From the time I was little she would deck our home out in beautiful and festive Christmas decor just before Thanksgiving so we could enjoy it all season long.

One of the most distinct memories I have as a child is helping my mom decorate for Christmas. One year in particular that stands out…We were listening to Natalie Cole’s Christmas song, ‘Caroling, Caroling’ and I was helping her pull out ornaments from this black and gold leather chest. I think it’s the smell that burned this moment into my memory forever. The chest and all of the decor inside smelled of a peppermint/pine needle scent and I have never been able to forget it. It’s one of my most favorite memories.

I want Isla Rose and Jackson to have similar memories so I’m carrying on the tradition and decorating my home before Thanksgiving as well! Here is a look at how this years decor turned out! I got my trees and my decorations from Tai Pan Trading and the elves at Gatehouse no. 1 came and styled everything.

    Your Christmas décor is stunning – but when I went to Tai Pan’s website to look for similar trees, none come up when you search, though the post mentions a discount on Christmas trees. Perhaps I’m missing something?!

  20. Jalisa says:

    Your home looks absolutely gorgeous, Rach! I love the wintery all white vibe you went with for the decor and that you went with 3 trees! You did such a magnificent job and omg, Isla is getting so big, especially in that last shot of her holding on to you! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great start to your week!

    Your Christmas decor is always so wonderful! I have a question about the wreaths that you have on the back of your chairs: did you buy them the way they are pictures (eg, with the bow and the snow things on it) or did Gatehouse just buy a plain wreath and then they put the wreaths all together? Thank you!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
