I can’t believe it’s only 9 days until Christmas and I haven’t shared my living room yet! One of the great benefits of having a fake tree is that I can set it up early, so I’ve literally been enjoying it for more than a month already!
The girlies (as I’ve said before) are getting really into all the different holidays and things that change around the house. Last year I didn’t dare put up a full size tree, they were just at that age where they were into everything. This year to try and prevent them touching it I built a wall of boxes around the bottom to create some distance, it’s worked like a charm!
Like we shared last year (see HERE), I gave my clearance fake tree a bit of a makeover with some spray paint. I just love how it gives a hint of flocked but still has a lot of green coming through.
I always look forward to stores getting in their Christmas goodies, yes…even if it is September! Although I have bins of decorations, I still like to buy one or two items each year to add to my collection. This year it was THIS garland from Target which now has 30% off!
I’ve loved adding some lights on the other side of the room with this garland and nativity.
I do miss having a real tree, and we’ll go back to that in the future, but for now bits of fresh greenery here and there will have to make do!
My mother-in-law gifted me THIS nativity the first Christmas we were married, I’m still in love eleven years later and hope I will be for a lifetime!
Thanks for visiting my festive living room, I hope you enjoyed it!
