Have the Best Dressed Home for the Holidays

It’s that time of the year!  Time to start pulling out all the Christmas decor and decorating for the holidays.

I love our Christmas tree!  It’s definitely one of the highlights of our holiday decor.  

The tree is 9 feet tall and pre-lit.  I always disliked stringing the lights on the tree and about 14 years ago, I bit the bullet and bought a pre-lit christmas tree. (This was back before pre-lit trees were the thing and the lights are hand wrapped around every limb.) 

The tree comes apart in 3 pieces and you just have to make sure all the light strands are plugged in.  So easy to put together!

Hubby has pulled out all our holiday decor for me to start sorting through.  

I have to say, my ornament collection has gotten pretty shabby over the last few years.  Most of the ornaments were glass and every holiday, there are fewer and fewer left to un-pack.  

I’ve decided, this is the year I am going to refresh my Holiday Decor!

I like to shop online, so my first stop?   Kmart!

You’ve got to take a moment and check out their online holiday shop.  (I like the free ship to store option for shipping, but you can also get free shipping on orders of $59 or more.)


They’ve got trees on sale!  If I didn’t already have a pre-lit tree, I would get this one in a heartbeat!  It’s 7.5 feet tall and pre-lit, with a surprise.  The lights can be either white or multi-colored- just flip a switch.  You can keep this tree for a long time and never get tired of your light colors!  (The best part?  It’s on sale for $134, which I would gladly pay for a color changing pre-lit tree.)



My tree’s color theme is silver, purple and gold.  I still love the color scheme, and found some fabulous tree trimming packages that blend right in with what I have!  A gold- 50 count shatterproof ornament pack and a purple- 50 count shatterproof ornament pack.)



They have other colors too, if I ever do update my color scheme, I might have to do blue and silver.


I also want some new garland for the mantel.  I’m torn between the pre-lit white flocked with red berries or the gold w/ white flowers (on right.)  They’re the same price.  Which do you prefer?
