my christmas decor
white reindeer (michaels) // pine cone limbs (target) // garland around bookcase (target) // white village houses (target) // gold tinsel (target last year, similar linked) // white stockings (target last year) // gold christmas tree figurine (michaels) // red santa (can’t remember) // gold lights around mirror (target) // white pre-lit christmas tree (last year, can’t remember)
I have to confess… one of my very favorite things about this whole “adulting” process has been getting to decorate my very own place for Christmas! I started out my senior year of college with a single garland, and now, year after year, I add a few more festive touches.
Last year was my first year to have a tree… and man does it change everything! And now that my apartment has a fireplace, things feel extra cozy. Let’s just say, Christmas decorations make everything so much better, and when it comes to living alone, I think they’re one of the better ways to keep from feeling lonely!
While my apartment is a far cry from “winter wonderland,” I thought it would be fun to show you how I’ve decorated it this year. All of the decorations have been inexpensive items I’ve happened upon here and there, but I love the festive element they add to this space!
My dream is to one day have a big, real tree and a huge light display on my house (a girl can dream, right?) but until then, this cozy little Christmas apartment will do just fine. :) I hope you enjoy!
Love from Texas,
P.S. My mother and I are off to Vail, Colorado today! And I am giddy. We’ve never been before, so if you have any recommendations for food, activities, or beautiful spots we need to see, please let me know!
