decorating OUR first HOME for CHRISTMAS

i was so excited to decorate adam and my first apartment together for Christmas, i just couldn't wait.
He is the reason for the season. a fontanini nativity set we got from my aunt as a wedding gift. love it.
i couldn't resist this good buy from wal-mart. i love wreaths and i love anything red berry for the holiday season.
i got the little trees in the middle of the table from the dollar tree. oh golly, how much i love the dollar tree! i got the candle rings from kohl's half-off. everything else i already had.
a view of our living room. i decorated with mostly red and some gold.
our first Christmas tree as a married couple.
a view of the fireplace. i love stockings and i love these simple stockings i found at garden ridge. they were 8 dollars each. i got the wreath and garland half-off at garden ridge, too. you probably can't tell but the wreath is greenery with red berries and pine cones on it. i love decorations that are from nature (even if they're fake, haha!).
another view of our living room. on the coffee table, i have pine cones decorated with gold glitter on them.

it's probably a good thing i don't have more space to decorate this season!!
