Last year, Mr. Knight and I went all out and made a video to celebrate the holiday season. What is it about us and making simple tasks become out of control projects?
How to Decorate a Tree in 2 Minutes Flat! from Mrs Gator on Vimeo.
From our wedding album (sneak peek coming soon), to our christmas cards, to videos for family weddings, to simply just decking out our tree with holiday decor – we sure know how to make more work for ourselves!
Anyways, this year we plan to make another Christmas Tree video (which might even become an annual event). We don’t want to do the exact same thing as last year, because that would be boring. Super boring. This year will mark our first Christmas together as a married couple. With that, we want to make this Christmas extra special, and we want our video to reflect this special year in our lives.
The decorating for “Our First Christmas” has already started with this little ornament (complete with stand!) from Nordstroms.
Saw it. Bought it approximately 5 seconds later. Love it.
Yes, that is a labeled jar in the background. Did I mention I was out of control?
I also picked up the most ADORABLE stocking for Gator Kitty and Pepper to share.
Yes, the stocking is hanging from an antenna (that Mr. Knight isn’t even using, no idea why it’s there). Picking up a stocking hanger for the babies is next on my list!
And “Our First Christmas” shopping wouldn’t be complete without stockings for each other.
$10 each, Target
Mr. Knight’s is tan and mine is the green one. We plan to attach something to each for our alma maters. We both happened to choose stockings to match the Knights and the Gators. Imagine that.
Do you see a trend in my decor shopping? I hope so. I plan to go all out in neutrals, greens, and reds. Bold and modern is what I’m going for, with a hint of traditional. Is that even a style?
My next favorite shopping day after Black Friday? The day after Christmas. When purchasing Christmas decor becomes affordable. So excited!
So, the plan for this weekend is to put the tree up and make a video in the process. We brainstormed for about 30 minutes on what we are going to do, lets see how it turns out. Wish us luck!!
Do you have any traditions you started as a couple? I’d love to hear them!
By the way, I’ve missed y’all like crazy. I hope you missed me too! Mr. Knight and I have been busy busy bees and I have tons of things to share with you. I can’t wait! :)
