Seasonal Decorations in my Home

I know I'm a bit late with decorating the house for the season that is in full swing by now, but with learning for the state law exam, which I passed recently, there just wasn't much time. I'm now catching up with all of these chores, and in this post I wanted to show you my tree, which is much different then the one we did last year.

This is the finished result of my work, but let's take a few steps back.


I chose a tree that had different shades of green as well as some white snow tips. It gives a really great texture and richness.


I chose red and gold, the classical color combination, white lights, and these pine cones that you can attach with wires to the tree.


This is the look of the decorated tree at day.


Next are two shots from the night.




How is the spirit of the season reflected in your home?

  3. This looks great. I don't decorate the van or really celebrate Christmas at all. I am working New Years Eve so I'll miss that as well.

  11. Sehr schön Mersad. Ich mag Weihnachten nicht und dieses Jahr kann ich mit der Stimmung gar nicht mitkommen, ich bin innerlich noch in den Tropen und will mit Winter gar nichts zu tun haben. :-) Liebe Grüße

  12. Congratulations on passing your state law exam! Your tree is lovely and from where it stands in the corner windows, I imagine it's beautiful from the outside of your home, too.

  31. Your post is very tastefully done. I like the way you describe your preparation for Christmas.
    As I celebrated my eighty- first birthday last week, I still have a room with many flowers, so I had no time to do some Christmasdecorations. This week and next week we sing Christmas Carols.
    Have a great and merry X- mas!

    1. My tree is also artificial. I wouldn't want to cut down a real tree, just to decorate my home.
