We don't start hanging the greens until after the Army-Navy Game, but my mind's been hard at work.
We've decked our halls with rich colors, needlepoint stockings, and blown glass ornaments the last few years. After admiring Pottery Barn's pale greens and whites, I walked into Walmart...only to be greeted by a giant tree covered with chartreuse globes. Call me trendy, but I'm ready to lighten and brighten our look.
I can't afford to replace what few decorations I own. I'll have to find a fresh take, free of cost. I'm starting with this green bridge cloth, which we bought as a gift for my late grandmother-in-law. It might look good angled across the table, with a centerpiece of citrus fruit.
In the meantime, I'll be busy scavenging for more light green and yellow accents: in my gift closet, in the rag bag, and outdoors.
Do you change your holiday decorating from year to year? If so, how do you do it on a budget?
