I absolutely love a decorated Christmas tree. It’s such a beautiful tradition that I enjoy year after year. It’s something our entire family is involved in, and each ornament and decoration has a special meaning to us. This year we had to buy a new Christmas tree. It was hard, because my husband and I had one we absolutely adored for 11 years. It was massive and well made, and we just couldn’t find one that looked as real (and in a reasonable price range). We ended up going with a 7′ tree from Sam’s Club, and after decorating turned out pretty nice. It’s still incomplete as we need to add a few trimmings, but I love it all the same.
I would love for you to post, blog, instagram or Tweet a photo of your Christmas tree (or seasonal decoration, whichever you prefer!) and link up below. Be sure to visit the other links as well, and spread some Christmas cheer! And as always, thanks for being a DomesticDebacle.com reader.
