Without a doubt, Christmas is my favorite holiday! It’s a time filled with love, joy and bonding. Growing up in a large family, I remember our home coming alive for Christmas. There was music, laughter and good conversations — all happening over a feast! Between the family traditions and quality time spent together, I’ve collected so many fond memories that will last a lifetime!
When it comes to home decor, I’m a neutral lover at heart. So naturally, I gravitate more towards neutral Christmas decor as well. This year has been a first for us in many ways. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the first year we didn’t have a family vacation. It’s also the first year we’re decorating our courtyard for the holiday, and including more traditional Christmas colors and decor.
With my girls missing out on so many activities this year, it felt more important to make Christmas extra special and extra festive for them! When The Home Depot invited us to participate in their Holiday Style Challenge, I saw this as an awesome opportunity to have some styling fun with my girls.
Pops Of Color For The Kids
Bright pops of color are my girls’ favorite so I enlisted the help of my 7-year-old daughter to outline what she wanted in our courtyard holiday decor! The Home Depot has everything you need to decorate your home, both indoor and outdoor, for the holidays! We purchased all our holiday goodies online and had them shipped right to our front door. I was able to strike a compromise with my daughter and balance both my love of neutrals and her love of color. We started with this super cute and fun Christmas yard stake to add a pop of color at our front door. It’s the perfect welcoming sign and just the right height to really make my girls feel included in this styling process!
What’s that saying? Go big or go home?! The joy and pure excitement that filled my 7-year-old’s face at the sight of this Santa’s sleigh and reindeer was priceless! The vibrant colors and LED lighting makes this a fun outdoor holiday decor that’s sure to bring cheer to the kids.
