That’s right, folks. I know it’s not December yet, but Christmas is right around the corner. Have you started decorating? I think most people decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving, and usually I do, too. But, this year, we’re running around like crazy people the week before, so I decided to decorate a few weeks ago. Yep, you read that right, weeks. What was the first Christmas thing to go up? The tree, of course!
This year’s color palette is silver, white, blue and green. Not very original, I know, but I bought ornaments at Target (love Target!) the day after Christmas last year. So, I’m working with what I’ve got. Every year, it’s Ben’s task to add the lights to the tree. We both prefer the plain white strands for a classic look. So, he lights the tree and I add the ornaments. This year, I had a little help from Vincent. Of course, most decorations are at the bottom two feet, but hey, it’s free help.
A white dove is perched atop our tree this year.
I have my eye on a beautiful Capiz star topper from, where else, Target. It’s currently priced at $20. Not bad, but it will be much better when it’s 50% off, dontcha think? Yeah, me too. What else is on my Christmas tree wish list? A cute tree skirt of some sort.
You see, we don’t have anything covering that ugly tree stand right now. I want something white or silver, but I haven’t seen anything I really like yet. I think I’ll buy some fabric and make a tree skirt at some point.
So, that’s what our Christmas tree looks like this year. What about your tree? Have you set it up yet? Do you have a color scheme or theme you’re sticking to or do you prefer to decorate with all of those mismatched, collected-over-time ornaments?
