It’s never officially Christmas season at our house until the the new chalkboard art is up in the kitchen. And since that’s done, let the yuletide fun begin.

“Jolly” is the key word here, with a glitter dot garland made with gold glitter paper I punched out, strung on a line with some red striped stars. And then, for a little moresparkle,I hung a few more dots with fishing line up over the top of the chalkboard.

A jar of gingerbread and awreath with mistletoe behind the range willdefinitely contribute to the jolly as well.{Chevron urn from Target, gold tray from Ross, and the striped pitcher from here.}

Nothing toocomplicated here.

And as you rush from one holiday event to the other, frantically searching for those perfect gifts and baking those yummy treats, don’t forget to take a deep breath now and then, remember Christ is what it’s all about, and decide to be jolly.
