|The most wonderful time of the year is here, and we just love it so much!This past weekend was one for the books: putting up our tree, cooking together and having friends over all set up the holiday mood for December. You can bet I’m the happiest mama in Montreal right now.After untangling endless Christmas lights and pulling out our Christmas outfits, we were ready to run outside to start setting up everything up. Since we moved to our new house, having an outdoor natural tree is our newest family tradition. We wanted to do something fun for the kids and at the same time optimize some space, because shoebox life you know?My boys fell in love with a beautiful tree they picked together, and honestly, there’s nothing cuter than seeing it covered in snow all winter long. This year, we had a blast partnering with a brand we adore, Canadian Tire. They truly have everything you need for the holiday season, from hosting and entertaining needs,, to this year’s hottest toys, to decor! I have to confess, as soon as I saw the new CANVAS Brights collection this year, I ran to the Canada’s Christmas Store to get some ornaments, they are just TOO stinking cute!|
|What I loved about the Canadian Tire CANVA Christmas collection is that you can decorate based on your favourite color, available in 7 lovely options to play with like, White, Red, Silver, Gold, Blue, Serene Rose, and our personal pick, Brights! All are available both online and in-stores. From adorable cacti, cotton candy, ice cream ornaments, dog balloons, rainbows and any dessert you can imagine, you’ll have plenty of eclectic options this season that will keep happy your little cuties, and grownups too if you go for the Brights collection.Having a house that is less than 1,200 sqft, space optimization is our number one priority. For Christmas, we focused all our decor efforts on walls and windows, I started with a pre a NOMA pre-lit white flocked wreath adding a pop of colour with CANVAS Brights glass bright ball ornaments, a super easy DIY!This tree tradition means so much to me. It’s our first home and the only thing I had in mind while we were decorating with Nico and Oli, was building precious memories together, and maybe someday, they can repeat this sweet story with their kids.|
|My little helper, all happy and excited!We were SO lucky most of the snow was gone last weekend, and we had the best weather to stay outdoors untangling lights, hanging the adorable CANVAS Brights FALALA Christmas Garland and setting everything up with some hot chocolate, fresh homemade cookies and tons of hugs.|
