I like tasteful but festive! So nothing too over the top!

Simply. 

 

Okay, just kidding.  I haven’t actually taken any pictures yet this year.  I need to get around to that and this post has inspired me! I’ll try to share some photos tonight.

 

Here’s my favorite thing to so with the clippings from the tree…I put them in the bathroom and that room is so small that the smell takes over.  🙂

 

Here’s what I did at work with clippings that the groundskeepers gave us (we had no budget for any kind of decor and didn’t want to do anything that would be specific to one religion):

Such pretty pictures! Unfortunately, we’re a little boring this year–we didn’t even get a tree! But I did put up the stockings and, um, stacked our presents on the coffee table. Haha. How festive.

@Mrs.tobe: I do lights outdoors and a wreath but for some reason I haven’t taken a picture of iT! I will have to rectify that!

We put lights outside on the bushes. Inside we have a tree in the picture window 🙂

We also have stockings up and some little nick-nack’s throughout the house.

This is usually what our outside decor looks like, but we don’t have it all up, yet.  It’s been rainy the last few days, and we’ve been lazy.

We live in Northeast Wisconsin and I can’t even have a real Christmas tree. So, here’s my fake 2-footer with ornaments from mine and Mr.TKE’s youth on it.

ETA: That’s all the decorating we do for the holidays. The tree was up for a week before I even had a chance to decorate it. It’s sitting on top of our dining table (which we rarely use).

We dont put up a tree, since we are never home for the actual holiday. I put a few things up here and there but really nothing crazy. Fiance put up lights. They look really nice.

I recycled a lot of wedding decor to decorate the house this year — we got married last New Year’s Eve. I took one of our manzanita centerpiece and put it on a bookshelf. We also have lots of silver garland which I strung around our door and also put on the tops of tables and shelves. We’re not going to be home for Christmas so we didn’t buy a tree this year, but I did put out a little 1ft fake tree that I used in college. It’s sitting on our coffee table and looked quite nice with the presents for my parents under it.

I guess you could say my Christmas decorating style is classic.  I have garland around the fireplace hearth and mason jars filled with water & cranberries with a floating candle.  On the wall, I just wrapped some DVD’s in Christmas paper and ribbon and stuck some double sided mounting tape and slapped them up on the wall.  Let’s see what else…I have a big hurricane vase on my dining room table that I put a tall candle in and some green/red ornaments in with it.  Other than that, and our Christmas tree, that’s all I have going on right now!

I love Christmas….though this year we live in an apartment so things have been a little different, but – we put up lights around the outside of our apartment, we have our tree infront of the window inside where everyone can look in. Ornaments are kind of a mix of everything…we bought new ones, used old ones, different colors and shapes. I love the vintage looking glass ornaments, and my favorite are the simple frosted ones with glittery snowflakes just because they pick up the light. The lights we use are multi-colored, just because we feel theyre more festive and fun and we arent worried about being too traditional/classy.

I have some random Christmas items like a cookie platter and snowglobe set out, and I like to display all the Christmas cards that have been sent from family over the years aswell. Some of these cards I have had since I was a little girl and they have come from grandparents/loved ones who have passed away. I feel closer to them when I pull out the cards and open them up and read the notes in them again.

I absolutely love decorating.  I didn’t go all out this year as it’s mine and FI’s first Christmas on our own.  Money is a bit tight so I couldn’t go all out like I really wanted to.  All I put up were:

  • Christmas tree with lights, ball ornaments, and tree skirt.
  • A little village with trees and people from the Dollar Tree.
  • A star.
  • Fake snow.
  • Light up gingerbread houses.
  • A sleigh that I painted myself.
  • A yarn wreath that I made myself.

I really wanted to put up light garland, snowflakes, etc.  There’s always next year!

Oh, and I can’t forget about the stockings!
