Can you believe I’m already talking about taking down our holiday decorations? I know, it’s crazy, but don’t worry I’m not trying to rush you along. In fact, if you are anything like me, you’ve barely had a chance to enjoy them since there’s been so much excitement and magic happening with the holiday season.
There is something special about Christmas holiday decorations that makes it officially feel like winter and brings such a warm and cozy feeling to the home, which I absolutely love! Because a lot of my Christmas decorations include things like winter greens, I actually like taking them down and packing things away in phases. By removing just the Christmas elements and leaving the winter basics it gives me the opportunity to continue to enjoy some of my most favorite things, like the twinkle of white lights intertwined with beautiful greens. They create the perfect ambient lighting and are a beautiful backdrop for the winter season.
However, maybe you are no longer feeling wistful for that holiday charm because your tree and greens are turning brown and you just want your house back to normal, which believe me, when that time comes, I’m definitely on board with that!
