You guy know I love nothing more than decorating my home, so as you can imagine, when it comes to the holidays, I'm all over it. I usually decorate the day after Thanksgiving, since it's a family tradition and just feels right giving each holiday it's own time. BUT, this year I just couldn't wait. It's been a hard 2016. From what I hear, the sentiment is shared with a lot of you. So, when I got the urge to put the tree up early this year, I did it. YOLO

The tree is my favorite part, but rounding up in second place is my mantle. Our mantle has a rustic feel with a shiplap back. It's easily the best to decorate since it's such a focal point in our family room. I love seeing how others decorate theirs for the holidays on Pinterest. I always end up seeing something placed a certain way, or used in an unexpected way, that gets me so excited to try something new every year. I'll be sharing a holiday house tour next week, but to hold you over until then, I've rounded up the best 20 gorgeous holiday ideas that I've come across this season. How do you choose to decorate for the holidays? Do you get carried away like me or are you more of a simple chick? I'd love to know in the comments below!
