Deck the Halls

Almost every year I have some kind of a theme. Usually rustic Christmas with natural greens and browns and some burgundy thrown in to be festive. Last year it was more teal and burgundy. I usually pick a wrapping paper theme and go from there. This year's theme is relaxed Christmas. We used up bits of all the half rolls of wrapping paper and cut bits of that paper for tags. I let the children do the tree almost entirely. The mantel decorations took over 2 weeks to finish. And it was all fine. It actually looks good I think. And I haven't had any perfectionistic meltdowns. None. That makes it so worth it.
Kinda magical even. Don't ya think?
