I think that Lowe’s might have some decorations for sale for Black Friday but I don’t know if you want to handle the crowds.

We are just getting into our place in December so I don’t think I will do much for the holidays, more worried about moving in!

How fun! be sure to take pictures.  If you are going to be in that house next year the very best time to buy decorations is December 26th! seriously, I get all of my lights, etc then. I also get all of my wrapping paper, bows, bags etc.

Like you, I try to buy stuff for steals after Christmas.  I’m also a huge online shopper, there’s so many great deals online.  I hope you’ll take lots of photos and share with us all! πŸ™‚

It’s our first Christmas together in our own home, so I am really excited too! πŸ™‚ I bought some lights on clearance last year and scored a couple beautiful (new) decorations and a gorgeous wrought iron tree stand at our local thrift store for a fraction of the price.  I am planning on a gold and teal blue colour theme so I can use up some of our teal ribbon leftover from our wedding.

This is our first married Christmas, too! We’re in a two-bedroom apartment, so a little small, but we still have a decent amount of space to decorate. I think that will be my project for after the Thanksgiving weekend. I just have to figure out how to get my husband to go decor shopping with me!

Anyone have tips for getting started with a decor collection? Any must-haves?

@Gemstone: I am a big theme person.  My sister does snowmen and silver accents and I do nutcrackers and green accents.

@panterapeach: Great idea! I’ll try to think of one. πŸ™‚ That may prevent me from buying up every Christmas decoration that I see!

I made many of my own decorations including gingerbread men.  It’s a good way to save money.

It’s our first Christmas in our “forever until we buy a house” rented home πŸ˜› so we are pretty excited too! All the previous Christmases we’ve been together have been us living separately an hour away from each other, both in super tiny shitty apartments that we didn’t bother to decorate. Now we live in a pretty big duplex, with a yard and bushes outside that we can decorate, windows we can put candles in, and room for a full-size tree! I’m sooo excited. We’re decorating tomorrow!!
