The Day Shift x Lowe's: Decorating for the Holidays
This post was sponsored by Lowe’s. Thank you for allowing us to share about the brands we use and love during our home renovation process.
Last year at this time, we put an offer in on our house. We received a closing date of December 6th and got to work packing. We thought we would be in our house before Christmas. Instead, Christmas decorations looked like stacks of moving boxes separated from the boxes of family gifts I needed to wrap. We ended up moving at the end of January. It all worked out for the best but I did miss decorating for Christmas.
With our little girl due the day before Thanksgiving, we’ve been given a lot of advice to get the holiday decorations up before she arrives, otherwise, it probably won’t happen. It’s one of the most common things people say when they ask our due date. With all the work on the house and freelance work to finish up before mid-November, even getting things decorated beforehand seemed impossible. So when Lowe’s Home Improvement invited us to create a holiday decorating story in our house using their decor, it was a perfect final nudge to get us going.
On Saturday, Austin and I drove out to Lowe’s and picked up the decor we needed to turn on our home’s holiday-mode. I wanted to keep the color palette similar to what we already had in our house so we could incorporate winter decor without having to move too much out of the space. We wanted to play up the cedar green chairs, the light blue rug, the mix of metallics and blush accents. We found a great selection of things and over the weekend, I got to work setting it all up.
It feels kind of surreal that our house is decorated for the holidays. They seem so far away but I know they will be upon us so soon. Time is moving quickly and I love being in the Christmas spirit.
