Christmas Through the Years | How to have the best Christmas ever! Decor, crafts, recipes, gift giving, wreaths and more.
OK…I may be kidding just a bit about the “best Christmas ever” part, but I’m not kidding about the amount of inspiration included in this post. I’ve called this Christmas Through The Years because I’ve got five years worth of holiday decor, crafts, recipes & printables. It’s all organized into categories with easy links to each project.
If you are new here, I hope this makes it easier to find what you need. If you are a regular, you just may find something you forgot about. Either way, let’s take a look.
Whenever I write posts like this, I feel very blessed that your support and friendship has helped me grow this blog to where it is today. It’s certainly not the biggest or most popular, but this little corner of Blogland has allowed me to make a decent living while working from home. It never fails, that when I’m feeling discouraged or alone, one of you writes a comment that totally and completely makes my day. When I say I could not do this without you, I mean it with my whole heart.
Here are easy links to the Christmas posts from the last five years. Just click the images!
No time is it more fun to plan a crafting session than at Christmas. All of the posts in this section are easy and can be done quickly. This category is near and dear to my heart. Back in November of 2012, one afternoon on a whim, I wrote a post with directions on how to make a perfect bow. No planning and photos that are not so great! That little craft post has been the biggest blessing of my career as a blogger. It always, without fail, is in my top three most-visited posts…and usually is in the top slot. I have updated the pinnable images, but not the images in the tutorial. It’s given me so much that I can’t bring myself to change it. So if you take a look, you are seeing the real deal.

We all have our own gift-giving style…but no matter what that style is, giving a handmade or homemade gift is always a good choice. I usually give gifts from my kitchen, but in this category I’ve included handmade gifts as well. Along with all of that, I’ve thrown in some gift-wrapping inspiration.
Seems like any holiday celebration is centered around food and at Christmas, that’s doubly true. Family traditions and favorite dishes play a huge role. I know my family wants the same thing every year…and truth be told, I do too. Sometimes I try to switch things up a little and find something new. Use this category of Christmas recipes to see if you can find something to add to your family’s regular line-up…or maybe something that will make the whole job easier. At Christmas, easy is always a good thing.
It’s no secret that I love making printables and actually use them in my decor. It’s an easy and budget-friendly way to freshen your space with the arrival of each new season. There are quite a few Christmas printables to choose from, along with Hanukkah and Chanukah.
If you’ve followed On Sutton Place for even a little while, you know I am obsessed with wreaths. I always try to come up with something new each year…and some years it turns out better than others! Here are all the Christmas wreaths I’ve shared so far. I have a plan for this year but have not actually tried it yet. You will be the first to know how it works out. My all-time favorite Christmas wreath was the evergreen snowman I made for my daughter. Get the complete tutorial HERE.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this walk down memory lane and Christmas through the years. Thanks for stopping by…only six more Sundays left before Christmas!
