I know Thanksgiving isn’t even quite here yet, but truth is the Loft is already decked out for Christmas and we just can’t help but give you a peek! Before I left for Australia Martha Stewart Living hired me to style a holiday set up with the Martha Stewart for The Home Depot Metallics Collection and we had such a ball dreaming up our perfect Christmas {on Halloween, no less!}. Here’s a little teaser and more on what you’ll be seeing next week {cuz really, I don’t condone thinking about Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving!}:

– A fresh way to decorate your tree, complete with bunches of real flowers and live succulents!
– A look at a bold go big or go home idea using a beautifully draped fresh garland.
– An ombre and washi tape candle DIY that you can do in less than ten minutes!
– A modern and unique way to wrap your gifts this year.
– A simple indoor holiday picnic set up, complete with cocktail recipe, sure to make any Christmas Eve special {after the kids go to bed}!


We hope you’ll be back next week to see all of the details up close, but if the suspense is killing you, you can learn a little more about how to achieve the look on Martha Stewart Living right here!

All of the product featured in this post was provided by the Martha Stewart Living team to celebrate the ‘Tis the Season of Doing holiday campaign going on now at The Home Depot.
