Christmas Decorations Challenge!
So we're having horrible weather and stuck inside. This seems like the weekend to get out those Christmas decorations and make an effort, but I know myself and will hate the idea of putting too much away when it's over. (That's when it really seems like clutter!)
Here's a question and the challenge...What ''decorations'' instill the most Holiday Spirit at your house? If you chose to downsize decorating this year, what would you choose to make the most effort on, and where?
I'm picking a large dwarf Alberta spruce outside my kitchen window and putting lights on it this year instead of having a Christmas tree inside. I have a green and red berry lighted wreath to hang on the gable end of my gazebo. The Christmas stockings will have to come out, and I'll cut some holly for green arrangements. I have a light, wooden display rack that I hang Christmas cards on that we receive, and a red bowl that was my Grandmother's I like to use. I have a small feather tree that fits on a tabletop, but I'm not certain I want to bother with it this year. Beyond that, I'm not yet sure, but am thinking I'm keeping it very simple this year.
What decorations spark your Holiday? If your challenge is to ''Keep it Simple'', what would that be at your house?
