I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was nice and relaxing. I caught up on a little bit of work and gathered some items to start my holiday decorating this week!
As I mentioned in Friday’s post, this year I am going to have to get creative with my Christmas tree. I have enjoyed a large tree of my very own for many years. I started the tradition of picking out a 5′ real tree the day after Thanksgiving when I was 13. I would lug it home and set-it up in my bedroom. I then went to work twisting the lights onto each branch, adding the ornaments and finally put it on a timer. Every night fall I would fall asleep to the twinkling lights of Christmas.
This will be the first year I have not had room for a tree at least 5′, but I am kind of excited about starting a new tradition. For those of you decorating a small space this year or those of you who just want to add a touch of green throughout, here are a few inspirations for you to get you inspired about decorating with small trees…
When I first realized I would not have room for a Christmas tree I was a little bummed, but after so many beautiful inspirations I am up to challenge and really excited.
If you are planning to put up your tree this week, check out my tutorial on stringing lights.
