Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. While I am not a religious church-goer, I am a religious Christmas decorator. This year I set up a new personal record of three Christmas trees. In early November I went through all of my decorations with my fellow Christmas addict, Becca. We sussed out exactly where I was.. lacking, planned out all my tree decorations, and cleaned out the stuff I really wasn’t using. What I’m trying to say is all of today’s purchases were totally justified, I swear.
I can’t believe this this, but I think my Mom and I have been day-after-Christmas decor shopping for almost 10 years now. This year she picked me up at 8:00 a.m. and we headed straight for Target. We also stopped at Wal-Mart, Menards, Dunkin’ Donuts (gotta fuel up for serious shopping powers), Kohl’s, Dollar Tree, and Hobby Lobby. Everything I bought throughout the morning was at least 50%-75% off. Without further ado, My 2015 Holidecor Haul!
I tried to limit myself when it came to buying wrapping paper. I have way too many rolls already, but when I saw this sweet little angel with her perfect dutch braid, I couldn’t not get it. I also got a color matching roll with poinsettias and gold accents. To go along with the wrapping paper I grabbed these sweet tags from Sugar Paper. I sort of absolutely hate the sticker tags. I mean, I have this gorgeous paper, why would I want to cover it up with something that doesn’t perfectly match? Wrap game strong.
The largest of my trees is a pre-lit white pencil tree, which I got a couple years ago on the day after Christmas from Menards. This year it is decked out in shades of blue, purple, and pink. While I love it, I am ready for something a little more light and bright. I picked up this big box of ornaments that are more in the theme I am wanting, but that will allow me to still use several ornaments that are currently on the tree. This whole box cost me $10.00, and the smaller tree shaped box cost $2.50. Despite the tree being pre-lit I still wanted to add some colored lights, so I got this strand of pink lights. Can someone please tell me why all lights don’t also come on white strands? I may or may not also add the twinkle lights, and the colored lights.. but that could possibly be too many lights….
My number one mission and reason for waking up at 6:45 a.m., these beautiful bottle brush trees from Target. I am a bottle brush addict. It’s easier to tell in the first picture, but these trees are actually quite large. I wish I had been able to get a teal one, but these were the only colors they had left at our Target. Still very happy with what I got!
Well, that wraps up my Holidecor haul! Sally and her nasty eye boogers love Christmas almost as much as I do. I mean, that would explain why she’s always all up in my business whenever I’m wrapping presents or decorating. Did you go day after Christmas shopping? So like, I guess what the rest of the world would call Boxing Day shopping? If so, what did you get?
