Christmas time is here! I used to stress myself out during the holidays. All of the shopping for perfect gifts and traveling to see family really took a toll on me. As I got older and became a parent, the holidays became more about doing fun things for my son instead of the usual hysteria. This year, I am spending the holidays at home, which has put me in a very merry mood. I decided to do a little bit of Christmas decorating.
I was adamant about not spending a lot of money this year on decorations. All of those ornaments, trees, and lights can get really expensive. To save some money, I bought a small amount of discounted decorations, and I also decorated with items that I already own.
I kept the decorations light and simple. I live in a smaller home, so I didn’t want to overdecorate and make my living room look cluttered.
Here are the links to most of the decor you see in the photos:
4′ White Tree (Big Lots)
Nutcrackers (Big Lots)
White Stockings (At Home Store)
Paper Houses (DCWV – sold out)
Brush Trees (JOANN – sold out)
*Some of the decorations on the mantel are either old or sold out, so I no longer have the information on where to purchase.
I believe that this dollhouse is the best thing out of all my decorations. The house was a gift I received a long time ago. It looked completely different than what it looks now. I plan on doing a blog post on how I painted the house and gave it a makeover.
Here’s a closer look at my Christmas village. These items are currently out of stock, but you can purchase other sets on the DCWV website.
I had so much fun decorating for Christmas! Thank you for reading my blog post. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
