December 4th - Just three weeks until Christmas means it's time to break out the decorations!
|To some it may not look like much, but I'm only one person!|
In the interest of keeping things somewhat simple, I decided to dedicate one corner to Christmas and just add a few other touches.
|Before: Just a blank corner.|
|After: Christmas Magic!|
Here's a rundown of what went in to the corner:
The basic set of baubles is Silver, Blue and Purple. This year I decided not to use the purple as a lot of my other ornaments are red and I tend to be overly particular about colour matching - to a crazy extreme... My secondary set of matching baubles are big sparkly red christmas lights. They're very obnoxious and I love them. I also set some glass Candy Canes throughout the tree. The rest is made up a mishmash of Disney and random ornaments, along with a set of mini Rudolph figures:
|I want to be a dentist!|
I also set some removable wall decals in the background. I thought the red lines and music notes would work well behind the tree. I'm quite pleased with the result!
As a good 90s kid, there's a number of TY Jingle Beanies in my collection. They don't sit very well on the tree, so they end up all over the place instead - like my TV stand.
|Oh haiiiii, Santa!|
Aside from the beanies, I also added the candy striped candle holders (the lanterns live there year-round) and the "noel" sign with little penguins. The sign is also meant to be a stocking holder, but since I don't have a mantle, this'll do.
The other touches outside the corner went to my bookshelf, on the opposite side of my living room. I added just a few things to make it more Christmas-y.
And a little snowman on the door handle for good measure.
Hopefully tomorrow I will get the chance to decorate my office at work!
Thanks for reading! I hope to get back to updating the blog regularly!
