  1. We need to decorate all over our house without a Christmas tree…Why no tree ? Because our cat Kevin Bacon is a wild man and destroys the tree…I reply sad faced… These decorations shown are amazing!!! Christmas for me, no tree for Kevin!!!!Tree stays in the forest!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE !!!!

  2. I hadn’t even thought about decorating for Christmas yet but I will be saving this. My girls are old enough to really get into decorating for the holidays and like to add their own flare. We all loved looking thru your images. Looks like we may be shopping for decorations sooner than I thought. 🙂

  3. I want ALL the decorations! We live in a little basement apartment, so that’s not realistic, but now I have some great idea of what we CAN do with our little space. Thanks for posting this guide! 🙂
