our house is getting festive. we have some minimal lights so far, along with fake wreaths on the railings, and a “real” wreath i doctored up from bare to ribbon-ed and beaded.
and then one day at work i found some garlands in the trash room. 3 lighted 10ish foot strands, and one unlit one. i cant tell you how excited i was when i found them! i wrapped the banister to the second floor with the lighted garland, and then created my own little ditty with the unlit one for over the dining room fireplace.
and here is our tree! post lights, pre ornaments:
