Holiday Decorating

I love to decorate for the holidays.  There’s practically no room in our home that doesn’t have some type of decoration in it during the season.  I started doing mantle scapes a few years ago.  This is one that I put up early in October and use through Halloween and Thanksgiving.  It’s perfect for the whole Fall season!!

Trees also are not just for Christmas anymore.  I do a Fall tree that has all the harvest colors with ornaments including fall leaves, acorns, sunflowers – anything that means Fall harvest season to me.  I love having the fall tree because now I can have some sort of a tree up in our house for, uh, three months!!  The first year I put up the Fall tree the trick or treaters came by on Halloween night and wanted to know why we had our Christmas tree up already.  I started to explain to the kids that, No it is a fall tree with harvest items etc. and after looking at their puzzled expressions and figuring out that they really just wanted their candy so they could move on to the next house I gave up.  I still put the Fall tree up every year!
