So today is all about decorating and I gotta tell ya.... This year I am loving me some big balls (mind out of the gutter ladies ha!) But really... Since I decided to get all new stuff for my tree this year I have gotten a lot of the gold and red balls to fill the tree with and it really makes a difference. Thursday night I went to an ornament exchange with the ladies from my church and I thought instead of bringing a "cutesy" ornament, I would bring just a big red glittery ball. I know that I love that for my tree so why wouldn't everyone else right? Well I was wrong :( NO ONE wanted my ball. We do a Chinese gift exchange for the ornaments and I wrapped mine up extra pretty so that it would be one of the first ones picked. Unfortunately my ball never got stolen once. So when it was my turn I just decided to take it for myself ha! I can always use and extra big ball on my tree ;)
Here is the "before" pic of the gift.
Now on to the decorating. I already had done a post on my tree but I thought I would share how I got some of my decorating tips and what materials I used. Here is a picture of my tree again.Show Me Decorating. You can get tons of tricks from them.
So we have 2 trees this year and the other tree is in Hannah's room. I found the cutest (and cheapest) pink tree at Hobby Lobby and I decided to clip some of her bows to it and put it up in her room for Christmas.
