We spent the evening trimming our tree last night, although it didn’t take too much time with the decorations I chose to use this year. Since we were going on vacation and didn’t have too much time with the tree, I didn’t want to go to in great depths with it. I chose to have a simple, rustic type theme this year with no tree ornaments, and just a few minimal, but festive, touches to bring it all together.
My main switch-up this year was to use big colorful bauble lights on the tree instead of my usually white lights with glittery accents. I used a plaid blanket to wrap the bulb of our tree and keep things looking like a rustic woodsy cabin. Very simple accessories like a snow studded wooden star and brass stocking hangers rounded out the simplicity of the look.
It’s pretty simple, but I think it makes a statement!
The hardest part of the decor was holding myself back from buying a bazillion things while I was at Target shopping. I suppose that isn’t such a bad problem to have though, right?
How do you like the direction I took? Different from what I usually do, huh?
Do you have a christmas ‘theme’ this year?
