  3. Kate, these are fantastic ideas for Christmas decorating. I love your suggestions for making beautiful Christmas decorating without going crazy. Greenery is always beautiful.

    1. Thank you Carol! Thank you so much for inviting me to be on your holiday hop – so many great ideas have me inspired to start decorating today!! 🎄🎅

  4. Love these ideas! You are right about the Christmas photos, so fun to look back on! I have also saved Christmas cards that were especially lovely to me and framed them, as they are usually close to 4×6 or 5×7.. There are years I feel like going all out, and some when I have wanted to keep it simple. Nice to have options, and certainly no need to buy all new every year. The older I get, the more simple sounds nice!

    1. I think the older we get, we all appreciate things a little easier and simpler. If it wasn’t for decorating trees and garlands, my holiday decor would be A LOT easier!!

  5. You have the best no hassle decorating ideas Kate! There are so many simple ways to decorate with I have, especially if I forage for those pine clippings that you mentioned! 😉 Pinned!

  6. Kate, you have so many wonderful suggestions and beautiful ideas in this post! So many helpful ways to add simple, but beautiful touches of Christmas around your home!

  7. Kate, this was a fabulous post! It was packed with great tips. Not everyone wants to go all out decorating. For some right now, budgets are tight. Sprinkle it in here and there! Love all of your suggestions.

  8. I always enjoy a simple Christmas and your ideas are just fabulous, loved them❤️❤️

  9. Oh, Kate! I am so in love with so many of your decorating ideas! I am a ribbon and greenery lover and each and every photo shared captured my heart. Who knew you could wrap plates with ribbon? That’s getting added to my decorating! Loved hopping with you today!

    1. Thanks Leslie! I sometimes have to stop myself from not tying a ribbon onto anything not moving when I’m decorating for Christmas.😂

  10. Kate – I just love your simple holiday ideas. I actually think less is more sometimes! Framing the holiday pictures is genius!
