If you’re anything like me, decorating for the holidays can cause some
minor stress. Decorating comes as naturally to me as breathing under water, and as easy as Pintrest makes it all look, I just fail miserably every time.
My mom says I can blame her, so I will. Thanks a lot, Mom.
I just imagine that people with nicely decorated homes were born with an innate talent and a great deal of patience.
Not so, my friends. Not so.
Last weekend, my mother-in-law, Joni, invited me to a pretty neat class at Pottery Barn – How to Decorate for the Holidays. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! They have CLASSES for this shit?!
I was elated.
The class was packed, folks. This made me feel awesome. I’m not the only woman on this planet who cannot creatively decorate my mantel space!
You know how I know that? Because it was one of their lessons.
After the class, Joni and I went to inspect the mantel example. While lovely, the entire set up would have cost us a steep $400.
Thank God for Target and HomeGoods!
All kidding aside, I thought this was a pretty neat concept. Next weekend, they’re hosting How to Host the Perfect Holiday Party.
You better believe I’ll be there.
Let’s chat – Are you gifted with a decorating gene, or are you kinda sorta exactly like me (aka: the Major of Struggle City)? If you do struggle with decorating, you should check out the class listings at your local Pottery Barn. I think they hold these classes everywhere!
