I was starting to get itchy to decorate during this long stretch between Easter and Halloween. It was breaking my heart to think of my 100+ trees sitting lonely in the attic. Sure, there have been a few trees here and there for summer, Mother’s Day and Cinco de Mayo but I needed a big holiday fix. I needed a garland on the mantle, mini trees, pinwheels and a tree topper made of presidential spoons. I needed to go big or go home for my 4th of July decor.
One of the reasons I bought my current house (ya know besides the giant swimming pool and good schools) was that there was a Christmas tree nook. I knew it was a sign that I was meant to keep that nook adorned with a seasonal tree year round. I have kept good on my promise for over 2 years.
I think my living room with the navy couch lends it’s self to the patriotic look. I mean come on, I have a bench with the US flag on it the room all year long.
