We've gotten almost all of our Christmas decorations put up at home! It's really starting to feel like the holidays. Decorating our own house is so much more fun than an apartment.
We started last weekend when we picked out our Christmas tree and put it up. We had a lot of fun picking out our tree, but the one we picked out ended up being a little taller than our ceiling... so we had to trim the very top of it for our angel to fit.
This year, we chose to add a little bit of silver to our red and gold collection of ornaments. We hung our stockings on the mantle and added some garland.
This weekend, we hung wreaths on all of our windows. I found a great deal on 24" wreaths and red bows at AC Moore with coupons. I found on Pinterest that using clear suction cup hangers is one of the best ways to hang wreaths. This works well with our windows because the bottom sash tilts in and you can remove the screen from the inside. We were able to put the wreaths up from inside fairly easily and so far, they're working really well!
We have some other decorations throughout the house, including a small lit tree in the foyer. We also have greenery on the banisters on the stairs and a wreath on the front door.
And, we got our Christmas cards in the mail this week from TinyPrints. I'll be mailing them out to our family and friends this week! Darcy even helped us make them ;)
