You’d think with a family of seven we’d have LOTS of Christmas traditions. And I guess we kind of do, but honestly none of them are extraordinary because… 5 kids. BUT… hang in there with me… the ones we have are practical and fun and things the kids ask about every year!
Last Saturday we had friends over for dinner so I had to officially clean the house and get some holiday decor set up! In the past, I’ve pulled down every last box from the attic and crammed everything into a spot and draped everything over a surface. This year… not so much. I always seem to gravitate towards greenery and… something a little fun.
A few weeks ago, I had the fun opportunity to decorate our playroom for Christmas! It’s not a space that I typically consider for Christmas, but I’m SO glad I did. Obviously, this space gets tons and TONS of kid traffic so I couldn’t bring in anything too cute or fragile. I adore bottle brush trees and they’re basically indestructible so… I started by unpacking all of those first.
