Very few things in life make me as happy as Thanksgiving. I say this all the time, but it is the most underrated holiday of the year. There aren’t the same pressures that come along with Christmas & the stresses of buying that perfect gift, you get to spend time with family, and you can eat/cook all of the food you want! For those of us with full-time jobs, the leisure to cook and experiment for hours in the kitchen is a once-a-year treat.
Thanksgiving is also the perfect time to put up the Christmas decorations, play some holiday tunes, and
fail try to re-create those childhood holiday memories. This year I went a little crazy at Michael’s (who is having an awesome 50% off their Christmas decor, btw) and found the perfect glittery poinsettias and curly sticks for my Christmas tree topper.
I found some other creative christmas tree decoration themes I thought were worth
copying sharing…like this Kitchen themed tree from HGTV.
“Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree…” I thought this Christmas tree from Anthropologie was a cute way to use some old sheet music, or maybe buy an old hymnal from a thrift store and cut the squares yourself. Definite DIY potential!
If you have kids, or you just love Candyland like me, you will love this tree. You would need a dumptruck of cool decorations to make it seem as full as this, but one day, I promise I’m going to do this in my kids’ play room or something.
