Each year when we drag our Christmas decorations down from the attic, we often debate over which items we should use and which items we should skip. With a three year old, we brought out mostly items that could withstand her curiosity. After trimming our tree, hanging our stockings, & arranging the nativity… the little one was not satisfied.
“Let’s go decorate our garden!” she said.
I looked at the small strand of outdoor lights that we used in years past and knew that just wouldn’t do. So with the help of my little elf & the Kmart Holiday Shop we set out to bring a little Christmas magic to our front yard.
Before we headed to the store, I checked out Kmart’s offerings online but it came as no surprise to me that the store was nearly out of stock of my favorite decorations.
When I was first thinking about decorating outdoors, I didn’t think about creating a space on our front porch that would be an inviting holiday space. Plan B made me rethink our shopping list and I was very pleased with what we went home with!
- Two spiral trees
- One tabletop tree
- 24″ grazing doe
- glittered pinecones
- giant elf
- seasonal door mat
- peppermint placemats
- 2 bows with dangling Christmas balls
Totally drab to Christmas Fab
All of these items combined with a few leftovers in the attic were about to give our house some holiday curb appeal! Once home, we emptied our bags, assembled our trees, & got busy decorating our “garden”.
The true test of whether we achieved the results we were after was with our expert: the three year old. Were we able to create a magical garden using old items from the attic and a $100 budget from Kmart? Oh, you’ll just have to wait and see…
Until then, I invite you to check out my Google+ slideshow of our entire shopping & decorating experience!
