Holiday Tips – Best of the Weekend 12-6-19

Well, the first week of December has blown by!  Hopefully, you are keeping up with all the holiday craziness.  If you are looking for some helpful holiday tips, we have plenty here:

Welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  We are so happy you could join us!  As always, we invite you to link up your creative posts which may include home decor, DIY, crafts, recipes, tips and more!

**Link Party Update:  Before we get started, I just wanted to remind you that Liberty and I decided to change the link party for 2020.  Instead of having a weekly Best of the Weekend, will change to a monthly, “Best of the Month” party.  Starting in January, the party will begin on the first Friday of the month – January 4th and be open for the entire month.  Hopefully, the change will not inconvenience anyone.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

For now, let’s get started with this week’s party…

Each week, when you link up to Best of the Weekend, your link will appear on both our blogs.  Let’s meet your hosts…

Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!

TO GET US STARTED, THIS IS WHAT I SHARED ON MY BLOG THIS WEEK:

As soon as Thanksgiving was over, I started my decorating.  This week was busy for me on the blog as I joined in two holiday blog hops…

    Shelley, it’s been an incredibly inspiring week of Christmas inspiration. I love these features. I collect crocheted potholders, and always pull the red & white ones to the top in a bowl at Christmastime, so I find those crocheted ornaments adorable (and they don’t break!). It was a great week of table inspiration too. Have a great weekend!

    Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 11-25 to 11-29 on my blog. On Tuesday morning were Christmas Almond Balls. Wednesday was a Red Velvet Oreo Trifle. And wrapping up the first week of Christmas baking is a Marilyns Treats original. My Death by Peanut Butter and Chocolate Trifle. Enjoy!
