Homemade Christmas

Our very first Christmas together as a married couple is fast approaching -- well, is already here. We don't have much room in our apartment for a tree, and we don't have much money to spend on buying lots of decorations that we'll just have to store and move over the next few years anyway.

But how to make our little home feel like Christmas?

We spent most of our weekend doing just that. Armed with paper, scissors, and some imagination, we made Christmas.

(Be kind and remember I don't claim to be a professional photographer.)

We hung snowflakes cut from notebook paper and Anthropologie catalogues from our kitchen pass-through.

They make magic shadows.

Cake stand, old book, sugar = winter.
(the light was terrible)

Some greenery, more paper trees, and a mason jar.

Same theme, different notes.

It's simple, and definitely not Martha Stewart, but we're happy.

  1. I love all this! How creative you two are. We put blue lights on our jade tree . . . and an electric candle in my study window. That's pretty much Christmas here. :)
