5 Ways To Get Festive For The Holidays


I just can't get my head around the fact next week, the month-long Holiday adventure of December kicks off!
HOW?
Wasn't it just, August?
I am so not ready!
If, like me, you are freaking out and need to get your festive-on and fast, below are a few fun ways to get festive for the holidays!
1. Be Unconventional
Think: The hottest Christmas trend of 2017, the pineapple Christmas tree! (I swear I'm not kidding!) Head over to Pinterest on your lunch break (Or bored and want to look busy) and look for inspiration. Make the theme all your own! Screw the stockings and garland, go for Pineapples and sunnies!


2. Buy out the dollar store
Decking the Halls doesn't have to break the bank. Stop at the Dollar Tree after work and go wild on ten bucks.



First Time Dad Tip: When you get home, coat the walls with adhesive spray, throw the decorations in the middle of the floor and fire up the leaf blower. #GoodTimes

First Time Mom Disclaimer: We cannot and will not be held accountable if your dumb enough to try it. #Dumbassery

3. Don't feel like going through the work hanging lights? In less than thirty seconds you can light your house up like Clark Griswald with a Christmas Light Projector
Remember when we were kids and most decorations were made of foil or we had to string a thousand peices of popcorn to make our own garland? Not. Any. More. Shove this sucker in your yard, plug it in and done!







4. Test out new recipes for holiday treats.

Kick the cookies up a notch. Raise the bar on brownies. Plan now so you blow everyone away at the holiday party or cookie exchange.
This year I'm trying these Christmas Tree Brownies


5. Craft something with the Kiddos!

Spend the frigid weekend inside making a winter wonderland!
