MHCT&M: New Year's Eve Countdown Ideas

Hello there friends!

 Are you all set for Christmas or still bustling around like myself? 
We are down to just over a week before Christmas and then before you know it we are flying into a new year! Is it really only a few weeks away?

 As 2018 quickly approaches, I gathered up some fun New Year's Eve Countdown Ideas that you can pin or bookmark for right after Christmas. 


Most of these ideas are already, or can be adapted to be, kid-friendly. 
So if you are like me and will have the kids around, these ideas are great and most can be put together pretty quickly and simply.













Creative ideas, right? 
Do you celebrate New Year's Eve or the New Year in a special way? 
I'd love for you to share it with us!


We hope you have a blessed holiday season with your family and friends! 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Vintage Truck Sign Christmas Wreath and our White Retro Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas everybody!  This is Donna from Modern on Monticello blog again and I'm so happy to contribute to A Glimpse Inside Blog this month and to get a chance to wish everyone a happy holiday.   I have so enjoyed contributing to A Glimpse Inside Blog this past year and wish Allison, Jamie, and Rachel the best in 2018!

For my last post I am sharing with you, I wanted to show you my Vintage Truck Christmas Wreath and a few photos of our Retro Inspired White Christmas tree.

I saw where Allison shared a Vintage Truck sign a few weeks ago and I always knew we shared the same taste and design vibes.  I hope you were able to read her post but if not check it out here

So, in the same spirit of loving all things with vintage trucks, I am sharing my recent project featuring a vintage truck sign.

I found this vintage truck sign on Amazon a few weeks ago while looking for retro themed Christmas ornaments for my white Christmas tree.  I was participating in a Christmas Tree blog hop and wanted to add more ornaments to the tree.  I have seen a green truck version of this sign but really wanted it in the red truck version.

Just so you know, my husband and son are working on a 1960 F100 Ford Truck which just so happens to be red - underneath all the rust - so vintage trucks have been a favorite around our house since before Retro and Vintage were the "in" thing.   The vintage truck sign for our house had to be red.

I wanted to keep the wreath pretty simple other than the vintage truck sign so I only added a string of LED battery operated lights and a bow.

I was going to originally hang this wreath outside my own back entrance door - which you see in these pictures - but my son and daughter in law are moving in to our rental house this upcoming weekend.  Yes, they are going to be our first renters while my son is away in seminary school next year - and since they are moving a week before Christmas they really won't have much chance to decorate their new home.  I have decided to hang this wreath on their front door as a surprise and a housewarming gift.

I am also excited to share with you some pictures of my family's white retro themed Christmas tree.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and that 2018 is everything you want it to be.
