Our Town & Country Holiday Theme Song
To close this post and open up your season of joy, here’s a little ode to our foolproof ways of creating holiday magic at home (and a-one and a-two!)
Holiday candles that light up our places,
Bright-colored candies bring smiles to kids’ faces,
Diffuser oils and the scents that they bring
These are a few of our favorite things…
Cinnamon Orange Tea in our teapot,
Wreaths and bouquets and garlands and whatnot
Wicker gift baskets to hold everything,
These little joys are what holidays bring…
Pre-made sides to share…
I just look around me and all I can see
are little joys everywhere!
