Today is the first day of December which means it is time to put your seatbelt on and prepare for the holiday madness. Many people struggle with this time of year and dislike the focus on Christmas, but for me it is all about embracing the winter season and bringing the outside in. I’m a big believer that a huge fuss does not need to be made in order to welcome the season and feel a little festive. These efforts could be as simple as hanging some missile toe. Last December I did a step-by-step tutorial for Blooms in Season in how to make a wreath and I swear it is surprisingly easy! Whether you are a scrooge or one of santa’s little helpers, I wish you a happy start to your holiday season.
