I absolutely love decorating for Christmas. Each year we put up a fake tree with some non-traditional colors in our dining room and get a real tree with traditional Norwegian decorations in our living room. I put up our fake tree on Black Friday. It’s a small white tree with white lights. I used to decorate it with blue and purple and white whimsical decorations such as crystal snowflakes,, cherubs, and glittery icicles.
Last year I decided it was time for a change and bought packages of bold jewel toned plastic balls. I found an gold roll of ribbon that goes great with the other colors. To finish the tree I added a bow instead of a star at the top. .
I also hung up some of my gold wreaths over my mirror with some more gold ribbon.
I think simple decorations are the best. I have collected a ton of glass vases from all of the weddings I’ve been too, and I like to put decorations into them that you wouldn’t expect, such as a string of lights, or ornaments.
I’ll be putting up the real tree in a few more weeks so I’ll post some pictures of my traditional Norwegian decorations soon!
