Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 44
Hello and happy Saturday!
Cheers to December! It seems as if this month is already slipping away from us. I can’t believe Christmas is closer than ever. Are you ready? I have a few shopping trips to take, and then I’ll be all set for the BIG day! Speaking of the big day… have you put up your tree? Whether you have or haven’t, you’re in the
right place because I am about to WOW you with some Christmas tree inspiration! If you follow me over on Instagram, you must have seen my pink tree.
Yep, it’s pink with lots of vintage ornaments! I also have a red and green front porch along with a blue and green-inspired winter wonderland in my living room.
There has been lots of baking, crafting, creation and last-minute decorating in the Waite house, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. This time of the year is supposed to be busy, so I’m doing one thing right! Alongside trying to finish all of my projects, I am taking in every moment with family, whether it’s watching one of our favorite holiday movies while munching on candy or driving around town looking at Christmas lights.
What fun times do you have with your family during the holidays?
Alright, now that we have caught up, it’s time to take a peek at what you’ve all been waiting for: Christmas tree inspiration for your tree (or trees)!
A Personal Note from Janine
It’s been a bit crazy over.
Not sure where I begin sharing all our adventures.
My daughter and I got most of our holiday decor up before Thanksgiving to blog about our decorations and projects.
I owe it to her for keeping me on task and ticking all the tasks off our long list.
So, with the house decked out in decor, my husband and I decided to switch offices. He now works from home, and the office he worked in was small and stuffy. In addition, he always had to have his door closed due to zoom meetings.
I got busy and boxed up all his belongings, and he did the same of all my craft supplies, and we did the switcharoo over a weekend. So the whole week felt like we were moving!
Our house was a wreck for a couple of days, and it was difficult to muddle through the obstacle course of office furniture.
Then to top it all off, our backyard remodel started the Monday after Thanksgiving!
There has been lots of heavy equipment out in our yard. At one point, the sound got so loud, and my husband quickly inhabited my new office.
Yes, it’s a bit of chaos around the Waite pad! But thank goodness we decorated the house way back in the first half of November!
I hope your home is cozy, quiet, and relaxing!
Have a wonderful weekend!

This Week’s Tip – Christmas Tree Inspiration – Decorating
Decorating One Side of the Tree
Even though I love to decorate my trees, I only decorate one side! Yep, that’s right. Decorating one side of the tree saves me time and energy and besides, during photoshoots, you only see one side so might as well fill it with all your favorite ornaments!
I’ve learned that no one actually looks around the whole tree, especially if it’s placed in the corner. So, this season, to save time, try only decorating one side! It may sound silly but trust me, it looks just as beautiful.
My Latest Obsession – Tabletop Trees
Yes, I love trees—all sorts and sizes. My favorite is a tabletop tree because they are easy to decorate with. They’re adorable and so simple for the holidays!
When I say they’re easy to decorate with, I mean to place them in any corner or shelf with a couple of ornaments hung along with a ribbon and wallah!
I purchase tabletop trees at my local flea market or an antique or thrift shop. I also love vintage pieces, and tabletop trees are very vintage, which creates the perfect look for a simple season.
I’ve linked a seller who has some of the prettiest trees I’ve seen that come in multiple colors and sizes, so you can have a lot of fun when browsing!
Have I convinced you to start decorating for Christmas? I even convinced myself to decorate yet another room or add more decor to my existing winter wonderland scene in my home. I know, I’m a crazy woman. The more, the merrier! Hopefully found some Christmas tree inspiration and happy decorating!
Have a great weekend!
