Simple Christmas Decor, and a "Parade of Christmas" Link-up!

We're hosting Christmas dinner at our home this year, and I've been thinking about some simple yet beautiful decor ideas, getting inspired to plan and prepare for a meaningful day.

Here are some decor ideas from Country Living that I'm mulling over ~

ribbons on which to hang Christmas cards

daisies and cranberries

natural packaging, accented with cinnamon sticks

pinecones and pomanders - oranges laced with cloves
(wouldn't this be a fun project for the children?)

mini-trees in teacups

greenery and tealights, against golden hues

stockings hung over the piano

What are you planning for Christmas?  How does your family celebrate the birth of Christ?  I'd love to hear all of your ideas, and thought that a Parade of Christmas link-up would be a great way to share.

You are welcome to link to any of your Christmas-themed posts and ideas, from decor, to recipes, to how you encourage a meaningful Christmas.  I can't wait to read about what you are doing (or not doing)!

As a common blog carnival courtesy, please add this sentence to the bottom of your post: "Please join us at Like a Bubbling Brook for a Parade of Christmas!"  Then link back here so others can join in the fun!

  1. Jaime, thank you for hosting this. A Christmas Parade, sound like a lot of fun! I will come at the end of the day to enjoy the "lights"...

    Celebrating His Incarnation,

  2. Jaime, thanks for sharing this. I love sharing ideas and finding new ones with the ladies.

    Again, thanks for the opportunity.

  3. Jamie,
    What a wonderful idea to have this parade! Jasmine shared so I could have the chance to link up.
