It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around our house! Due to the craziness of the season, we finally got the chance to get our tree up this weekend and just in time since my brother and grandmother are coming to town tomorrow. So, here’s a little glimpse into our Christmas decorations!

Southern Exhilaration: Deck the HallsIt is always so fun to open up all the ornaments and put them on the tree. Each ornament has a special memory associated with it, whether it was a trip or graduation or special event.

My mom got me some great ornaments from World Market to represent my european adventure this summer. Eiffel Tower for Paris and clogs for Amsterdam! I’m considering adding little rhinestones to show where all I’ve been with my world travels on the globe. What do you think?

Southern Exhilaration: Deck the HallsThe pickle is a family tradition. Every year on Christmas morning, my mom hides the pickle somewhere on the Christmas tree, and my brother and I would then go on a pickle hunt. The person to find it first gets some moola! It’s so much fun searching for it, and my mom has gotten very creative over the years as to where she’s hidden the pickle!

Every year we do a Santa Clause theme in our den. We normally have a tree dedicated with all our Santas, but to due to the need of extra seating we just set out a few of our Santas.

Our nutcrackers always stand guard of our festivities on the stair.

What are some of your favorite Christmas decorations?

  • Thank you! 🙂 And I thought it would be cute too. Hopefully the idea in my head is what happens when I try to execute it! Haha.

  • Omg I love the Christmas pickle! That’s so cute! My Dad used to hide a squirrel deep inside of the tree just like in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. 🙂

    I’d vote no on the rhinestone globe. If you have little ornaments to symbolize each location I would keep doing that and leave the globe to symbolize a love of travel.
