With the big move coming up (wow, it feels so good to finally be able to say that!), we decided to keep our Christmas decorations simple this year. Except for a few items bought on serious sale last January, I made most things myself.
We're pretty particular about our tree being a noble fir. They're more expensive at the lot, but they're waaaaay prettier. And this year's tree is so pretty, I think I would've been happy just stringing a few lights around it and calling it a day. Then again, I love my little ornament collection so I'd have been sad if we didn't use them.
My favorite ornaments this year might be the pom poms I made last month. They were REALLY easy to make, and add some nice contrast against the other glass ornaments we have. (If you want to make some of your own, designlovefest has a great tutorial here.) Also new this year was our tree star (from World Market) and a few chalkboard ornaments.
AH! Just looking at these pictures makes me so happy. I love this time of year so much!
Are you decorations up yet? What do they look like?
