We decorated our home last weekend. This is our first Christmas in our new place, so it was kind of fun finding new "homes" for all of the decor. In our old apartment, everything went in the same place every year. I definitely enjoyed being able to mix it up this year!
You have no idea how excited I was to decorate a mantle!! I spent hours on Pinterest getting ideas and getting inspired (note: I didn't end up using any Pinterest ideas.. just my own). And I love how it turned out!
Most of my decorations were purchased while shopping the day after Christmas. You think black Friday has good deals?? My mom and I go every year at about 6 am. All Christmas decor is usually 75% off or more, everywhere.
The red and blue Christmas bulbs in the vases were pulled out of the neighbor's trash (yes, trash picker here, and proud of it!)
The green Silent Night plaque was made and given to me by my sister-in-law last year for Christmas. Isn't she talented??
This is Isaac's first Christmas. That is me and him hanging his first ornament on his first Christmas tree. It's a pirate ornament that my mom gave me last year to give to him.
The Nativity scene is Isaac's "Little People" set. We have it set up on a shelf for him to pull up to and play with. If you push on the angel, it lights up and sings "Away in a Manger". He loves it.
What did you most enjoy about decorating this year??
