I’ll be honest, I started decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving this year. I get a twinge of holiday spirit as soon as we get a few flurries of snow, and have to resist putting on Bing Crosby and caroling along. Luckily, most retail stores share my early Christmas vibes and decked their halls around Halloween.
Since I always plan on keeping my holiday décor up for several months, I try to decorate with more of a Winter theme and steer clear of anything too “Santa”. I love the wide variety of mini pine trees you can find just about everywhere these days! From realistic seedlings, to wooden cut-outs, I’m going to show you how I styled my home with these evergreen cuties!
I love having a cozy bedroom during Christmas. I have a fondness for vintage Christmas décor and had found this old-fashioned red truck with snow covered bottle-brush trees a few months ago. I knew it was going to make the perfect nostalgic addition to the bench at the end of my bed. I matched some comfy pillows and a throw to make the look complete.
Speaking of nostalgia, it’s always been a tradition in my home to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas every year. I think we all remember the little Charlie Brown Christmas tree with its droopy branches and bright red ornament. I made my own this year with a fresh pine branch and a vase to keep on my bedside table!
