So it’s true, my Christmas decor have been up for a week now and I couldn’t love it more. I just get very anxious to put everything up and it’s so pretty that I don’t want to wait after Thanksgiving. I also grew up in Brazil where people do their Christmas decor super early! Don’t get me wrong, if you know me you know that I totally embraced the American culture, I love Thanksgiving and the meaning of it, but putting the Christmas decor up before is my thing.
Anyway, we got out tree awhile ago at the Balsam Hill website. They make beautiful trees and it basically looks like the real ones minus the mess, my cats jumping around, and I’m freaking out about fires, watering the tree and all that. So I always knew I wanted a fake tree that looks real, especially if already comes with lights, like ours. Our ornaments are my favorite part too. We’ve been collecting since we got married and we’ve been buying it every time we travel somewhere or see something we like, so this year we got to put everything up for the first time. It’s magical!
I also have some fun decor around the house and some super cute Nativity Sets… my favorite is from Alessi. Their Nativity Set is so sweet and it always brings the biggest smile on my face every time I look at it. Overall, Christmas to us is a special time to be celebrated or as Dylan always says it’s “Jesus’ Birthday and where is the party?”
