I think I have gotten the majority of my holiday decorating done (with the exception of my real tree – it’s too early for that), so I thought I’d share a few pictures. As you can see, I went with a colorful theme all over the house. I have silver and red in our guest bathroom and will do whatever L wants in his bedroom and bathroom, but all the open spaces and our room are colorful.
Instead of buying lots of knick-knacky stuff, I have been doing most of my decorating with plain old ornaments. I put them in whatever containers I already have out and that’s it! I have a cask stand filled with ornaments on my kitchen table, a bowl of ornaments on my counter, etc. Since they are so brightly colored, I feel like it’s enough you know?
I gotta say, after making an ornament wreath myself, I am not overly fond of store bought ornament wreaths. They are just too perfect. If I had more time and all the supplies just sitting on my basement or something, I’d make another one and return the one that’s on my front door!
And up until a few years ago, I’d never done a theme tree before. I have a white one and this skinny one and now I’ll use one of the two and fancy it up. To the best of my ability anyways. It’s fun (to look at not to decorate) and we still get to have our real tree that has a mish-mash of ornaments collected through the years.
How is your decorating coming along? Are you already finished or have you not even started? And do you do a “theme” in your house or do you use your favorite pieces and say screw the theme?
