I know the rule is to start decorating for Christmas AFTER Thanksgiving, but I just could not wait to start decorating our new house for Christmas! So, I broke the rules and started decorating…a few days ago. I found these garland balls and bought some little ornaments, do-dads, and fake poinsettia flowers at a craft store and made these wreath balls to hang on the windows in the living room! As a centerpiece for our dining room table, I was going to go hunting for some pine cones to spray paint red & white and set in a clear bowl. But, I got lazy and just bought a bunch of red ornaments to put in the bowl instead. I was presently surprised at how good they look!
We are going out of town for Thanksgiving day and in preparation, I haven’t made anything spectacular…yet. I have a few recipes I am going to try out for the first time and if they are a hit, I will definitely share them after Thursday.
