We decided around sometime in August/September that we really wanted to take the opportunity of having some time off around Christmas (finally) to travel abroad again, but since we weren’t leaving till Christmas Eve I HAD to still decorate! We normally go to the NC Farmer’s Market and purchase a real tree but since we knew we’d be abroad for around 2 weeks we opted to use an old family faux tree. It was the perfect solution for this year but we look forward to a real tree next year!
I always try to bring in some “real” pieces of Christmas through garland and wreaths that I still purchase at the Farmers Market.
Our house is pretty colorful so I’ve been trying to mesh our decorations to be a little more colorful than a traditional red and green scheme. We also unfortunately don’t have a fireplace so the only place we have for our stockings is the staircase, but it works perfectly I think!
I sure hate when we have to take the decorations down, it’s so magical!!
We hope that you love decorating for Christmas as much as we do!! It’s definitely one of the best times of year. The lights, the decorations and memories are so beautiful! And the Christmas cards!! Remember my earlier post about ordering our Christmas cards from Minted? Well, drum roll please….
Merry Christmas Y’all!!
