The Fun In Functional! {Link Party #75}

Welcome to The Fun In Functional, the weekly link party hosted on Practically Functional!

Well I’ve started decorating for Christmas already, but we don’t have our tree yet! When do you get your Christmas tree each year? Growing up we always had to wait until after my mom’s birthday (Dec. 16), and we always tried to have the decorations down before my birthday (Jan. 3), so we only had about three weeks of Christmas each year. But I love Christmas, and if it were up to me I’d leave the decorations up all year!!!

If you’re new here, I throw this party once a week on Fridays and it runs through the weekend. It’s a place for you find some inspiration and show off your own creativity. At the bottom of this post you’ll find links to a bunch of awesome projects, recipes, crafts, tutorials, and more; feel free to browse around and visit any of the links that interest you! And if you have something of your own that you want to share, just link it up below!


Last week’s party was a huge success, and a ton of great ideas were linked up! Did you see the 15 festive holiday desserts I featured? Now that it’s December it’s the perfect time for peppermint and chocolate, so go check them out!
