It’s finally here! Christmas time also know as my favorite holiday and the most joyful season of them all. This one, in particular, is extra sweet and special. Last Christmas we were still unpacking boxes in our new build, so the fact that we get to decorate and really enjoy the entire process makes it extra special. Also, this Christmas will be our first Christmas as a married couple!
There’s definitely a lot to be thankful for amidst the craziness and uncertainties that COVID-19 has brought to our household and our world. So, if decorating for the holidays, makes us feel better – why not get to it?!
I’ll be sharing my Christmas tree and will share other spots in my home the next few weeks where we are decorating – slowly but surely. First of all, I wanted to share how I start the process of decorating the tree because I feel like this can be overwhelming for some people.
Since this is our first Christmas in our home, we had to purchase a tree! We decided on this 9 ft tree from The Home Depot. It is absolutely lovely and has a realistic vibe to it! The tree has multiple different lighting settings and comes with a remote control. You can have the lights flickering throughout the night or leave them still. If you’re into multi-colored lights, you can also set them to that setting.
We also got this wreath and garland that match to add to it. Those are both really neat because they come pre-lit and the battery box is on the back. They also have a timer setting and stay on for 6 and off for 18 hours! You won’t have to remember to turn it off every night.
