Yes, we are THAT family. Christmas graced our presence the day after Halloween. I always like to add to our decor each year, so I felt it necessary to pull items out early so I don't buy without a plan. We also are not perfect and you'll likely see mismatched ornament hangers and my lightbulb wire peeking through, but this year has been a journey of learning that perfection isn't the goal each time. This Christmas tree came together beautifully with little hands involved accompanied by a Pentatonix Christmas playlist!

Our faux Christmas tree from Balsam Hill got a few upgrades this year. And yes, it's faux. All our live trees would die every year, because we all know that I am a terrible plant keeper. I purchased a handful of glitter branches and pinecone bunches from Target's Christmas clearance last year and they made their debut this year. I added some more ribbon to the tree with this simple linen ribbon from Walmart. I love my "Joy to the World" ribbon, but I've never been able to find it since I bought it 2 years ago. Insert sad face. I've also always used globe lights to give the tree a unique look! We actually use globe lights on our exterior too which I think looks so charming!

***Full disclosure: Yes, there is a clothespin baby Jesus that Asher made in preschool and Lila's LOL ornament is tucked in the tree as well, so aren't I the fun mom?! ;)

I'm obsessed with twinkle lights for Christmas. They are everywhere. But I added these gold lanterns from Walmart and threw in a strand of twinkle lights to spruce them up. They are on a timer so I don't have to worry about turning them on each night! I don't always shop for Christmas decor in the Christmas aisle. So these lanterns were a sweet find!

I've slowly added this modern village to our laundry hall! It's on the way to the guest bath so I love decorating these little niches to spread Christmas cheer! I placed some battery operated tea lights inside these ceramic houses and they light up in the evenings automatically!

I've added some look-alike options below to incorporate into your personal Christmas decor. Christmas is my favorite time of year so I hope some of this festive decor helps spread joy in your home! Merry Christmas!
