Deck the Halls

Last night, my mom and I decorated our Christmas tree. It’s a tradition that our Christmas decorations come out right after Thanksgiving.

Our decorations have been collected over the years and are favorites because of their sentimental value. But everyone may not have a collection like ours… in fact, when I get ready to decorate my first on-my-own apartment next year, I will have to start building my own collection of Christmas decorations.

Here are a few things I adore that I will likely start my own decorating tradition with next year. They’re all from Target, so you can either buy them in-store or online for reasonable prices. Target is one of my favorite stores.

I’ve never had a real tree and, although many people disagree with me, I think artificial trees are just great. We got a new tree this year that is pre-lit, and loved it! Not having to deal with lights made decorating a lot more fun.

I like the folksy stitching on this tree skirt.

I like trees that don’t look overloaded with ornaments, so I’d keep it simple with this assortment of gold balls.

This serving tray . . .

. . . would make a gorgeous centerpiece with a few of these pillar candles on top . . .

Finally, I love the rustic look of this wreath.

Happy decorating!
