I have a hard time with Christmas decorations because I like too many "Christmas styles." I love the traditional red and green style, but I also love the more elegant silver and gold combination. This year I kind of split my room and did two different styles. The perfectionist in me was fighting it and I kept going back and forth, but then I just said to myself, "You know what?! Who is really going to care?!!" This is how I decorated my entry table using stuff I had:
During our Thanksgiving vacation in WA we made darling little gingerbread houses, all red and green, and my talented sister in-law made me that fabulous tulle wreath
And in my apothecary jars I used some small ornaments mixed with pine cones.
Now, the other side of my room I used my decor that I purchased a couple years ago. It's in grays, silvers, and golds. I hung small wreaths from my curtain rods using ribbon. Very simple and inexpensive.
I bought my Christmas decorations a couple years ago and am proud to say I only spent $50. I gave myself a budget and stuck to it, and I have to admit I think it looks pretty great for $50.
It's a combination of stuff from Michaels, Target, and Walmart.
