Last weekend I was out of town at a friends cabin in beautiful Truckee, Ca. near Lake Tahoe. This is an annual “Girls Weekend” which is a pretty good reason to be a little behind on the holiday decorating! It is so nice to get away with some of your best girlfriends to visit, eat, drink, hot tub in a snow flurry, play some games, and just hang out and chat!
So far, I have changed out my chalkboard to a holiday greeting…
I have also decided to do things a little differently this year. I am using a smaller portion of my holiday decorations, and recently purchased this ornament collection from Home Depot to set my color scheme.
I already use a lot of blue accents in my home and this Martha Stewart collection will work nicely. Now for the next decision…white lights vs. colored lights on the Christmas Tree?
I have always used colored lights on our tree. That is the way our family did it growing up and I loved the colored lights with all the unique and different ornaments. However, now I am in the mood for something different and think I will change out to white this year!
How do you decorate your tree? Are you a colored or white light family?
