ever since i moved away from home, home being my parents house, i’ve never really decorated for christmas because i’ve always gone home and celebrated there. last christmas, i decided to change this and i did a VERY MINI decorating job. it was me and d’s first christmas, and with bri on the way i wanted to come home and feel a little of that christmas cheer even if on christmas we were gonna be with family. and as our christmas plans this year have been a mystery even to ourselves i almost left the decorating to whoever’s house we would be blessing with our appearance. ALMOST.
i dont know what i was thinking, not decorate for our first christmas with babygirl?! im glad i came to my senses. even though my decorating budget isn’t very large that didn’t mean i couldn’t bring some xmas spirit into the house.
i bought a baby tree for baby’s first christmas 🙂 and found some decorations on sale !
i cut bits of gold fake flowers and used them as tree filler, and then found a couple of different shaped gold ornaments.
i decided to do a red and gold theme christmas, and decorated the tree with white lights, red balls and red ribbon.
and then around the house i set up some garland which i wrapped with ribbon and lights, and a simple small wreath that i wrapped with red and gold ribbon.
and took some glass vases and filled with tinsel and red and gold ornaments and candy canes, of course
im also working on a couple of other DIY signs to go around the house with things i already had: cardboard, glitter and paint. oh and some holiday spirit 🙂 and of course who can forget cut out snowflakes?? ill be making a couple of those too!
