Time to Start Thinking about my "Christmas Theme"....

Time to Start Thinking about my "Christmas Theme"....

As a retailer, we start thinking about Christmas right after the last Christmas in January! Because that is when all the new trends are shown at market.  We purchase in the winter, but it doesn't come into our shops until early and late summer.  If we don't have our holiday decor by early summer, we probably aren't going to get what we want.

My year of gold and white....

As far as my home is concerned, I always change the "theme color" every year. I have 4 fireplace mantels and several other spaces I decorate for. So each room flows throughout the home with a touch of the new theme color in our great room.

Do I go and purchase all new things every year? NO! I always start with my base colors of white, antique silver, brass, and clear....then I purchase about 20% new for the new theme that year. 

My year of blue and black....

I always seem to find my inspiration from either a painting or a pillow, and sometimes a holiday decoration that I fall in love with!

My brown and rustic year....

As you can see, I have all these paintings that I bought for a specific wall in my entry way that sets the "theme" for that year! 

The "theme color" for 2019! I fell in LOVE with these pillows at Hobby Lobby, because the green is more of an army pine green, and the red is more of a burgundy.....

So, throughout the year, I started "collecting" the decorations and ribbons based on the color theme of this pillow...

I actually don't start decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but I get it all prepared and ready to go.....cause I always go pretty way out on our large front porch and doors. We pretty much have a tree in every room....except upstairs since all the kids have moved out----and one of these days, I hope to be spending Christmas and decorating at our lake home! (Fingers crossed)

This is my "theme color" for the fall and Thanksgiving....which is what I will start decorating on after Halloween. (I no longer decorate for Halloween because all our kids are grown now, and we live in an area of our neighborhood where there are very few kids anymore!)

Thanks for stopping by, and I will be posting videos and DIY's that I do to decorate my home for the holidays from now until Christmas!

From our home to yours....xoxo  debi
