A California Christmas

It's that time of year to get your sweaters out and deck the halls for Christmas! I think it is by far most peoples' favorite holiday because of the happy memories they bring to our subconscious and new happy memories are made. My favorite memories are rainy days with hot coco, real logs burning on the fire, decorating the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, and the traditional Christmas Eve pajamas we opened every year. What are your favorite memories? 

As a born and raised Southern California girl my sweater weather and rainy days are relative to others who grew up with white Christmas and rain every day. However, as spoiled as I am with the beautiful mild weather, I do feel the temperature change and still feel the change of season in my bones and it brings joy to my heart. 

Decorating for Christmas is always fun, but if you are struggling with what to do this year or want some new ideas, I've included some home decor ideas for a California inspired Christmas. 

 

Succulent Wreath

The California favorite is a beautiful and elegant way to decorate with an unconventional Christmas wreath.

This wreath pictured is made by my good friends at Redeeming Eden.

You can even add some red berries to it to give it some more Christmas spirit.

If you have a large round dining table or large coffee table, the wreath would be a great addition with a candle or hurricane with a candle in the middle.
