It's that time of year over here that I start to get my Christmas on. I'm struggling a bit this year in getting motivated to get it all together. Does anyone else have these kind of years? It might be that I just have too much stuff, been collecting Christmas goodies from day one, too many different options.
A few years ago a bought a beautiful 12 foot tree and it really was a Christmas dream. I will post those photos in my upcoming Christmas blogs as well as other Christmas ideas. I put up three trees last year and still had enough decoration themes for two more. I have always decorated around my interior design themes in my home, thus the decorations enough for a bazillion trees. I always have done a kid tree that is fun and full of the kids childhood ornaments. I've given the kids most of their decorations now as they have families of their own and their own babies. That being said, until my last one moves out and i don't feel like doing a fun tree, there will always be room for that.
Essential for Christmas creativity, I gotta turn on the Christmas tunes...and I gotta sing. If not, I just can't pull it off. I have included some of my favourite Christmas playlists here for you to get your Christmas on. Some tunes are new and old, some from my childhood, some from the years raising my own kids and now, raising myself. Hope you enjoy, click each picture to link you directly to the playlists!
The quandary this year is which colour themes to go with or should I just mix them all up? The colours will still of course have the blue and gold in the main tree. Any thoughts? I'm willing to take votes! Check me out on CharisOnLife Instagram and vote in the poll in my stories!
I buy my decorations all over the place, I I don't buy the most expensive. I don't believe it makes a difference on a tree as long as your tree is put together beautifully and the way you like it with the things you love. I have home made decorations, Dollar store decorations, I always have luck at Canadian Tire and of course my home away from home, HomeSense.
My kind of excited about mixing it up a bit this year, I don't know if you are like me but I get used to putting the same things in the same places because it works. Keep posted to see how I'm making out this year. Let the decorating begin.
