For a couple of years I’d better decorate our house for Christmas with less decoration but that less decoration may reach that ‘wow’ level for us. Also I have noticed on myself that if I don’t put took many decoration on, after take them off the house wouldn’t has seen kind of empty immediately.
It is interesting but for winter it’s good to use white, grey and light blue mostly. They are so festive and christmassy with the candles and lights. We have decorations what we use again and again because they have a story. Like our ornaments. We put the same collection on every year and each one of them has a meaning for us. I let the kids help me to paint some items as well (like the wood stars in the window) and I really don’t mind that the painting didn’t turn out perfect. They enjoyed to help me, I enjoyed to be with them :-)
