day knick knacks to decorate the table this next week.

I got the new XOXO large attachment for my square Happy Everything plate and found the red heart dishes, wooden LOVE tag  and felt garland at TJMaxx. 
 
It’s sweet and simple for a Valentine’s Day table your kids with love.
 
Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?

How To Make A Fun Christmas Charcuterie Board With Coton Colors

How To Make A Fun Christmas Charcuterie Board With Coton Colors 1536 2048 Jenn Pennell
Hello, Love!
Well, it’s Christmas Eve’s Eve. Can you believe it?!
I can’t.
2020 has been one doozy of a year and even though it seems like this year has been the longest one ever, it still blows my mind that it’s almost over.
Since we had Covid a few weeks ago, the kids have been home for what seems like FOREVER. Even though I’d been sick and had many hours to catch up on, I’ve tried my best to make this week of Christmas as special as possible for them. It’s been so tough on them being in and out of school and missing their friends really badly.
As a special Christmas Eve treat, we’re getting our sugar high and celebrating the night at Santa comes. 😂
The girls and I threw together this sweet charcuterie board full of our favorite treats and snacks, everything from Little Debbie Christmas trees to chocolate-covered pretzels, to fun marshmallow snowmen for hot cocoa.
Now, it’s time to load up our cute mugs with hot cocoa, turn on the fire, find a good Christmas movie, snuggle up, and dig in!
Merry Christmas, y’all!

Christmas Gift Wrapping Station

Christmas Gift Wrapping Station 564 750 Jenn Pennell
Hello, Love!
Are you like me and always wait to wrap everything at the last minute? I don’t know why I do that to myself every year. I always say I’m going to do it early but then every Christmas Eve I have to lock myself up in my closet to get it all done.
WHY do we do this to ourselves?
This year I decided to MAKE myself do it early. I’d always wanted a gift-wrapping station so I cleared off one our our storage cabinets and set everything up! I grabbed a few Longaberger baskets, all my wrapping supplies, and got everything I had bought, up to that point, DONE!
What a relief!
I even had the mail/package carrier presents ready to go! 💪🏻I’m still not 100% done, because I have more shopping to do but I WILL NOT wrap on Christmas Eve!
How about you? You have everything wrapped yet?

Hello Love!
Can you believe how close Christmas is?! I can’t even handle it. Nope. Can’t.
I feel like I’m a little bee busy buzzing around from here and there in the house to get ready for Christmas Day and doing everything that I can get done early, DONE! Most of my presents are wrapped, we’re headed to the grocery store today to get all the food, and all the decor is out and ready to go.
If you follow me on IG, you know that I always have my kitchen table decorated. I adore seeing my dishes set out everyday and even though it can be a burden to move them so frequently, I don’t care. 😂
I’ve never owned a set of Christmas dishes so I was SO HAPPY to team up with Coton Colors this year to get my table nice and fancy for our Christmas guests. CC has been in my life for many years and you may be familiar with their sister brand, Happy Everything.  Their famous Happy Everything plate with changeable attachments to celebrate all the holidays, has been a staple piece in my kitchen for years!

Hello, Love!
Welcome to Christmas in our home. ❤️
After many years of having the same old decor up, we decided it was time for a little upgrade. We kept older trees but bought all new decorations to brighten up this crazy year. 2020 sure has been a doozy, hasn’t it?! We hope you enjoy this little tour of our front porch, living room, kitchen, and master bedroom tree.

Our Halloween And Fall Decor
Hello Love!
Well, Halloween is over and Christmas is quickly approaching. Hard to believe this year is close to being over, isn’t it?
I haven’t felt like decorating the whole house for the season so i just picked a few sections and concentrated on those this year. I go all out for Christmas so fall just gets touches here and there.
First up was the front porch. If you missed that post you can check out how I decorated it HERE and watch all the fun videos of putting it together on my INSTAGRAM.
Our Halloween And Fall Decor
The only other area I worked on was our fun Lonagberger Storage Unit by the front door. I decked it out all spooky for Halloween and then sweet and simple for fall. Since this piece is by the front door it will probably get decorated for every season so stay tuned!

And that’s it! Here’s a few more fun fall photos from this season and soon, we’ll be on to Christmas decor!

Hello Love!
It’s hard to believe that Halloween is already over! We traveled up to Nashville this year to trick-or-treating with our Kenny Girl and we had the best time with her! She told us she wanted to be a dinosaur and that she wanted “Monster” (my son, Brayden) to be a dinosaur too. Unfortunately, she was TERRIFIED of his blow-up dino costume so he only got to spend about 3 minutes in it. Poor little babe,  she was so scared!
Jas and I hadn’t dressed up IN YEARS and we had a hard time finding a good couples costume at the last minute. It came between Frankenstein and his wife or Jack & Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I figured Jas wouldn’t want to wear a plastic face piece all night so Frankie and wife it was! Ang did our makeup and we got a ton of compliments on them.
RJ dressed up as her favorite TV character, Eleven from Stranger Things and Cal was a cute scarecrow.
What did you dress up as for Halloween?
