When Mark and I first bought this house, the overwhelming feeling we had was that this was a home to celebrate Christmas in!

This is what the house look like the first Christmas we had it. We were living in our rowhouse while we had the entire front brick facade redone.

Now that we’re in the house and making it our home…we are decking it out for Christmas! Click this link for my video tutorial on how we trimmed our tree.

Here are the places where I got the trimmings and other decor!
Red berry stems
Snowy pine stems
Gold ribbon
Decorative big tree and smaller tree
