My Christmas Decorating Has Begun

Hello, hello! Well, I know you are going to think I've lost my marbles, as I do every November, so it's probably no surprise to you that I have started my Christmas decorating transformation. 
<Insert - rolling the eyes emoticon here> 
I know, I know...C R A Z Y! ;)
I simply can't help myself, I'm ready for some red and green colors!  I searched the web for an "inspiration tree" and tried to copy it. So far, I am in-love with my tree. What you see in the two photos are the beginning stages. This tree is dressed with many different ribbons. As I stated in a previous post, I sold almost all my x-mas decor when we moved. This year, it's almost like starting from scratch. 
I purchased a pre-lit 9ft tree on Sunday and bought a ton of ribbon and Deco Mesh. I had thought about doing a different color theme this year, but decided to stick with what I love best, traditional red and green, it makes me happy! Plus, the kids LOVE it!  Instead of packing the tree with a gazillion ornaments, I will be packing it with a lot of different ribbon. Wait till you see the transformation, it's whimsical! 
I found this at Big Lots yesterday, it still has the tags on it, but these are LED candles, battery operated that come sitting on a tray.  These candles flicker just like a real candle. I'm going to dress this display up with some holiday greens and holly.
 I took all my Fall decor down and placed everything in bins. 
 It always amazes me how fast I can take it all down compared to how long it takes me to put it all out. Ha! 
Stacked my wreaths, ready to go into a box.
 It feels great to have it all put away and now I feel like I'm starting with a blank canvas, ready to paint my vision. ;)
 Bye-bye Fall decor, until next year! 
Below is a sneak peek at my living room mantle.
Back to work....I love decorating for Christmas, it's so much fun! 
Tootles, and thanks for visiting! xo, Liz

  1. I'm with you Liz red and green say Christmas!! Loved seeing all your peeks!

  2. I love to see all the colors for Christmas but I guess I'm traditional with the red and green too! I can't wait to see how gorgeous it is!

  3. You are just too cute, Liz. I love how excited you get about every Holiday. You inspire a lot of people with your enthusiasm and ideas. I LOVE seeing what you are up to----now hurry up and show us MORE! xo Diana

  4. I am ready for some green and red too. I bought some new ornaments this year and can't wait to get them out but since I have Thanksgiving at my house I have to start the next day. I can't wait to see your tree!

  5. I am starting to get in the holiday mood too! I can't wait to see what you do this year!

  6. You are a Woman with a vision... I love it! I also decorate in November because I want to enjoy it as long as I can. I can't wait to see what else you do. Have you ever thought about decorating other peoples homes for a living? Seasonal decorating? You certainly have the talent! You always bring me so much inspiration! Blessings!

  7. You have to start early. Otherwise, Where are the rest of us going to get our inspiration from. I plan to start my house next week. I have parties in December to work on and don't have time for thinking about decorating. Thanks for always being my "go to."

  8. Yay! I enjoyed your fall ideas, but I just love seeing your Christmas decorating the most. I am also happy that you chose to stick with red and green. I always love the traditional color schemes and I just can't get use to the pink/blue/all white/etc colors. It just doesn't "feel" Christmas to me. Have fun decorating and I can't wait to see all of your ideas!! I will be digging out my own Christmas bins tonight.

  9. You crack me up Liz! I figured you would have started by now. I will start probably mid November. Have fun putting all together.

  18. Hi Liz, SO glad you're back. Sitting here staring at my Christmas tubs, out of the "go-go juice" until I saw these pics. Now I'm ready to get another tree done :) I sure WISH I lived close enough when you sold all of your decorations. What a gold mine! Take care :) Thanks for the motivation!
