I had a wonderful time putting this year’s Christmas tree and decorations up last week but haven’t taken any photos yet. So for now, we’re going to take a little walk down memory lane while I show you my Christmas decorations from previous years! Starting with last year–Christmas 2007.
Even though Christmas 2007 was our second Christmas in our current house, it was our first one with a full height Christmas tree. We had a very large artificial tree at our last house and discovered we didn’t have a good place for in this one. So I hit up some after-Christmas sales in 2006 and scored this beautiful pre-lit “skinny” tree that fits perfectly in our dining room corner. I had also recently changed the primary color scheme of our main floor to browns and wheat colors, so I decided to decorate for Christmas primarily using golds, bronzes, and creams–a Christmas color scheme I’m so in love with now that I don’t think I’ll ever change it!

In addition to all the gold, I also decided to add a punch of color by doing a small red Christmas tree in the Living Room:
