Let’s be honest, January can be a bit of a let down after the beauty and busyness of December. But the New Year can be a productive time to accomplish a few projects for the home that will give us a boost and make our homes looks amazing. January is a great month to organize, decorate, cook, enjoy the beauty of the season, play in the snow (if you live in an area that gets the fluffy white stuff) and dream of spring! Today’s edition of PRACTICALLY SPEAKINGS is about 10 great things to do in January for your home!
It’s hard to beat the beauty of a big Christmas wreath on your front door. But don’t let your front door go bare until spring! Make a pretty and serene winter wreath! I’m loving big fluffy wooly wreaths to give my guest a warm welcome when the step on to my front porch! Choose one of these fun wreaths for your front door this winter!
Winter is a great time to cook scrumptious, warm-your-tummy dishes! Here are 5 of my very favorite. A must try is my Nani’s Chicken Noodle Soup!
This is one of my most pinned posts on Pinterest. January is a great month to rehang all your plates and other things that have wires. Go wireless! It’s so so easy and so much more attractive!
YUM! I make this pot roast all year, but I think it is especially perfect in the winter. This scrumptious comfort food is a great meal to serve to company as well as family. So so easy! Serve it in a large shallow bowl with crusty bread to sop up the amazing juices!
I think winter is a time when we can decorate more simply and create cleaner less complicated looks. Create a mantel that will work until spring!
Bars and bar carts are so on trend right now. Set up a chic bar cart filled with great, fun bar essentials. It can be alcoholic or non. Have all you need to serve luscious libations!
I think the best way to enjoy friends in the winter is to have an easy to prepare soup buffet and play games. Get out the dominoes (my fav’s) board games and other fun party games! Serve a hearty soup like ham and bean and make it EASY!!!
Isn’t this pillow so so pretty? I made it using a plain pillow cover I had in my stash and a bunch of vintage white buttons, many that were probably cut off my Nani’s dresses and uncles shirts! If you have a couple hours one afternoon you can make this no sew snowflake button pillow.
Yes, January is a fabulous month to organize. Most of us have an itch to get everything in place after Christmas and the cooler days keep most of us indoors more. Here’s a smart way to organize all those books and magazines we so often collect!
It’s never too early to dream and plan for spring!!! I happen to be one of those rare souls who love winter, but I always have my eye on the next season because it come up fast! Here are 5 THINGS TO DO NOW FOR SPRING… or at least pin to think about in a month or so!
I hope this post has given you a few ideas to create, cook and be inspired! Let’s make January the beginning of the year we LOVE OUR HOMES!
