I didn't do it the first few days of December because our weather was unbearably warm, topping at 80 degrees for the high. This weekend I tried to start decorating as I was catching up on the Walking Dead. Big mistake, homies! That show will kill ALL your warm and fuzzies for approximately 48 hours.
Last night felt finally right. So I dragged all my decorations from the attic to start.
I put on Cee Lo's Christmas Album and Zooey's Christmas Album to set the mood, 'cause that's just how I roll, and lit some gingerbread/baked pear/cranberry/magical mermaid tears candles.
I usually have a theme each year that I strive for. Last year it was Classic Christmas, and I scoured some local antique and thrift store for vintage ornaments and flocked vintage reindeer. I also bought some black and white ornaments in anticipation of this year's Christmas, which I had planned to be a Black Swan Christmas, in black and white.
But that movie is hella crazy and so this year I just decided to pull out everything. Go with a everything but the kitchen sink approach.
I have neon colors, right up against homemade ornaments, right near classic Christmas, right near wooden reindeer. There is no theme but hopefully you'll come away with some inspiration.
How are your decorations coming? Tell me! I wanna know!
