Emily’s Christmas Decorations

This year I wanted to keep my decorations as simple as possible. Our little apartment gets cramped up so easily I decided to keep my 7ft tree in storage (aka Sarah’s basement). It wasn’t until I went down into that basement that I found all my lost beauties! I had to try very hard to choose only my favorites and not to go overboard like I usually do!

It has been hard trying to get the place to feel festive and cozy without a tree and garlands galore, but I finally think I’m getting there…  This twiggy, gold thingy is the only thing I purchased this year.  I’m not sure exactly what it’s supposed to be but I had to have it!  The simple bead garland was inspired by the one in Sar’s kitchen that looks so beautiful.

I’ve also been trying to personalize our home more…love the gold letters found HERE, but not sure if I like our name plastered on the walls?! Thank you mammy for the amazing glittered pine cones from Gatehouse. I LOVE them!

Gold sprays found last January at Michaels for $.19 each. Gold wreath $1.49 from Roberts a few years back after Christmas clearance.

Another attempt at trying to keep it simple with my favorite champagne decorations.

Do any of you live in a little place like mine? How do you manage to decorate and get festive?

We cannot believe how quickly Christmas is upon us.  We wish you all a most wonderful Christmas!!!

    I love your shimmery elegant decor! Champagne-colored decorations are simply lovely for this time of year. I really need to decorate my staircase… It’s so neglected at my house.

    Merry Christmas!!
