Just 8 short days left until Christmas! I can’t believe it — I feel like as soon as my Birthday rolls around then in just a blink of an eye it’s Christmas Eve. Today’s post is about how I got my apartment into the Christmas spirit, I love decorating my apartment all year long but there is just something so magical about Christmas decorations.
I kept with a very 1950s traditional theme in my apartment this year. The living room is mostly teal red and silver and my dining room has a little more glitz. Here is a fun photo tour of our wonderful decorations!
In my living room I went with a bit of a classic feel. I put garland with fairy lights around my tv.
I displayed a vintage Instant Snow sign with a little tree and babbles I got at Target on our book shelf.
Then by my couch I put out a jar with holiday candy and a little DIY shadow box I created last year filled with pom poms and jingle bells.
In my dining room I went with a different theme going with some unconventional colors. I hung bobbles from my curtain rod with fishing line to give it the illusion of them floating.
On the other side I hung my Happy Holidays bunting I got from Target last year as well as some little colored trees I found at Target as well. Our table runner is silver with sequin trees in the same color theme as the bobbles.
It was an exciting year because my boyfriend and I got our first real tree! We covered it in traditional bobbles in the same colors as the dining room.
