I wanted to share with you some pictures of how I decorate for Christmas. I’ve been collecting cute little Christmas knick-nacks for quite a few years now, and pulling them out to decorate brings back memories of the place in my life I was when I got them… many before I was married. I love the decorate in the traditional red and green with silver sprinkled in. I’ve seen beautiful hand made decor all over blog land, with varying color schemes that are breathtaking. It seems everyone has a whole new set of decorations each year, but I like the comfort and familiarity of my history coming out with the decor. So welcome to the Duke Home for Christmas!
We have two trees. Some people come into our home and make mention of that as if it is super odd, but it doesn’t seem odd to me because my mom had about 10 trees in varying sizes. I think a lot of people have two, right? Ok, maybe not. We go cut down a tree each year at a tree farm an hour away. My husband grew up with the fresh smell of pine trees at Christmas, and we’ve carried on the fun tradition. This year, I sweet talked him into purchasing a 12 foot pre lit tree. I’ve always wanted a super tall tree, and this being our 3rd Christmas in our home with a tall ceiling, it was a dream I was super excited to fulfill!
I love my wrapping paper to be red, green, and silver. Crazy? I just look for those colors when I need new.
