Christmas Decorations

I LOVE CHRISTMAS!  The reds and greens and garlands and wreaths and glitter, I love the fact that you can glitter ANYTHING for Christmas and get away with it.  My house is not as decked out as I would like it, but being newlyweds we just don’t have the money to afford all the beautiful decorations that I would love to have, we’ll accumulate it over the next several years.

One of my favorite decorations we have currently is our advent calendar, which I’ve been talking about recently because of our homemade Christmas!

I made my advent calendar last year because those tiny ones just were not what I wanted.  I just used cute decorative lunch bags, chip board numbers, a little glitter, some kitchen twine and Command hooks. Between this and our October engagement party where I glittered lots of spiders and skeletons and pumpkins for an awesome wreath and party decorations, we’re still trying to get the glitter off the floor and everything we own…it’s totally worth it!  Here are a few close ups of the individual days!

There is also the tree, which is of course the focal point.  It’s full of ornaments that mean something to either me or the mister or both of us!  We try to get ornaments from each trip we take, as well as an ornament to remember the year by.  We have a snowtflake for our first Christmas together in 2007, a really sad clear ball with horrible writing on the front and glitter and crystals inside to remember 2008.  We actually have 3 ornaments to remember 2009 by, but it was the year we got engaged, so it was a big year, our Just Engaged ornament, which I still need to put the date on, a cute picture frame with a picture of us playing in the snow, and a bronzed leaf from Mammoth Cave, we bought on the day we got engaged there.  This year we have a bride and groom to commemorate the year we got married, awww, how cute!

I almost forgot about the ball we bought on our honeymoon at Sandals Antigua!

I love having all these decorations out, even though it effects the set up of my living room.  It will make me sad to take it all down at the end of them month!
