Is it too early to be thinking about this?
Last year, I used a lot of red in my Christmas decorating.
But even by the end of last year, I knew I was going to go more neutral this time around. Our tree will be in the dining room bay windows, with its traditional colored lights and collection of mismatched ornaments. And the dining room will have more traditional Christmas colors. But in the living room, I’m going to put up a table top tree that is “pretty” with white lights and matching, neutral gold and cream ornaments. The rest of the room will be accessorized in the same peaceful colors. Here’s some inspiration:
This is a “family tree.” Each tag has a family member’s name on it. How cool is that?
I LOVE Miss Mustard Seed’s Christmas decorations this year. In fact, I made a few small ones myself yesterday! But they’re not quite finished, so pictures will have to wait.
Some decorative stockings like these from Cherished Vintage. I’m going to use my massive collection of tan/cream remnants (remember, I used them on my pumpkins, too?) to make some pretty stockings. I know I commented on someone else’s blog, who had made a collection of beautiful stockings from a variety of neutral fabrics…but doggone-it, I can’t find it again!
