Every holiday season, we find ourselves making several trips to The Home Depot…whether it’s for holiday decor, festive scented candles, or some tools and hooks to hang everything up with, they always seem to have the best classic Christmas decorations. The other night after dinner we headed to our local store and stocked up on some holiday decor and I was over the moon excited. It was the first of our holiday shopping this year for decorations and it brought me back to being a kid, making Christmas lights runs with my dad to get a few more strands for the front yard and extra bows for all the wreaths. I even spotted some of those cute light up wired reindeer that I have had my eyes on each year for the front yard.
We usually go with real garland and wreaths, and I still might incorporate a few around the house, but I couldn’t resist the pre-lit decor at The Home Depot this year. The ease of it all drew me in (plus, no mess) and we picked up several strands of garland for the mantel and archways in our home. It was so fun setting everything up in the living room and dining room and seeing everything twinkle. I’m such a kid at heart when it comes to the holidays. It all just makes the house feel warm and cozy, especially after just moving back in after the renovation a few weeks ago. Holiday decorations are like instant happiness…and I feel like thats why i always go with pops of the classic red and green.
Scented candles are a must around here for the holidays. We’re always suckers for the Christmassy scents and this year Glade® released a Holiday fragrance collection with Enchanted Evergreens and Nutcracker Delight. Of course we had to pick up one of each and sprinkle them around our house for the ultimate holiday experience. I think the Enchanted Evergreens might be our favorite. It has that perfect forest scent that immediately reminds you of the holidays.
We added this wreath to the entry door. I still need to pick up a mat for over there, oops!, but the jolliness of the room is enough for now. 😉
We’re all about the pre-lit Christmas tree…are you sensing a pattern here? 😉 We got ours a few years back on sale after Thanksgiving and it’s still going strong. Are you a white lights or rainbow lights family? We’ve always done white lights around here.
Another way to a festive scent to add to your home is with the Glade® scented oil plug-ins from their Holiday fragrance collection. Because we always opt for a faux tree, I like to nestle these little plug-ins behind the tree in our living room and the mini one in our bedroom to give the rooms that real Christmas tree feel. They come in both the Enchanted Evergreens and Nutcracker Delight scents, as well.
A few other things we picked up were ribbon and bows, tape for wrapping presents, and a ton of 3M hooks….we hang everything with them: garland, wreaths, even picture frames. They come in handy this time of year. I still may go back for those outdoor reindeer and a few poinsettias, but we’ll see. Home Depot also delivers all of their real plants, so that’s been a game changer. 🙂
