I think this is probably the earliest I have ever started to think about holiday decor. But for some reason I’ve got all these ideas and thoughts running through my head about how I am going to decorate for Christmas. I think because this is the first year with Mason being mobile I’m wondering if we should get a fake Christmas tree in comparison to a fresh tree like we usually have. I’m also wondering if we should have a full size tree on the floor or if I should go for a smaller tree that I can put on top of my fireplace mantle so it’s out of reach of Mason. Or possibly ditch the tree all together this year and opt for fresh garland and wreaths only that I can put on the mantle and hand the wreaths around our wall mounted tv.
When I first mentioned to Justin about what I’ve been thinking his response was, “where will the presents go if we don’t have a full size tree?” “Are we just going to put the presents on the mantle too?” Those are both valid questions and ones I don’t have the answers to, just yet. He also had thoughts about fake verses real and how Mason will either grab the needles that drop on the ground or he could pull off the needles from the fake tree and then be eating plastic in comparison to fresh needles.
I’ve been searching through Pinterest to get some inspiration for our holiday decor but I’d love to hear from fellow mamas what you did once your baby became mobile. Or even if you’re not a mama, do you have any thoughts/suggestions for me? Let me know in the comments and thanks in advance for your help!!
