Do you have a theme or color scheme to decorate your home for Christmas?
I typically find gorgeous and beautifully colored ornaments from a variety of stores. I've collected quite many of them over the years and can't bear to part with some.
I peruse the aisles of Target, Pier 1, Michaels and other stores to get the right color combo for my tree each year. I consider myself to be a girly girl and my tree colors usually incorporate pinks, purples, turquoise, lime green and silver.
Since this year is my son's last official Christmas at home I promised he could choose the colors and he decided on royal blue and gold. I'm cool with that..except I decided to sprinkle some silver in the mix. While I was out doing a little shopping on Sunday I picked up a few items at Michaels 50% Christmas decor sale. The items pictured below cost me less than $20. Because they were on sale already I didn't use a coupon.
The first box is the exact color that I was looking for. Then I saw the gold ornaments that reminded me of cupcakes, looking at them now,,,they sort of look like acorns. ..hahaha. Either way, they're pretty darn cute! Then I ran across the beads that I love and I have them in turquoise from previous years. I will either find more ornaments in this same shade of blue or go with a variety of blues.
Let's see how my decor progresses as I shop around at my favorite stores. I found a Michaels gift card on my dresser that I plan to use for a few more items while their sale lasts. It's not a big haul..but they were pretty good finds on my first trip out for decorations this year.
