Christmas Decorating

12:19 PM

Now that Thanksgiving is over I feel I can really delve into the endless realms of Christmas decorating. There are so many wonderful ways to decorate and rarely is there a wrong way to do this.

My mother's mother was 1st generation Croatian and spoke Croatian and Italian fluently. Her idea of Christmas came from what she knew in Croatia. My Father's Father was 2nd generation Swedish so growing up my mom always decorated with a lot of wheat and red and green colors.

There are so many different ways to decorate. From retro to vintage, Victorian to country, contemporary to traditional. I love all of these styles and only wish I could change up my house each year with a new design idea. But that would take a lot more time and money than I have at the present. ;)
Here are just a few rooms decorated for Christmas that I just love. For more Christmas decorating ideas go to Ideal Home and there are a bunch, you'll be sure to find the one that fits your own unique style.
I love this idea of the jars, so simple and pretty.
