I have helped decorate a total of 3 Christmas trees, in 3 different houses this year. At Thanksgiving we put up our family tree with my parents. Then my roommates and I went crazy with Christmas decor. And the other weekend I joined my aunt and uncle and my two cousins putting up their tree.
(If you want to try it yourself, all you need is day-old popcorn, whole cranberries, wax dental floss, a needle and a lot of time and patience)
Below are a few more snapshots of the other festive touches around the house:
We hung the NOEL banner that I made for our family's Christmas card over our living room entry. I just used green and plaid card stock and then printed out the letters and attached a fun pom pom ribbon! I love seeing it when I walk into the house.
I also love seeing JOY displayed on the bookshelf/catch-all/ mantel substitute right by the front door. Both words remind me to be always joyful during this season!
We didn't have a wreath this year but I love our big bow- our house looks like a present! I love seeing every one's holiday decorations, and I just love how happy and homey my house feels with the Christmas tree in the front window. Plus, my roommates and I had such a fun time decorating!!
