Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

I am getting ready for our big party tonight. It has been a crazy week but all seems to come together. 
This is our Christmas kickoff and I love having everyone here that I don't get to see often. Get time catching up and enjoying the season. Hope your holiday season is off to a great start. 


Now a few words from this months hosstess:
Hello and welcome to our Holiday Happiness is Homemade Link Party 250. We finally finished decorating our house for Christmas ~ which takes about a week. Now we can really enjoy the pretty and festive decorations. Are you done decorating? Hope so; now you can take a little time to share your awesome holiday posts with us here.
With 4 Christmas trees, 10 holiday vignettes, 1 creche, 1 Dickens Village and assorted Christmas decor, our house really shines during the holidays. On Friday night, we had a few couples over for cocktails before going out to share a holiday dinner. Sweet Shark and I love sharing our home with friends during the holidays and this is an easy way to entertain. It's part of our way of sharing the Christmas spirit.
I love being hostess is December. In the second week of December, I have chosen 4 awesome holiday decorations and one yummy sounding beverage for this week's Happiness is Homemade Link Party 250 Holiday Edition ~ all chosen to enhance your seasonal enjoyment.
Have a wonderful week of holiday enjoyment.

Happiness is Homemade Link Party 250 Holiday Features


I love home decor. Having a pretty and welcoming entry anytime is a wonderful way to greet guests, especial during the holidays. Jenn at Clean and Scentsible created a warm and whimsical entry by combining different seasonal elements. She shares great tips on how to style a holiday entry.

Speaking of decorating packages, I think personalized gift wrapping is not just cute, but it adds an extras dose of hugs and kisses to any package. Michelle at The Craft Shoppe shared the most adorable collection of gift wrapping ideas. I know the presents under her tree will be especially appreciated.

You know I love DIY projects and this darling sled from Tiffany at TeeDiddlyDee would add great whimsy to any Christmas decor. She has a great video and directions so anyone could make this project.

 Who doesn't love the dollar section at Target? It's always my first (and sometimes last stop) when I shop there. Stephanie at Abbots at Home made a darling DIY centerpiece from Target dollar section ingredients. It's magical and whimsical and so easy.

   I love hot chocolate by the fireplace so I couldn't' resist this Frozen Hot Cocoa drink from Brandy at Gluesticks. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but it looks and sounds delicious.
