When it comes time to decorate for your Christmas party, it makes sense that you don’t want to spend a lot of money. The good news is that you don’t have to! These party decorations are inexpensive and look beautiful when you put them all up. It doesn’t take a lot of money to make things look festive!
Snowman decorated Christmas trees make for great decorations. Whether you buy a tabletop display complete with Christmas trees and snow men or you buy a large snowman decoration for your Christmas tree, snowmen are a clear favorite when it comes to holiday decorating! There are even Frosty the Snowman tree toppers that can turn your regular Christmas tree into something even more unique and memorable.
As an adult, I noticed that more and more people used these lawn decorations. If they were around when I was a child, I bet I would have loved the decorations even more. I sure love them now.
When I was a kid, I would make my mother take me to the Hallmark store so I could look at the giant display of keepsake ornaments. Each ornament told a story and when I gazed at them, my imagination would run wild.
There were the little houses, the ornaments celebrating popular films, and some that feature classic Christmas images, like Santa Clause.
We have such busy lives it can be difficult to find time to wrap a gift properly. That’s why I think that decorative Christmas boxes with lids are pure genius. I can make a gift look beautiful without putting forth the effort to wrap it. Brilliant.
So, each year, I review my stock of decorative boxes. I try to have some on hand in an assortment of sizes just in case I need to wrap something at the last minute. Otherwise, I just buy them as I need them.
Nothing says, “I’m ready for Christmas” than knitted Christmas stockings. When I was a child, I loved it when it was time to hang the Christmas stockings. Because we didn’t have a mantel (we had a wood stove) I knew that it was Christmas time when my mother would hook the stockings over the nobs of the hutch in the dining room.
I was around eleven years old when I saw my first bear. It was a jarring experience and even though the bear was off to the distance, I was a little scared. As an adult, I’ve grown to respect these animals. Not only that, but I think they are adorable. I love putting adorable things on my tree.
This isn’t the best way, though, because they always seem to fall down – the card stock is too heavy and most magnets aren’t strong enough.
When it comes time to set up the Christmas tree, my favorite is to incorporate elegant Christmas tree ornaments with other ornaments I may have collected over the years. My ornament collection is fairly eclectic, but the elegant ones are those that seem to tie the whole look together. It doesn’t matter if I held on to an ornament I made in kindergarten, or one someone gave me that is falling apart. As long as I have some elegant choices, my tree looks gorgeous.
Do you have a “thing” for Bernese Mountain Dogs or know someone who does? If so, you may consider buying a few of these cute little Bernese Mountain Dog Christmas Ornaments to decorate your tree with or to give as gifts.
I don’t know about you, but I find wrapping gifts to be frustrating, especially when wrapping large boxes or those gifts that have an odd shape. It’s also a lot more convenient to fold a sweater, wrap it in tissue paper, and place it in the bag than it is to find a box and then wrap it. No, huge Christmas bags is definitely the easiest way to make a gift look gorgeous.
Don’t get me wrong. I look forward to the yearly ritual of putting up the Christmas tree. However, there are elements of that tradition that I could do without. For instance, lights can be a little stressful – especially when they get tangled or when some of the lights go dead. What can we do about it?
There are two standard colors for Christmas here in the United States – red and green. Even though it is the jewel toned versions of these colors that are standard, there are some variations. One of the variations that I particularly love is mint green. I’ll buy any of the mint green Christmas ornaments that I see – I love the color THAT much.
Each year, I watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas and my favorite character by far is the Abominable Snowman. My favorite part is when The Bumble realized that this creature wasn’t evil, but rather misunderstood. An Abominable Snowman Christmas decoration is something that helps me remember this crucial moment in this classic Christmas special.
