This holiday season we’ve partnered with some of our favorite bloggers who will be showing you new and inspirational ways to bring the holidays home.
The holidays are all about celebrating family traditions, especially when it comes to the night before Christmas. One of our favorites is making homemade cookies for Santa and setting them by the fireplace with a cold glass of milk. Don’t forget the carrots for the reindeer! We’ve partnered with Sarah Hollingshead, founder of Our Vintage Farmhouse, to see how her family celebrates with a cookie recipe passed down for generations.
Christmas is our favorite time of year, and I mean favorite! Harper and I adore curling up by the fire, decorating the tree and watching Christmas movies.
Another favorite tradition? Baking. We love baking together. My mom always had something delicious baking in the oven when I was growing up, and now I share all of her favorite recipes with Harper. You all, too!
Harper loved helping me make the cookies. We listened to Christmas music and talked all about what Santa is going to bring her this year. She insisted on the spray icing but homemade icing is just as fun to add! She picked out the Christmas sprinkles and went to town decorating.
We also wanted to share some of our favorite ornaments. Harper was so excited to help pick out each one and they look perfect with the rest of our farmhouse Christmas decorations. I love saving a few vintage ornaments and mixing them with new ornaments. Your Christmas tree should really reflect your personal style.
Harper helped hang the ornaments and the stockings. She was so proud! She can’t wait for Santa to get here.
We always leave carrots out for the reindeer and cookies for Santa. I hope Santa loves icing!! We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do! Have fun making all those fabulous Christmas memories!
