Christmas Decorations Part 1

1. Pick a Theme:

For me, ever since I had my very 1st apartment and I put up my very own 1st Christmas tree, I felt one of the most important things about decorating for Christmas was to have a 'theme'. Be it the colors: reds, blues, golds, silvers, etc. or the style: contemporary, traditional, country, etc.

My theme for the last 2 years has been for my tree: reds, silvers and whites. And for around the house I have added in splashes of green.

NOTE: A reminder from last year's 3 post rantings ~ please avoid the tinsel at all cost! Not good for pets and not good for babies!

A Good Christmas

I love the Christmas theme idea. It looks very organized and turns out so pretty.
I've always had more of an eclectic style. Maybe because I've inherited my mother's artsy outlook on design, or maybe I'm just lazy when it comes to decorating ;) It generally comes out somewhat pretty though.
Have you got all your decorations up yet? I was hoping to get ours done this week, but I became ill, so we're postponing until this weekend (we've got outside done, but that's it).
Lastly, I hear ya on the tinsel thing! Hi-larious!

Indeed ~ all my decorations are up! A full job for a Saturday morning. :)

Pretty decorations and yeah, no tinsel! We choose themes that have special meaning to us whether it be cats or culture or places visited - something to bring other memories into our Christmas memories.

And good to see a tinsle warning out!! All it took was seeing one kitteh nibble and tinsle was no more!

Of course the next year I had the bright idea to put on popcorn & cranberry chains instead. *sigh* We won't go there... ;-)

Hmmm..all this time I didn't think I actually had a theme. Until I got to your last photo and remembered that two years back I developed this complete love for pears...and bought myself some beautiful pears for my tree. So I think I do have a small theme in my decorating...with variations.
