A Colorful Christmas with the Land of Nod – Plus a giveaway!


Merry & Bright: A Colorful Christmas with Pencil Shavings Studio & The Land of Nod www.pencilshavingsstudio.com

Are you ready for some seriously colorful Christmas decor? I partnered with my favorite kid-friendly and style-conscious retailer Land of Nod to create our holiday decor this year. And I can’t tell you how much cheer it has brought to our whole family! Back when we had our living room painted, I kept thinking, “Oh man, a white Christmas tree with colorful ornaments is going to look amazing in here at Christmas!” Originally inspired by this colorblocked Christmas tree,  my Holiday Pop-Up shop decor ( those honeycomb lanterns!) was kind of the clincher for the whole look. Aren’t those honeycomb balls absolutely amazing?  I had this vision to create an all white Winter Wonderland with the most stunning display of color ever.

Never before in my life have I ever had a tree skirt, and I am absolutely in love with the way this confetti tree skirt looks in the room. I cannot wait to pull this thing out year after year. I  might even wear it –  it’s that cute. And it’s super fun with the matching stockings. Jude comes in every morning to see if the stockings are filled yet (let’s not jump ahead of ourselves, kid!).  I was also pleasantly surprised when I unpackaged the ornaments. Those lovely All the Colors of the Rainbow ornaments are actually paper mache. They’re so glossy and lovely that they look just like glass. But I don’t have to worry about Jude (or, erm, me) breaking them. Win-win.

I’m absolutely madly in love with the white trees. I put both the big one and the little one into the family room this year since we’ve got the formal living room cordoned off (read: due to puppy potty training, we don’t even go in the carpeted rooms!). So I let Jude decorate the little one with all his favorite strands of beads, unbreakable ornaments, and every single photo of him and Santa through the years.
