I am creating little bits of Christmas where I can. Can you believe that we still don’t have our tree up?! Our daughter just finished here last exam yesterday and will be home later tonight. She’ll help get us into the Christmas Spirit and we’ll get that tree up before the weekend is over!
It’s not that I haven’t decorated for Christmas. I have been creating little bits of Christmas around the house so it really does feel like the holidays. There is just no tree.
This bright red tray is new this year and I have loved putting it together. The tray is a bright and glossy cherry red. The snowman and the trees were picked up from before Thanksgiving which is when you now have to shop for new décor these days before it all gets picked over by the first week in December. I hate that! And then I added some more Mason Jars with Epsom Salt snow and a white candles.
And I made the “Noel” burlap banner from some pre-wired burlap ribbon that I found at Hobby Lobby and I stenciled it.
In fact, I made a whole bunch of banners that I took down to Rustic Romance. They look fabulous in the Christmas trees down at the shop. And I am sure they will look awesome here at home too…that is when we get our tree!
