We are WAY behind on the wedding blogging but it is Christmas Eve and I wanted to speak to all the newlyweds this year. This is your first Christmas as a married couple and you want it to be perfect and stress free (just like your wedding was if you booked Details by Margaret!) Will you be at home or traveling to visit family? Are you cooking or just enjoying what is made for you? The number one tip I have is to make it your own! Start your own holiday traditions and enjoy being with the one you love.
My husband and I have been married for 4 years and this is the first Christmas since we were newlyweds to be home in Nashville. We put up the tree and decor. Felt a little like Christmas…. Ryan put speakers all over the house and started playing Christmas music. Getting deeper into the Christmas Spirit…. I have been baking and planning my Christmas dinner menu for a week. What is that a warm feeling?!…. We made bags of food, warmth, and toiletries for the homeless. We will pass these bags out later today. Seeing a small on someone else’s face will definitely get me closer to that Christmas feeling!… Tonight we will go to church with my mother. Here we will sing carols and listen to story of Christ’s birth. This is when I will truly feel the Christmas Spirit and be in the mood to celebrate.
What puts you in the mood for Christmas? What are your traditions? Will you start something new now that you are newly married? No matter what makes you feel like Christmas remember why you are celebrating and kiss the one you love.
Here are some pics from my Christmas tablescape. We don’t have a formal dining room but I still found a need for our fine china.
Merry Christmas from Detail by Margaret!
