Her natural and neutral Christmas tree is decorated with lots of whites and brown shades along with ornaments made from natural elements like wood and metals.

What date should Christmas decorations be put up?

Well, that’s debatable.  Haha!  While traditionally Christmas decor is put up on the first Sunday of Advent, which is usually the first Sunday after Thanksgiving, a lot of people like to enjoy their decor a little longer.

We have been putting up our Christmas decorations in early November for as long as I can remember.  Of course, there’s always some Thanksgiving tucked in as well and I love how the two can be beautifully blended for a cozy and inviting holiday home.
