Alright, confession time. In the 5 1/2 years that I and Chad have been married, we have set up a Christmas Tree once in our home. Horrible, I know! To justify it, we have so much family so close that we don't really celebrate Christmas or even Christmas Eve at our home because we are with family. I know that's a lame excuse but it's the truth. Additionally, our apartment is PACKED, especially now that we have Geddy boy--we just don't have the space for a big tree and lots of decorations.
Being Geddy's first Christmas, I have Mama guilt because I have nothing festive up. So I have been on the prowl for some cute ideas and so I began perusing Pinterest for some alternatives to a large Christmas tree. I found some really cool and unique ideas.
|LOVE this one but it's too much work. Via.|
|Unique and artistic. Via.|
|Love it but don't have a chalk wall :( Via.|
|I actually like the wood and the lights. Via.|
|Simple and cute. Like the incorporation of lights. Via.|
|Love the stick tree on the left. Simple and good use of ornaments. Via.|
So, ultimately, I am going to put my best efforts towards decorating but...it looks like some hard work. We will see what happens, if I create something and I actually like it, I will post about it but we will see :)
