How early/late do you decorate for Christmas?
It’s (finally) beginning to look like Christmas around here…
For once, I got all my shopping finished early (thanks to my very good friend The Internet), but I slacked on decorating and just finished up this week. With three kiddos, including a very active 14-month-old, I kept things simple this year cuz mama needs to keep her sanity. 😉
Apparently I’m not the only blogger who’s a bit behind on their Christmas decorating, so some of my friends are here also (at the end of this post) sharing their finally-decorated spaces – better late than never!
I kept my Christmas mantel decor white again, but I changed a few things from last year. I love how it works for Christmas and all throughout winter. Win-win!
Sparkly things are my favorite.
Here’s a peek at night with the tree nearby:
P.S. I cannot find the star for the top of the tree anywhere, and I’m about to give up looking for it… hey, at least the tree is up though 😉
I’m also working on a holiday centerpiece for our Christmas Eve family dinner (on our new dining set – woot) but I’m not sure how soon it will be ready for pics.. I’ll try to get some for you guys though!
Merry Christmas and happy decorating, friends!
