Our next blogger for Balsam Hill’s Tastemakers is Maryann – the driving force behind DIY and lifestyle blog, Domestically Speaking. She started blogging in 2009 and her site has since become a creative outlet for her favorite recipes, holiday decorating tips, and crafting techniques.

Balsam Hill Tastemakers 2016: MaryAnn of Domestically Speaking

Maryann joined the 12 Bloggers of Christmas 2015  and decorated our BH Noble Fir with a Rustic Luxe theme. She gushed about how realistic the tree was and decided to adorn it touches of gold, bronze, and white glass ornaments. To tie the entire look together, she enveloped the tree with a gorgeous gold and brown velvet ribbon.

When asked for an essential holiday decorating tip, Maryann shares, “Don’t forget to enjoy your Christmas decorating!!! In the busyness of the season, it’s easy to just look at decorating as a chore but try to remember what it looks like through a child’s eyes. Turn up the Christmas music, bake some cookies while decorating…remember to make memories and have fun!

Head over to her blog to see how she decorated her tree with the rest of our French Country decorating theme. Drop by again tomorrow to see more from our Tastemakers!
