Homestyle Gathering is your weekly homekeeping destination! A place where you can share inspiration, find inspiration and make new friends.

Hey there! Welcome to Homestyle Gathering! I’m so glad you’re here! 

I hope you’ve had a wonderful week! I’ve been in full Christmas mode while planning for Thanksgiving – ha. I like having the house decorated for Christmas at Thanksgiving. I’ll have all the decor up except for the real tree. We’ll drive out to the Christmas tree farm and cut that one down the day after Thanksgiving.

I know it’s early, but it brings me joy, and our Thanksgiving guests seem to enjoy it. I get a two-for-one deal out of the decorations that way too. But, the best part is – when Thanksgiving is over, I can relax because the decorations are already up.

What about you? Have you started decorating for Christmas around your house yet?

If you missed last week’s party, you can find all the fabulous inspiration that was shared here.

Also, be sure to check out my Homestyle Gathering Link Party board – you’ll find each week’s features pinned to this board.

Let’s get the party rolling!

Here’s what I’ve been up to:
