Although I still haven't unpacked all my things, we decorated for Christmas last weekend and I'm so excited. We got our own live tree, ornaments, etc etc etc. We even have the glade plugins in a Christmas theme! I haven't done any crafty stuff, really, but I still thought I'd share.
First up was the tree, of course. Boyfriend wanted a teeny tiny one in a pot, but I managed to convince him to get a bigger one in a tree stand. It's still small - exactly my height, but small. Here's a size comparison:
We went to Walmart, Target, the Dollar Store, and Home Depot to get all the lights, tinsel, and glitz. I really wanted mistletoe and a nativity, and found a nativity at Home Depot. I got bells to hang up in the doorway...
... Little bulbs for my lavendar plant...
We searched and searched for mistletoe, but couldn't find any at any of the places we went. Luckily, my mom sent a care package of Christmas ornaments, candy canes, and... MISTLETOE! It looked like someone has spray painted it green, and half of it crumbled apart when we tired to take it out of the box, but gosh darn it we put it up! It makes me think of Charlie Brown.
I also made a little display on one of the shelveswith old jars of pasta sauce, candy canes, and extra tiny bulbs that we couldn't fit on the tree. Oh, and pretzel M&M's.
Here's our tree in all it's glory! The presents underneath are for Boyfriend, his birthday is today.
And one from last night:
How are your Christmas/Holiday preparations going?
