We even got an early start with warm festive drinks, and even putting up not 1 but 2 holiday trees the day after Thanksgiving. But somehow hosting a baby shower, attending a wedding, performing on stage at a company holiday party (the bf, not me), movie night, theme park, an unexpected home project, and being sick twice didn't help.
This is what we've managed. And at this point, it's not worth it to go any further, right?
Also on the pass through ledge, a Christmas Tree scented candle because our artificial trees have none, alongside some glass tea light holders (received as a gift a few years ago)
The gift on the left is not from me, but wrapped by me - yep it's wrapped in comics. And the white box on the bottom right is still in it's shipping box because if I know my parents well enough, the gift itself is not wrapped (wrapping would add to additional shipping weight, duh).
I welcome any easy or thrifty holiday decor ideas you may have.
Next year we'll do better...
