Posts Tagged ‘getting the christmas tree’

I start decorating my house for the holidays somewhat early. I do it little by little and change it up every year.

One of the first things I do, is to decorate oranges. We put cloves into them in different patterns. They smell divine and they are so decorative in the fruit bowls or bowls of nuts. You could also tie a red ribbon around them and hang them up.

I also start making little craft projects such as christmas tree “crackers”, flower arrangements and anything else that I feel like doing at the time. I usually would give them all away but try to hang on to a few of them for us.

The house always has a bowl of nuts. The only thing bad about that, is that you might step on lost nutshells.

It always feels as a big even to go and get the christmas tree.

I used to be a control freak (some of my friends might at this time smile and say “used to be…?”) and had to decorate the tree myself. Thank god I am over that. It really takes lot’s of time to hang all those little ornaments. I stick to somewhat very traditional Swedish ornaments or styles. The colors would be white/red/silver and clear (glass). The types would be regular glass ornaments, wooden ones, straw ornaments, Swedish crafty ones and then all those mishmash ones that you love but they don’t really go with anything.

Our tree differ in size and shape every year, but it always looks very Nordic.

The neighborhood where I live has lot’s of “crazy Christmas decorators”.

Here are some that would burn through any power line in a second.
