When you look at displays of Christmas trees, you often see ones that feature either large ornaments or small ones. I say, “why not mix the two?” That’s exactly what I decided to do this year! I used two large gold flowers (one pictured right) along with several red Reindeer and added them to my tree. Mixing large and small ornaments is a great way to bring extra texture and depth to your tree. No matter what type of large ornament you choose, you can create a mix-and-match look that will make your tree both chic and gorgeous!
Hello, and hope you all had a Merry Christmas! For today’s post, I’ll be sharing how I decorated the dining room window. As seen above, I decided to go with a snowflake theme! I used pink, blue, green, and red snowflakes for the window and wall. Additionally, I added two silver flowers and a gold ornament to tie it to the theme I used on the Christmas tree. The items I used can be found at big box and dollar stores-a great and economical way to dress up any window! Though Christmas is over, you can still do something similar for New Year’s. And what’s easier than dressing up a window? No matter what 2015-themed decorations you decide to use, you’ll be sure to ring in the new year in style!
Instead of keeping the same pictures on your wall year-round, try replacing them with wreaths. The wreath on the right (I made two) replaced a set of pictures that framed the dining room window. Buy a plain wreath at your local craft store, then decorate it how you want. I used mini-bulbs, snowflakes, reindeer, birds, flowers, and other ornaments. I suggest sticking your ornaments within the branches instead of gluing them. This allows you to re-use the wreath next year (and for other holidays), providing a fun and budget friendly holiday tradition.
