Maybe it’s a little early for a Christmas post, but I have certainly been thinking about it. I’ve already started Christmas shopping and been scoping out Christmas decor. I’ve gotten Christmas catalogs in the mail, joined a Christmas Countdown group on Facebook, and been dreaming up what Anthony’s and my first married Christmas will look like.
Between Anthony and I, we have three Christmas trees (and I got rid of one). We have a 7 foot tree, a 4 foot tree, and a 1 foot tree. I think the 4 foot and 1 foot trees are small enough to be themed each year (at least one of them). This year, the 4 foot tree will be silver and white and very natural. It will hold the Anthropologie mercury glass P ornaments that I used down our wedding aisle, bottlebrush animals we picked up after Christmas last year, and the water-less snow globe ornaments I’m making.
The ornaments I’m making are inspired by this salt shaker I picked up at the end of the season last year.
With some clear glass bulbs, sandpaper, glue, bottlebrush trees, and faux snow, I put together a few of these.
The 7 foot tree will hold all European blown glass ornaments I have been collecting for years and the new one we used as our wedding cake topper. Last year, the 1 foot tree was in my office (see it on Instagram) and was styled after a tree in the White House Garden Room. This year, I may theme it around a tree Anthony and I saw at the American Museum of Natural History on our Thanksgiving trip to New York last year. More on that in a later post.
Have you done any Christmas activities yet?
