The Christmas Season seem to get shorter and shorter each year – even though the Stores start displaying Holiday in September – I feel like it whizzes by and I want to soak it all in as long as I can! I added the Sirius XM Holly station ( number 66 I think.) to my set play list in my car and I am singing along to all the carols. So if you see me driving around town – I am not talking to myself.. I am singing to myself! 🙂
I like to start decorating Thanksgiving weekend so that we have a whole month to enjoy our decorations. Having packed up all of our Christmas decorations and sent them to storage, I am going to do Christmas decorating on a budget! Items that will work with what I already have and a simpler version of my normal go all out Holiday style.
This season green and gold are calling my name.. I love all the pre-lit trees (I just ordered this 24″ Blue Spruce) and the simplicity of twinkle lights being the attraction. I am not going to load up on ornaments (I have boxes in storage!) – just a few select colors that will work together and add sparkle. I am getting these white and green pins cones, these gold ornaments, and these multi green ones. I want lots of white lights and a the shimmer of the ornaments. I may add in some ribbon to fill spaces and give dimension.
I would love to get a few of these footed votives to scatter around my table and I am thinking about this table cloth – I love the branches and pine cones. It would work with my Grandmothers green and white china.. and at $30 it is within the Christmas decorating budget! 🙂
Wait to you see all the great things I found below..I am filling up my carts and will share what I get and how I decorate this year.
