I was pretty excited to host my very first Christmas dinner with my family. A little intimidated by the size of the house I put up some pretty basic decorations. On the exterior of the house, lights and garland. On the door a homemade wreath.
The wreath cost less than $10.00 to make. All the material was purchased from the Christmas section in the Belleville Bibles for Missions. The wreath was purchased with no flowers or decorations on it. The flowers were sold in a bunch which I chopped apart to spread out evenly through out. The flower stems are wires so I was able just twist them in to the wreath. Voila! A wreath that’ll last many years to come.
A dream of mine since I was young was to have a big front window to put my tree in front of. And this house has it. I put the tree up December 1st and kept it up in to the new year (2017).
My niece and nephew were very happy that Santa knew where to find them.
Since we are celebrating Christmas in Toronto this year I decided to put up very little decorations this year. The exterior is all decked out of course. There is nothing more beautiful at this time of the year than the Christmas lights around the neighbourhoods. Each house creative and unique.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
