I know. I know. The title of this post has many of you cringing. No matter how we feel about it, November will soon be here. And while I haven’t started decorating for the holidays yet (Don’t panic!), it has been on my mind.
For the last few years, my focus for holiday decorating was on my gift shoppe. Multiple trees and countless displays sucked up most of my holiday decorating energy so that by the time I got around to my own space, I rarely did anything more than put up my Christmas tree. Well, with no shop to decorate and a whole new office space in front of me, I’m kind of excited about the upcoming season.
So much so, that I’ve already started planning and purchasing a few goodies. Some new and some old.
I was also challenged by a company that sells Christmas Trees to decorate a “non-traditional” tree (i.e., a tree that isn’t green pine). And I received this giant peace sign wreath from my friends at CB2 with the invitation to turn it into a unique display. Thankfully, by some miracle, I already have some really cool ideas for both of these pieces. I can’t wait to share them with you.
This year my holiday decorating has been really inspired by color.
I’m also liking anything from the Ghost of Christmas Past (a.k.a. vintage). Just the right amount of vintage tackiness creates fun yet modern holiday cheer. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can pull it off.
I figure though, that if I like these vintage pieces so much on their own, I’m bound to love them in my space. Right?
One way or another, I’m going for it! Have you started planning your holiday decor? What tricks do you have up your sleeve this year?
