under the mistletoe.

i love everything about this time of year. especially decorating for christmas - picking out a tree, stringing lights around the house, hanging stockings and santa chachkis everwhere!

but let's get real. there is only so much you can do in a 630 sq ft apartment.

we didn't decorate a whole lot last year since it was a busy month of moving in together, making a trip to san francisco, and just settling in to the new place. but over the last few days i've been finding fun little ways to spruce the place up for the holidays - for cheap. thank god for michael's. it's not much, but it's perfect for us :)

diy wreath - $8

bows - .99 cents each
mistletoe & gingerbread sign - hand-me-down from mom

glitter snowflakes  - hand-me-down from mom
table runner & holiday dish - hand-me-down from mom
pinecones - $2.99

ornaments - .50 cents
string - had
cranberries and leaves - leftover from wreath

our tiny tree! not a diy.
what do you think this is?
costco, baby. $20 bucks.

do you like to decorate for the holidays?

Ooh I love that diy cranberry glass ornament. That looks so cute. And wow, just $20?! Not bad. Thank goodness for moms, they always save the day. =)

How adorable! I love decorating for Christmas! I can't wait to move into a home with a fireplace so I can decorate it like crazy! :)

I like decorating for the holidays and I want a certain color theme. But then it's my father who wants to do the decorations! He wants to see every color! Our Christmas tree has grapes, stars, flowers, balls, in different shapes and colors! haha I still love it though since my dad decorated it with passion. haha ;-) Merry Crhistmas!

Looks so cute. It's so hard to decorate when you don't have space but you did it!

i absolutely love decorating too -- along with all the hustle & bustle of getting ready for the big Christmas day! It is crazy how Christmas seems so for away but then it sneaks up on your so quickly & you have so many little things to still finish.

i really enjoyed meeting you this past sunday at blogger blitz! hopefully we can meet up again!
