I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas…

Dreaming of a White Christmas with cookies, cakes, drinks, crafts + decor.

Oh what I wouldn’t give for a White Christmas.

I’ve got to know…does it snow for Christmas where you live? Here in Tennessee, it is pretty hit or miss. One year it will be almost 70 degrees and sunny at Christmas, and the next, it might get a little chilly.

This year’s yuletide forecast? 50 degrees and partly cloudy.  ❄ ❅

I can’t remember the last time we had snow on the ground during Christmas. But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about a White Christmas. We have reached out to some of our favorite food and DIY bloggers for their very best White Christmas ideas. Which one is your favorite?

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? I am making mine happen with cakes, cookies, drinks, crafts and decor.
