I know what you are thinking... Who doesn't?? But I would really like to leave my tree up all year. Although, I would be afraid people might confuse me with a hoarder (seriously, these people never take their trees down... and what's with all of the cats??).
I will admit, I did the ultimate no-no and put it up a few days before Thanksgiving. I couldn't help it. It was calling my name from the garage - and I had a few days off of work. I knew I could knock the majority of decorating out while Hubs was still working.
We are really lucky, The In-Laws gave us a 9ft Pre-Lit tree last year. I am so grateful - I HATE PUTTING LIGHTS ON A TREE. Even still, this year I could only get half of the tree lit. Hubs luckily was able to fix it once he got home... Thanks, Hubs!
I tried to get some pics of the tree, but encountered some problems. 1. I couldn't get the entire thing in one shot. 2. I can't get the colors right. HOW DO YOU GUYS TAKE SUCH BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS OF YOUR TREES?
Anyways, here she is!
It's done in primarily gold and green, with a little bit of red. It's pretty traditional. There are probably over 200 ornaments on it. But these are my favorites:
I love these green disco balls! We have them in two sizes. Great Home Goods Find!
And I just adore these gold and red tear drop ornaments. So pretty!
I also got started on my mantel today. The two Hurricane Vases aren't staying. I need something else... Just don't know yet. Got any suggestions?
With our new front doors, we definitely needed to have some wreaths for this year. I decided to make some. I think I might like them.
All of this decorating has definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. I need to get to shopping ASAP. I only have two people checked off of my list. EEEK!
Hope you guys are enjoying decorating too! I want to see your homes all gussied up. Feel free to send me pics or leave a link! Talk soon, friends!
