I love the idea of decorating for the holidays, but I’m not a huge fan of traditional Christmas decorations. The compromise I’ve come up with is to decorate with jewel tones, and accent with exotic birds and butterflies.
I think that there’s a pretty good chance that my husband hates it, but it makes me happy, so he allows it 🙂
This was the first time I’ve had a mantle to decorate for the holidays. I had to physically resist putting birds or butterflies up there, but I think the candy garland I added is quite enough.
