This time of year, with the holidays fast approaching, (I'm the person who gets giddy when I see Christmas decorations pop up in October. I know.) I start to gather ideas for pretty wrappings, DIY ornaments and decor. Last year, I wanted to find a way to celebrate our first Christmas as a married couple. I got a little lazy and just crumbled up some of our dried wedding flowers and put them in a clear glass ball ornament. But wouldn't it be nice to take one element from your big day and incorporate it into your first Christmas together? Do you even still care at that point?
I still did.
Make a garland! Use your old invitations and combine them with pretty holiday colors to create a garland to brighten up your first year together.
Or cut your invitation into little ribbons and curl them up in a clear glass ornament.
This looks much better than ours.
Or keep it simple and snap some cute pics of you two love birds decorating your first tree together.
Either way, you better be enjoying some adult egg nog and chowing down on whatever sweets you just brought back from the office party.
So how about it? Did you or will you find a way to celebrate your first holiday season together?
And, I'm so sorry for talking about December already. I promise I still love you, Halloween.
