It’s officially December and now completely socially acceptable to put up Christmas decorations! Don’t tell, but mine have officially been up for a month now. Andrew wasn’t too thrilled. Are you team decorate before Thanksgiving, or after? Thanksgiving is actually my favorite holiday, but we don’t ever host so I feel perfectly fine going ahead and decorating for Christmas early!
Today on Delightfully Dorn I am sharing all the Christmas decorations around my home! If you haven’t decorated yet, maybe this will get you in the spirit. And if you have and you see something you like, then definitely wait until after Christmas to buy it when it’s 90% off.
Every year we put up 4 trees in our house. This is our main tree and we purchased it from Lowe’s last year! It is 9 feet tall and you can shop it here! Although I like a perfectly matching tree, I really love having a tree that tells a story about our family. I collect ornaments from everywhere we travel and have inherited ornaments from my grandmother when she passed away. There are LOTS of homemade ornaments on our tree that Andrew and I made when we were kids and our parents saved for us! Across the living room, we have this smaller 6 foot tree that I have officially dubbed ‘Peyton’s Tree’ this year!
Sharing some links for items pictured above: Similar wooden bead lantern linked here; Last year my cousin got me the Christmas tree advent calendar from Pottery Barn. They aren’t sold anymore, but I linked their new version here, so cute and on MAJOR sale!; I wanted to take a quick minute and share that ALL these ornaments you see all over the house are from Dollar Tree! I probably have a thousand of them and just throw them wherever I can. You get a pack of 10 for $1.00; I found this white tree with LED lights at our local antique mall and linked a similar one here; Again, these fake poinsettias and berries came from the Dollar Tree!; This bread bowl sits on my dining room table as the centerpiece. I got this one from a local store, Southern Chicks Market, and linked a similar one here.
My Mom gifted us with our stockings the Christmas right before we got married! They are from Pottery Barn and I chose the very classic look because I thought they would never go out of style, or out of stock! I always wanted to be able to add to our collection with matching stockings for our future children. We have the large size. Pro Tip: I bought Peyton’s stocking in the middle of July and got it for maybe ten dollars and that included personalization. What a steal!
The garland pictured here sits on our mantle and we just purchased it a couple weeks ago at Chestnut Living‘s Christmas Market! This company is run by some dear family friends and I am here to tell you, they are pretty much the Chip & Jo of South Carolina. They decorated their home for Christmas and opened it to the public to shop! I purchased two pieces of this garland, two wreaths for the front door, the wood logs pictured above, and a few other little touches of decor! Everything seen in the photos below is from Chestnut Living! These people have such a special eye for beautiful decor and we are so happy to have some of it in our home this year!
