Hello all! Can you believe that is it 44 days until Christmas (via the countdown on ebay)?!? Wow, has time flown, wasn't it just Summer? Last night in preparation for the quickly approaching holiday I ventured out to Hobby Lobby. I had so much fun and since Hubby had a dinner for work I was all by myself roaming isle after isle of Christmas fun! The real reason for this trip was to pick out a color scheme and ornaments for our second tree. Since we now live in a house and have much more space than ever before (and lots of pleading to Hubby) we will now have a tree in our den (fake) and a tree in out living room which we are going to trek out and cut down ourselves at a tree farm! Though Hubby was at first very opposed to this idea, too much time and too messy he said, I won out and were are going to go the first weekend in December! This left me with the dilemma of decorating two trees! Since our first is a hodge-podge of ornaments that we have slowly collected (some are from when we were kids) I didn't know what to do. After wandering around for about a half an hour I decided on greens and browns with gold as an accent. I figured this color scheme would fit our very traditional jewel-tone home. I also picked up some cute little Christmas cupcake wrappers and some other crafty things as well! I think we may go back this weekend because A. Hubby wants to go to Menard's which is right next door and B. because I want to go back and wander through the Christmas wonderland once more and pick up some garland and a tree topper! I'm wondering, what do you all put on top of your tree(s)? Growing up we put a tiny Santa hat and now on our one tree we have a tiny decorative mitten. I want to do something original on the second too? Or maybe just a star, I'm so indecisive! Also, if any of you have made your own what did you make and how, I'm very curious?!? Thanks!
I'm hoping it will look something like this! But with green ornaments mixed in with the gold and brown! I also bought green ribbon with a gold pattern on it instead of the gold ribbon seen here :)
