This year the lighting of the tree will be this Saturday Nov.21 which is great because it frees up Thanksgiving night for me to start some decorating. This year I plan to use the same color scheme that I used last year which is Silver, Turquoise, and Glass.
I have be honest. I never let the kids help me decorate
(this is a not so flattering image of my tree last year)
Allow me to talk about this tree for a minute. I purchased this tree (9ft) thinking it would be great since the tree we had in our apartment was 4ft. After getting it home and realizing that it's HUGE and that it cost a lot to decorate a big tree I stopped purchasing ornaments after my bill reached $250. I NEVER EVER EVER spend money like that on decorations for any holiday. And that was $250 for ornaments. So I decided to make due with those and wait until after Christmas to rack up on clearance. So stay tuned for this year's tree!
Okay so back to the purpose of this post!
This year I thought about mixing a more traditional color scheme in the family room so the kids can have fun with a tree of their own. It sound good right now, but I'm starting to think of my bill at check out again...ugh! I like the reds and the greens and the golds and whites too, just not all over. This may be something I have to think more about, but here are a few inspirations I've found to keep me wanting the traditional look
What are your thoughts on holiday decorating? Do you decorate for your liking only? Do you decorate for your kids? Or, do you not decorate at all because you can spend your money on something better?!
