I tried something new last year and brought out less “Christmas” stuff and opted instead to use some of my favorite everyday things with just a little Christmas sprinkled in.
Such an eye-opener.
Not only was my decorating time cut in half, but I ended up with a look that was a little less cluttered, yet still festive and cozy. Not to mention, the take-down was an absolute breeze.
I loved the simplified look from last year so much that I embraced the same thought again this year.
