I'm dreaming of a white christmas

Christmas is right around the corner and I can't even believe how quickly it's gotten here! There are so many wonderful things to love about this time of year. Here are a few things I'm dreaming of this year:
I love a flocked Christmas tree! While real snow would be ideal, a flocked tree is the next best thing, especially for us southerners who rarely see a true white Christmas. 
This White Christmas Sangria is delicious and makes a festive Christmas cocktail! We had a version of this at thanksgiving and it was a big hit. I can see this becoming a holiday tradition...
Peppermint bark is always a favorite this time of year. This recipe is an easy festive treat to give as gifts or enjoy for yourself!
A touch of retro, like a white or silver tree with colorful ornaments, adds a fun flare to your Christmas décor! A great local resource for these types of vintage treasures is Urban Suburban. Wandering around this place is quickly becoming my guilty pleasure.
One of my mom’s Christmas traditions is planting paperwhite bulbs at the start of the season. They would often bloom right around Christmas and I have always loved the way that they smell and they’re so beautiful and fresh with all of the wintery Christmas decor!

Every year on Christmas Eve my family loads up the car with gifts and food and heads to my aunt's house for a Christmas Eve gift exchange and dinner with the family. There's something so fun about loading the car up with all the beautifully wrapped packages. Now, if only we had the car & snow like this image!
May your Christmas be full of love, joy, and all your favorite things!
